Halloween with Gossmere

It’s Tiddly Challenge time! Woo! Aaaand it’s October! You know what that means, right? Oh, yes! Spooks!

I used Gossmere and once again had fun playing around with my copics. I just tossed various zig-zag lines for the sky and went over with the clear marker, drew the tree and the moon myself. I’ve also drawn the spider web. Raven die by Noor Design and the text die by Papirdesign.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E25, E27, E31, E34, E49, (dress) Y11, Y13, Y38, YR15 BV02, V09, V17, (sky, moon and ground) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, Y11, Y13, Y38, 0, W3, W5, W7, W9

Phoenix

It is Friday and time for another progressive challenge at Art by Mi Ran’s Facebook group. Basically you join the group, follow the guidelines to purchase the image and enter in the challenge, then next month when the new challenge is up you get the image given to you as long as you took part the previous month. Great right?! This month we’re playing with Phoenix. If you’d rather not play along, she’ll be available for purchase next month in Art by Mi Ran’s Etsy shop.

I made my card reasonably simple after I had coloured the image in with copics. I used a few dies from Noor Design and had fun with some black gesso.

Faythe on Fail Friday

Tiddly Inks Fab Friday was.. last Friday. That makes this.. Fail Friday on my part! Fail Friday is when you miss Fab Friday as you have no idea what day it is due to being ill and having jet lag. Doh me! Anyway, here is my Fab Fail card!

I used the super cute Faythe from Tiddly Inks. I coloured the image in with Copics and followed one of Alyce’s skin and hair tutorials at Kit and Clowder to get the hair like that, although I also improvised a little. As I have been having fun making a few more darker themed cards as of late, I followed up somewhat with this by drawing in the cracks, painting the edges of the card (at least I avoided black, eh?!), and using cheese cloth. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, apart from the berry looking ones which are Live and Love Crafts. The dotted paper and sentiment stamp is by Lili of the Valley and sadly I don’t remember where the orange one is from as I’d like more of it! I’ve used Go Kreate dies for the card shape, some Craftwork Cards card candi and a couple of ribbons.

Spooky Gossmere

Another Tuesday Tiddly Inks card means it is time for a new challenge at Tiddly Inks! As Halloween is around the corner we have the fitting theme of Spooky Dooky. I used Gossmere for my card.

So, I’m on holiday at the moment. I’m all the way down under in Australia! By now I should be in Cairns exploring the Great Barrier Reef and taking a trip into the rain forest! I will make sure I post up some photos once I get back home at the start of November!

You know, it was so much fun colouring this one up that I’ve decided to colour her up in A5 when I get back home! It’s all been coloured with copics and I have drawn in the tree and the bats myself. I have no idea what came over me that made me decide to actually draw, hah! What’s even funnier is that after I coloured it up I took a photo, but the shadows from the window fell over it so I took another. When I looked at them both I really liked the one with the shadows, so I ended up adding them to my image!

I’ve used various bits of paper scraps I had laying about as their colours fit perfectly to this card! I then jazzed it up somewhat by painting around the edges (and then some for extra effect) with black gesso. Finally I used some Noor Design dies to make the birds and tress just make it even spookier!

I absolutely love this card, and I hope you do, too!

Wryn’s Leaves

It is time for a new challenge at Tiddly Inks! And as autumn is well on its way here and the leaves are turning all over the place and filling up the lawn, the challenge theme is quite appropriate! Fall colours!

I picked the awesome Wryn’s Leaves, which I coloured in with copics. It was quite fun to colour, although I made the actual drawn in leaves disappear somewhat..

What does an autumn card need? Leaves! Lots of leaves! So I went crazy with my Martha Stewart punchers and Noor Design dies and put leaves everywhere! All the layers are on foam stickers so that the leaves really are poking out everywhere! I used papers from Maja Design, Memory Box and Lili of the Valley and lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The swirly thing-a-ma-bobs are from Kort & Godt.
