Colouring video: Faythe’s Cherry Flowers

 

It is time for me to share my first proper tutorial. As usual I like to make it difficult for myself, so it’s a video tutorial. When I was colouring up Faythe’s Cherry Flowers (by Tiddly Inks) the other day I decided to film while doing so. This has now been made into a video where you can see how I’ve coloured up the image while I explain what I’m doing.

LLLC: Thank you

Today I have used this super cute Thinking of You Marci to make a Thank You card. I decided to go with bright cheerful colours, in a fun colour combination.

The papers are primarily by Maja Design and Bazzill, the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. All the die cuts are from La-La Land Crafts. I just love how easy they are to cut out!

Faythe’s Cherry Flowers

Recently Tiddly Inks was out with a new image. It’s called Faythe’s Cherry Flowers. Of course I had to get it and use it as I think it is really sweet. I quite like the character Faythe and her awesome hair.

If you’d like to see how I’ve coloured up this image, you can see it here. Yes, I’ve made a video of me colouring her up! I hope you enjoy it! I’ll make a seperate post about it tomorrow.

I’ve used various papers from Maja Design along with some La-La Land Crafts dies and a Make It Crafty chipboard which I coloured with both matching colours and the white dots of the dress.

Konfirmasjonskort

I have made a confirmation card for a boy. I opted out of using a coloured image this time around and instead I went with one of the prints from Maja Design. All the background papers are also Maja Design. I used some blue and white twine, a guitar charm from Kort og Godt and some chipboard stars by Papirdesign that matched the colours rather well. The inside was decorated with a pocket for money or a gift certificate on one side and a space for writing on the other side.

LLLC: Mother’s Day

Friday is now my new designated La-La Land Crafts day. The theme of the week is Mother’s Day. Here we had our Mother’s Day back in February.

I’ve once again coloured up one of their stamps with the no-lines technique. For some reason I seem to prefer colouring their stamps that way. Who knew I’d ever warm up to that feeling! It’s a cool challenge, though, and I’m getting more and more confident with it. I added a little bit of texture to her skirt so it has a bit of a denim feel to it. You can find a link to the stamp and the list of colours below.

I’ve used some Maja Design paper to go with the background stamp from LLLC which I did in a matching purple ink. Isn’t it pretty?! I absolutely love it! The various dies are listed at the bottom of the post. The butterflies are just so pretty and I love that heart die! As I didn’t really have a fitting sentiment I could emboss onto the dark blue background, I simply just wrote it myself! That works, too, right?! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.
