Happy Momster’s Day

Today I am guest designing for Sasayaki Glitter. I picked this totally super-awesome Monster Family stamp for my project.

The background has been made with Distress Inks, the purple is a regular one and the green is an Oxide. I simply couldn’t resist making my own sentiment because of the look on what I take to be the mother monster’s face. I love it!

Copics used: (green) YG63, YG67, G21, G40, (yellow) Y13, Y19, (orange) Y000, YR00, YR02, YR04, (purple) V91, V93, V95, V99, (red) R00, R20, R22

Goth Avery

I was requested to make another card for the Paper Nest Dolls to match the one I made at the start of the year. (You can find it here.) This time I went for soft pastels and pink, but kept the card design similar and the hair colour the same. Once again I made the sentiment myself and printed it straight onto the card base. The paper is by Paper Cellar.

Yup, I know the photo is a bit wonky, but hey!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E15, (hair and other grey) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (dress) V91, V93, V95, R81, R83, R85, R39, (doll skin and ground) W3, W5, W7

Foxy Marci

It is Monday again and that means it is time for another inspirational post for LLLC. The theme this time around is nature.

The image is coloured in with Copics. I used my favourite red hair combination for the fox face and her coat. I think that worked out rather well. Maybe it’s time I do start using it on something other than hair, haha. I’ve used various Bazzill and Maja Design papers for the card, printed a sentiment to go with the die cut word and coloured up two candi in matching blues to the dress.

All details and links on the La-La Land products will be found at the bottom of the post, after the photos.

The butterfly stands out from the card beautifully and I’ve decorated it with a string of pearls for the body.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

Goth Ellie – be yourself

Clean and simple cards are so much fun! I think I am making like two CAS for every layered one atm. Today I am showing one I made for the Paper Nest Dolls, using the stamp Goth Ellie.

I used some candi in the top right corner, and kept them white for a change. I printed a sentiment right onto the card base and then used paper from Paper Cellar. Lastly I cut out the stamp by hand, put her upper body on foam tape to make her stand off the card a little, while keeping her feet firmly on the ground at the bottom where I drew on some shadow.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

Copics used: (hair) BV23, BV25, BV29, (purples) V01, V06, V09, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (turquoise) G40, BG49, BG53, BG57, (greys) W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, W9

Dandelion Dream – CCK guest designer

I was so very lucky and was chosen as the winner of the guest designer spot after the May challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik’s challenge blog! So here is my card for the July Challenge of Sparkles and Shine! I am not very good at using glitter and such, so it was quite the challenge! Thank you for having me!

Guest Designer

The image I chose is Dandelion Dream, by Ching-Chou Kuik, obviously. I absolutely love these images and it was hard to choose something that I thought might be good with the theme. Everything is coloured with copics. I’ve added lots of pink and yellow dots with liquid pearls for extra shine (which is hard to capture in a photo) and used silver rhinestones as the centre of the dandelions.

All the flowers are by Wild Orchid Craft, apart from the purple berry looking thing which is by Live and Love Crafts. I’ve used a ton of glitter glue and papers from First Edition Papers, Lili of the Valley and Papirdesign. The sentiment is by Pink Pettycoat and the butterflies from a Martha Stewart puncher. Lastly, the shiny pink circles are candi from Craftwork Cards.

I am terrible at trying to take photos of something shiny or sparkly, therefore I have taken quite a few, with different light sources, and instead of just picking one I’ve decided to share four of the photos. I think it’s a good example to show how different light sources can make the photo look different as well.

This first one shows the colours best, but a bit heavy in contrast. Daylight and flash.

The second photo shows the sparkles a bit better, but the colours are also duller. I used the camera on my phone for this.

card353_4

This photo is truer to the colour of the card, but it doesn’t show the sparkles and shine as good as the other photos. Lightbulbs and flash.

card353_2

And lastly, here is a darker photo to show off the sparkles even better! Daylight, no flash.
