Statement flowers with pencils

I’ve finally sat down to colour up the Statement Flowers by ALTENEW using my Prismacolor pencils. I love how they turned out, and I have to admit I don’t know if I prefer the pencil or copic colouring more for these. There’ll be more pencil versions, though, that’s for sure! I used Gina K’s amalgam ink for stamping up the flower and for the sentiment.

After I had coloured it all up and used one of my stitched rectangle dies for the panel I decided to possibly ruin the whole thing. Not a good idea, I know, but with limited time testing doesn’t tend to get priority, hahaha. I’ve bought some Dylusion Ink Sprays the past week and opted to give the black one (yup, that darkest possible option) a go over my coloured panel! Thankfully it turned out alright. The sentiment is from the Dearest Friend stamp set and I’ve also used Altenew enamel dots from the New Day set as a finishing touch.

Crafty Meraki dotted blooms

Today marks the day for my final post for the Crafty Meraki DT. I have finally been able to make a card with one of the stamps I selected before I started on the team and I went all pink for a change! I admit I am looking forward to having some more time to create stuff that is not DT work (aka with a deadline), it’s not been much of that lately with everything else going on. A lot has happened the past couple of months, but hopefully things will settle a bit soon! I might even have a chance at tidying up my desk again!

It’s been a while since I used Altenew, so I had fun colouring up one of their stamps again. This one is called Dotted Blooms and I used the sentiment from that set as well. It has quite a few good sentiments! The enamel dots are Altenew as well, whereas the ink for the sentiment is by Pinkfresh and is called Regal Kiss.

Thanks for having me, Crafty Meraki, and I look forward to seeing what fun products you might release next!

Copics used: RV00, RV10, RV63, RV66, RV69, RV91

Make It Crafty elf

Once again Copic Marker Norge is having an advent calendar and today is my day to show a card. I decided to take the opportunity to thank Zoe of Make It Crafty for her wonderful contribution to the crafting community. Her fab colouring, great shop with fab stamps and of course my favourite chipboard is worth mentioning now that she has decided to close the shop down at the end of this week. I will make sure I get some shopping done at the weekend, for sure, while I still can! Thank you, Zoe, for all the inspiration!

I’ve used this Make It Crafty stamp and chipboard together with some Maja Design paper, some new lace I found on Ebay a couple of months ago and finally got around to using, and ribbon from… I think it’s from the Hobby House, actually, and that I’ve had it forever.

Here is a close-up of the colouring

Thank you fairy

Today I am showing you a thank you card I made with one of my favourite Stamping Bella stamps. I coloured her up in November and even made a colouring video out of it (which you can find here), but I only just had the time to make the card. Things do take time sometimes… The text stamp is by Altenew.
