Meet Annie!

My new little girl. I am really enjoying drawing at the moment, they are not perfect but unfortunately I haven't got time to make them that, nor do I have any fancy writing stuff, just a humble pencil - not excuses, merely facts. So here is my latest in my line of "Sitting girls/Boys"

I cut the frame, scalloped circle behind Annie and pop-up flowers on my Silhouette from K&Co Cut 'n Paste paper. Other flowers used were two yellow Prima flowers.

Once again I used my McGill pine branch punch.

and these were my Copic colours:

Thanks for looking and have a lovely day.


Copic Colour Challenge

My turn to set the colours for the Copic Challenge this week. I chose the following:

BG13 - Mint Green
YO8 - Acid Yellow
V06 - Lavender

I really like these colours together, a nice bright ensemble of frivolity :-)
As well as using the colours for my image I also coloured an old paper doily in V06 Lavender and a scalloped circle in BG13 Mint Green. The main card right at the back is also coloured with BG13, well edges only as that was all you would see.

Pine branches with my McGill punch, I seem to be using that a lot these days.

These were all the colours used:
Pop over the Copic Challenge blog and look at the outstanding work produced by the other DT members! There's a link in the sidebar.

New Download Collection!

The Holly and Madison collection has expanded! The girls have gone on a world tour and had some fun :-) This great collection is now available ONLY at Charmed Cards & Crafts. Here is a card made with one of the fabulous images, one of my favourites in fact: Madison on safari; this is my Monday Mojo card on Dottie's World today.
The frame and palm trees were cut on my silhouette. Ribbon is Basic Grey Urban Couture, everything else K&Co.

The image, frame and palm trees were coloured in with copic markers, I also used Distress inks on the blue and the earth. These were (some of) the Copic colours used:

Plus loads more pinks and blues I forgot to add, oops. The blues used were: B00, B01

Why not pop over and get this great collection? You know you want to ;-) Here it is

Sunday Challenge - Fabric

Good morning everyone! Well not good morning as it's 20:20 on a Saturday evening as I write this, I always schedule the Dottie's World's Sunday challenge DT post so that I don't sit there bleary eyes and write on a Sunday morn. So for all intents and purposes GOOD MORNING!!! Hope you slept well, I sure did!! LOL

On to the challenge! This week the lovely Nicola set the challenge; Nicola simply wanted to see some sort of fabric on our projects, it could be anything, even a bit of ribbon. I used some gorgeous totally lush fabric brads from the K&Co Ancestry collection for my compulsory element and some Prima lace ribbon for good measure.
Now this image is from the new collection "Holly & Madison around the World" which is COMING SOON! It features Holly in England but is not yet available. Just thought I'd tease you a little ;-) Holly's adorable sidekick here is Scruff from the Animal collection. Actually, come back tomorrow and I'll tease you a little more with my Monday Mojo card and yet another new image.
The patterned paper is K&Co Lotus Tea Rose and I cut out three of the flowers from the paper for the top.
The plain paper is Basic Grey
Fabric Brads are K&Co Ancestry
Lace Ribbon is Prima
Everything I used is of course available in my shop: Charmed Cards & Crafts.
The images are coloured in with Copics, and these are the colours I used:

Why not pop over to Dottie's World's and join the challenge? The DT will all pop over and check out your blog :-)
Thanks for coming to visit xx
