Just for fun with Saturated Canary Amber

Hi guys! Well this morning I woke up cheery and ready to color. The funny thing was that I had something else ready and then I had remembered I wanted to play in the Tombow coloring contest. 

I have only a few handful of watercoloring markers so I decided to play with my favorite markers....Actually it's my ULTIMATE favorite color. I love it beyond words, number 879. This chocolate brown marker has a pink undertone! So pretty.

 So I decided to do a sepia coloring take using Amber from Saturated Canary Rubber stamp.
I didn't know they had a design team call :( AWEEE time I'll be looking out for sure. I love Tombow product.

I also wanted to participate in a challenge. How long has that been right lol!
Yes it's with Taylor's Expressions.
 I've been eyeing them and they have such cute stuff. I need to go shopping there very soon.

TOMBOW Color combo
I used 942 for skin and 723 through out like on her cheeks, lips and top of her dress. Hair,eyes and skirt was with 879 and 942
Now 815 was diluted with water and used it on butterflies and a tad on her lips. Oh yes Tombow pink pencil is from the pale tone II. I used it to line up her lips.

Ok thanks for peeking in and I'll cya guys again if I spontaneously decide to color before my next scheduled posting :)

Have a great week

Amber can be found over the LDRS Creative store

I Can't Reach Christmas Cheer For All

Told ya I'll be back! Ok so today it's a Christmas cheer coloring. I did it I did a CAS card. Is it a CAS card? I tried so hard so it better be lol!
Do you know how hard it is not to keep adding embellishments??? Dude it's hard!!! LOL!
So easy peasy lemon squeezy coloring was a center focus. 

I used Copics but OF COURSE. My copic combo is down below.

This is, I can't Reach  by CandiBean Rubber Stamp.

I had a little extra fun color placing the fir in the tree. I've been doing this technique for years now and I was working on a tutorial actually due to popular request. Well what had happened was..... it's sitting in my draft folder lol! I mean this had to be like 5 years ago lol!

Maybe if I could squeeze in extra coloring I could finish it before December.  I have so much coloring at the moment but than you have those images that you really want to color for extra fun and if I don't I'll just burst!

Simple embellishments. 

My 10 yo daughter is like, mom  what's zup with the boring card?

I chased her all over the house cuz she ran right after she said that.

They're not use to my " CAS cards" :) 

Okie doke that's all my yapping
I hope I gave you some inspiration to give the stamp a try. 
Any questions feel free to email me or leave me a comment.

I will be back early December for a fun post ,....

Wings With Love

Happy Thursday friends!!! I'm very well in the creating mode right now. The holidays have creeped up on us and with TWO bday children this month life is busy around here. 

Nevertheless Just gotta keep swimming as Dori might say.
Here is the states some crazy peeps do Black Friday.... it a day that people bail out on family Thanksgiving and go shopping. Well I have done my share of black Friday shopping AFTER Thanksgiving dinner I might add. Well I'm not sure what I'm shopping for but I'll be out there at wee hours shopping for nonsense lol! Sometimes my hubby and I look at each other and say WHAT THE F#@%! are we doing??? I say i don't know I'm following you lol! Just to go with the hype I guess LOL!! Freaking Losers we are, I say lol!! As long as we get coffee and don't get cursed and shoved we enjoy each others company.

Ok so it's been quiet here for one I mentioned it before I'M COLORING FOR CHA! YES CHA IS AROUND THE CORNER! So yes i'm trying to keep up with a busy family which we pretty much find any excuse to hang out with our close friends and family. Having each others company is just a blessing and life couldn't be any sweeter. I appreciate my friends and family that surround me now so much. My brother is expecting did I tell ya!!!??? YES!! he is and expecting a baby girl. I believe she should be here the fist month of 2016 so anxious Aunty over here. Ok so I'm getting off track and lets keep it moving lol!

Today I have a take on Copic markers. Copic markers for those that don't know are Artist professional markers. They are my favorite marker mediums that I use in a regular basis. To use them is very easy and it takes lots of practice to keep improving your skills. I've been using them for a long long long time now and I always finding inspiration all over the internet that continues the learning process. So if you're interested in jumping on the relaxing coloring, go for it.
There's tons of other mediums. I recently started eye balling, PEN COLORING! Yes with regular ink pens. The art looks so very good.

All right that's enough rant let me get you going :P

This is Wings from DollHouse Rubber stamps a Claudia Tremblay art. Her rich vivid art always inspires me the way I color my Dollhouse images.  I did tweaked her eyes by coloring in some detail in the pupils and a pretty eye color. Lots of undertones and shading on her. I will add copic recipe below.


The LDRS Fluttered Tulip Bodice Die is inserted and layered behind her and adorned with rich color roses. From reds, peach and white.

My sentiment is stamped and colored with  RED COPIC to enhance the letters.

Ok so I'll be back tomorrow for another LDRS creative posting. I'll c-you here mister lol!

Te Quiero Mucho

Well I'll be dam this post didn't go live!!! I had it scheduled and I guess it decided not to. I was coming over here to schedule for two future posts and just saw that my last post never did go up. Well at least it did over the LDRS Creative Inspiration blog. I've been busy behind the scenes you know holidays and actually prepping for CHA!

 Yup CHA is around the corner and the LDRS Creative DT is working hard behind the scenes. I just can't wait to share before exploding lol! Sorry peeps but I'm under oath :P
Well let me leave you with my a little creation I did using CandiBean Swinging by to say Hi Rubber stamp. I watercolored her with Distress Inks. I'm not sure if people are interested in knowing my watercoloring recipe so I never tally it but if I hear any request for it I could start keeping track.

This was a little different for me because I'm a heavy colorist but I'm trying to light color sometime too. It was so hard not adding more dept and I had to really pull away lol!
Anywhoo here is a little watercoloring fun

Adding the Spanish sentiments were the cherry on top and they go so well with the image itself.
The black stamp heart says, "siempre en mi corazon" which means Always in my heart. The top sentiment says, "Te quiero Mucho" which means I love you a lot. The whole set is so much fun to play with and guess what  IT'S ON SALE!!!!!! Go before they're all gone.

Thanks for swinging by my corner a little late for my posting but I'll be back very soon for a back to back posting. Have a great weekend friends!

I just recently started my Instagram account I actually share more of my coloring there 

cya there!

What's Up Buttercup

Happy Saturday friends it's my turn to share some LDRS Creative Inspiration and with Fall here it's only logical that I use Autumn as my inspiration for today's card.

 CandiBean -What's up Buttercup is her name and well
you could see how versatile this stamp can be. You could do a fun Summer theme with it, Spring and certainly Fall. I mean if you wanna  push it you could add snow all over them for winter and there ya go :P

My image was watercolored with various mediums. From TimHoltz Distress pads, Reinkers, Tombow watercolor markers and pencils to touch up little areas.

My sentiment fit perfectly well with the LDRS Darling Square Die set. I used my Vintage Affections sentiment and then die cut it using the decorative circle you see below. This Die set is always my go to lately. I used the decorative square for my base for What's Up Buttercup too.

Darling Square Die Set

I'm so stuck on Fall and to get me out is gonna be haaaaard lol!

I used some Graphic 45 designer paper, very pretty paper I might add. 

The Cocoa ribbon, my friend Tammy and design team sistah from LDRS sent me for a card swap is insanely rich. I LOVE IT! Tammy thank you so very much love. I love my goodies and mainly a beautiful letter she sent with. I have it put away for safe keeping.

Ok that's it for today and I'll be back very soon. Been doing A LOT of coloring  and  I've shared on my FB page so make sure you follow me there too for more behind the scene pictures and work in progress!

Enjoy the weekend peeps

I'm back again today to share some MORE New Lisbeth Rubber stamps Inspiration.

It's a weekend of fun remember. 
Don't forget to join in the HOP for the chance to win sweet Prizes.
If you scroll down you could catch my hop creation I shared yesterday with all the Prize details.

Today we have Rhea from Passionate Paper Creation and Friends hosting a coloring contest and she will also be having a limited time Freebie so make sure to stop by their Facebook page.

Today I'm sharing Lisbeth Winter Cuppa and she is colored with copics and pencils on kraft paper. Coloring this big polar bear was very relaxing. Trying to concentrate on his fur was very therapeutic for me.

I was over excited to use my FAVORITE LDRS sentiments from the Coffee collection and that tiny cuppa is part of the set too! Tucking in those Dewdrop border die around the image for extra depth. You might not be able to see it but those Twigs around the flowers are so sparkly, I'm so addicted to them.

I hope you enjoyed the inspiration I have for you today. I promise I'll be back soon ...I promise!
Have a great weekend friends
