New Crafts and Me challenge



Hey guys I'm back today to share my latest creation for the new Crafts and Me challenge and this time around we're following a sketch done by the talented Karina. 
the sketch was very fun to do thanks Karina for that :)


I colored the beautiful Hannah Lynn Expression study 5 with my copics, pencils and Tim Holtz Distess pads

I also used some of that GORGEOUS digi paper Serenity and FYI it comes with some beautiful sentiment tags.


I added some of my paper from my stash with the music notes. I thought it complimented the paper very well. 

I hope you could join the challenge and please swing by and check out what the
Crafts and Me team has done with the sketch.

I'll be back this week to share  a few more cards I've done

Sepia is MIC new challenge

 
 
 
 
Hey I'm back and I'm slacking on my postings I know.... sorry!
I might have to get stronger coffee me thinks.
 
Today I wanted to share my take on the new challenge over Make It Colourful. The theme is easy I assure you. The easy challenge is to color with browns and the "hard" is coloring in monochrome like
 SEPIA.
I used Sweet Stephanie digi and colored her with copics. You could find the coloring recipe at the bottom of the post.
This card was planned to be a Valentine's card and I actually had it taped lightly and had flowers and embellishments sketched out and everything. Well I had my sister over to pick an image for her bday card she expects every year which was on January. Well she saw this image and became hardheaded that she wanted this one and wouldn't have it any other.....ugh!!!! SO I had to start it alllllllll over and recreate a bday card lol! I really loved the result I must admit.
 
The Olivia banner comes from "Use your words"  Little Darlings Warm fuzzies sentiments and also the vintage bday sentiments  was used on the bottom base
 
 
 

 

 
 
 
Copic coloring recipe
 
Skin:E70,E71,E40,E41,E50,R00,R20,R0000,0
Hair: E71,E74,E79,R02
her dress and flowers were used with the combinations of the very same colors used from the skin and hair.

I'm working on some more Crafts and Me creations at the moment so I'll be back soon to share that.
Thanks for swinging by and make sure to check out the challenge and hopefully you join us.

All you need is Love

 Hi guys it's time to start my part of the sharing with the latest releases at CHA.
I thought I'll start with an Milkcoffee image name Lisbeth and chicks which she's colored with copics.
  For her I decided to put a Page Lay out.
Using bold colors that would amplify her hair ;D
 
I used some of the 12x12 Summer Sorbet paper and some of the

not my norm but I was undecided what to do with her and scrapbook page is all that came coming to me. The reds and the turquoise's is my favorite combo you guys know lol!
ok get ready for heavy photography :D
 


 

 

 
That's it for me and I'll be back on the 4th for a special posting .
C-you then
