just magnolia challenge - sketch and a spoon full of sugar anything goes!

Oh No Another sketch!!!!
Actually I really enjoyed this one!!  maybe I am getting into the swing of sketches!! So as you have gathered by now this weeks challenge over on jusr magnolia is a sketch!  I have used sitting travelling tilda colored her in with my copics mostly BV 0000, 000, 00 and 01. the shadow is dusty concord distress ink and of course the beautiful paper is from the magnolia bon voyage collection!! This is the first time I have used proper doilies and after I had everything glued down the top layer started to peel and I realised that I had used 2 doilies stuck together!! so I had to glue the unstuck doily onto the first and guess what!!! ...... I had 3 doilies stuck together Lol!!! not a mistake I will make twice (I hope!!) I am just loving the Tim holtz tags the stamped tag is by whimsy!!
I am also entering this card into the  a spoon full of sugar challenge  which this week is ANYTHING GOES!!! my favoirite!! Lol the prize is a whimsy stamp token and I love their stamps especially their sentiments!!
Thanks for looking in!!

Tiddly Inks challenge - sketch

Hi, and good afternoon! that's another week nearly over!
my mojo has been a little elusive this week! probably not helped by blooming great leak from bathroom into kitchen!!! Aaaarrrrggghhhh!!! luckily house is still quite new so have called builders to take  a look! but I have a bad feeling!!!......
Anyway couldn't miss out on my Tiddly Inks now could I??? especially as they are doing a design team scout!! ..... hint hint!!! gosh that would be a dream!! I really want to start taking by crafting to the next level !!
So this week is a sketch!!!  anyone who has been following my blog will know that sketches are my phobia!!!! Lol! but I am kinda getting in the swing now .... I think! I have used my ever fav "everyday princess!" coloured her with my copics and highlighted with a few stickles and of course some gems for her crown!!! the magnolia dragonfly dies have also been highlighted with stickles and the words, sweet and sassy!! have been made using doodlebug all mixed up rub-ons!
anyway I think that about it for this time!!!
Thanks for looking in!!!!

This weeks challenge in Kenny K is embossing it can be any type dry or ink embossing and I confess I have done the bare minimun!!! the sentiment "cool" has been stamped and heat embossed!!! I know..I know!!!! not much! but I dont do much embossing and the few embossing folders I have are flowery, and this cool kid said "no way"!!!! to flowers , and as he's a digi that left me with few options!!! so I hope you still like him! I have coloured him with copics and mounted hin onto 2 co-ordinating cloud 9 papers. thanks for looking in

just magnolia challenge

Happy Sunday Peeps!!!
So this week the just magnolia challenge is a sketch!!! I have been living in dread of this day since I started blogging ...... 2weeks ago!!! Lol. I have never tried to follow a sketch before and always thought it seemed too restricting!! hey no one told Picasso to draw properly!!! Lol!! But I actually enjoyed this one when I set my mind to it!!
I have stamped oriental Tilda (first time she's seen ink!!) isn't she lovely!! I have cololured her with copics mostly V and BV. except for her hair where I tried the  "color me copic"  straight hair tecnique again, still don't think I have mastered it!! but I will  keep trying!! the text is a rub on, which I have put onto the ribbon! Tilda's lace and flowers have been highlighted with stickles. and the DP is magnolia.
Have a great day
P.S. I also did a little air brushing on tilda's background!!

colour me copic - straight hair

Hi All!!!
As you've probably noticed I love my copics :-) !! so when I found this blog  I had to have a go at their challenge. there is a terrific tutorial on colouring straight hair, and until I decided to have a go I hadn't realised how few straight haired stamps and digi's I have!! so that's  ANOTHER   thing on my wish list!! phew Santa doesn't have a list long enough for my wishes!! Lol!!!!
So I decided to have a go with my greetings farm digi "Jack" ! as I do struggle to colour his hair!! and although I don't think its great!( I also need to add some more brown copics to that List!!!!) I am quietly pleased with the result!! and can really see the potential with long hair (with a bit more practice!!) He has ended up a bit looking a bit  groooovy!!  with the colour palette I have used but he still has his attitude with the sentiment "whatever" oooh we all know a Jack don't we!!!! Lol
Have a great weekend!!

P.S. If anyone can tell me what that digi is that Amy is using I would be seriously grateful as she is soooo cute!

Yaaaaaaay tiddly inks again!!!!

Hi and good evening all!!!
Wow it's been stormy here in scotland today!! It feels like a huuricane!! but of course the weather men say it's a bit blustery!!!!!! Hah!!
Well it's time for tiddly inks challenge again  and I am fast becoming addicted to these cuties!!! especially this one,  she is called "everyday princess"!! and she is just a joy to colour!
I have coloured her with my trusty copics - R81, 83,85. BV 25, 31. YR23, Y26, and W, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9. mounted her onto basic grey cardstock and added some prima flowers. I have stamped the word magical and mounted it to the side. I think this is a perfect birthday card for any princess young or old!!! in fact it makes me think of one of my all time fav.  films "a little princess" her father told her all girls are princess!!! ... nice thought eh!!

Just magnolia monthly challenge , Sir stampalot challenge and stampin' for the weekend

This week on just magnolia the challenge is cracked glass or anything goes , so I took the easy option i'm afraid!!! Lol I thought this card would also  fit in well with the sir stampalot challenge which is distressing, this is one of the only cards (thus far) that I have made using distressing! and I think by the end I was more distressed than the card!!!  Lol, but I am becoming more and more of a distress fan at the moment so hopefully she won't be the last!!! lastly I am entering her into the stampin' for the weekend which is vintage or shabby chic!
I have stampted this little cutie "tilda on the loose" and coloured her with copics and ..... pro markers I know a bit of a change for me!! the swirl is my old faithful magnolia swirl do hicky and the tag was cut using tim holtz sizzix ticket die!! she is mounted onto magnolia paper with prima flowers and some pearls!!
see you soon
