Mitzi Pumpkin Sprite

Hello everyone. Popping in with a quick PL life size card for an upcoming Halloween page I am waiting to fill once Halloween comes this season. I thought this image from Sweet Pea Stamp Artist, Mitzi Sati-Wiuff, called Pumpkin Sprite.

Used a dry embossed spider web for the backing. Colored the image with my Copics and used a sentiment from an old Echo Park set I had. I created it 4x6 so I can use it in my PL page I plan to make for Halloween.

I will also be entering this into the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew-Dry/Wet Embossing
Crafty Cardmakers-World of Fantasy
Fairytale Stampers-Anything Goes
A Creative Romance-Fantasy

Tiddly Ink Card DT Call card

I was super excited when I saw a recent posting for a new Tiddly Ink Design Team post.  I figured you never know unless you try so I decided to it out.
Colored up this lovely stamp from Tiddly Ink, Happy Days.  I had this birthday theme paper in my stash for over a year now and thought it was just perfect for this set. As always, I took out my trusty Copics to color this one up.
 Well wish me luck and good luck to all the other people who enter!

Skin: E11, E01, E00, E000

Valarie Wade

One of artists over at Sweet Pea Stamps that make such sweet faces on her characters is Valarie Wade. I have been longing to color up some of her images.

I used my paper from Fancy Pants-Park Bench. I used one of my Spellbinder dies to create the embellished doily look on the card. I then cut the doily in half and added it to the two corners.

I colored the image with my Copics:

Hair: C9,7,5,3,
Skin: E15,13,11
Dress: Y19,15,11 and B000

Be sure to check out some of the wonderful images that Valarie has in the shop.

Make It Crafty Coloring Image

This crazy has just been so busy with the kids being home and all the fun activities we have been doing so I do apologize for my inconsistent posting.

I am just popping in with a colored image I did for the Make It Crafty Contest. One of the things I love is that is a true coloring challenge so you can just pop a colored image into the contest.

This month the challenge was blond hair for the Easy challenge or creases and folds for the Hard Challenge.

This is one of the first times I have tried to added creases and folds that were not in the clothes to begin with. A bit tricky and still have a bunch of practice to do but pretty happy with the progress.
For the blonde I used:  Y11,Y15,Y19,YR24
Purples: V25,22,20
Green: G9,5,2,00
Skin: E110,000,R20
Hope you like it and hope to get it into a card soon.

Sweet Pea Stamps-Featured Artist week Lisa Victoria

This week our featured artist is the super talented, Lisa Victoria. She has some amazing dragon and fantasy themed digis and stamps that are sure to amaze you.

I decided to use the image,  Fire Dragon
I had this great DCVW paper called Once a Upon a Time that was perfect to pair with the image. I then colored the dragon in Copics and tried to get a more reptile scale feel with it by dotting the scales on in different shades of green.  I added some stickles as well to the dragon and distressed it with my ink pads.
