Digi Choosday Week 49

I really enjoyed colouring this beauty up for this weeks DIGI CHOOSDAY inspiration, which was "Winter Birthday/Colours".  So I kind of went for a Red and Green combo, but somehow ended up with a purple present!

She is from Winnie Fruit Punch and coloured with Copics.

We would love to to see enter our ANYTHING GOES challenge.

2018 Calendar

I don't now where the time goes to at the moment, I forgot all about our new challenge at Aurora Wings and so I have to confess that this weeks make was very last minute.

The theme is anything but a card - so due to lack of time I went for the quickest thing I could think of.

I have created a 2018 calendar for myself and I could't resist colouring up the cute Reindeer Sprite again, to add to the bottom.

As I said it was a very last minute and quick project, so no embellishments etc, just a printed calendar with Reindeer Sprite, but it will be so handy in my craft room.

If you pop over to the challenge blog, my teamies have some beautiful makes this week.

Christmas Sprite Showcase

Who doesn't love an Aurora Wings Sprite?  Well over on the showcase today we have three new ones, just perfect for Christmas or Winter.

First up is Sugar Plum Sprite - I am sure any little girl would love her.  I tried to do a mirror image, so it looks like she is practising in front of a mirror.

This next cutie is Snowflake Sprite - I have used Copic B60's to colour her and added loads of Glitter drops and Spectrum Noir Sparkle, I put her on a black background so she is floating through the night sky.

The last Showcase image is 'Hot Cocoa Sprite', complete with lil marshmallows in his mug.
Again I have coloured with Copics and added to a mug shaped card, in my favourite colour.

I added some gold washi tape to add sone interest to the mug.

Digi Choosday Week 48

Yay, it's Tuesday and that means a new challenge begins over at DIGI CHOOSDAY, as usual the theme is ANYTHING GOES.

This week I tried something I have been wanting to attempt for a while, a northern lights scene with distress inks.

I tried it a couple of times on black card and was really pleased with the results, but the image just didn't look right on black.

So I attempted (Several times) doing it on a white background and here is the final result.

The sweet Reindeer are from Octavia Frosted Winter and coloured with Copics.

Don't forget to head over to the Challenge Blog to grab todays discount code.  We would also love to see you enter our challenge.

Oh Christmas Tree

So for the new challenge at Colour Crazy Challenge, we are sponsored by the wonderful Polka doodles.

Inspired by the monthly lessons over at Kit & Clowder, I decided to create a whole scene around my image Winnie Leaving Mince Pies from Winnie White Christmas.

Here is the image before I began.

I pulled the image into the Silhouette Studio Software and began building a scene around her.

Once I was happy I printed her and set to work with my Copics,  then added some gems to the Christmas tree and here is my final result.

The only item digitally coloured is the star wall paper.

Digi Choosday Week 47

This week at DIGI CHOOSDAY, the team were asked to do a Christmas Project without Red or Green.  Perfect for me as I rarely use the traditional colours.

I visited my Sister recently who had just had an IPhone case delivered and it came in a cute little box, which she was about to through out, so I nabbed it covered it with Christmas Paper  and  set to work finding an image to use.

I settled on one of the sweet Winnie images from Winnie White Chrismas and coloured her in bright Pink/Purple with Copics, to match the paper, then added plenty of Spectrum Noir Sparkle to the white elements to complete my image.

I added her to the box with a hand tied Organza bow and filled the box with Chocolate coins, I may have nibbled a few in the process (Well they wouldn't all fit in!!)

I hope I have inspired you to try some different colours for  Christmas this year.

Northern Lights

I have wanted to try making a Northern Lights scene on black card since I saw the technique demonstrated on the Inkylicious stand at Ally Pally last year.

Finally I have got around to having a play and I am loving the effect.

I coupled it with an SVG cut by Lavinia Stamps, you cannot see from the photo, but I have added clear sparkle pen to their wings, which looks lovely against the black.

I created a paper stencil to do the snowdrifts in white ink and also dotted a little white gel pen for some brightness.
