Emily -English rose melancholy moppet

This is Emily brand new only from the very talented artist Heather Valentin from Lacy sunshine stamps. I have kept this card very simpe as i didnt want to overcrowd this stunning image. .
I have colored her with copics which i am just getting used to as i normally use graphits but a lot of them i have now used them all up and the copics you can refill.
The die frame set is a spellbinders set but ive put them all into a binder and forgot to write on what sets they were..
Backing paper if out of a kanban set and also a lili of the valley set.

team b color your world challenge,



Its all about love.For this challenge heather drew me this gorgeous image as i lost the love of my life or one of them my little dog millie.. She was my little crafting buddie and spent many hour curled up in the craft room while i was making cards..
I have used Graph'it markers and copics to color the image and i have made the image into a picture so that she can always be with me in the craftroom.I finished the picture off by putting flowers on two of the corners of the frame as millie loved flowers she would always go out into the yard and smell the flowers in the pots.

This is Izzybella boo's christmas button stocking which can be found in the shoppe here at lacy sunshine stamps.  The challenge can be found here  which i hope you will join us in and is anything goes as long as you dont use a sherri baldy image apart from that you can use anything you like.
This is the first time i have ever done a mixed media piece. I have used a canvas which i first primed with gesso. i then used four colored of gelatos, it was the orange to pale yellow pack of 4. I then ised distress ink to stamp a sentiment randomly onto the the canvas. Next i used texture paste and a holly stencil and scraped the paste through the stencil and let it dry. i dabbed the paste with the green distress ink to add color to the holly. i added gems to make the holly berrys. I added lace down the side and gauze to the bottom, added a die cut behind the cutout of my image, then added buttons around the canvas to keep in with the theme.

Cammille- victorian christmas melancholy moppet . ct posting for lacy sunshine




Hi caroline here with you today i have made these bauble's using camille  who is from the victorian melonchory moppet collection TM who can be found in the shoppe. i thought i would show you that you can use your images to make different things not just cards with them so here is a short tut.. firstly ive colored my image
forgive me for not having normal recipe card ive just got windows 10 on computer and everything is different and havent worked out some of the things yet so here is the colors.
graphit markers
skin 4105, 4101 , 4145 4150
hair 1210, 1230, 1270
clothing 8250, 8260, 8270, 5220, 5210 5245
and gold wink of stella
 these are the globes and the snow from flower soft, but i also added fine glitter and the other globe i added diamona sparkles from hunkeydorey as i didnt have enough flowersoft for both.

 these are the two die's i used


 firstly i added glamour dust to my tree to add some sparkle then used silicone glue to secure it to one half of the globe. i then placed camille in front of the tree. I that is all you want in your globe you can now add your fake snow to the globe. dont worry about where you stuck the tree and camille down with the silicone as the snow will hide this. when you fasten the two halves of the globe together use some clear glue just so you know thet it isnt going to come apart.
 

The globe with the Deer in i did the same as the first one but stuck the deer in the other half of the globe then fastened up the same way.
Then that leaves you to decorate them how you like . The only thing to remember if you want to put them onto a tree you dont want them to heavy.
Thats me for this time bye for now, hope to see you soon

my last dt posting for graph'it markers


this time at graph'it coloring challenge we are sponsored by polkadoodles
I have used odella with heart which i think is such a cutie. The aim for the dt is to use mix it fluid to produce 
a background  , So after a few attempts i managed to get it right by putting mix it fluid in a  water brush and picking ink up off a mix it pallet , i then put small dabs where i wanted them and went straight over them with a piece of spritzed jute . when i was happy with the whole thing i then lightly spritzed the whole background.. I did all this before i colored my digi in.
 due to ill health ive had to step down from the team. ive had a great time with  the team and will really miss you all
