Through The Craftroom Door TTCRD Challenge April 15-21

Time for a new challenge at TTCRD.  The theme is anything goes.  I chose to use this fabulous new image by Make It Crafty, Geeky Love New Parents.  I also used Inside Window Digi Stamp.  I remember those early days of parenting and how exhausting they were.  My son and his wife are expecting their first child, my first grandson, in June.  I am getting so excited!  I will be posting lots of pictures if they allow me to.  So on to my card.  I tried to color the walls  to look like adobe.

Make It Crafty DT Inspiration

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing a sweet card I made with this wonderful digital stamp called Lizzie With Gift.  This is the dollar digi for the month of April.  If you would like to get her for one dollar, just join the private facebook MiC fan page.  Ask Zoe for the special code for the dollar digi of the month.  Here is my card.

I used the no line coloring technique and colored her with copics.  This is one of the images I colored at the Texas Coloring Retreat.  I had such a great time and really enjoyed meeting everyone!  I had some coloring guidance from Zoe and Barbara and I must say, I am quite pleased with the results!  If you are already a MiC fan be sure and get this cutie for one dollar using your special code at checkout.

Enjoy the day!

Make It Crafty DT Inspiration Coloring Wood

Hello friends!  Tonight I would like to share a Make It Crafty scene made with the Country Cottage digital images.  This month's Colouring Challenge #7, Spring Is In The Air, has two levels of difficulty.  The easy challenge is to color Spring flowers and trees.  The hard challenge is to color wood, plants and trees and make them look realistic.  Here is my card.


I combined several images to create my scene.  Cottage Elements, Pot Plants, Wooden Wall, and Wooden Window.  I must apologize again for not writing down the colors.  I used so many different colors and so many layers until I came up with the look I was trying to achieve.  I wanted a weathered mossy look to the cottage.  Does it look that way to you?  I hope so.  I love these challenges, because they really encourage you to keep practicing and trying new things.  I am so excited because I am going to Texas this weekend for a Colouring Retreat and I am going to meet some extremely talented colouring artists.  I have never been to Texas and I am going to meet Zoe from Australia and Make It Crafty, Barbara from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, and Christy Croll from Tiddly Inks along with 20 or so colouring enthusiasts.  It is going to be FUN!!!  I probably won't post again until I return.  Have a great night!

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

DT Inspiration Make It Crafty Cottage Images

Hi friends!  I would like to share a couple of cards with you tonight featuring some of the new Country Cottage digital stamps by Make It Crafty.  I love this release.  There are so many possibilities for card design.  You can use a single image as the focal point or blend several images to create a fun, relaxing scene.  Here is one made with the watering can from the Potted Plant Collection.


Just a sweet simple card made with one image.  For my next card I again used the Potted Plant Collection with a different pot of flowers and combined it with the bird bath from the Cottage Elements Collection.  I also used the Birds and Butterflies digi elements to complete my little scene.


For the grassy border I used a stamp for the light green leafy part along with some hand drawn squiggles.  The darker green grass was hand drawn.  Everything was colored with copics except for the white clouds and the stamped leafy border.   I used a Stampin' Up white chalk marker for the clouds.   I will have more cards to share using the Country Cottage images very soon.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

Make It Crafty New Digi's

Hi friends!  I would like to share a card with you tonight using a brand new digital stamp called Friendly Flower Sprites by Make It Crafty.  I also used a new pre-made scene called Country View.  I think it made the perfect scene.


I used copics to color the images.  The background die cut was cut from a Die-namics Die called Fishnet Cover-up.  The die cut clouds were cut from a My Creative Time die called Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies.  The finished card size is 6"x6".

Copics used:

Grass:  YG11  YG13  YG17  YG23  YG67  G24  G99

Sprites body:  YG11  YG23 Y02

Purple flower:  BV00  V15  V17  V22  V09  V12  BV17

Pink flower:  RV02  RV04  RV21

The sky was colored with B00 and BV00 for a little shadow under the clouds.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
Janice
