Hello people,
I was really early out of bed today (like most days hahaahha) and started to colour up this beautifull stamp Thoughts by Jeremiah Ketner at Crafts & Me....

I coloured her with Spectrum Noir markers and enhanced her face with pencils.
 I added loads of dies to my card as that has been my newest addiction. Hahahahaa well not a bad addiction I think. I coloured the flowers and swirl dies with my markers to in the same colours so they would match the image perfectly.
I hope you enjoyed my inspiration for this sunday...

Summer Days....

When I read the name of this stamp I knew I had to colour her up as she is called Summer Day's by Jeremiah Ketner. So here she is on a nice summer/spring card.
 I printed her on Kraft cardstock and coloured her with Spectrum Noir markers and enhanced with Pencils.  I got a bunch of new dies lately so my fingers where itching to use them all on one card hahahaha.

I hope you enjoyed my Inspiration for today. I hope winter feels less cold today with this card.

Hugs Ria

Twenties Bohemian - Emily Luella..available soon.

Good morning all.
Nic here after a long time but I do have a fabulous new image to share.
Bohemian Twenties by Emily Luella, she will be available in STORE soon.
In the meantime here is a card I have made using her.

Here she is, partly coloured.She prints in grey scale so all the shading is ready for you,
I have coloured her with alcohol markers and a little tip is to put down white gel pen where you want extra light in your finished image.
Let the white gel pen dry and then I have gone over it with my lighter shade of green for example and the gel pen retains the lightness underneath.

Here is the finished card, isn`t she absolutely gorgeous.I love vintage images.
I was going to go with soft colours, but the olive green was what I went for in the end.

A  close up.
and a side view.
Thanks so much for looking and do keep checking out the NEW PRODUCTS in store as she will be added asap.
Have a wonderful day.
Hugs Nic.
