Exquisite Princess

Had a play with some gorgeous images from Make It Crafty today and some of the New Memory dies that I got from Ally Pally.

I used Enchanted Unicorn from the Fantasy collection and Exquisite Princess from the Fairytale collection.
I merged the images together so she was sat upon the unicorn in a My Craft Studio programme. I coloured her with Copic pens and kept the unicorn real simple by just adding a few shadows  with some glitter pen highlights on his mane and tail.

Hope you like

Blonde Hair

It was my turn to post on the Make It Crafty store Blog and I chose the in house challenge of blonde hair. I wanted to have a bit of an experiment with different colours for a medium look blonde hair.
This is one of my first attempts and I was quite pleased with the colour combination except the highlighted area is not very distinct. So had another go with same combination.
Def more the look I was aiming for. having the two piccies now what better way to use them than on a bag yep still loving making them and card to match.

on a roll I carried on the theme and changed the colours that I was using slightly for the nest pics

thought I would try little bit darker for this cute little Frenchie Leon

and as things seemed to be going quite well and who am I to stop a creative roll I carried on and completed the last piccie in the Frenchie set. Again I changed the colour of the hair slightly.

I added some of the gorgeous chippies from make it crafty to these, which I coloured with copics and then sprayed with Crafters Companion silver glitter spray.

Make It Crafty Products Used
Butterflies and Leaves
Frenchie Claudine
Frenchie Leon
Frenchie Valerie

If you want to know what colours I used for the hair pop over to the Make It Crafty Store Blog where you will see some amazing creations by my teamies.

I got too play with the adorable Lady Lola and what better place for her to be than on the Make It Crafty background of the red carpet.

Oops back to my project which is why your here really. LoL

Yep I am still on a bag kick really loving doing these! this one is a bit bigger than the others I had so made my image a bit bigger than normal, so I have used both Copics and Prisma Pencils to colour.
I have used flowers from Wild Orchid, feathers and paper that I seem to have had for ages, but cant remember where from.
I hope this has inspired you in some small way and now you are of to see the fantastic creation made by the Green Godess herself Leila
Have fun and enjoy the rest of the hop.

Indian Warrior

Managed to have a littl play and make something just because I can today (well thats my opinion anyway). I'm not really good at making cards for boys and men, which is soo not good when you have three sons and two grandsons, but I just fell in love with this cute little Indian Warrior by Nellie Snellen, and have been waiting for a chance to ink him up.

he's been coloured with Copics, the papers are by Whiff of Joy which I have had for ages and totally forgot about! I am soo going to have to ban myself from bying any more papers or printing any till I have used some of my stash up!!!!!!

Gift Bag 2

Decided to have another go at a gift bag and didnt have quite so many disasters this time lol, bit dissappointed with the wings though had to use a new quickie glue and it really came out thick and fast, so glitter is not as delicate as I would have liked.
Image is from Lili of the Valley coloured with Copics

Flowers are Wild Orchid
Papers Pink Parfait Forever Friends
Ribbon coloured with copic pen

Left the back plain as soo much going on in front.
