I'm entering this in 3 challenges
Stampin' for the weekend - Pink & grey
Whimsey Stamps - A touch of sparkle
Allsorts - Sketch and torn edges
Base card is pink followed by grey backing paper from papermania exquisite stack. Then the panels are pink (same as base) and grey (same as bg paper) which I've also torn and distressed with a grey metallic ink. Final layer of the panel is pink....starburst stains lol!
I also coloured the sticky pearls grey. Image is sugar nellie postbox coloured with promarkers and copics. The pink dots on the image are coloured with sakura stardust in pink so they're sparkly as is the letter she's holding.

Whiff of Joy - Sketch by Rachel
Stamp Something - Birthdays
Image was distressed with distress inks in antique linen and vintage photo and coloured with copics. Papers are Papermania exquisite stack and K&Co. Stamped sentiment and swirl and added large mulberry flower which I've swiped with brilliance coffee bean ink. Added a ribbon blossom, I'm still not very good at them but getting a bit better lol!
Their opening challenge is sugar and spice, mmmm nice!
I edged the Anya image with adirondack pink and coloured with copics and promarkers. The background paper is K&Co and the sentiment is a freebie stamp from do crafts creativity mag a couple of months back. Matting is... go on you must know by now...starburst stains lol! Ribbon is from stash, I liked its spicy colour and flowers are also from stash.
Good luck girls, your blog is sure to go down a storm!
Oooh my entry is my lucky number 9!
The image I recently got in an image swap, I'm kinda liking it so it will be one for the collection. Its coloured with copics and highlighted with sakura souffle. I've also added distress ink in antique linen as trhe white card really glared and didnt look right! The background papers are by K&Co and Papermania and the circle and matting are starburst stains (I know I know I cant help it lol!) Oh and the base card is Moonshadow ink :-D
Red flowers are part of a Victoria Case design and I added orange mulberry flowers on top.

Some of your finer lines may also come off, dont worry thats good as it lets the next colours spreadout more! When you've taken off the base colour from inside the wings paint it with the blending solution and using a paintbrush drop in some alcohol inks. The blending solution makes them spread out forming nice pwitty patterns!
This one was made by painting blending solution, dropping alcohol ink then a drop of blending solution and quickly heat setting then repeating with the ink which spreads then blending solution which makes the circles then heating. Finished it with a layer of dimensional glaze and some beadazzles :)

Also at The Pink Elephant this week their challenge is to use Turquoise, Brown & neutral.
Also entering for the Allsorts challenge which is vintage.
Background paper is a vintage green which I distressed with scissors and distress ink (vintage photo) and the vertical panel is made with SS in turquoise, brown and a touch of green. I just blew it around with the heat gun in puddles and added more until I got a nice pattern then chucked it through the cuttlebug :) The horizontal panel is SS in opal sea oats with some sprays of moonshadow ink in pirate plunder gold. The image is stamped with moonglow midnight sapphire on SS in turquoise and brown and the edges distressed with distress ink in faded jeans is it called? Not sure but its the same colour as Molly's eyes! Text is stamped on moonshadow ink, flowers have been distressed and the leaves already were!
I'm happy, I got inky messy fingers and I managed to get it ourt in the post all in the same day whoop go me!
Not sure what the stamp is called but it was a simple expressions plate.

This is an old queen bee that spent the afternoon walking round the garden. She was so big she was flattening the grass! Next doors cat took too much of an interest in her, bit of a no win situation really. Either the cat would kill her or she'd sting the cat and die anyway but actually she's left the hive to die off anyway so I moved her out of harms way to go in peace :)

I've created this for the papercraft planet Copic Buzz group who's challenge this week is shading of clothes and also used the sketch from Stampin' for the weekend
Background paper is K&Co and the purple circle is DCWV. Amya is coloured with copics and I've added purple sticky gems to the bow in her hair & buttons on shorts. Also gave her a haircut which is a tip I picked up on Mel Stampz blog. Flowers are from a victoria case design coloured with copics and I added mulberry paper plowers to the centres and touched them with stickles glitter glue.
Here's a close up of colouring and flowers. Thanks for looking!
This card is for the Victoria Case challenge which is to use their sketch (below) and for Color create which is to use pink, orange and green.
Here's my entry ths week, I love love love this little lion!
The image is Victoria Case baby lion (cute isnt he!) and I coloured with copic markers. I added clear gloss to the water and touches of stickles glitter to make it sparkly and shiny. The green background is starburst stains bells of ireland green overstamped with a stampscapes frond stamp. The palm trees are made with bits of brown card shaded with a white pen and the palm leaves are starburst stains in cathedral pines green. The coconuts are cut from brown card then I glued cotton wool on and dyed them with starburst stains (one of the browns) then when dried I fluffed them up so they look like a shaggy coconut lol! Wording is from a dymo :)
Must tell you, I showed this one in playgroup and someone asked if it was colouring by numbers....Oh how I laughed :-/
The twinkling water :)
I'm a stamper through and through but I do enjoy pulling out the peel offs from time to time and showing there's more life in them than plonking them onto a card :)

I had rubbed adirondack (I always forget the colour but its pink!) ink around the image then brilliance for a pinky aged look and added doodles. I then used the card I had cut my circle out of as a mask and sprayed it with moonglow glitz spritz in pink, it wont stick to the stamped image coz thats shiny remember!
Added the flowers which I had dragged out of the back of my cupboard earlier on today having been inspired to give them a new lease of life by Tab. Already had the papermania ones which I coloured with copics but my mulberry flowers haven't seen daylight for a loooooong time! I was looking at them and thinking "What does Tab say? Glimmer mist and glamour dust..."
Hmmm OK I not got them but I did have moonglow glitz spritz and pigment powders so used them and made some leaf things :D
This is the inside which is the starburst stains overstamped with the flower ready to be filled with goodies :)
