JIC DT: Pretty Winter Wonderland

Hello My Crafty Peeps!

Just wanted to stop by and show my little card. Thought it came out kind of cute. :P

Kathryne designer for StampArt at http://www.whimsystamps.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_38 sponsors us at this week. The theme for us was Children.
Her images are so so so cute. Last year I struggled at making cards at the last minute soooo now I'm going to try my best at creating some wintery/Christmasy cards each month... or at least once a month right? LOL So Here's my first Christmas card of the year. Ha!

Here is the very cute image named: Alannah (if you wish to purchase her just click on the name.) I reversed the image and I also used the little bonus sentiment and bird the lovely artist Kathryne, sent included with the stamp. 
 I've been practicing on coloring blonde... (well practicing a little) I'm usually scared to color blonde
so I try to color with pencils when I do but this time I used my Copic markers.
Here's a little close-up (sorry for the lighting it was a night photo)

Make sure to join in on the challenge.
Reminder the theme is: Children

Thank you for stopping by,

Clean & Simple Anya Celebrates

Hi Everyone!

Just stopping briefly to show a little card I've been working on for the last couple of days between other projects....

I used a rubber stamp from The Greeting Farm: Anya Celebrates

I colored her with Spectrum Noir Markers (hair and skin)
then Copic markers were used for the present. 

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a great day.

With a Heart of Gold

Hi everyone,

Today showcasing a little fun DT work at Just Inspirational Challenges. This week's challenge is sponsored by Mitzi, the creator of Stamps By Aurora Wings and the theme is make it "Girly". Check out more of her stamps at AuroraWings etsy shop.

The image I'm using today is called: Steampunk Girl w/doll (just click the link)

I altered a journal with scrapbooking paper (Tim Holtz I believe)
then ripped up some scraps of K&Company distressed the edges and 
hand wrote a fraction of a Steampunk poem I found called: 
Ticking Lullaby by DJ White Spirit. 
I colored my image with Copic markers. This image took me a while to color but
it was fun doing it. Loved each stage as it sort of came alive.
Here's a closer look. Probably would of had better pictures in the morning.
It's a little hard to tell but there is Gold Copic Atyou pens on the goggles
and on the lace on her hat.
The pearls in her hat were done with VivaDecor Pearl pen.
The Jolee's Boutique Steampunk stickers 
I got at a really good deal at TheStampRoom,
they were on clearance.

Thank you so much for stopping by
Don't forget to link your project at
I hope you liked my project took me all weekend and a day
especially having to stop so many times.

Grunge it up and use wings. I have butterflies... hope those count and I distressed the background papers and writing...
