Memories of Summer!


Hi Lovely Bloggers..

OK.... I'm trying to hang on to a bit of summer with this card for Little Miss Muffet Stamps DT...  (ahem).... actually my printer died and this was the only image I had printed out a little while back that I was able to colour!

This is one of the lovely Polka Dot Pals - she's Trixie...  and I loved colouring her!  I thought she should be sitting on the grass on a sunny day..  so here she is..

Materials Used:
Image - LMMS PDP-Trixie
Die: Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangle
Paper - Sorry it was a scrap in my bits box
Colouring - Copics
Skin E000/00/21/11/04 R20
Hair E21/34/23
Greens YG21/23/63
Pinks R81/83/85
Eye Shading T1/3
Blue shading: B0000/000, Promarker Pastel Blue
Grass - Prismacolour Pencils
Chalked Clouds

Hope you like this summery image which doesn't match at all the view of the weather today out of my window....  true Autumn with a mist hanging around!  Ah well... we can dream, can't we?? LOL!

I spend a fab day yesterday with the lovely Faye - she came to give another blogger (Sue) and me a Copic workshop.  It was so exciting to meet up and have fellow crafters in the house.....  and I can't believe how fast the time went!  Hopefully I did learn too..  and will try to put what I learned into practice very soon!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting...

  11. Christine, This is a gorgeous card. I love your clever card design with that super pretty paper; however, the real star of the show here is that adorable little sweetie in her toady/froggy outfit. You have coloured her beautifully and added just the right amount of sparkle - all totally glorious.


If you like what you see and have a moment, please say hello.. it means a lot to me..
