Crafty Little Fairies Challenge DT Card/Creation

Good morning lovely peeps of the world, again I am running late :0( Laptop has being a pain in the butt this morning gggrrrr

Anyway we have a new challenge over at Crafty Little Fairies this week & the challenge is brought to you by us Blue Fairies with a theme you will love............
..........dont ya just love it;0) I went with a film I've not even seen but I picked the image 2 weeks ago & started colouring her so knew what film she was representing as soon as I started to colour this beauty up. Oh I also didnt make a card ;0)
My film title is - 'BUTTERFLY EFFECT'
..........yep I made a picture for my craft room. I decided I would start doing some colourings for my craft room & putting them in frames...........kinda like inspiration. 

I decided not to put too much on the frame as I want the image to be the main focus. However I had to add a butterfly ;0) These I got off Etsy, I will find the link later for you.

Of course I added a few flowers which are from WOC. The leaves underneath are Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Sprawling Ferns'

I took this pic before she went in the frame!!
This gorgeous image is by Aurora Wings & is called 'Indian Moth Fairy In Sari With Poppies' & I coloured her with copics..........I think it took me about 4-5 hours altogether to colour her...........I didn't do it in one night, I first started it about 2 weeks ago & spent about 2 & half hours on it. All the Copic Colours I have listed below.............
E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 - Skin
E49, E47, E44, E43, E40 - Hair
B97, B95, B93, B91, B00 - Sari
R59, R39, R37, R35 - Poppies
B97, B95, B93, B91, B00, BV08, BV04, BV02, BV00, V17, V15, V06, V01, White Gel Pen - Her Wings

B91, BV04, BV02, V06, V01, BV00, BG000, B0000, Blender Pen - Background

She did take me a long time to colour but she was worth it & I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm actually quite pleased with the way she turned out & I will colour her again in a different colour for my daughters bedroom ;0)

Midweek Magnolia's Challenge DT Card

Hi everyone, how you doin' ;0) 
Well its time for a new challenge over at Midweek Magnolia's & this fortnight we have another super duper easy one for you........
............they can either be in your stamp or a die-cut.........I used my favourite Flourish die-cut & also because one of my other faves I have used in another DT card which you will see later in the week......thats my surprise one ;0)
I have made my first Easter card, my plan is to send a few out to friends & family...........hopefully lol. The inspiration for using this image came from my lovely DT buddy Tina..........this is the first inking :0(

My flourishes are of course Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Swirl & Leaf' die, this is my absolute favourite die....but you may have realised that lol. The flowers are WOC, I'm not sure if the green ones are?? I also added a 'Vintage Pearl Pin' from the lovely Sandy.

This is the inside to compliment the front. The gorgeous papers are the new Pion A Day In May ' Lady 6x6' I inked the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink & machine stitched all layers. The seam binding is from my stash. The punched edge is from my MS PATP punch.

The lighter seam binding I shabbied up myself, made 2 bows & added a 'Metal Rose' from LLC to the centre & '20mm Apple', both I addded white gesso to.

The stamp is 'Tilda With Egg & Chicken' & I coloured her up with my Distress Ink markers & inked the edges with pumice stone.
Colours used are..................
Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo - Skin & Spun Sugar for the Cheeks
Antique Linen & Walnut - Hair
Scattered Straw & Frayed Burlap - Dress, Chick & Bag
Antique Linen - Eggs
Tumbled Glass & Weathered Wood - Background

The butterflies at the top I cut with Tim Holtz 'On The Edge - Butterflight', I cut them out twice & layered them up & added a rose to each centre. I added some beautiful 'Tulle Pleat Trim' along the bottom, I really love this stuff but hate cutting into it lol. I also added a 'Bark Heart' & the sentiment tag is from LOTV. I added Marianne Design small clock & added letters to spell 'Easter'.
I've added splodges of white gesso here & there ;0)

Thats it from me but please pop on over to the challenge blog to see my fabulous teamies creations, also check out who the new DT members are.............we have even more talented girlies joining us :0)

Thank you for stopping by it means a lot.
Tatty bye & big squishy hugs

Snail Mail

Hello my lovelies how are you all? I'm running a wee bit late with my SC post today as I have a poorly daughter :0( Natalie became unwell last night & weve had a rough night with her. Its always awful when your kiddies are poorly isn't it :0(
Anyhoo's for todays card I've used one fo the super gorgeous new images that the lovely sweet Krista recently added to her the 'eck did I choose one you ask...........eeny meeny miney..............!!! Actually I narrowed it down to 2 as I still couldnt pick just one, so I coloured 2 up but will show the other one another time ;0)
I have used the new Marianne Design Creatable die 'Anja's Border LR0300', its lush I love it!! I added white gesso, pearl spots from my pearl pen & a gorgeous 'Purple flower' to the centre. The lace is from my stash.

The super gorgeous papers I've used are Pion Flower Frames 'Viola 6x6' I love the frame one, its perfect for inside. I will probably add a die or 2 once I decide if I like the card enough to send to someone.......

The gorgeous image is 'Snail Mail', she's got such a sweet face hasn't she. I coloured her with copics & fussy cut her out. My printer has decided to print yellow lines around the images..........yep not impressed after trying for a week to get rid of them hubster brought me a new printer yesterday. Hopefully he's setting it up soon lol.
Colours I used are..............
E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 - Skin
E37, E35, E33, E30 - Hair
V99, V95, V93, V91, V000 - Dress, Bow & Sock Stripes
C5, C3, C1, C00 - Dress, Sock Stripes, Boots & Envelope
The banner is La La Land Crafts 'Heart Banner' & I've layered it up with some scraps of Maja Design paper. The butterfly is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Swirly Butterfly', this has been neglected for so long poor thing :0(  The flowers are all from LLC & I've added Magnolia's 'Sprawling Ferns' to them, I love these as you may have gathered lol. I've also added my favourite fence Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Lovely Fence'

Well I think thats it for me, but if you havn't seen the new images that Krista recently added to her store maybe if you were abducted by aliens which is why you missed them..then go have a look but be warned there may be lots of oohhhing & aahhing coming from your wee voice box ;0)

Thank you so much for stopping by & for all your lovely comments. Dont forget my candy is still running. Link is at the top of the sidebar ;0)

Tatty bye, big hugs to you all
