Best Friends Fur-Ever!


Welcome Dreamerland Crafts Fans!

Cat Doctor Is In!


Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

We have a brand new release for Get Well Wishes from High Hopes Rubber Stamps! Today I’m sharing what I’m calling the Cat Doctor Is In, featuring “Nurse Kitty” (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the image and High Hopes Rubber Stamps – “Get Well Soon Script2”.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE black cats and so I just had to colour this image in the darker colours! LOL! Coloured the image using Copic markers and then used PrismaColor Premier Black pencil to create the fine fur texture.

The striped background paper was chosen because it reminded me of the Candy Stripers who used to volunteer at all of the hospitals when I was younger. (Dating myself here! LOL!) Hoping this little kitty puts a smile on someone’s face and cheers them up!

Faery Ink Birthday Card


Hi There,

Sharing a birthday card that I made using the fairy for this month’s challenge over at Faery Ink using Fairy2 image.

FaeryInkBDCard

Here is a close up:

FaeryInkBDCard-CU

 

I printed the image and coloured it in using my Spectrum Noir markers. Details of colouring image are below.

Then I fussy cut out the image.

I wanted her to look like she was floating in water and mystical, so I used watercolour paper and Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst Turquoise and Ultramarine Blue. As the paper was drying I sprinkled some Sea salt onto the paper and just love the effect that it created. I also used my hot gun to dry the paper a little faster.

Positioned circle die from Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the portion of the background that I wanted.

Next I cut out the dark blue background using AC Specialty Paper 5 x 7 foil with die cut from My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.

Used Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the larger circle and then embossed the circle with We R Memory Keepers Polka Dot Embossing Folder. Inked around the edges with Stampin Up! Tempting Turquoise Ink.

Lastly, I used the new free embossing folder that came with Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine – Issue 148. I used DCWV Cardstock Neutrals paper and then once the image was embossed I used very light sandpaper to go over the image and bring out the white core to enhance the image.

I layered all of the above using 3M VHB tape.

Lastly, I stamped “Happy Birthday” from Jennifer Ellory – Bake a Cake Clear Stamps with VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail

Spectrum Noir Markers Used:

Hair: GB1, GB3, GB6

Eyes: LG2, Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen

Wings: BT2, TB2 (Added Wink of Stella – Clear for sparkle)

Dress: BT2, TB2, IB2 (Added Wink of Stella – Clear for sparkle)

Leaves: CG1, DG2, DG4

Roses: DR2, DR4, DR6
