Krista Smith Canary Love

Good evening! I am so happy to be able to get another card done today as its back to work for me tomorrow :0(  Yet another Krista Smith image here called "Canary Love". You can get her free here. She was a challenge to colour- I am trying hard to work on my frills, and this image had plenty of them!!! I have followed the sketch from Simon Says Stamp (which I have flipped onto its side) and have used three types of designer Paper: My Mind's Eye: Fidlesticks - you and me Bloom paper; and also from MME: Lush - Blue floral paper; and from Graphic 45: Little Darlings - Baby border.   I have flowers from Kaiser craft and Wild Orchid Crafts, a ribbon slider and a moonstone brad (also from WOC) there are little rhinestones on the sentiment and also in the bod of the butterfly.  Ribbon from stash.  AND of course stickles and dimensional magic :0)

Krista Smith "Jules"

Good morning...It was so nice today to be able to sit down and make a card. I have been oober busy the last couple of weeks, and today, I had give in to my withdrawals and make a card.  And what better image to use than a free one from Krista Smith!  I come by 4 free images from the super talented Ms Smith here.... you can get your this one plus others here.... Love free things, especially when I have spent so much in Saturated Canary's etsy and now her website- its nice when people reward their avid addicts LOL!!  BUT PLEASE PLEASE SUPPORT KRISTA BY BUYING HER DIGIS TOO AND NOT JUST TAKING THE FREEBIES!!! This beautiful little lady is called Jules...ooohhh I just want to eat her up she is so cute!!! I have coloured her with copics and added some dimension magic and glitter.  I found this pen called a "glaze"pen- its almost dimension magic but in a pen, and you can get fine detail with it and then sprinkle some diamond dust over it and it sticks.....Only problem that I dont like is that it tends to dry white....so it worked well here for me for the frills on her dress, but I cant use it to gloss up her eyes or lips :0(
Onto the Card..... I have followed a lovely sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp by Claire and have tried a new technique for (me anyway) by stitching the edges...still need to work on that- try and get my zigzag a little closer together :0).  The chequered paper is by Graphic 45 called "Peek a Boo" and the brown swirl paper is a Basic Grey paper called "Drama Mod".  I make the hat pins, I pop a moonstone brad from WOC inside a diamonte ribbon slider and added some flower from Kaiser Craft adn Wild Orchid Crafts.  The front sentiment stamp is from a Kaiser Craft set called freindship sentiments and the inside sentiment is from a Hot off the Press set called Expressions.

I would like to enter in the challenges:
Sunday Sketch and Stamp: sketch by Claire
PaperTake Weekly: All things Girlie
Bearly Mine Challenges: Girly Birthday

Krista smith Zorana and a new technique with Copic Oz blogspot

Hi again!! Another Krista smith image for you, this time its Zorana the gypsy dancer.  I stuck with just blues this time and am happy with the overall result.  The paper is Authentique.  I have used Spellbinders Romantic Rectangle and MFT Dizzy Doily die.  Some dew drop pebbles, ribbon, stickles and the centre flower is a button with the back cut off.  The flower is three layers of paper petals by Green Tara.  I tried a new technique I learned over at Copic Oz blogspot with the pebbles....something I will work on, but happy with my first attempt :0). 

A short and sweet post.

Krista Smith.... Thank You

hello! thanks for stopping by today.  this little cutie is another from Krista Smith over at Saturated Canary called "Thankyou".  I have coloured her up with copics.  The bottom DP is from a Prima pad called "Fairy Belle", the flower DP is a My Minds Eye card called "Fiddlesticks You & Me Bloom paper".  I wasn't sure about putting purple and yellow together, but it kinda works and I am growing to like it! I have followed an awesome sketch from Creative Inspirations.  Flowers are from WOC with a litle colour added to cream flowers to match my design.  Ribbon and slider are from my stash. the cute little sentiment on the front is from a My Sentiments Exactly clear set called "a little birdie"- I cut the bird off the swirl part of the stamp.  The inside sentiment is from a set of stampin' up stamps (not sure of the name of the set).  The flourish die cut is called "Leafy Flourish" by My Favourite Things.  I have thrown around some pearls, stickles and dimension magic.

I would like to enter in to the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly: anything goes
Bearly Mine Challenge: Use a ribbon(s) and a Bow(s)
