Redonkadoodles soccer Football girl

Good afternoon, thanks for dropping by.  Its been a cold and rainy day here in Brisbane, and I have had the day off work... what better reason to lock myself in my craft room I say :-)  This is a card I did a couple of weeks ago for a lady who wanted a tomboy card for her grand daughter... a hard ask for me, who loves nothing less than splashing around loads of flowers and butterflies.  The main thing is that she was happy with what I made, and I rather surprised myself!!!! not a flower or butterfly in sight!

The image is from Redonkadoodles (the old Redonkulous Designs) called Soccer football girl.  I coloured her in the childs favourite colours- red and green. The black and white polka dot paper is velveteen to touch and came from a Kaiser Craft pad called Chapter One.  The green chequered paper is from a We Are Memory Keepers called Baby Mine.  I made the soccer ball with spellbinders Octagon and small circle nesties.  The banner stamp is a whimsy set.  the big brad, candle brad, ribbon and twine is from my ever growing stash.

Copic colours I used were:
YG 03, 63, 67
G 99
R 20, 22, 29, 85
E 000, 00, 04, 11, 21, 25, 29
W 1, 5
 N 1, 4, 6

Ratatouille by Saturated Canary

Hello, well last one for me tonight :-) Three in one night woohoo!!!! This image is Ratatouille by Saturated Canary. I have again used those reds, blues and yellows for this card.  Using paper from a Bo Bunny "serenity" pad.  I tried building on my confidence using red and have done a bigger area for this image.  I also used the E's in the copic range for my skin colouring rather than my usual YR's.  I am really happy with this card!  I haven't used and dies, I edged the image mat with a martha stewart edge punch called Doily Lace.  I have pleated the ribbon each side of the image and added loads of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added some red stamens and I used some adhesive rhinestones for added bling.

Copic colours I used were:
N 0, 1, 4
BG 0000, 01, 05
Y 11, 13, 18
R 20, 27, 39, 81, 85
E 000, 00, 13, 18, 19, 42, 50, 59

Saturated Canary Canary Love Using Reds!!

Hi- thanks for stopping by again! As promised, another card for tonight.  This time it is the lovely "Canary Love" by Krista Smith of Saturated Canary.  I used red for this one to match beautiful paper from a pad I bought some time ago.  I had to buy red copics, as it is a colour I am not confident in  using... but I am happy with the result (I only coloured a small area using red to get used to it). The paper came from a Bo Bunny pad called "Serenity".  I just loved those colours in the paper I HAD to replicate them :-) I also got a new die (well it was quiet some months ago, but this is the first blog appearance lol!  It is a spellbinders die called "Gold Labels Four" and the detail is intricately beautiful.  My only criticism is that the labels four nestie (which I have also used) does not sit perfectly on the gold label die cut :-(  I have also used the spellbinders large swirl die.  Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts (open roses (10mm and 15mm if I remember), sweetheart blossoms and hip rosebuds).  I have added some little red stamens I've had for years and a little bird cage charm from ebay.

Copic colours I used were:
E 000, 01, 04, 23, 40, 42, 57, 59
R 27, 29, 39
Y 11, 18
G 05
B 000
BG 0000, 01, 05

Saturated Canary "Princess Zella"

Good evening!!! Phew I've finally got some time to upload these cards I have had done for quiet some time! So sorry for my absence lately- things are just a whirlwind here... preparing for our baby (due 1st September) and also I have taken on a local monthly market called the handmade expo.  I do the Morayfield   one as it is close to home.  It doesn't make me millions, but keeps me out of trouble and pays for a copic or two :-)  Oh and it is a REALLY good reason to keep on crafting ('cause we all need a reason for that LOL!!!) 
Anywho, enough gabbling, tonight I have another Princess Zella image by the awesome Krista Smith from Saturated Canary.  I'm sorry it seems all I am doing is her images lately, but I just love them!!!  Onto the card.... 
I have used papers "Jaunt" by Authentique and "Kraft Notes" from Forever Friends pad.  The dies are MFT "large leafy flourish" and the corner die is a Cheery Lynn "Lace Corner Deco die".  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts (wild rose, poppies, hip rosebud, gypsophila) and I have added some crystals that I stuck to some fishing line to the flower arrangement.  The organza ribbon is from my stash ad the happy birthday cake charm I got from ebay.

Copic colours used were:
E 000, 00
R 81, 85
RV 13
E 15, 18, 19
B 000, 93, 97

Thanks for dropping by, I'll try and get a couple more cards loaded later tonight.

Going dotty for Southern Girls Challenge with a Day for Daisies.

Good morning. Feels like forever that I haven't posted on here, but I do have a couple of cards to upload that I did for my recent markets.  This post is a quick one, and I apologise that I do not have the copic colours I used to colour this gorgeous image by A Day For Daisies.  Her name is happiness, and has loads of pleats to practice your colouring with.  I wasn't sure if she had long flowing hair or a veil, so I opted for the princess veil, but I'm sure you could colour it as hair :-)

And that's who our sponsor is this fortnight over at the Southern Girls Challenge and the challenge Lou and Trace have set for us is "Going Dotty"... so lots of dots and spots!!!!  I have used paper from a beautiful Forever Friends pad I picked up whilst in Canberra last month.  The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and the butterfly is one of my acetate butterflies.  I have a tutorial under my tutorial label to the right hand side to do these butterflies.

So pop on over to the Southern Girls Challenge and show us your spots and dots :-)

I would like to enter in to the Wild Orchid Challenge by using three or more flowers.

Take care and stay safe. XOX Tania
