Just popping in today to share the latest Just Add Color project..

I chose to colour up the sweet little Pure Innocence girl called Love you a Bunch from the May Release..

This is another great opportunity for the DT to share their colouring skills with you all, plus more inspiration for the latest release..

This time I decided to just share the little girl coloured in..

I have a list of Copics that I used to colour her in…

Skin:  I start with a base line of E04, then add the next darkest colour E11, I blend that out with E01 and E00, I generally will go over the skin parts 2-3 times until I am happy with the blending..

Hair: Starting with the darkest colour where I feel the shadows would land on the hair, however, I have to add here, I just love to colour so getting shadows and doing the right things with Copics don’t always apply with me LOL..so E47 is my darkest on this hair, I then flick from that to E44, lightest E42, then the lightest E41..

Now with Skin and Hair, I don’t always start with the darkest colours, I do switch it out with the lightest colours first, just depends how lazy I want to be, but then again, some people just colour that way too :) each to their own I say..

So normally with these little PI girls I like to paper piece her outfits, but for the Just Add Color I wanted to colour the dress, so with the dress I used Rv52, R83, RV93 and RV91..

Shoes:  N4, N3, N1

I used these colours for what the flowers were wrapped in also..

The flowers themselves I added V04, V12, R14, R22 and Y19..

Looking forward to bringing a card here to my blog with this little sweetie..

Be sure to head over to the Blog to see the rest of the teams creations..

Back tonight for the MFT Sketch Challenge, for more details on the challenge and how you can enter for a chance to win, click HERE

I chose to use the Loveable Leopards, colouring in the one that is lying over the branch, such cuties…

I then worked on the background of my card, by adding a stencil feature using the Framework Stencil and Lemon Drop ink, upon looking it at it now, I think it needed a darker colour to show up in the photograph, but in real life it is so much better..

I then added my leopard along with a sentiment that I stamped and embossed with White Embossing powder onto Black Licorice card stock, die cutting around the sentiment using the Stitched Sentiment Strips..

Completing the card by adding some Birthday Girl Sprinkles to match the sketch..

Have fun playing along this week..





Hi Again

Thanks for stopping by again today..

Today is the day that you can all go shopping for the May Release Products at MFT, be sure to click HERE for the latest products..

I am going to be sharing 1 last card using the sweet Hello, Little One set..

I coloured in the images I wished to use and die cut these out, setting aside to work on the rest of the card..

Taking a piece of white card stock, I die cut a Stitched Rectangle and using the Basic Shapes-Circle Stencil, I applied inks of Wild Wisteria, Lemon Drop and Berrylicious, to create a soft background..

I added my stamped images along with a sentiment and some scattering of Clear Sequins and the card was complete..

Be sure to head over to the Blog where there are loads more inspiration..

Back today with the last day of the May Release Countdown for MFT, I really hope you have been enjoying what you see..

Today is day 1 and I have a cute little bunny card to share with you..

I firstly, took the image I wanted to use from the Sweet Somebunny and coloured in with Copics, die cutting out and setting aside..

Next, I took white card stock and die cut the Happy Birthday Circle Frame several times, adhering each of the layers together to form dimension..

Whilst still at the die cutting station, I took pattern paper from the Party Patterns paper pad, die cutting one of the solid balloons from the Balloon Alphabet..

To the card layer itself, I took some masking paper and die cut a circle into the paper, added the mask to the card and taking the Mini Cloud Stencil along with some Pink Lemonade ink, I applied over the mask..

I added my Happy Birthday Circle Frame, along with my bunny and balloon..

Completing the card by adding a stamp sentiment to the base of the card..

Be sure to swing past the blog to see the rest of the amazing creations..

I will be back with Reveal Day tomorrow..

I am back again with Day 2 of the May Release Countdown for MFT, I hope you are all starting to get your wish lists going and inspiration for crafting up this release, I for sure have had a fun time creating, I wish I could create more today, but sadly work takes place again today, but enjoy this post as it goes live whilst I work :)

I worked with the new set called Safari Party along with the word die called Party..

I firstly took the stamps out that I wished to use on the card, coloured in with Copics and die cut out..

I then took the word Party and die cut several layers, adhering each of the together to give dimension…

Next, I trimmed a piece of pattern paper from the Party Patterns paper pad and added this to the card front, I then die cut a piece of white card stock using the A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax 1 and added this panel to the centre of the pattern paper..

I adhered my word Party along with the animals and completed this card by adding a stamped sentiment onto Black Licorice card stock, that I embossed with white embossing powder and a scattering of Clear Sequins..

I will be back again tomorrow with the final day of the release countdown, be sure to check out the Team’s amazing creations yet again..
