Be Magical Today

One of my favourite shows growing up was I dream of Jeannie - I loved her outfits, her house in a bottle and the funny antics her and her Master would get up to.  I used this same image in an I Dream of Jeannie pocket letter because I love it so much.  You can get the image from The East Wind and find so many other beautifully drawn images for all occasions.

I created this image by printing two copies.  The head I have raised on 3D foam dots.  I used my clear Stickles to create her veil and organza pants.  The glue is very sugary and makes it not only texture rich but it looks shimmery and just like real organza.  I glossed her eyes, lantern and lips and added gems to her face, ear and bra-top.

The whole image was carefully cut around and then raised on 3D foam dots, which was layered over the patterned and plain paper.  I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday to plan my card.  I tilted the sketch to the left, so the curved bazzill is just behind her, and I mimicked the shape with the cloud paper too.

I doodled around the papers and added an acetate bubble shape. I accented the bubbles with gems.  Lastly I added the sentiment and some light pink organza ribbon.

Three little faeries in a nest

What a busy week I've had, Uni has me very busy with assignments - but I always find time to colour.

What cuter than a baby? A faerie baby!  Don't you just love this sweet image? It's from Mo's Digital Pencil and coloured with my Copics.

I decorated the image with some Stickles, gloss and tiny gems, then layered the picture on patterned papers.

I doodled some borders and then wrapped the card with some green and white twine.

I joined in with Mo's Challenge and used the sketch provided to create this card.

As you can see I have added a little sentiment.  This card can be for a girl or boy - even though I snuck in a couple of small flowers.  The little faeries remind me of Snuggle Pot and Cuddle Pie, so I tried to colour the tree branch like our Snow Gum Eucalyptus trees.

Harley Quinn Derby Girl

Sophia adores Harley Quinn; she of course hasn't seen the movie because she's too young, but she still loves her hair, makeup and clothes.  So much so that she dressed as Harley Quinn for Halloween last year - complete with blow up bat, glove and coloured hair.

As soon as I saw that Mo from Mo's Digital Pencil Too, drew this derby girl I knew straight away how I was going to colour her.  I used my Copics and filled in the little details like the heart on her cheek, scribbles on her stockings and lettering on her bat.  I also added holes to her shirt and gloss to her lips and eyes.

I doodled a border and then layered the image on some patterned papers that I had in my stash.  I chose colours that matched the girl, and stacked an acetate film strips and postage stamp from Tanya Leigh Designz before adding the sentiment.

As you can see I used my inspiration from this cute little Pop Vinyl, and everything is sitting on Sophia's shorts lol.  I made the bat by printing an online picture and laying the two pictures back to back and glueing.

Here is my sweet Sophia <3 p="">

Frogs and Flowers

It's challenge day again at Southern Girls Challenge Blog - and this fortnight it's all about

I have used a cute image from Imagine That Digi Stamps and coloured it with my Copics.  I accented with gloss on their eyes and the hearts.

I used some different scraps of cardstock to layer the background of my card, then adhered some paper flowers.  They come individually in a pack, so you can mix-and-match the colours and amount of layers.  I added some gems to their centres for added sparkle.  This image also comes with five sentiments and a pre-coloured image.

I love to read

I am 4 books deep into the Outlander Series and I've lost my faithful bookmark - given that my previous book travelled with me everywhere, to appointments, in the car, camping - you name it, it went everywhere - so my bookmark could be anywhere!!

Fast forward to now - and I've made myself a new one.  This one has a cute image from Some Odd Girl, which I coloured with my Copics.  Then I layered her on strips of patterned paper and a 3-in-1 word ring and clothes tag from Tanya Leigh Designz.  There's also some doodling, a kitty sticky note, die cut heart and a ticket.

I finished off my new bookmark with some sparkly red cardstock, some bling and a strip of orange paper that comes on the bottom of your cardstock and you usually chop it off - everything gets used in my craft room!

There you have it! She even has glossy glasses :)  Are you reading anything interesting at the moment? Let me know in the comments - I'm always looking for a new book to add to my collection.
