Sweet - Just Like You

Isn't she a cutie? This is Dandy as Candy from Tiddly Inks. She is so fun to color, those long legs and all of the different shapes within her dress makes coloring her a blast.

I like to color with no lines so that is what I have done with Dandy.

This is a close up and a listing of the colors I used:
Skin - E04, E11, E00, E000, R20
Clothes - E79, E77, E74, E71, E70, N6, R85, R83, R81, BG11, BG18, BG32
Hair - YR21, YR23, E57, YR94, YR00, YR23

The sentiment was cut using my Cameo Silhouette (love this machine). I cut it using brown and pink cardstock.

Thought I would take this beauty and enter her in the Tiddly Inks DT Call going on through July 15th. Interested? You can find the details here -->

Where have I been?

Hi folks,

It has been a while since I have done any posting. Have been very busy with life, taking some time for the soul, and just to catch my breath. It has been a non-stop adventure but it is at a slower pace than what I am used to.

So, here are a few pics of what has been happening in my life over the past few months.

                                                            Flowers for Mother's Day

School plays (granddaughter in yellow)


Pool construction

Swimming (kind of, wasn't full yet)

Ice cream at Grandma's after a long day in the pool

Grandson and mom after T-ball game

T-ball and baseball games

Playing with Elliott, youngest grandson

Grandma time


5k's with granddaughter and daughter

 Lots of swimming .........

 Learning about heat transfer vinyl

So that's it in a nutshell ..... a lot has been happening and I have a lot of memories to go with it!

See ya soon with some new art.

Vinyl Products

Been finally putting my Silhouette to use. Bought it awhile back and it quickly replaced my Cricut (no cartridges needed) however I didn't really realize the full potential. This machine is fabulous!!

Here are some of the most recent items I've made. If you are interested in purchasing any one of them, or have a custom order, just head on over to my Zibbet shop (link in sidebar).

 And even incorporated Copics!!

Here is a close up of the image. I chose to do no line coloring and then sporadically placed circles around the area. I am pleased with how this turned out and my granddaughter loved it!

Whimsical Mushroom and Sapphire Sitting Fairy

Today I would like to share a fun little card I made using Sapphire Sitting Fairy and Whimsical Mushroom from Make it Crafty. These are a couple of older digital stamps that are really fun to color. 

I used Word to merge the two images together so Sapphire would be sitting atop of the mushroom. I printed these using a light outline for no line coloring. Here is a close up:

I colored the images with the following Copics:
  • Skin - V25, V22, V20, BV0000
  • Hair - YR27, E97, YR18, YR04, YR01
  • Clothes - G99, G94, G85, G82
  • Mushroom - E57, E55, E53, E50
  • Grass - YG25, G99, G94, G85, G82
  • Ground - E44, E42
  • Shadow - N5
  • Bug - R27, R24, R22, N9
Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Be sure to check out all of the fabulous images at Make it Crafty!

Beautiful Peacock

Are not these new Make it Crafty birds so gorgeous? So many to choose from. You can find the whole collection of digital birds here

I chose to use Beautiful Peacock for our current challenge of Feathers. I have always been in awe of their gorgeous tails and the bird in general. And so many color choices out there.
For coloring I decided to go with the most common colors - blues and greens.

After coloring the tail I added some Wink of Stella to get that shine that you see on the real bird. Although it does not do the bird justice it does add to it.
