DollHouse Tag Fly By

Hiya guys I'm busy busy busy. Working behind the scenes. Trying to keep up with my busy life. We're always on the go and the two days we've been home I've been able to color YES and Create!!! lol! I get on serious coloring mode and try getting my DT requirements done. 

Anyways  I'm here again to share another tag I created and this time I'm using one of the most recent  Rubber stamp collection added to LDRS, "DollHouse". 
Her name is Fly By  and I have watercolored her using various mediums. 
I used Distress Ink pads and Marvy watercolor pens and pencils.

I'm also using LDRS Dewdrop Border die to trim the bottom of the tag. 
Once again I used the Vintage Affections Postage Sentiment. I just love the size of the of  these and the sentiment doesn't get lost with everything else.






Thank you for stopping by and will see you back here really soon. 
Have a great safe weekend

Saturated Canary Pricilla


Hello I'm back with my second post today.
If you're swing by to visit me through Trudie's BDAY HOP just scroll down.

Today is my turn to share some LDRS Inspiration and I decided to watercolor a cute
Saturated Canary Rubber stamp named Pricilla. I colored with TimHoltz Distress Ink pads and detailed with pencils.

I kept a rose and brown tone going so photographing was a bit tricky cuz it kept picking it up like sepia lol!

I used one of the latest LDRS Dies Dewdrop die which I cut two times and touched it up with a pink soft lace on top of them both.

Now my sentiment is from the Vintage Affections Postage set. I can't stress enough the size of it....IT'S REALLY AWESOME! The stamp sentiment doesn't get lost and stands out just right.





That's all for me today and  I promise I'll be back soon 
Thanks all for the visit
and have a wonderful weekend! HAPPY EASTER!

Kraft coloring Make It Crafty TAGS

Ok Peeps I'm back and WARNING POST is heavy on pictures due to a double creation.

It's my turn to share some inspiration for the Make It Crafty Team.
This month challenge is coloring on kraft paper with pink!!! AHHH!!! To say the least I was in panic mode because I'm not so sure of my pink coloring but after huffing and puffing and mind you this is take two lol! The first time my pink looked like red so I threw in the towel on that one. I tried picking some easy images that I thought would be simple and fast lol!
So that being said I went with these two lovely ladies 

Sarah on the left and Loving Maya on the right
So yes I did it and it wasn't so bad after all. 


I started with my copics on skin then hair and then went in  with my Polychromo pencils to touch that up and for the clothes it was all done with just pencils. Shading was done with cool Greys and warm. Kraft paper and pencils really work well together It has this pop that you can't get from the markers due to the texture of the kraft paper. 

My worry was using PINK LOL! 

I didn't think I was going to be able to pull it through but it wasn't that scurry after all.
 Was hyperventilating for nothing tehee.

I created two fun shabby shic tags with lots of layering YIKES! I was going for CAS LOL!!!



This is Loving Maya she was my fun to color. I gave her some nice tone legs :) 


Do you see my Squeezes sentiment from MIC HUGS word laser chipboard. You can't tell but it's actually popped out off the tag using some wire.



This is Sarah, I actually zoomed coloring her since I had gotten the use of things by then. The only thing was.... the BALLOONS! I don't know if ya notice but I REALLY don't like to color balloons shhhh!!! IDK why but ack lol!


lots of layering too and this on has the MIC Doodle Girlfriend laser chipboard popped out


Sorry for the heavy pictures but it was a lot to share today. I'll be back sooner or later lol! 
Thanks for swinging by and have a great weekend

From The Hollow Serena Layout


Happy Hump Day peeps !

Well trying to get by the frigid cold here I tell you.

Anywhoo today is my turn to share some LDRS Inspiration!

 I want to share a little Lay Out I created for Miss Serena here she's from one of the Newest collections at Little Darlings Rubber Stamps" From the Hollow".

I tried staying within the Autumn colors and added the black to fancy it up a bit. 
 Serena was colored only with copics , showcased with Graphic 45 Designer paper and various designer dies. 


I think this sentiment set accompanies In The Hollow stamps just perfectly. 
This time I used "Be Unique" because that's what Serena is , a Unique fairy :) 

Enchanted Wishes

The sentiment set comes with various quotes that could be used in various occasions weather is birthday or a simply Hello.

New Girl Power Playtime from Saturated Canary


Hello peeps I'm back, it's my turn to share some LDRS inspiration. 
I have to say that this card was my favorite card to go to the CHA Winter 2015 Show. 

One of the NEW Saturated Canary Girl Power Rubber stamp and GREAT News she's now available at the LDRS store along with all the CHA releases.

This girly is named Play time by Saturated Canary.  
I colored her with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and re-inkers and a few Tombow markers. The designer papers are from Marion Smith Mad Tea collection set.


just lovin this little girls eyes. 
I think she would be perfect for many occasions and now that I think about it, I owe my little girl a bookmark and think she would be just perfect for the task.


I added many elements to the card trying to go for a grudge shic style with the Kraft paper and overall brown distress brown tones. One of the elements was adding these adorable flower cuts from the LDRS Square die set then placing them at random parts through out the card.





and lastly adding one of my favorite sentiments from this elegant Vintage Affections Girlfriends set. Every sentiment is designed with so much detail and the attention to the Calligraphy is above and beyond.


Well that's my Tuesday of sharing some loving and I hope your day is sweet as can be. 
Stay warm and have a lovely week, I hope we get a brake with this snow :(  we're at 22" yesterday and their saying more is coming tonight but @ 3 to 4" I just hope it's not another storm!
((HUGS))
