Just Magnolia, Whimsy Sneak Peek and Crafters Companion monthly challenge

I’ve got another novel today, there’s just so much happening at once all of a sudden.

First up is another Whimsy Stamps sneak peek.  Today I am showing Jingle Bell Ride – another of Crissy Armstrong’s amazing carousel horse images.

whimsy-jingle-all-the-way

The papers are from my scrap box, so I have no idea who they are by.  The gorgeous punch is one of the new Martha Stewart punches, the poinsettias are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I have applied Twinklets to them for some sparkle.  I’ve coloured the image with Copics and applied Fun Flock to the fur. The new Christmas images go on sale on 3rd October.

Copics used are:
Horse:  C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C0, C00
Greens: YG67, YG63, YG11
Reds: R29, R24, R22
Bells:  YR24, Y11

Next up is my card for the Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge – it’s one of my sketches with the option of a untraditional Christmas Card.  Well these browns and duck egg blues are about as untraditional as I could come up with

The papers are Eline’s Vintage Christmas (I just love this pad).  I’ve applied Diamond Stickles to the edges of the papers, the gold in the stickles really shows up against the darker shades.  The flowers – well I know the 15mm roses, 4mm rose buds and 25mm hybrid tea roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts but not sure where the blue one came from, I found it in a box of bits and bobs lol.  The lace is also from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The image was coloured with Copics:
Hair:  E55, E53, E51, E50
Skin:  E21, E00, E000, R20
Cardi, ribbons and slippers:  BG13, BG11, BG10, BG000
Trousers: E77, E74, E714, E70
Cat:  C5, C3, C0

And last my Just Magnolia card for the “Anything Goes” Special Monthly Challenge.

Another easel card (no surprise there then lol).  The gorgeous paper is MME La Paperie.  The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts again, 40mm hybrid tea rose, cherry blossoms, aster daisies, 4mm rose buds.

I’m still making the little tags (thanks for the fab idea Rach xx), they just seem to finish the card off perfectly.

The Copic colours are:
Hair, jeans, shoes and handbag: E79, E77, E74, E71, E70
Top: R85, R83, R81
Shopping bags: E44, E42, E40
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20

And after that novel I am going to lie down in a dark room rofl.

Thanks for stopping by,
