MFT Colour Challenge No 74

It's time for another Colour Challenge over at My Favorite Things!

I chose to use "You Have My Heart" - just look at that well behaved little pooch, maybe he could teach my Westie a thing or two.

The rules are pretty simple, just incorporate colours inspired by the ones listed below in your project.......

 and you could be the lucky winner of
$50 Gift Voucher

I am still practicing for the October classes and as you can see I had a little fun adding pleats and patterns to the girl's dress.  Have you spotted the other change.......no not the eyes.......I swapped out the heart she is holding on the stamp for a bone.  Hence the dog's tongue is sticking out, he's drooling in anticipation of being given his treat!

With just a little imagination you too can personalise your images - the tiny flowers on her top are really simple to do.  I coloured the dress as normal, then used the colourless blender marker to add tiny little dots in the shape of little flowers........see I did say it was really easy!

For anyone who wants to colour along here are the Copic colours:

So why not have a go......I so look forward to seeing your wonderful creations

Anyone for a colouring challenge?

Hi there, I've been colouring another face......this girl is having so much fun right now!

Anyway, it's time for the 
My Favorite Things Weekly Sketch Challenge

I chose Super Boy to help me play along with this sketch.....

But I wanted to keep on experimenting with new techniques (well, new to me!) so I inked the sky and grass area with Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw and Old Paper Distress ink.  Then I drew in the steps by hand and coloured them with Copic.

Superboy himself was stamped on Copic card with, shock horror MFT Licorice Black Hybrid ink....yes, I know - black!!  I then fussy cut him and mounted him on the finished card with foam tape.

Oops, nearly forgot, the top area was cut with Stitched Basic Edges 2 Die-namics after I'd inked it and then stamped with a sentiment from Essential Sentiments set.  Finally I mounted it on foam and adhered it to the card....ta da!

As always, if you'd like to play along.......or just practice for the class in October, then here is the Copic list:

Thanks for dropping by and if you've never tried the challenge before, I highly recommend you give it a go........I had such fun with this one.

Happy Colouring

Snow in July - you must be joking!

Hello there, what are you up to?

Me, I am trying to work out the basics of my Copic Class so I am busy practicing colouring faces, hair etc in between DT projects.

Here is the latest one using Birdie Brown - Warmest Wishes.

I am also stretching myself artistically by experimenting with inks as well as my trusty Copics.......yes, I know, I'm a bit behind the times, but hey, I've spent the last 7 years teaching myself Copics!!

Anyway, I blended Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans on to a piece of watercolour card - the water splat part wasn't overly successful.........any help/advice would be greatly received 😆

The little Birdie Brown girl was stamped on Copic suitable card with MFT Gravel Grey Hybrid ink, not so pale that it disappears but more subtle than jet black.  I then coloured her with Copics.  On this occasion I was testing out texture techniques......on her hat and the quilting design I added to her coat - what do you think? 

Now, I don't know about you but I couldn't quite work out why she's lifting up her coat so I used my usual quirky imagination and decided to have her playing with falling sparkly snowflakes........I used a white gel pen and some tiny sparkly jewels.

As always here is the Copic list:

Who would like to learn how to colour faces, hair and clothing?  As you may know I am flying across the Atlantic to Florida 14 - 15 October to teach another class at My Favorite Things, Eustis, Florida.
