Whisper of the Sea!

Hello to all! Its time for some mid-challenge inspiration from the Aurora Wings Stella DT for the Once upon a Time challenge.  I hope you will join us for this fun challenge!
I have picked Hans Christian Anderson - The Little Mermaid and Whispers of the Sea from Aurora Wings as my inspiration.



This fabulous image is coloured with Copic markers and Holbein Artists Colored pencils. I received the pencils as a recent gift.  They are expensive, for pencils.   The colours are lovely but I have yet to decided whether they are any better, or different to my FC Polychromos pencils.
Card base is Centura Pearl and designer paper is Kaisercraft.
The background for the stamp has been sponged through a die cut with Distress Inks.  The flowers are punched and acetate glitter layer and the sentiment has been die cut!  I have used sparkle drops, shells and gems to decorate the card.  Also various other stamped and fussy cut images.


Image Whispers of the Sea from Aurora Wings can be found here:

Colouring Fun!

Hello lovely people.  I have not been about much on blogger recently.  
The weather has been exceptionally good here in the UK!  
I can't remember a recent summer like this one and we have been off out and about.  
The garden is an explosion of colour and is also taking up a lot of my time.  
I have managed to do a little late night colouring!
My project is a mixed media creation made just for fun and for The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge.


The sweet image is from the Coloriage Wild pad and has a base coat of Copic marker, then FC Prismacolour pencils to add detail, tone and shape.
There is also some white and black gel pen definition.  I have been practising with charcoal pencils and would really like to sketch with these.  I added some hair detail with charcoal and made a lot of mess and smudgy fingerprints over the background.  
She was therefore fussy cut and put onto a watercolour background which had been coloured and stamped with Distress Inks.  
The background was embossed to add detail and interest and the image added on top.
I am really pleased with the finished results!


This is the image as a work in progress.  You can see how the extra detail and the background warms the colour tones. 
This image has been one of my all time favourites to colour!

 Happy crafting fun to all!
  
Hope you are all having a fabulous summer (where it is summer)!
