Autumn Under the Sea

Hi, I have made it my goal to use every colour in my Copics pen collection. I found a fun challenge site called the iCopic Lover Challenge which puts different colour combos together. This weeks colours are orange, brown and yellow. Although these are colours I'm definitely not used to working with, I'm quite happy with how this turned out.

Here is a close-up of the mermaid. Although it doesn't show in the photo, I've added glossy accents to her tail to make it look wet.

I've also entered this card in the Magical Monday Challenge - another fun site. Their challenge this week is magical underwater. As well as the Crafty Sentiments Challenge - Autumn Colours.

Till next time,
Luv, Tereesa.

Bride with Buttons & Bows

Hi, The Cuttlebug Challenge for this week is to design a card using an image, a bow and at least 2 buttons. Whoopsi Daisy is sponsoring this challenge with their digital images, and as I love colouring, I thought I'd check them out. I couldn't resist this one - isn't she just gorgeous.

I've used the copics to colour her, and chose a pale pink for her dress rather than the traditional white. I couldn't find the right ribbon in my stash, so I layered a thin satin ribbon over a wider organza.

The "Roses" Cuttlebug folder is used for the background, and the edge is punched with the SU Scallop Trim punches. The flowers are inked around the edges, glitter added (of course), and layered. The buttons are then set in the centre.

I've also entered this card in the Whoopsie Daisy September challenge......create a card with all things flowery.

Hope you like it.

Till next time,
Luv, Tereesa.

Card - Amethyst Mist

Hi, As I haven't been able to do much over the last couple of weeks, I've been spending a lot of time colouring. I mainly used the Copics, but then decided to do some images using Watercolour Crayons. The crayons are used on this card, and as I love all the Sweet Pea stamps, I thought I'd enter it into the "In A Sweet Pea Dream" challenge.

Here is a close-up of the colouring. It is very similar to the Copics, although much softer.

To show you the difference, I've coloured the same image twice - the left with the Watercolour Crayons, the right with the Copics. I've tried to match the colours to give a similar effect.

This is a Stampin' Up image - again the Watercolouring is on the left, and the Copics on the right.

I hope this gives you another technique to try when colouring your images. I'll have some more to show you over the next few days.

Till next time,
Luv, Tereesa.
