Kangaroo Tag

 Hello everyone! Today I am playing with pencils. Prisma colored pencils. I actually started out using colored pencils. Not Prismas, it was a cheap brand of watercolored pictures. I just used them dry. 

The adorable stamp set I used is from Alpaca Pals. Ever heard of them? I hadn't until about a month ago. My friend Cathy turned me on to them. OMG!! They are so stinking cute! 

So cute that I had to make an order right away. A very large order! Lol! 

Look at all these goodies! It was my birthday gift to myself. I bought these stamps with pencils in mind. I think they are perfect for learning to color with pencils. 

I have been wanting to use my pencils more. I want to get to know my pencils like I know my Copics. It's going to take a lot of practice! 

And on that note, I am off to color! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a craftastic day!

Scrappy Boy You're Entirely Bonkers

Hello crafty friends. I am back with my last Scrappy Boy Alice in Wonderland themed card. Well, the last one for a while. I know I will be using these stamps again in the future. 

I have always loved how mischievous the Chesire Cat is. I also love his big eyes. The Scrappy Boy stamp doesn't have big eyes, but with a little bit of creative color placement, I was able to change that. It's amazing what you can do with these Copic markers! 

In the cartoon, he is pink and purple, but in the newer movie, he is teal and grey. I like teal and grey a lot better together!  

Coloring this card was sooooo relaxing! It was just mindless color placement. Not like some of the other backgrounds I do that take a lot of thought and work to put together. Art does not come easy to me. Lol...I have to put a lot of energy into it.

The stamp is from Scrappy Boy's We're All Mad Here stamp set. I love this little guy! He's so stinking cute. Much cuter than the movie character in my opinion. 

Anyhow, I decided he would look great next to a signpost with arrows pointing in all different directions. I hand drew the post and the signs. My inspiration was a picture that I found on Pinterest.

I have had so much fun creating with these Alice in Wonderland stamps.

Alice In Wonderland Inspired Card with Scrappy Boy Stamps

Hello friends! I have my mojo back!! I could hardly stop putting ideas together with the Off With Their Heads and the Curiouser Stamp Set stamp sets from Scrappy Boy Stamps. I had seven card ideas put together before I stopped myself. I thought I'd better get going on some coloring. Haha 

I stamped the images on the paper and then I drew in the background with pencil. One thing to remember about drawing in backgrounds is to make sure that you do it very light. Once you go over the pencil with your Copic Marker, it is there forever.

Scrappy Boy Curiouser Stamp Set

Hello friends! I have another Scrappy Boy Alice In Wonder Land Card for you. I have to say it again...working with these stamps totally inspired me and got me wanting to color again. 

For this card I used the Curiouser Stamp Set. I love that Scrappy Boy has Alice sitting and Standing in the stamp sets.

I used the jar and the tag from the Clearly stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. I love that Scrappy Boy allowed me to use this set to accompany his adorable Alice. I was able to create a pretty fun scene combining the two companies products.

Until next time...Happy crafting!

Twistooon Hamburger

Hi there! It's been a hot minute since I've done a blog post. I am happy to be back at it. 

Today's card is made with an adorable image from Twistoon...Hamburger.  

I loved coloring this guy! It took some time and about a gazillion markers, but it was fun! 

To find a sentiment I went to Google. I was surprised at how many cute sentiments popped up. Nice Buns won, but my girls and I had a good laugh over many of them. 

Here's the list of markers that I used...

Scrappy Boy Enjoy the Waves

 Hi! Back with another Scrappy Boy Card!! For this card, I used the Scrappy Boy Summer with My Gnomies Set

The Scrappy Boy Summer with My Gnomies Set has tons of project possibilities! Barbara Sproatmeyer, a very talented artist and colorist has made many cards with this set. You can check them out on her blog HERE. While you are at her blog, check out the classes that she teaches!

When I first finished this card, I was not liking it. The clouds weren't right, the water is streaky, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. Sometimes it helps if you walk away and come back to it also. Which I did. 

Water: BV23, BV20, BG72, BG13, BG11, B01, G20, B41
Wood: W3, E47, E44, E43, E30, BG75, BG11, G46, G20, YG61, YG65
