July Class in Northern California

I am so excited to be teaching at the Scrappers Edge in Eureka California.  Come have fun July 30th.  There are a few spots left if you are in the area.  We will get to color up these sweet images and learn some new techniques such as "no line" coloring and "painting with Copics".  We will review basics such as fur and wood as well as greenery.  Oh lets throw a little transparent in there too!  I look forward to seeing you there.

The number to call to get signed up is located under Class Schedule tab above or click HERE.

It is my day to create something using a stamp from Little Darling rubber stamps.  I chose the new stamp "wings" from the Dollhouse collection.  I have been looking forward to coloring this stamp up since the release.  I decided to do another "no line" coloring and I am pleased with the outcome.  By stamping the image in a very light color such as a pink or a gray and colored, the image appears to have no lines.  If you have never tried this you should.  The end results are stunning.  You can find this stamp HERE.

Thank you all for being so kind, for all the amazing comments and love over the years.  You are my pick-me-up when I am down.  Have I told you how much I love you lately?

Here is another look at the card from the last LDRS hop.  I wanted to share the color combos in case you LURV them.  I really enjoy the whole line of the "Dollhouse" collection.  You must take a look at them when you can.  You can go HERE.  I can't wait to show you some more as I get them colored.  Hint hint...I love fairies!

Some Bunny Loves You

I have had a pretty busy few weeks and  realized I needed to make a card for Little Darling Rubber clean and simple worked out just fine for me.  I know it's a rare sight to see but the image really does work perfect for a clean and simple type of card.  For this card I used "Some Bunny Loves You".  You can find it HERE in the Little Darling Store.

I See The Light

I have been struggling to find extra time for "me coloring time" but Zoe said I HAVE to do the challenges for her group...LOL.  She is so good to me to enforce I make time to grow in my coloring skills.  Here is the latest challenge "light through the trees".  It took me a week to figure out what I was going to do.  All of a sudden BAM!!! came to mind.  Here is my rendition of the challenge.  I am pleased with the results.  You can join our fun challenges on the MakeItColourful blog too.  Just head over HERE.
