I have had so little time to colour or create over Christmas, but just wanted to share my Inky Pinkies DT project for this week, that I have just managed to complete.

Image is 'Joyful' by Polkadoodles and coloured with Copics and SN Sparkle Pen.

Hopefully there will be more time to create once the School holidays are over and I can play with all my new craft goodies.

Slinky Snowman

Just enough time for my final Christmas card of the year, it is using an image from Slinky Tart, called 'Snowman'.

I created the layout in Silhouette Studio, and used 2 different fonts for the writing.  Chantily Snow for the capitals and witchy brew for the rest, I think they go together well.

The image is coloured with Copics and I added plenty of my favorite SN sparkle pen to the white fur on her outfit.

I think you can just about see it :)

And finally I would like to wish you all a wonderful  Christmas and hope you get plenty of crafty goodies from Santa

Love & Hugs

Rudolph & Frosty

Hi everyone, I have been so short of time these last few weeks, with work and life in general, I almost forgot to make my little man a Christmas card.

So last night I grabbed a couple of images from the Polkadoodles Festive hollybobs collection and layered them onto a background from the Frosted Winter collection and voila a little scene for my little man.  It was created in Silhouette studio, which is how I also added the greeting.

So here is this weeks DT inspiration for  Inky Pinkies.

I coloured with Copics except for the red, which is Graph-it markers, I used an old piece of flannel with a little surgical spirit to dab on the reindeer for texture and added some lovely sparkles with a clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.

Now I am off to colour something up for Hubbys card.

Polar Hugs

For my Inky Pinkies DT card today, I am using another image from the Polkadoodles 'Frosted Winter' collection, the whole collection is just beautiful and I really love colouring them, just perfect for Christmas and winter birthdays.

Today I have used Polar Family.  I started by playing around with a background idea, I was aiming for a northern lights look, not sure I achieved it, but I like the end result anyway.

I used Copics in blue, green, and pink then dripped surgical spirit using a pipette, but some of my splurges were a little big, I also dotted some silver 'Graph-it' shake.

I coloured the remainder of the image with my Copics and added my new favourite craft item, the Spectrum Noir sparkle pen over the white parts of her coat.

Look at the sparkle it give.

I added a little mistletoe die with pearls and a large handtied bow. Last minute I decided to colour up an MDF sentiment with some added sparkle.

I saw Nikky colour this image on create and craft and was inspired to add different colours to the bears to reflect the lights, I would never have tried this before, but I think it really works - Thanks Nikky Hall x
