Yellow Dressed Rupunzel

Today I felt the urge to play with one of my Sassy girls; and so I chose Rupunsel. I looked up a few of my favorite challenges; and this is what I came up with.
I decided to go very soft on her hair and skin and give her deep green eyes. You can find the Copic colors I used below. I then used my Airbrush to do the background with BV04 then with Y13 went around and gave it that border. I was really lazy and thought that I could kinda not spray the image....BIG mistake! I got some over spray on her face and dress. So then I had to go back with my colors and try to minimize that over spray. Next time for sure I will do a mask and get a lot closer to the image.

Hair:E34,31,YR30 Skin:YR000, E000,0000 Blush: R01 Eyes: G28,24,21 Stockings: E81
Shoes: E27,25,21 Dress Y11,00,0000

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
  • Simon Says Stamp - lemon and lavender

  • iCopic- Weekly Challenge #36 Airbrush

    True Friend Tilda

    Made this card for Top Tip Tuesday this week challenge: T is for....?
    In my card T is for: Tiara, True Friend, Turquoise, Tag, Tilda, and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

    Join us for this challenge for a chance to win a prize from our 3 great sponsors:

     Here is a closeup of Prom Queen Tilda, So SWEET! Colored her with my Copics.
     A side view; I sprayed the whole card with Pearl Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to give it a real nice shimmer. The tag and turquoise flower and butterfly were all sprayed with turquoise blue Glimmer Mist. You can see it better on the previous picture; but here you can see the flower bunch from a different angle :0) I love those rosebuds; can't find them anywhere else than WOC! LOVE them, I only have the ivory colored ones; so I inked them up with my Milled Lavender Distressed pad....oh so clever of me! ; ) I have also started to use the wire tail of my flowers to add the curlies; just wrap them over a thin paint brush then remove the paint brush and there you have it... perfect little coils!
    I am entering this card in the following Challenges:

    Thanks for stopping by; Til next time:)

    I knew I wanted to do a summer love card and was went out to find some nice quotes. Not only did I find this fab quote but I found it as a freebie at Sentimental Sunday....Double caching!! I embellished my card with this Love metal heart, and some golden ribbon, also added that pretty little rosebud :), last I added my dew drops that I can't live without and found these precious tiny buttons in my stash. Altogether super happy with my card :0)

Just look at all that shimmer! I also had an attempt at the flower clusters with a mix of my stash and WOC. I couldn't resist topping off the cluster with a pin of my very own:)
     My sentiment was created by my new friend Marion and is a freebie on her blog...I asked her if she would do some sentiments in Spanish; and she agreed....isn't she great? I know!!

    Vintage Rose

    Hello, I would like to share this card that I made especially for the Copic Creations 2yr. Blogoversary. The theme was Vintage/Distressed with Copics. I immediately thought of this stamp that I got in a thrift shop for really cheap :) don't you just love a bargain? It is by PSX; I colored it with my Copics...of course:) I tried making it a little more vintage by adding W1 to the white space in the rose petals to give it a softer look. I also used a lot of W5, W3 throughout the image to give it a more distressed look. I was pretty happy with the results. I used the challenge sketch from Paper Pretties; and will be entering this card in both challenges.
     Here are the Copics I used. I don't think I have ever used such few markers.....LOL.
    Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out my Candy HERE!

    Ride em Cowgirl!!

    I made this gift trio for my dear sister...for her birthday. She loves horses and is a total cowgirl so I combined that with her favorite color (hot pink)...and this is what I came up with. It was really fun making these for her and I really do think she will love them. I made her the card, a notebook cover, and the tiny gift box.
     Here is a closeup of the card, I used Meljens digi stamp(Ride em Cowgirl) colored her with Copics. My sentiment is from Fiskars. The hot pink crocet flower was made by my Gradma (she made me a bunch, but I don't want to use them up) I only use these flowers on very special cards:) I think this card came together quite nicely.....
    I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
    ABC Challenge: V is for Variety
    Sketch Saturday: #157
    Fab n Funky :What'eva & DT call (entering GDT)
    Sisterhood of Crafters :Button Box
    OLLCB: DT Call/ Birthday (entering DT Call)
    Outlawz Greeting Challenge: Anything Goes
    Scrappy Frogs Challenge: Happy B-day

     And here is the closeup of the notebook cover. I kept it pretty simple, so that things won't be coming off during use. I did add the big bright pink ribbon, a die cut tag, a flourish, some dew drops, and one of my handmade pins. Everything fell right into place....don't you just love it when that happens?
    I will be entering this project in the following Challenges:
