Distress ink colouring

Hi all I havent done a card today as I have been practicing with my distress ink colouring I am still not getting it right but practice practice I still think I am a little to heavy handed with the ink 
but hey ho 

The first image I have to show you is Christmas hugs magnolia

 I used distress inks on this image did ok untill I messed up the background with to much black trying to create shadowing if I had left the black off it would have been ok I also then made it worse trying to fix it lol grrr very annoying when rest of image was ok

 I did this one with my distress markers I have watched a few tuts and they seem to be able to blend but it was just not happening to me this is the second image the first was a mess instead of going direct to paper with the pen then blending as this just did not work I scrimbled the ink on to a block then added water I also put a thin layer of water on the bit of the image I was colouring it sort of primed it and blended better. the face is a bit to dark for me and messed up the socks looks like she has been wearing them for a week lol and are very dirty so but hey this was the first attempt in colouring with my distress pens the hair I was very happy with and the blue dress turned out ok 

I just wanted to share my journey in colouring with distress ink and pens

hugs Wendy

Magnolia with pressie

Hi folks well today I have been playing with Tilda again 

So Today I used the above tilda cute I coloured her with Fleximarkers and prisma pencils I am normally a copic girl but wanted to see what the effect was I love soft colours of the fleximarkers the only down side is they are very juicy so you have to be very light on your hand when using them.
The Backing paper is magnolia 
I used a inkylicious Dusting brush on the background (not very well I might add lol) then added some liquid pearl dots around her and a splatter of glitter 
the flowers are a combo of Mulberry Crafts and my stash which I then added some crackle paint picket fence for that shabby chic look.
I ran a peace of DP though a crimper and then added more picket fence 
I also added picket fence around the image and the corners 
The lace and bead trims are from my stash
The pin I made my self
The green foliage is a punch
Not sure if you can really see but I also did a smocking stitch around my card in lilac thread.
So there you go

Baby Magnolia

Hi today I have a fab Magnolia for you and one that I think is sooo cute

I coloured the image with Distress inks and they but it out with my new Cherry Lynne Die and I love it, it is very easy to use to I used the same die for the matting and the Dotty DP is from my Scrap box with one of the new  6 x 6 new release Maggie paper but to be honest it was a bit of a waste as you cant see it lol.
the heart is also a cherry Lynne die, the pins I made myself and the flowers are a mix of mulberry crafts and my stash. The lilac tulle bow is from Crafts u love
I am getting better at the Distress colouring I bought a set of zip water colour pens using the fine tip and the meduim tip helped so hopefully it looks better although I still need to get the hair right as not sure what colour's this little babes is lol.

That extra special project Tilda

This is one of my fav tilda projects I have made for a while I really enjoyed making it

I hope you like it to 

Isnt she just adorable I love this stamp one of my new fav, I think but will have see when I have inked up the others lol.  I made this card from a 12x12 white card stock and matted with all magnolia papers that I then edged with distress inks. I used a Martha Stewart all around the page punches. The flowers are from Mulberry Crafts, the ribbon and butterfly are from my stash and the little pink charm gem is from Hobby craft.

The image I coloured with copics and prisma pencils and then glittered the dress and headdress it is such a shame that the pic doesnt show of the bling.  this is the wrap I made and attatched to the card so you can tie it closed. I used spellbinders labels 4 to cut out the image.

Card unwrapped

This is the inside of the card I used the punch around the page to put a panel in for sentiment or to write on 
I am sorry the pics on this card just dont do it justice. I had fab fun making it and might even do another one lol using a different boarder punch

Flutterby tilda

Hi today ~I am showing a image coloured in teal, which I showed on my blog I wanted to practice big time on my colouring especially doing folds on cloths and I hope I have finally nailed it.

I enjoyed every minute of making this card and I worked really hard on getting my folds right. I coloured the image with Copics and the DP is also from the latest collection but the  6x6 papers love them, I distressed all the edges and added some Mr Holtz burlap ink to the edges, the lace is from my stash the, dies are magnolia, tag and dragon flyand Whimsy stamps heart and corners. The pin I made my self started doing that now love it. might do a little tut on it. Around the image I added a string of pearls from my stash.
Then some matching pearls and flowers to finish I so hope you like my colouring of my folds and the card, oh yes nearly forgot my new die from Marianne Dies lastest release.
so there you go if you like leave me some love all comments gratefully received.

For the banner I used the New whimsy stamps release banner die love the oval shape I threaded some pink bakers twine through it and under the image I added some white gauze. The DP and image have all been stitched and the flowers are from mulberry crafts, sorry if this little lady is to pink for you but I love it. To finish I added some ribbon from my stash.
