Kraftin' Kimmie Kolour Along - Tweetie Pies

Hi Friends! 
Today I did a live colour along in the Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Friends facebook group. I had a lot of fun colouring with you guys and it is always great to get input from you all as I create a card live.


I coloured up this super sweet image from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called Tweetie Pies. I created another card using this stamp set a month or so ago that I will link HERE

I coloured her using the following Copic markers

Copics:
Skin - E04, E11, E21, E00, E50, R20
Hair - C10, BV09, C5
Bird - B37, B34, B32, C4
Shirt - V99, V95, V93
Pants - C10, C7, C5
Flower/Scarf - YR04, Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11

To finish off my card, I masked off the coloured image and did some ink blending using Cracked Pistachio and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks. I also added a few irridecent sequins.

I hope you liked my card creation for today! Thanks to all who joined me live while I created.

Until Next time - Stephen

Bellariffic Friday - Succulent Chicks

Hi Friends!
I am here with another Bellariffic Friday post to share with you. This week, I am played around with the Succulent Chicks stamp set from Stamping Bella and created a clean and simple card that anyone can whip up in no time.


I used Copic markers to colour these adorable Chicks and then die cut them out using the coordination Cut It Out dies

Copics
Chicks - YR18, YR16, Y17, Y15, Y13, YR27, YR24
Pots - E18, E19, E17, E15
Succulents - BV02, YG17, YG07, YG03, YG01

Although the stamp set came with a lovely sentiment, I decided to pull a sentiment from the Garden Girl Flower Sentiments stamp set.

To finish off my card, I used a woodgrain background stamp to create my backdrop and matted it on a coordinating card stock. lastly I added a few crystal gems for some extra sparkle and shine.

I hope you enjoyed my card creation for this weeks Bellariffic Friday! Also, be sure to stop by the Stamping Bella blog for more inspiration!

Until next time - Stephen
