Alice Chibi

It has been a long time since I have coloured something for myself, just for the purpose of relaxing and zoning out. Most of my colouring now days is for my design team positions and for orders, both of which I LOVE because it challenges me, but every now and then I just want to colour something just to take my mind off things and chill out. That was the case is with this piece, Alice from "Alice in Wonderland" in chibi style. This is from StarStampz Etsy store. I have been asked a few times in various posts on Facebook for my Copic colours, so here they are:

Skin: E00, E00, E11, E21 and R20 (blush)
Eyes: B000, B00, B01 and B02

MiC July challenge entry

This month over at Make it Crafty they have a new challenge... Cas-challenge-shaker-cards! CAS is my style on a regular basis and I used to make lots of shaker boxers on my scrapbook in layouts when they were popular years ago! I knew what I wanted to do straight away for this challenge but boy I had forgotten the tricks I had to making shaker boxes! My first attempt was a miserable failure. My second attempt looked fantastic on its beautiful Prima flower paper and I had lovely flower sequins in multiple sizes and colours. It really looked gorgeous...until I put glitter in it which got stuck the the acetate so badly that you couldn't see all the pretty shaped sequins. So for my third attempt I stuck with heart sequins alone and changed the entire look of what I had planned! Maybe it's for the better, I don't know. But I love the final look anyway. Image is Jacinta sitting dreaming.

AuroraWings Top Three for June 2015

AuroraWings as you know is one of my favourite stamp store and each month in the Stamps By Aurora Wings Facebook group, Mitzi and her team hold a competition. What I love most about her competitions is that most times, you can use projects already made, no need to make a new one if you don't have time. June's theme was anything goes and I entered three cards I had previously made. I was so honoured to make top 3 for one of them. Below you can see my entries...
