Panda Get Well

Thought I would turn this little Panda Get Well set into a Birthday set for a moment! It is easy to do with a couple of the pandas actually, like this little one hanging on for his life (not in any real danger tho, he'll be ok, heheh) from a broken bamboo branch! I used the wonderful Panda Get Well NoFuss Masks to mask off the image so that I could sponge on the Distress Oxide Inks for the background.  The grasses were also sponged on using a stencil that is COMING SOON to Whimsy Stamps! So this is also a SNEAK PEEK at a new product that will soon be available!
 I stamped the bamboo portion of the image several times to create a more bushy appearance and fussy cut them and arranged them on the card to make it look like it was emerging from the side of the card.  I coloured the little panda and bamboo with Copic markers.

Dino Mighties

This was a hoot to create - I love the film strip die, it really helps when using multiple images on a card, to tell a story.  I guess the answer to everything - is cake - as these dino's suggest! heheh, well, if not the answer, a delicious cake certainly gives one a moment of pleasurable distraction!
I wanted to have two balloons in the center panel that were zoomed in on, so I hand drew those (if you look closely you will see wobbly lines, heheh). 
All the images were coloured with Copics.

Donkey Love

What a hoot to colour up this scene for the donkey in the bath tub! hehe This went to one of my daughters for her birthday and she loved it! 
I drew the bathroom scene around the image after I masked it up with my own hand made mask.  I used a very light grey Copic to lightly draw where I wanted all the details to be - the baseboard, curtain, towel rack and subway tile.  I used a straight edge for the subway tile, but you'd never know that I did... I'm not a straight line kind of gal, so even with a straight edge, my lines are a bit wobbly - oh well, such is the nature of hand drawing! Once everything had a place to go - towels, curtain, tile, baseboard and bubbles, I started filling them in with colour using Copic markers. After all the drawing and filling in with colour, I went over the bubbles using a Wink Of Stella pen.  The sparkle would only show in a photo if I turned the paper at an angle, as you see below. I used a white paint pen to add a few highlights in the bubbles.

Piggies Crushed It!

One of my favourite scenes to colour are blue skies with puffy clouds.  It just make me happy! I love looking at them in real life, as well as the challenge of colouring them! What's great is that there are no incorrect shapes - heheh - so you can let your imagination loose. The key is to make all the transitions from one shade to another as smooth and as blended as possible. I used only Copic markers on this card, and for the blue sky, I used the fatter, chisel nib.  I find it makes a seamless blend compared to the pointed flexible nib at the other end, which can tend to make lines of demarcation.  
For the blue sky, I used B02, B01, B00, B000, and B0000. 
For the clouds, used BG70, RV0000 and B0000
Piggie was RV10, R81, RV63, RV93 and RV95
Balloon was blender pen, RV02, 04, 55, 66
Hat was Y02, YG01, 03, G14, YG45
I added the hat later by fussy cutting and pasting it on.  :-)

Doggie Fun Times

What would it sound like if you tried to say"Happy Birthday" while you had a mouthful of tennis balls? Maybe something like, "Fwappy Mwrffday"! heheh
Thanks to Sandy Allnock for the background idea on one of her many Copic colouring courses.  I modified it a bit by adding evergreen trees. 
I used Copics on the background, and a combination of Copics and some coloured pencil on the dog.  
It's always fun to play with lighting, and in this case, using some back lighting so that it looks glowy around the edges of the character, and darkest in the middle.

Unicorn Daydreams

Hi everyone! This card features a digital unicorn from Whimsy, that I printed and coloured with a combination of Copics (that went on first) followed by some coloured pencil on top.  The forest background was inspired by Sandy Allnock and her classes, which I have been doing!  Highly recommend her classes if you are unsure how to create a background for your images.  She really helps me get some great ideas!
Once I had coloured everything I added the little stardust bits with a white acrylic paint pen.  Then all I had to do was die cut the word "Enchanted" and glue it on.

Gnome Warm Wishes

It's never too early to start again! Here is one that really didn't take much time at all. I striped the background paper with the Brushed Stripes red rubber cling stamp and some Color Box ink.  The image was colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I stamped the sentiment in the same ink as the stripes and doodled a random frame around it to add a touch more detail.  C'est tout!

Birthday Cool

This card was for a winter birthday - we still have a lot of snow and very cold temps in my neck of the woods! I had fun making this winter scene using some evergreen tree dies, some Oxide inks blended on the background sky, and some spattered snow using a white opaque paint.  I gave it some extra details by using the Slimline Scenic Window die set. I like how it has the subtle window cut outs with a scalloped line to show a little bit of unexpected texture and interest to the card.  The clouds and main image were coloured with Copic markers.  I fussy cut the snowman and pasted him onto the card after everything else was done.
