Saturated Canary 'Bella'

Good morning everyone,
 
I hope you are all having a lovely week so far!
 
I am sorry I haven’t posted for a while, but even though school has broken up (yippee) I do a big clean this time of the year and every inch of house gets cleaned for top to bottom, including the paintwork, so I have been busy getting that done and out of the way! I am making good progress, but not finished yet (I know I’m mad)!  Phil and I are also going on holiday on Sunday so I am making sure all my DT cards are done. When we get back George will be home for this two weeks R & R, I can’t believe he has been out in Afghanistan now for over 3 months; and can’t wait to see him. I will stop rambling now and get on with sharing my card (lol)!
 

For a change I made a square card and used a gorgeous Saturated Canary stamp called ‘Bella’. It took me a while to colour her up, but she is so worth it. As always I have used Copics and Prisma Pencils to colour her with. The papers are from Raspberry Road  and the lush ribbon is from the Ribbon Girls. The corner dies, which I have added some Frantage to are Nellie Snedden and the Catalina border is a Memory Box die. Everything else is from my crafty stash.

 Copics I used:
Skin: E11, 21, 51, 50, 93
Hair: E57, 55, 53, 51, 50
Top & Socks, Bag & Skates: R85, 83, 81, RV000
Skirt, Socks, Bag & Skates: E43, 42, 41, 40
 
Pencils: Dark Umber, Tuscan Red, Burnt Ochre, Black
 
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me and for your lovely comments you leave me, I really appreciate them.

I have coloured the shells and starfish and then added some glossy accents to them. The lovely butterflies are a Joy die and I’ve added an extra layer to give them some dimension. All the scrumptious embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl, see below for more details.

LOTV 'Bumble Bee Fairy'

Hello my lovelies,
 
I hope you are all well.
 
Sorry I have not been around for a while, and I hate to admit this,  but I have been struggling with the heat. My office at work is like a greenhouse and by the time I get home, I am completely shattered, the prediction is, it is going to get hotter next week, still I only have 3 more days left and then I break up for the summer holidays.
 
I thought I would ink up one of my LOTV stamps which I haven’t coloured for a while and she is called ‘Bumble Bee Fairy’. I have coloured her using Copics and added a few highlights with Prisma Pencils. Unfortunately the photo doesn't show it, but I have added some Stickles called ‘Star Dust’ to her wings to give them a bit of sparkle. The corner is a lovely Joy die and the flowers, ribbon, lace and embellishments are from my stash.
 

Copics I used:
Skin: E31, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E57, E55, E53, E51, E50
Skirt, Flower, Headband: B02, B01, B00, B000, B0000
Top & Shoes: E43, E42, E41, E40
Bee: E57, E55, E50, Y02
 
Pencils: Muted Turquoise, Sienna Brown, Burnt Ochre, Dark Umber, Black.
 
I would like to say a great big warm crafty welcome to my new followers, and thank you for popping in.
 
Have a lovely weekend.
 
Hugs
