Not Just Cards August 2018 Challenge

Not Just Cards is having a new challenge starting today the 12th of August!
The theme for the August 2018 Challenge is "Anything Goes".
To join in the fun, click on the following link:

I finished colouring these images with Copics a while ago and tucked them away to put them in a photo frame to give to someone special - but I tucked them away so well, that I couldn't find them! But finally I have and I had already bought the photo frame from IKEA, so here is a present to someone special, who just had her birthday.

There is a bit of reflection, but hopefully the close-ups will help.

The three images are from Power Poppy and the colourings are all monthly classes from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

On the left is the September 2017 Markers class and the stamp is Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher.

I love how the pitcher turned out in this one!

In the centre is the February 2017 Markers class and the stamp is Camellias.

The nearly white camellia and the paler pink one, I thought turned out well!

Then finally on the right is the February 2018 Markers class and the stamp is one of my favourites - Hellebores.
I totally love the sentiment that comes with this stamp -
"The inspiration you seek is already within you. Be silent and listen." by Rumi.

I love how the water and stem in the glass turned out - first time I have coloured water and stems in a glass!

I would like to enter this into a few challenges:
Love to Craft Challenge #25 - August Anything Goes
The Flower Challenge #23 - One Layer Cards - I have three!

Go and check out the rest of the Design Team at Not Just Cards.
Thanks for looking!


  1. Oh my goodness, your Copic colouring skills are out of this world!! The person who received this gift must have been so happy, I would love to have that on my wall. Your blending and detailing are so perfect and the colours so beautiful. I don't use Copics (as I can't afford to buy them) but love to see what incredible things people like you do with them. I'm so very glad you shared this with us at The Flower Challenge!!!

    1. Thank you so much Shona for your lovely comment! It is very much appreciated.

  2. Beautiful creation, fabulous coloring! Thank you for sharing with us over at Love To Craft! Hope to see you again!
