Dancing Penguin - Colour Crazy Challenge for 28th of September, 2018

Over at Colour Crazy Challenge it is ANYTHING GOES, as usual!

This week, we are very kindly sponsored by "Fred She Said"!

I have used Dancing Penguin to make my card:

I digitally printed the stamp on X-Press It Blending card, then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut it out.
I then coloured with the following Copics Markers:
  • black of penguin - C5, C7, C9, C10
  • white of penguin - C00, C0, C1, colourless blender
  • feet and beak of penguin - YR12, YR14, YR18
  • white of hat - C00, C0, C1, colourless blender, clear Wink of Stella
  • red of hat - R32, R35, R37
  • bell - Y23, Y26, Y28, clear Wink of Stella
  • snow - C00, C0, C1, BV0000, colourless blender, clear Wink of Stella
  • background - B0000, B000, B00

I embossed a white square card from Envelope Solutions with a snowflake embossing folder that was a freebie from Quick Cards.
Then I adhered the coloured image to the card.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:

Season's Tweetings - The Merry Christmas Challenge for September 2018

Hi Everyone!
This is the first time that I am posting as part of The Merry Christmas Challenge blog!
It is great that I get to use all my Christmas crafty items at least once a month!
Your projects can be cards, tags, scrapbook layouts, wreaths or other Christmas projects.

So here is my latest Christmas card:

I have used Chickadee in Barberry from the lovely Marcella at Power Poppy. I have digitally printed the stamp on to X-Press It Blending Card and then used my Silhouette Cameo to fussy cut it.
I have used the following Copics:
  • Chickadee - E40, E43, E23, E37, W1, W3, W5, W7, Copic multiliner, pitch black Spica pen, white gel pen
  • Berries - R14, R17
  • Leaves - YG91, G82, YG99
  • Branches - E74, E77
  • Snow - C1, BV000, colourless blender, clear Spica pen
  • Background - BG000, BG02

Here is a close up of the colouring:

I have adhered the coloured Chickadee to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.
The sentiment and musical notes are from Tweet Tidings again from Power Poppy. I stamped them using Rich Cocoa Memento ink and my MISTI!

Of course, I need to give a shout out to the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder. Also a shout out to Amy Shulke at Vanilla Arts - her Red Bird class is awesome!
