Some more colouring

Still working on light sources..quite pleased with the second image, decided not to use these on projects, I'm putting them in my colour journal to remind me of colours that work together.

Blue buttons birthday at Cooking it up

Cooking it up with Katie is wanting you to try a new recipe this fortnight. We are after Blue, buttons and birthday themed cards. Be sure to check out the other DT creations too.
My project was a tad frustrating, I'm wanting to improve my colouring and I've enrolled in some online courses (see the blinkie on the left side bar) and the class I'm taking was about folds, pleats and working with the light sources (something I fail to do often)
I've realised I've been playing it safe with colouring, too light, no contrast etc so expect some changes in upcoming colouring.

I'm also playing with:-
Paper take weekly Anything Goes
Catch the Bug Anything Goes
Colour me creative classroomnavy/blues

Busting out the rubber stamps Challenge

This week at the Card Makin Mamas we are busting out the rubber stamps.  Getting back to what initially inspired us with stamping.. yes ..the old fashioned way!    I must admit I still use rubber stamps quite a bit, of course I have my favourite digi stamp companies, but there is something therapeutic about actual stamping.. and often frustrating too!

I have coloured this gorguss girl with copics and tried my hand at adding highlights in the hair with prisma's, this is something im going to keep working at.  I have lots of colouring mediums so I may as well use them.  You never know.. I may even water colour my next project with the Tim Holtz Markers... stay tuned!   I coloured my leaf embellishment and flower with the copic airbrush to make it all blend in.

The sketch for this card is from Designed to Color - June/ July sketch challenge, be sure to go and have a look and play in the challenge over there too.  But most importantly.. link up your creations with us at Card Makin Mama's Challenge blog so we can come and comment on your work.  We are sponsorred by sponsored by Maria Levine, {ippity} from Unity
