30 Day Coloring Challenge #4: Day 21 & 22


Hello Everyone! Yesterday was so nice. The weather for here was so sunny and warm for this time of year. I did finish coloring the image from day 21 and made a card yesterday. But I had to run the boys to the orthodontist and then take Apollo for his book club and never managed to write my post for yesterday. So I combining yesterday with today’s post.

day21aSo I almost cried when my Copic spit up on my paper. Sometimes if the markers are overfilled or from shipping they might needing to be decompressed (take both caps off for a second), they will all of the sudden push out a large amount of ink.  Well while I was coloring her tights, my marker put out a bunch of ink. Let’s say that it is great to know that I was the only one in my craft room because I didn’t say nice things. To add to the pain, I couldn’t find more copic paper to reprint the image to start over. So I decided to make a teaching moment of it – what to do with mistakes.

day21bSo I added stickers and I can honestly say if it happened up higher near her head, I wouldn’t mind but I did not like the cover-up on the chair. But I pushed on and mounted it on some coordinating cardstock and mounted that on some embossed cardstock in hopes to distract the eye from the hearts. I also said I would reveal the quote I chose for the inside of the card and here it is:

day21cNow for today, I chose another Mayzy Art image. Isn’t she cute with her little cupcake?

day22aI started with her skin and hair but I have to admit, I knew I wanted her skirt to be a jean skirt before I even started coloring. I love when I know the colors I want to use right away. Love it!

day22bI haven’t finished her but will get back to her tomorrow and make a card for her.

Happy coloring and have a great weekend!


30-Day Coloring Challenge: Day 9 – Spring blessings


Hello! I can’t believe I managed to fit coloring in today.  I am really happy I did and each day, I know this will become a habit that will really take me to the next level of crafting. Day 9 – check!

day9aThis is a digital image from A Day For Daisies stamps. They have the most whimsical stamps that are just flat out dreamy to color.  This one I have been wanting to color and never got around to it. My  color palette was inspired by a paper pad from the dollar bin at Target.

day9bWhenever I have pretty paper that I use with dies or my Silhouette, I take the scraps and punch a bunch of butterflies, hearts and little flowers and put them in little bags. The butterflies came in handy for this card. I added some Queen&Co pearls to the top of the butterflies for more shine.

Definitely will be making another one of these.

Happy coloring! See you tomorrow!
