Time for Some Halloween Fun!

Hi everyone!  Audrey from the Inspiration Team here with you today to share my newest creation using one of the amazing stamps available at Treasured Times Rubber Stamps.   Since we are fast approaching Halloween, I decided to use one of the many awesome Halloween stamps from Treasured Times Rubber Stamps.  I have chosen Booh Witch from artist Erica Nicomedi.

I absolutely adore this image and she was so much fun to color.  Image is colored with Copics after being stamped on Cryogen White paper using Memento black ink to stamp image.  

I decided to go with a "witchy-green" skin tone for this image and I think it turned out pretty cool - I hope you do too!  Colors used for skin are YG97, YG95, YG93 and YG91.  I added V01 for cheeks.

Witches hair is V06, V04 and V01.

Hat and outfit are W9, W7, W5 and W3.  I also colored spider necklace with W7 and W5 and then added some clear Sakura pen so that it showed up against her outfit of the same colors.  Patches on outfit and hat done with YR18, YR16, YR14, V09, V17, V15 and YG17, YG13 and YG03.  Oranges and green combo also used for letters as well as V06, V04 and C7, C5.

Her broom stick handle is done with E15, YR24 and YR21.  I added BG90 for the hightlights behind her and C4 and C2 under the base of the image.  I sure hope you like how the coloring turned out!

I chose Doodlebug Designs DP and CS from Bazzill, Coredinations and CTMH.  I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the spider webs, which I think go great with the image and I found this awesome spider web ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I cut image with Taylored Expressions dies, and found this great dimensional and textured pumpkin sticker from Jolee's Boutique that I think adds a great finishing touch.
 I sure do hope you like it!!

Lillie Mae Bird Keeper

Hello Friends, Melanie here from the Inspirational Design Team. Today I have a lovely card made using a stamp from the amazing "Lillie Mae" Stamp line. The stamp name is "Bird Keeper" and you can simply visit the Treasured Times store to purchase this stamp. It is available in both Red Rubber and Clear.

 I had a lot of fun creating the handmade flowers for this card. I used many brands of dies including Cuttle Bug, Marianne, Cherry Lynn, as well as Spellbinders.
 I also used the "Bow it All" By Zutter to make this double bow using organza ribbon.
 I love this large flower and how it turned out.
Copic Markers Used:
E000,E00,E04,E11,E21 - for skin
E21,E23,E27,E30,E31,E33,E35,&E37 for hair and wood

Hi everyone!  Audrey from the Inspiration Team here with you today to share my newest creation using one of the amazing stamps available at Treasured Times Rubber Stamps.  This is Peaceful Thoughts from artist Mi Ran Jung.

I absolutely adore this image and she was so much fun to color.  Image is colored with Copics after being stamped on Cryogen White paper using Memento black ink to stamp image.  

I used a different combo for hair - YR000, YR02, YR04, YR07 and E15 - as I enjoy experimenting with different color schemes.  I really like this color combo and I think it suits the image nicely - I hope you think so too.

For her jumper, I have used one of my favorite teal combos - BG78, BG75, BG49, BG57 and BG53.  I also added a wee bit of BG13 as my BG53 needed refilled and was a bit streaky.  I think BG13 added a nice touch.

Her bows are done with RV99, RV69 and RV66 and I added a wee bit of Shinhan marker P85, which is a nice bridge between RV69 and RV66.

Her shirt is done in yellows YR24 and Y35 and then I added E33 for the darker areas and blended it out a bunch.

Grass I my standard grass color - G99, YG67, YG63 and YG03.  I added E34, E53 and W4 to color the pebbles in the grass.

Dove is colored with W4, W2 and W0 and then blended out to make it look white and not dirty.  Talons and beak are YR24.

Stump she is sitting on is E47, E44, E43 and E42.  Highlights and shadows done with E43 and E42.

I chose Doodlebug Designs DP and CS from Bazzill.  Background die is from Sue Wilson and image is cut with Nesties.  I chose flowers from my stash - went with oranges to give it that Autumn feel.  Sentiment is from Mark's Finest Paper and is also cut with Sue Wilson die.

 I sure do hope you like it!!

Pansie In A Tea cup

Morning everyone, It is Tracy here. 
I wanted to share my latest card with you today. I have used the beautiful Pansie in a tea cup by  Tracey-Lynn Miller which can be purchased here
This stamp is truly beautiful and so versatile...and brilliant to colour. 

I went for a slight vintage feel with this and coloured it using my Spectrum Noir Pens 
I don't think you need to add much to the card with this stamp, so i just added some cheesecloth, die cut corners and some distress inks.
