Fairy Topper Notebook

I made this cute Fairy topper design  Fairy on Fancy Background No.3 into a notebook cover for my friends little girl.  It’s a full 8.5 x 11 comb bound scribble pad  and I will add her name to the scroll on the front.  Another gorgeous Lyn Simms design for the little fairy lovers  in our lives.

Faery Ink WIP project for a budding hairdresser

I’ve been playing around a lot lately (.. as you may have noticed lol), with various new pens, pencils and paints etc and lots of different artists.  This is just a WIP, there is absolutely no. …no ..NO ..way I could managed a  new project for every spotlight, but I can share my WIP’s, colorings and  showcase the images I have, or want to have in my collection.

Make sure you swing by the  main intro post  and  this of course is Faery Ink…. my Day 1 spotlight guest 🙂

This is one I started playing with last week “Bella Spring Magic“,  obviously things have  been a bit crazy hectic round here..<<INSERT STAGE LAUGH and major understatement HERE.  but I wanted to try out my new Zig Kurelcolor and Chameleon pens sets.  I just recently got the Chameleon Skintone set from their new extended palette and the Kurecolor Hair and muted tones pack… loving  both of these pen sets.

Throw in a little Tim Holtz Ranger Distress, Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust and a wizz over with some white & clear Wink of Stella… and we have a twinkle twinkle fit for a little girl I know in Canada who just became a big sister last month

…. and just happens to be a blonde.  I shall post the finished card later when it is done… 🙂

Funny Story:  Aforementioned young lady also has, or should I say HAD lovely long hair too…. which trust me her mom waited FOREVER for it to grow. The morning of her maternity photo shoot a few months back…. her daughter went in the bathroom and hacked chunks of it out with scissors.

Her reasoning, she “wanted to look pretty for the photoshoot” LOL

Fast fwd a few hours later; so they get home and my friend goes to do something in the kitchen…. next things she knows, her daughter has once again decided to go at her hair. Now this is a kid who has had access to scissors for play and craft for well over a year with no incidents at all…. well not with scissors anyway…. lol…. we shall leave it at that haha.

Let’s just say I consider myself highly fortunate, my son and her daughter were born at the same time…. we were on a pregnant chicks board and that is how we met… .and I have not had to deal with half the things her daughter has got up to.  She’s a wee monkey at times lol.

Anywho, back to the hair, we have come to the conclusion that after having her first “real” haircut a few weeks earlier… she was probably role playing at being a hair dresser.

Its shall grow back…. I’m just waiting to find out what her next escapade will be  LOL.

Thank you Faery Ink for this fabulous image, I think I have the perfect CraftsUprint card base cut file for this one… 🙂

KennyK “Devilish Donna” Birthday Card

kkrubbers


This card features the fabulous “Devilish Donna”,  one of the 3 clear stamp that I got in the mail a week the other week.  Absolutely love these stamps, the quality of the images is top notch ….and for me that is huge because I am a big digital stamp user and used to high res quality images 🙂 Now admittedly it’s a bit of a shock to the system for someone like me, who tends to “go big or go home”  LOL.  Suddenly I am size restricted…and yes I know..size isn’t everything.



But it does take a bit of getting used to for me coloring at a smaller size.  Usually when I print my KennyK’s out they are at least 150-200% bigger than a physical stamp.. heh.. what can I say.  Now the funny thing about this one is,  I colored her by hand then imported her into my graphics program to do the  background and text ….and then  printed her smaller than the original stamp.  Go figure !

No matter how many time I try to photograph this dang card… I just can’t seem to get a clean shot. It has so much going on and metallics, specialty papers… *rolleyes.  So I aplogize for the not so fab quality of the pics on this one…

I have the original stamped and colored version, which is going on another project, hopefully before the end of the month.

And here is the digitally manipulated background and text.

This was printed out on some fab Polysilk Adhesive paper, which is almost impossible to find now.  I have had this paper for.. hmm  at least 13 years.

I have a bunch of fab specialty papers from that time that I just can’t seem to get hold of anymore and even though some of them are available for wholesale, I am not finding them for sale in the US on a retail level  :/
