4 days off

Hurray, I've finished the (busy) 5 night duties and I'm off for four whole days. Unfortunately, parts of those four days will have to be give over to domestic duties :( , but at least I'm off! I'm going to completely ignore the phone when work ring to ask me to work extra shifts - heck I might even leave it off the hook completely!

I made these a few days ago, just hadn't got around to posting them.

Both images are coloured using (more or less) the same Copic colours and the PP is K&Co, Wild Raspberry. CS is DCWV, from the 'neutral' pad and I've used a scrap of Coredinations embossed with the 'Stylized flower' cuttlebug folder and sanded back. Hydrangeas are by prima, butterfly sticker is by Jolees. Shapes cut with nestabilities on the second card.

Sarah Kay Stamp is 'a Kiss for Chloe'. Copic recipe: Skin E51, E02, R20, Hair - E35, E57, E08, YR21, Y21, y38, Hats - E33, Y21, E50
Jeans - B93, B95, C1, Tshirts - R22, R35, YG03, YG23, Ground - W1, w3, w5, YG23 and copic multi-liner 0.3mm to sketch in gravel and grass tufts.

Sarah Kay Stamp is 'Rosalie's Bicycle' . This young lady is coloured in using the same pens, but I've used BG01, BG10, BG15 for her jeans. The puppy has touches of W3 and W1 to suggest shading and the tyres of the bicycle are also coloured with W3, W5, W9.

They've both got touches of the Copic Spica glittery goodness on them, but it doesnt photograph well, so you'll have to take my word that 'its purty'!

Confused dot com moment - I took the photos at the same time and edited them together, but for some reason, the first card will enlarge when it's clicked, but the second one won't. Bizarre! Does anyone know why?



  1. Lovely cards Alison. Off to see if I have the colours you used for Rosalie on bicycle. LOL. Then I can do some more colouring tee hee to add to my collection. Thanks for your comments much appreciated.

  2. Arrgghh ... I can zoom in on the top one but not the bottom one! You are such a tease Alison!

    Both fab cards .... absolutely love how you colour your images. The flowers on the top one are just gorgeous! Wanted a closer look at the butterfly :( alas ..... you're keeping him to yourself!

  3. Oooh Copic Spica Glittery Goodness - I know whatcha talkin' about now LOL! Lovely cards, your colouring really does rock y'know! Love that little butterfly too (I'm a sucker for butterflies - as well as birds of course!)
