Bubbles Bath-Lacy Sunshine

Hello my crafty blog friends!  Today's post is for the Lacy Sunshine's Bubble's Sticky Wings which is in the Lacy Sunshine facebook group.  I used the image Bubbles Bath found at Heather Valentin's shop at:  http://lacysunshine.weebly.com/ under the Bubble Sticky Wings grouping of images.  She's such a cutie having her little bath in a daffodil which is perfect for spring.  I used Copics to color her, Skin is E000, E01, E04, and E11, eyes are B06 and B69.  Hair is YR21, YR24, YR27 and E19, The flower is Y17, Y38 and YR 16.  I used some K and Company daffodil stickers and some cheesecloth for her background. I used Pebbles chalks for the background sky and deckle edge scissors to trim her up.  Hope you like!  Any and all comments are welcome and appreciated!

Happy Crafting!
Hugs,
Helen

Boudoir Betty Collection

Hello my blogging friends today's special post is for the Betty's Boudoir Series 1 challenge here at:
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.849574975059892&type=1
 in the SimplyB Facebook fan page.  This is a fun group to belong to where you can share your artwork from simplybstamps.net website.  Just copy and past the link to be taken there.  This was such a fun collection to color and make cards with.  I did some airbrushing for several of the backgrounds and tried to tie in a color theme as I created each card with the image I colored.  I used copics with a wide variety of colors and skin combination colors.  Please let me know if you would like me to share my recipes and let me know which image or if you want all of them. All of these images are from the Betty Boudoir Series 1 collection.  The first card  is All Polished Up Betty she's polishing those nails, but I thought the color splats would be a fun way to showcase this cute little gal.  The second creation is Bubble Bath Betty enjoying her luxurious candle light bubble bath.  The third card is Morning Mess Betty, I tried to make the sentiment look like it had coffee stains similar to the background paper I chose.  The fourth card is Perfume Betty giving herself a spritz of her favorite scent, if you look closely I added a little shimmer spray from her perfume bottle.  The fifth card is Powder Puff Betty, what color says pamper me better than purple? :)  The sixth and final card in this series is Shoe Obsession Betty, I gave her some fishnet stockings to add some pizzazz to her legs.  I hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather this weekend!  Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
Hugs,
Helen

Sweet things

I created this little cutie for the Simply Challenged Challenge over at: http://simplychallengedchallenges.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/challenge-march-10th.html  It's for anything polka dots.  Although the dots on the image do not count as part of the piece, I used a polka dot ribbon with polka dot heart stickers to tie in the theme.  I had to add dots to the dress, just added a nice touch.  I colored this cutie with Copics.  I used an Anna Griffin gold frame and some random ribbon and hearts stickers.  Until next time, happy crafting!

Treasure Chest Sheri

Last, but not least is Treasure Chest Shari.  As much fun as I had creating the other two, this one was my favorite because I got to use some different media.  I used Copics for the coloring so please let me know if you want to know my color scheme for this one.  I used "A Beautiful World" paper for the map background, parchment card stock, and cork for the water by DCWV.  I drew and cut out the waves myself.  I also used some fun stickers from Paper Studio for her bags of  booty and stickles gold glitter in the sand.  I tried to tie all three of these lovelies together by giving them each a pirate sword.  Well I hope you've enjoyed this collection as much as I've enjoyed coloring and creating these beauties.  Thanks for stopping by and leaving some comments.  Always appreciate the visits!

Rum Pirate Corinne

This is the second of three images I am entering the in the SimplyB Pirate Wenches challenge.  This is Rum Pirate Corinne and the theme was to use twine.  I tried to lace the twine around the image to look like it was tied onto her then added some barrels and a cute little brad.  This too was colored with Copics, I used a lot of the same colors that Cannon Pirate Betty was colored in except for the hair which I used Y32, YR23, 24 and 27.  I used YG25, 17 and G28 on the eyes.  It was a lot of fun choosing papers for this one, I used Parchment for the card stock, Paper Studio "A Beautiful World" for the overall background and Recollections Espresso for burlap looking paper to offset it.  Hope you enjoy the second of my three images.  Thanks once again for stopping by and for your comments.
Hugs,
Helen

Pirate Cannon Betty

This blog post is one of three for the Pirate Wenches challenge over at:   http://simplybettystamps.blogspot.com/2014/03/fan-page-challenge.html
If you want to join in on the fun you can find these great images at Simplybstamps.net.  The first of three is Pirate Cannon Betty who is supposed to have a skull theme so I added the skull flag and a little blingy skull for fun.  I used my Copics for coloring the image E000, E01, E04, and E11 for the skin, E71, E74, E77 and V99 for the hair, B37 and 39 for the blues and R29 and 39 for the reds.  I used stickles for the glittered up portions of the flag and gold for the wick.  All comments are welcome and appreciated. :)
