Lord's Prayer

For the last card that I made today I have used stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Elizabeth Whisson, Alshandra, Lord's Prayer, Christian, scripture, handmade card, Fragrance, Trois Jolies Papillons, Copic, vellum, leafy edged borders, enamel dots

I've stamped the Lord's Prayer Script on white cardstock. I've then stamped the image from Fragrance (also available separately as an image called Wild Rose) in clear ink several times onto vellum and embossed with white embossing powder. I did the same with the butterfly which is from the Trois Jolies Papillons stamp set. I used my Copics to colour on the reverse side of the vellum. The vellum has been diecut using Leafy Edged Borders from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Copic colours used: Y15, Y38, YG23, YG17 and R85.

Lastly I added some enamel dots.

I am entering this card in the Something New, Something Old challenge (ODBDSLC269) at Our Daily Bread Designs. The Lord's Prayer and the Trois Jolies Papillons stamp sets are new for me as is the Leafy Edged Border die I used. The enamel dots I've had sitting in my stash for AGES!

Thanks for looking!

Berry It

Had to get my Copics out today and colour up this gorgeous image from Power Poppy.

Elizabeth Whisson, Alshandra, Berry It, Power Poppy, digi stamp, Copic, berries, handmade card

The image is a digi stamp called Berry It from Power Poppy. I've used the image numerous times, flipping, rotating and erasing parts to make it fit onto other parts of the image. The sentiment is from the same set. It is all printed onto X-Press It blending card and coloured with Copics. The card measures 3.5" x 7.5".

Copic colours used:
Berries: RV91, BV04, BV08, RV99 and white gel pen
Leaves: G21, G24, G28 and BG78
Flowers: RV000, RV02 and BV00 with BV04 in the centres
Background: B60 and B63

I am entering this card in the Stretch Yourself PowerPoppy challenge. I have used a tall format card and the Berry It digi image is new to me. Making tall cards is also new to me.

Thanks for looking.

This card is also for sale in this album on my facebook page.

Stretched Hellebores

Just popping in quickly to share a card I made. I coloured this image up a few days ago using watercolour pencils but only got around to making it into a card today.

Elizabeth Whisson, Power Poppy, Hellebores, watercolour, Alshandra, Mother's Day

The image is a digi called Hellebores from Power Poppy. Power Poppy have a challenge at the moment to "Stretch Yourself", so I've stretched the digi vertically before printing onto watercolour card. The whole card measures 3.5" x 6". I've then used my Scorbug thing to make the pierced dots around the edge (first time I've actually used it on a card even though I've had it for about 3 or so years now!).

The sentiment is also a digi from Power Poppy from the Flowering Branches set. 

You can find all the details about the PowerPoppy Stretch Yourself challenge here. I've stretched the digi, used a tall card format (which is new for me) and used my scorbug for the first time!

Thanks for looking!

Stargazer Lily

I coloured up another Our Daily Bread Designs image, this one is a flower - Stargazer Lily. I decided to go for a nice and bright orange / yellow / green colour scheme.

Our Daily Bread Designs, Elizabeth Whisson, Copics, Stargazer Lily, Boho Blessings, Layered Lacey Squares, Christian Faith Collection, Butterfly, Trois Jolies Papillon

You can buy this stamp as a single image, Stargazer Lily, or as a set, Beauty. I've diecut the main image using ODBD Layered Lacey Squares Dies and inked with Distress Ink Carved Pumpkin while still in the die. It is then popped up on foam tape.

The DP is from ODBD Blooming Garden Collection with the top piece being diecut using ODBD Leafy Edged Borders Dies.

The sentiment is from ODBD Boho Blessings. The butterflies are stamped in Memento Tangelo and Dandelion ink using ODBD Trois Jolies Papillons stamps and diecut using ODBD Trois Papillons Dies.

Please see my You Tube channel, or the video directly here, for a speed colouring video using Copic markers for this image. (For copic marker colours used please see the video.)

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I've enjoyed a nice week and a half off (back to work tomorrow - yay, not!).

I haven't picked up my Copics since I had made the teacher's gifts so I thought it was time to do some colouring and the current challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs, ODBDSLC268, anything goes with ODBD stamps, was a perfect opportunity to colour up some ODBD stamps!

Elizabeth Whisson, Alshandra, Dolphins, Our Daily Bread Designs, Leafy Edged Borders, Hello, Christian Faith Collection, Copic

For my card I have coloured up these gorgeous Our Daily Bread Designs Dolphins. You can buy them just as the picture, Dolphins, or as a set, Under the Sea.

I love dolphins and feel so blessed to live by the ocean where there are quite a few of them around.

I made a quick speed colouring video of my Copic colouring of this image. 
See my You Tube channel or the video directly here.
(For Copic Marker colours used please see the video.)

They have been cut out using ODBD Stitched Ovals dies.

The DP I've used is ODBD Christian Faith Collection and I've coloured over both pieces with Copic marker B02 before diecutting using ODBD Leafy Edged Borders. The edges have been inked with Distress Ink Salty Ocean.

The word has been cut twice using ODBD Hello die and stacked on top of each other to give some height.

Lastly I've added some glossy accents.
