Colouring Hydrangeas with Kit & Clowder

Happy Saturday everyone!  I just realized I forgot to put the hydrangeas I coloured from the Kit & Clowder Elements of Nature Class on the blog.  If you follow my blog you know I am taking a few of Alyce's classes. 

They were posted on the facebook page but not the blog... my bad.  I have coloured these with my favourite markers, Copics, following Alyce's lesson.  

I think a touch  of pink might be nice next but I do like the finished results.  What do you think?

Here is a look at the WIP ... flowers are coloured, time to start on the pot.

... and here is the finished colouring.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Feel free to leave a comment.

Lil Hot Mama Scootabug Card

Today is my day to post for Lacy Sunshine using Lil Hot Mama Scootabug by artist Heather Valentin.  What a fun digi stamp this is!  

I also used the Gnome house from the Digi bits sheet, found under the Gnomes of Willow Pines  line for this card.

I must admit to taking a creative twist with theses two images by merging the two together and creating this scene.  I coloured everything with copics, added the googly eyes and  a bow to the caterpillar.  In my stash of "interesting stuff to use on day" were some lightly shaded plastic dots that fit perfectly in Mama's glasses. White highlights were added with a gel pen.

Sweet Flower Gnome Card

Hi everyone!  Today I am sharing a card made using Sweet Flower Gnome by artist Heather Valentin.  

I pictured her in a meadow type setting surrounded by flowers and grass rather than a cultured garden.  All colouring was done with copic markers with the exception of the small white accent dots in the grass.  Those were done with white pen.  Stickles glitter was added to the butterfly on the flower she is holding.  Copic colours used can be found at the bottom of this post.

All papers and embellishments are from my stash box.
