a tiny card

When we were at my mums over the summerholidays, we had a little "going to big school"-party for one of my sisters daughters. She loves going to the beach and get shells, so it was easy to choose what to make.
Used my new Adorables stamps, with the girl sitting at the beach picking shells.

I used the biggest size nestie to create the cardshape. Actually, I used the shape and made a faux nestie, by drawing around it and then cut it out. The lovely little girl is colored with promarkers.

A little while ago I saw this amazing card on one of the blogs I follow. I think it was on Bev Rochesters blog, but I am not sure. She made a fabulous card using grand nesties. I don't have grand nesties, but I do have a pc, google, and a printer, so I found myself a nice scalloped circle, printed it out in 4 different sizes and made this lovely card:

As you can see, it has a hole in the middle, so you see through to the back/inside of the card!! I found this such a clever idea.

That's the card laying flat.

And that's just the inside.

Tilda is colored with Promarkers and Prismacolors.

Now, I have never colored with copic markers before. I don't even own one. But when we went on holiday this summer to my mums house, I took the opertunity to use hers. I must say, it's a different way of coloring, and my mum only owns a few so there weren't a lot of colors to choose from that were in the same line. But I did try and color it as nice as I could.

Only her top and skirt are colored with copics, the rest is done with Promarkers. I did enjoy coloring with them, so maybe one day I might buy them :)

My sisters Birthdaycard

Eventhough my sisters birthday was on the 22nd of July, I have not posted the card yet that I made for her.

Isn't she lovely!! When I saw this stamp on the Doncaster craftfair, I knew I had to have it :) Colored her with Promarkers and prismacolors. The paper I used is from Laura Ashley and it has a fabric feel to it, it's so awesome!!

Another not so good one

I don't know why that is, but sometimes you make a card, and you have an idea in your head, and it feels really good. But then when you start making it, and see the end result, it's not as good as you had hoped! This is another one that is ok, but not one of my fave!

I am not quite sure where it all went wrong, but on the positive side, I do love how Tilda is colored :) I used Promarkers and prismacolors.
