Sarah Kay - Thinking of You

Hello everyone! This is just a short post as I just wanted to share with you my 2nd card for 2009. This sweet image was given to my by my friend Bec about 2mos ago. I was organising my stuffs and stamped images when I saw it and decided to colour and put it onto a card.
I coloured her with my Prismacolor Premier pencils using odourless solvent and blending stumps. I also used my mini clouds decorative scissors for my Choc Chip mat and I also used my Decorative Circles embossing folder (Cuttlebug) on this card.
Here's a closer shot of Sarah Kay..

Thanks for looking everyone. Until next post. God bless us all!

Exciting NEWS! (with a sketch and colour challenge)

Happy New Year everyone! And yes, I'm making it short and sweet-----

I was chosen to be InStyle Stamps Guest Designer for January!! Yay!! What a wonderful way to start the new year. And I thank God for it 'coz I know He's behind all these wonderful things that's happening to us.

This is actually a self-announcement (but not self-proclaimed though, lol!) as Virginia, the very kind owner of InStyle Stamps already gave me the "go-signal". She'll be formally announcing it come next week so make sure to visit the Instyle Stamps blog and to browse on the online shop so you can see the rest of the products they offer.

So, for a starter, I want to present to you one of InStyle stamps' gorgeous girls --ROXY!

Isn't she gorgeous?! With her afro hair and sweet smile - who can resist her? :) I coloured Roxy using my Prismacolor pencils to complement the CC199 color combo challenge over SCS which highlights the use of So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy and Handsome Hunter(I used the colour chart made by one of the SCSers that matches the SU cs and Prismascolor pencils). I used Odourless Solvent and blending stumps with my Prismas and put a bit of Copic spica glitter clear on her earrings, bangles and the outline of her top. (the camera didn't catch the bling, sorry). Here's a closer look at her:

Roxy reminds me of my youngest sister, Carol. She has the same smile like her (and the twinkling eyes as well, lol!).

Here's the list of the stuffs that I used for your reference:

Stamps: Roxy by InStyle Stamps; Paper: SU! Whisper White, So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy, Handsome Hunter, dp unknown; Accessories: Prismacolor Premier pencils, Odourless solvent, blending stumps, Copic Spica glitter pen (clear), Fiskars all a-fleur embossing border punch, pop dots

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!

Sweet n' Sassy for SC208, LSC200

Hello! How are you doing everyone?! It's been awhile since I last posted here. Well, just became quite busy with the Christmas preparation but now I'm slowly getting back on track. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas celebration with your families, friends and relatives.
I have this simple card to share with you which is patterned after the SC208 sketch challenge (and LSC200 as well) over SCS. I've been so way behind the challenges these past few weeks but at least, somehow I was able to make one even if I'm a bit late.
Did I ever tell you that my hubby's Christmas gift to me was a 72-pencils tin Prismacolor Premier?? Yes! He let me ordered it on the 17th of Dec and it arrived the next day! That fast!!! But I wasn't able to used them until I made this card. As I've said I was a bit busy with other stuffs and besides, it's just recently that I had all these wondeful pencils sharpened. here's my card where I used my Prismas along with Odourless solvent:

My image is Sweet n' Sassy by Sugar Nellie which was given to me by Bec, I think almost 2mos ago now. I just made this card very simple so that the focus would be on the image. Isn't she lovely and sweet? I also used my new Fiskars embossing border punch (all a-fleur) which look lovely on this card as well.

So, what do you think?

Thanks for looking and may you have a blessed New Year!!

Hugs to all,
