An afternoon colouring

I love colouring in and thought I'd have a go with a few Sugar Nellie digi stamps that I have had for a while.
I have used my Spectrum Noir alcohol pens from Crafter's Companion which I find so easy to olour with and they blend fantasically.

The little girl on the first card is called Hope and she looks so pensive she is my favourite of the 3.

The backing paper is from some free papers that came with a magazine, the purple backing is Core'dinations, the butterflies are from Craftwork Cards and the rose is of of course a Wild Orchid one

Next is Melissa, I have done this card for my Mother-in-Law's birthday card.

The backing is printed on Centura Pearl and printed from the SWALK 2 cd. Once again I have used Core'dinations to mat her onto and flowers from Wild Orchid. I've tried to match the pink to the colour of the flower she is carrying.

The sentiment is again taken from the SWALK 2 cd and matted onto a circle cut using my silhouette and then onto the pink Core'dinations.

And last but not least is poor little Nathan - he just looks as though any minute now he is going to burst into tears.

I have used papers from the same freebies as before, Core'dinations card stock, ribbon from my stash and CraftWork Cards card candi.

There is one more little girl to follow... Sybil, she is all coloured in but I have yet to play with her and make her into a card.

Hope you like my work and I would appreciate any feedback good or bad

Guardian Angel

Good afternoon, I really need to get on top of this blogging thing. Promised myself was going to blog at least once a week but time just seems to fly and before i know it another week has passed
Spent Saturday evening sorting out all my lovely Spectrum Noir pens into colour groups and organised a colour chart so yesterday when we got back from a lovely lunch I decided I was going to forget about everything else and have a play.

The stamp is a sugar Nellie Gorjuss one and the doily and flowers are from wild orchid. I've used some  backing papers from POlkadoodles and craftwork cards and one of their sentiments. The wings are glittered although it doesn't show up that well on the piccie.

Hope you like
