Happy Birthday & Hello Sunshine from AnnaLee

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm back to share the adorable AnnaLee from the Darling Divas release at High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  I have actually coloured this cutie twice both a little different.

The 1st card is all about the pinks....

AnnaLee1LoraWMLately I have been playing around with doing different types of grass.  Grass has always been one of those things I find very difficult to do...so I will continue my quest to practice.  I used some really old Spellbinder dies that have been calling my name from the cupboard forever lol.  I made all the little gumdrops with Nuvo Drops...gosh I love being able to make my own little drops, that's another thing that will still take more practice but practice makes perfect right.

Copics for Happy Birthday AnnaLee....

Hair - E35, E31, E30 & YR31

Skin - E000, E00, E11 with Pink Prisma for cheeks

Blouse & Shoes - R85, R83, R81

The 2nd card is more about the blue turquoise theme....

AnnaLee2LorawmThe background on this card has a bit of a different pattern for the grass.  I also played around with a scallop die cut piece of paper and Memento Summer Sky ink to makes some clouds.  The flowers are a die cut from Lawn Fawn.  The little gumdrops are made with Nuvo Drops again.

An apple just for you!

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm sharing Apple from the new Darling Divas release from High Hopes.  I prefer to work with bright colours when I get the chance to colour but I really wanted to use some patterned paper from my stash and it was a little bland.  So I went for the orange and yellow to help spruce up the look of the paper.  The die is an oldie from my stash.

Birthday Wishes from Kovu

I finally had the chance to do some colouring and boy oh boy did it feel great to get back at it.  This cutie is called Kovu's Birthday from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  I seem to rarely get the opportunity to use blue when I'm creating a card.  I don't think blue is one of my go to colour choices but I sure do like how this little cutie turned out....I think I will be picking blues a little more often now.

KovusbirthdaylorawmI coloured this one up with Prisma pencils & the background blues I created with Memento Summer Sky and a finger dauber.  I used Novu Drops to make all the pearls and let overnight.  The sentiment is also from High Hopes and is called "Birthday Wishes".  It's hard to see in the picture but i added some Glossy Accents to Kovu's nose and the cherry on the cupcake.

Just a note if you are US or International you can grab these images over on the High Hopes Website.  Kovu's Birthday is HERE & Birthday Wishes is HERE

Wishing you a wonderful day filled with happiness & creativity!
