SBS - Shake your tail feathers!

It's my favourite day of the month!!!  New Boudoir Release over at Simply B Stamps!

If you aren't familiar, Betty has started the cutest and cheekiest (pun intended!) line of Boudoir stamps available both in digis and limited release rubber.  This month had a Feathery burlesque theme.  I just love colouring all that skin!

First up - ME!  Here's Tail Feathers Melissa.  I may be a little biased but she's my fav.  lol

I love that Betty included a woman with a little more curves - this is Madame Frou Frou

Here's the very pretty Feathery Betty

And last but of course NOT least Kick Up Your Heels Corinne

Check out the New Release section of the store for some cute bundles, and to be sure you haven't missed out on some other fantastic new releases!  And of course visit the SBS blog for more inspiration - you won't believe the awesomeness these ladies have come up with!

I've graduated!!!

Does everyone see that pretty new blog badge to the right?  Yay!!!  I finally finished up my Kit and Clowder Skin and Hair class!!!

Here's my before and after ....

Now I have to finish my Clothing Class and start my Animal Class.  Can't wait to see the improvement after that!
Speaking of, next month is my two year mark with my Copics.  I'll again be doing the same image and comparing it side by side with previous years.  Looking forward to it!

Thanks for checking in and come back soon - Simply B Stamps has an AMAZING new release coming, just in time for Valentine's Day!

Happy New Year!

Hello and Happy New Year!
Today I'm posting my last coloured image of 2014.  I'm so happy with how much I improved over 2014.  I'm not one for New Year's "resolutions", but I've decided to concentrate more on my colouring and less on my card making.  Often I find I don't enjoy creating the card as much as I do colouring the card topper.  Not to say I'll stop all together - I have FAR too many supplies for that!  lol.  But I will definitely be shifting my focus.

This is Tammi Buccaneer by Saturated Canary.  She's a freebie from last spring, but I was so intimidated I didn't try her until now.  I'm pretty happy with my first go!

Skin - E00, 11, 13,15, 17
Hair: E71, 77, 79, 49
Dress: BG32, 34, 45, 49, 75, 78
Corset/ruffles: R35, 37, 39, 89
Stockings: 110, C09, 07, 05

I've had two great sources to learn colouring techniques.  The first are the classes at Kit and Clowder. There are so many to choose from and they're very detailed!  The second is the very awesome Betty Roberts of Simply B Stamps.  Check out here YouTube channel here

If you enjoy checking out colour combos please follow and I'll do more.  Thanks for looking and have a Happy and Healthy New Year!
