The Queen

Happy Family Day to all my Canadian friends!

I spent the day playing with The Queen by Saturated Canary.  I've had this image forever (possibly years?) but have never given her a shot before.

Unfortunately just as I was finishing her I decided to darken up the hair a little and I blobbed!  I managed to fix it but I stuck my hand in it and smudged it elsewhere!  I have tried my blender pen many times over, but that black smudge just isn't moving :(

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 21, 11, 13, 04, R20
Hair: black, BV29, 25, 23, 00
Crown: Y32, 35, 38, 28
Dress: B99, 29, 26, 23, 21; RV99, R89, 59, 56, 82; C09, 07, 05, 01

Annual comparison

Hi friends!
Each February I colour up the same image to see how much I've improved over the year.  Personally, I find this image by Saturated Canary to be the most difficult one I know.  Lots of folds...and straight hair can be the most difficult to add depth to.

Thanks to awesome lessons at Kit and Clowder and video tutorials from Simply B on YouTube, I learned sooooo much this year!

Unfortunately I can't find the original from 2013 to take a better picture now that I have an ottlite. But here's a closer view:


and tonight.....

Thanks so much for looking!

Happy Birthday Rio!!!!

Happy Birthday Rio!!!

I remember 17 as my happiest year.  I was old enough that I had a little bit of freedom to have fun with my friends without the constant watchful eye of our parents, but young enough that all of life's possibilities remained an option.

I remember it was a hard time too.  So much pressure to decide what you want to do with your life, what courses to take to get into a certain school to get your desired career.  Just remember, nothing is set in stone.  Follow your heart to the goals you desire, but if along the way you change your mind - that's ok too!!!  Do what makes you happy and the rest will fall in place.

I hope you're having a wonderful day and know your mom has done a lot to make it special.  All the best, my dear!

For those of you who've stumbled on this post, Betty Roberts, owner and designer of Simply B Stamps, designed this image for her daughter's bday.  Then she organized an amazing blog hop where we all posted our creations using it!  Please hop along - there are some seriously amazing creations!!!

Slinky Tart - Culinary Claire 2.0

Culinary Claire was one of my first The Stamping Chef images.  It was the one I actually used when I tried out for the DT!  Now that Tamara is rebranding as Slinky Tart she has drawn us another Culinary Claire 2.0.

If you haven't checked out Slinky Tart - you MUST.  They're unlike anything out there.  For anyone who likes images with a little more skin and sass - these are for you!

Copics used:
Skin - E000, 00, 21, 11, 13, 04 R20
Hair - E59, 57, 55, 51
Red: R24, 35, 46, 59
Blues: BG52, 55
I used my Silhouette to create a step card, and all papers/embellies are from Carta Bella.

 The other DT lades came up with some smokin' hot makes as well - check them out on the Blog.  Check back often 'cause Tamara has more Slinkies coming!!!
