Alyce and Lila Bear

I had fun coloring this cute image commissioned by Linda L. Shannon-Miller with YamPuff at DeviantArt as a gift to Alyce Keegan.  You can see all kinds of creations used with this image as well as download the digital art at the Kit and Clowder Facebook group.

For this one, I used the May 2015 Create and Learn marker class for the background.  You can still get the instructions on the ice wall as a bundle at Kit and Clowder.  I added a crown to the girl and antlers to Lila Bear to create the scene.

As a side note, I have to say, the ice wall was a real challenge for me.  But I'm proud of how this turned out!

Copics Used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Ice Wall:  B97, B95, B93, B91
Lila:  C3, C1, BG02, R02, E43, E41
Snow: C3, C1, C0, B91
Dress:  BG09, BG07, BG05, BG02, BG01 BG000
Crown:  Y28, BR21
Hair:  E43, E42, E41, Y000

 This is a second coloring.  She is sitting on a background of flowers.  I thought it matched her dress quite nicely.  I wish I could tell you the color for her, but I forgot to take a picture of the colors!  I hope you'll enjoy her just the same.

Here is a close up.

Comic Book Fun

So excited to finally show my Comic Strip with Time-4-A-Cuppa bundle from Scrappers Delights!  You can get the comic book template for free by following the instructions in the February 2016 Comic Book Challenge at the Scrappers Delights Facebook page.

I used Photoshop Elements to create the scene.  The comic template is the main layer.  I then added images in .png format into different layers to build up the scene.  If the layers overlapped, I picked the layer of that image and erased the part that I didn't want to show!

Then I used masking to color the background with distress inks!

Check out the Scrappers Delights Facebook page for more comic book inspiration!

Nutcracker Suite Tags

We took our tree down today and pulled these cute tags off the Christmas tree.  I made these tags with images from Scrappers Delights.  Since, I haven't posted them yet, I wanted to make sure to get them on the blog. I love how they turned out, and I'm really sad that we had to pull them off.  I'm going to put them in my crafty room so I can still see them!
