Spare Time Creations

.....what is "spare time" you ask? I am not sure I truly know what it means, but I think I found a little of it this past week! ....maybe not "spare" but enough time to dust off my Copic Markers and colour up some images for a little card creating.

I have to be honest, I can't remember when I last coloured just for fun....and I don't know why, I left it so long, it really is therapeutic and good for the soul. So much so, that I am still colouring up a storm and loving every minute of it.

I spent that "spare-time" I found, colouring some of the super gorgeous digital images by Krista Smith - check out her Saturated Canary Shop - I am sure you will love it! If you prefer a little ink and rubber you can also purchase some of Krista's stamps from my friend Sammi's store at Mad for Markers.

It is difficult for me to choose a favourite image from my collection of Digital Stamps but Violet Vintage is certainly one that is at the top of my favourites list - if I was to have one LOL!




Copics Used:
Skin - E000, E01, E11 - Cheeks - R20
Hair/Shoes - E71, E74, E79
Clothing - R81, R83, R85, Y21, Y23, B91, B95,BG93, BG96

This next card I created in readiness for my nieces 21st Birthday in the New Year - it is from the Princess Collection - her name is Rose Red. Challenge #30 at the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog  is all about Fairytales and Princesses and I thought I might enter this simple little creation in that challenge.



and of course she was coloured in pink - my favourite Copic Pinks are R81, R83 and R85 and I have finally had to order refills! - you will notice that these pink colours made an appearance in all the cards I am sharing with you today LOL!!

This little sweetie is called Washi Girl and she was perfect for this card I made for a very special friend. My friend has supported me through "thick and thin" this year....and I am so appreciative on all that she has done. She hears me talking about Washi Tape all the time but I am not particulary sure she knows what it is.....which makes this card very appropriate. I wanted this card to be really simple so little Miss Washi became the focus.




Copics Used:
Skin - E000, E00, E01, E11 - Cheeks - RV42
Hair/Shoes - E21, E25, E27, E29
Top - R81, R83, R85
Pants - B91, B95, B97

My white border was created with the Creative Memories - Border Maker System and I do have to say, that is most definitely my favourite all time tool!!!

The last card I am sharing is called Tourist - I love her hair - I am very envious, I always wanted long hair like that - I so enjoyed colouring it up!



Copics Used:
Skin - E000, E01, E11 - Cheeks - R20
Hair - E21, E27, E29 - and my Dark Sepia - Polychromo Pencil
Top - R81, R83, R85
Skirt - B91, B93, B97

I have coloured up another four Saturated Canary Images already but I probably won't have anymore of that precious "spare-time" until next week to turn them into card creations.

If you are lucky enough to discover "spare-time" over the next few days - I hope you spend it doing something you enjoy and is good for your soul.

Cheers
