Oak & Olives

Hi there,

I'm trying to catch up after vacation last week. We went to Hawaii on a cruise.  We didn't get to Hilo due to the volcano. We were all disappointed but understood.

Anyway, today I'm sharing something I colored yesterday.  It an image from Powerpoppy called Olive & Oak I also own the stamp set so I used it.  I stamped it on X-press It paper with Memento London Fog Ink.  I am a member of Vanilla Arts monthly Patreon color along classes. Have you heard of Amy?  I stumbled on her on Instagram and I love her style of teaching Copics!!! I have learned so much! We incorporate Prismacolor Premier colored pencils with Copics! Just go to VanillaArts.com to find Amy.

Happy coloring!

Birthday Cupcake

Hi there,

Thought I'd share a card I made for a granddaughter for her birthday.  She's 26 today! This is a digital stamp so you can make it as large as you want. I made it to fit on an A2 size card so its about 3 1/2 X 5 I think.  You can find this image at VanillaArts.com. You purchase the image and she gives you the color map and you can watch her speed color the image on her Utube channel.  I just love this image. I will be coloring it up again and again for birthdays!  Give this one a try!

Happy coloring!

Hi there,

I'm trying to get some Valentine cards colored up.  This stamp I've had in my stash its a Unity stamp called Valentina Girl. You can find it HERE . They are fun to color and practice skin, hair and of course clothing.  I like to use my airbrush on the sky and grass. Give them a try!

Made You A Present

Hi there,

I haven't made a lot of Christmas cards this year but I made a few to send to the Grandkids. This one is from Whimsy Stamps called Grumpy Holidays .  Have you tried these stamps yet?  They are so fun to color!  I thought this one with the dog on it would be good for a boy.
