Truly Scrumptious & My Time to Craft Challenges

Hi! Hope you're all well. Another 2 challenges today and I've made cards for my stock for my craft fair. The first is a sketch for the Truly Scrumptious challenge. I've decided to rotate it as I wanted to use this horizontal image.

So here is Ipodabella- I just love her funky jeans and boots! Click on the photo to see the colouring in detail. I coloured her with watercolour pencils. All the papers are from a Papermania kit, as is the sentiment. I just did some layering with assorted cardstock. Apologies for the photo, I've just realised there's a big sun spot on it!

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Stamping Bella); Watercolour pencils; Paper (Papermania); Assorted cardstock; Sentiment (Papermania)

My second challenge is at My Time to Craft which is another sketch. I was making cards for teenage girls so I decided to go for this cute Penny Black stamp.

So here she is! I coloured her with a mixture of copics and brush markers and highlighted areas of her with Stickles and a white gel pen. I also drew a sparkly frame around her using Stickles (click on photo to see detail). The paper is actually one sheet from DCWV All Dressed Up stack which I've cut down to make the 2 horizontal strips across the card. I added a sentiment layered up on black card and some more of the paper and finished with a flower.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Penny Black); Copics; Brush markers; Paper (DCWV); Assorted cardstock; Sentiment (Pink Petticoat); Nesties; Flowers (Poppicrafts & Lakeland); Button (recycled)

Hope you like them! Hope you have a nice day, thanks for stopping by x
