Halloween Lanterns!

Okay, so it's supposed to be "Halloween Apples" but this one is a lantern!  I got this pattern from a wonderful web site that is called "From My Craft Room".  Norma has some really fabulous ideas so check out her blog.

The coloring is in Copics!  The red combo came from a video by Zoe McGrath on "Make It Colourful".  I am really happy with how these red markers blend together.  Check out Zoe's site and be prepared to be amazed.  Her work is outstanding.

The list of colors:
Reds - R35, 37; RV29; E19
Greys - on Tilda they were C00, 1, 3, 5
          - on Edwin I used C7, 5, 3 for the cape edge, C0, 3, 5 for his pants, C3, 5, 7 for his shoes and that stick that he is holding is C1, 3, 5
Hair on both of them is E59, 39, 25, 53
Skin on both is E50, 000, 21 and R30

As always, I would love to hear your comments and if you would like any other details just let me know.  Trick or Treat??!!

Oops, I goofed!

Hi everybody!  I worked on the little Tilda Witch and Pumpkin and posted it and later I was showing to my wonderful guy and I realized I really goofed.  If you look closely you will see that the sleeve on the right is colored as if it is her arm!  So little Witch Tilda has one sleeve on one side and she is sleeveless on the other side.  Sigh!!  I am going to try to fix it but I can't believe it didn't notice in all of that time that I was working on it.  Entered in 4 different challenges also.  Good grief!!

Dress and hat - V17; BV11, 00, 000
Hat band, lace and shoes - C00, 1, 3, 5
Pumpkin - YR02, 04, 18; Y13; E35

Birthday Rainbows

Hi everyone!  I have a new post.  Woo hoo!  I have made this one up for my very best friend and I know that she won't see this before she gets it!! 

There are a lot of details so may be a long post but I want to get everything down that was done to make it.  First of all the front images are from Magnolia Ink and I used the Tilda with ponytail and the log thingy!  It was colored with Copics and they are:

Shirt - G21, 24, 28
Lace and socks - C1, 3, 5 and then on the socks I went over with B32 and B34
Jeans - B32, 34, 37
Log - E57, 33, 31
Hair - E59, 39, 25, 53
Skin - E50, 000, 21 and RV10 for the blush
Shoes - C00, 1, 3, 5

I don't know what company the background paper is but I made my own for the phrase piece using the Clearsnap Fluid Chalk Inks in Sour Apple and Ocean.

The glitter swirl was Superstock 130 lb paper from Canadian Scrapbooker and then I covered with the Scor Pal tape.  Ran it through the Cuttlebug and used the Tim Holtz die cut.  Peel off the liner paper and covered with the Glitter Ritz in Canadian Blue. 

Flowers are from Magnolia.

Here is a close up of the coloring on the Tilda stamp.

A quick close up of the phrase and then one of the inside.  If you would like any other details on how this was done, just let me know.

This one is being entered in the challenge at Magnolia-licious where the challenge is to use blue, green and white or clear. Wish me luck on this one!!
