A couple of cuties

This little cutie is one of the special designs from Czes Pacehella over at Cuddly Buddly. Czes is creating something new every working day until British Summer Time starts on 27 March. This precious little pup was from a couple of days ago and is also available as a coloured decoupage sheet. I've coloured the digi image with my Copic pens, not many so here's the list:

warm greys W1, 3, 5 & 7 and a little R00 on his muzzle,
reds R24, 27, 29 & 59
and shadow in E40, 41 and 42.

I've used the sketch from the Sketch and Stash blog and sort of kept to the CAS style, but added a big daisy and some little pearl blobs made with my white Waco pearl pen. The blobs at the bottom are in lieu of the sentiment that I repositioned under the image.

My second cutie is from yesterday and introduces a new character to the Toby Tumbles range, this cute little squirrel digi is also available as a coloured decoupage sheet. I've coloured with my Copics, but kept layering the green shades until I was happy with the oak leaves. I've used YG21, 23, 25, 91 93, 95, & 97 then for the squirrel I've used E11, 13, 35, 39 and 08. For the branch and acorns I used E42, 44 & 47 plus the darker YG greens. The background is shaded with the warm greys, W1, 3 5 & 7 plus Magnolia Versamagic chalk ink sponged on afterwards. The background papers are digi downloads from Cuddly Buddly, and also the stamped text - but it's all looking a bit bright in the picture, in real life it's more olive green and cream. The Papertake Weekly challenge is called Trio Tastic, to have sets of 3 on your card. I have 3 layers and 3 flowers, plus 3 different types of embellishment - the flowers, die cut swirls and brown gems.

Now to go and see what Czes had created for us today .. ..

  10. hard to choose between these two - love the stylishness of the first & the classic colour. With the second it's the lovely colours & the amazing combination of grey with brown - just love that with the green really making the whole "sing" with vibrancy.
    Well - it looks like the second just wins by a whisker.
