La La Land

Hi Everyone

Did you enjoy the Olympic opening? I sure did, I thought Rowan was brill and 007 and the queen so funny too but was disapointed with Mac, missed his cue and talk about a face lift he look terrible, the other thing I was not that keen on was the band Artic Monkeys (ok the oldie bit coming out here lol) but I did enjoy everything else and the flame was fantastic, inspiring.


My post for today is a card that I teach in my Copic class, I do all white cards at the moment as I never know what colours they want to use, (thank you Jing for this idea) starting next week we shall start introducing DP, flowers ribbon and all the other stuff we all put on cards.



Love this image from La La Land and I have put it in the customers gallery too, they are great because of the big face's it is easier for the class to practise their colours, they are doing so well to say they have never used Copic before.

I coloured her with Copic and used embossing folder and Nesstie dies and flowers from W/O.

Challenges

Stamptacular Sundays  - Dies

Stampman - Anything Goes Celebration

Crafts 4 Eternity - Birthdays
Thank you for popping in today I do appriciate your comments and I shall see you all later.

Sweet Magnolia

 Good Evening Everyone

A great time in my craftroom today I have finally started my Copic journal, got another page of my recipe scrapbook done and then took time out to make a magnolia card.

I was thinking I could do with some more magnolia stamps so I got them out to see which ones I had and was sad to see I do not have that many, than I got distracted from my copic journal and decided to make this card.





 I coloured her with Copic and the papers are K and Co and distressed with Victorian velvet ink, like a bit of timmy. The flowers and corners are from W/O,sentiment is from the same paper pad, the little pin I made myself, ribbon and pearls from my stash, I also did the inside to match as usuall.

Challenges

Wild Orchid - Shabby Chic

Magnolia Mania - Prince and Princesses

Papertake - All Things Girly


Thats all for now, off to make a cuppa now then a blog tour, thank for popping in to see me, have a great night all.
