Everyday Fun

I don't know about you, but to me it seems like everyone is into coloring books these days. Well, I have always loved coloring books, so I'm a fan of this fad. BUT, if you haven't tried a digital coloring book, you're really missing something!

What I love about the Tiddly Inks coloring books is that you can resize the pages and print them out smaller, so that you can make a card size out of a coloring page. And if you haven't taken a peek at 'em yet, go go gadget fingers! Christy has some lovely images in these books, with great borders so that you essentially just need to color and affix to a card base. And then, ta-da, instant beauty! For this li'l gal and her kitty, I used the Everyday Fun Coloring Book.

And in case you're wondering...yes that is me and my cat Cricket, my li'l pal on my journey through life and Lyme disease. The best companion!

Here are the colors I used for this pretty:
skin - E11, 21, 01, 000, 0000, R20, 21
hair - E57, 55, 53, 51
scooter - R37, 27, 17, 14, C09, 07, 05, 04, 100
clothes - YR24, Y18, 06, 04, R37, 85, 53, RV32
houses - E47, 44, 43, 42, V20, 22, 25, 28
grass - G03, 28, 14, YG06, 11
kitty - 100, N9, E99, 37, 35, 33, R20

Hello and welcome to the weekend! Today my post highlights a Winnie Polkadoodles stamp. If you've never checked out Winnie, she's full of spunk and whimsy. I inked up this beauty, Tea-riffic, from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps, and gave her a vintage feel peppered with polka dots and pearl buttons.

I'm planning on submitting my little vintage gal for the current Polkadoodles challenge and for the Little Darlings Design Team call - wish me luck!

Here is my color recipe:
skin - E11, 21, 01, 000, 0000, R20
hair - E99, YR23, Y21
black - 100, N9, 7, 4
hot pink - RV09, 06, 04, 02
green - G03, 02, 00

The papers I used are from a Jen Hadfield pad by Pebbles. The ribbon, pearls, and buttons are from my stash.

Audrina Mermaid

I've got another mermaid for you today. I recently discovered Stamp Anniething. Usually, my discoveries coincide with sales. I was so pleased to scoop this little mermaid lady up recently on sale as my first ever Stamp Anniething. She was such a delight to color.

Here's my color recipe:
skin - E13, 11, 21, 00, 000, 0000, R20, 21
hair - V09, 06, 12, RV55
tail and top - BG49, 15, 34, G12
starfish - E55, 53, YR20, Y00

I kept the design simple and used only a white gel pen and Nuvo Aquatic Mist glitter drops as embellishment.

I'm entering this design into the Week #19 challenge at Stamp Anniething - seeing stars.

Wryn the Mermaid

I'm nuts over Tiddly Inks what else is new? Today I'm using my new favorite image, er, uh, ahem...all of them are forever my new favorite images!

This week we've got a new challenge for you on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog, using Autumnal colors. Check out the website and come join us for this fun challenge!

Have I mentioned how much I loooove Wryn the Mermaid?! Probably not enough. This is a great image to practice hair, and doesn't it just speak "fun" to you?

Here's my color recipe for this card. I kept my embellishments really simple to a bit of twine, a die-cut wave, and some Nuvo morning dew shine drops since I wanted the colored image to steal the show.

On to the colors:
skin - E13, 11, 21, 00, 000, 0000, 93
top and tail - R29, 35, 32, E93, 01, YR01
hair - R56, E04, 41, RV32
starfish - R56, 29, 35, 32, E93, 44, 43
