Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #50


Hello everyone! Today is the start of a new challenge at Paperbabe Stamps and it's an easy one - Anything Goes!! We hope you will join us and try to win a gift voucher to the store
For this challenge, I took out my acrylic paints... which I probably have not touched for about 10 months... I had to do a bit of cleaning to remove the dust ;)!! Here is what I did: 


Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Mini Female Face Stamp Set
Substrate: Paperbabe Stamps MDF Mixed Media Blanks Hanging Circles Set
Templates: Paperbabe Stamps Mini Head and Torso and Blunt Bangs Long 
Stencil: Paperbabe Polka Dots Stencil
Colouring: Acrylic paint, Polychromos, Posca on MDF

I used the big MDF circle from the Mixed Media Blanks Hanging Circles Set to create my portrait. I started to draw the shapes in pencil, using the Mini Head and Torso Templates, and the Blunt Bangs Long Template for the hair. I coloured the skin in acrylic paint then stamped the face features using the Mini Female Face Stamp Set. I painted everything in acrylics then added pencil (Polychromos). For the background, white ink on my Polka Dots Stencil :)

That was fun to create and really did me good :)! I hope you can have some fun too and will share your makes with us! Thank you very much for your visit, have a fab day! Hugs,
Delphine xx

Krafty Komeback!


Hello everyone! It's time for a Krafty Komeback! As you know lots of the rubber stamp sets at Kraftin' Kimmie have long retired and are not available for purchase anymore. Well we've decided to switch some things up and rerelease a few of our faves in clear! And today we're announcing a new one!

Love love love!


Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a card full of love! I used one of the Sweet Valentine Girls digis by Make it Crafty called Marcy's Full Of Love - of course ;)!


As always, I coloured skin first using E000, 00, 04, 11 and a bit of R20 for the cheeks and mouth.


Next I coloured part of her dress white - using C Copics. I left a lot of white to give the impression of white with shading and coloured using C4 in the places meant to be the darkest, then C2 and C0.


I continued with the reds. To give a bit more depth, I used T5 in the darkest spots, then R39, R37 and R35.


For her black hair, I chose my favourite combo of 100, C9, then C7 and BV04 in the highlights. So all the colours I used for my image are as follows:

Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11
Hair: 100, BV04, C7, 9
Eyes: BG000
White: C0, 2, 4
Red: R35, 37, 39, T5

And there she is on a card:


I matched her with love DPs by MFT and added 4 little Make it Crafty Mini Hearts Chipboard Tinklings coloured in R35 and R39.

That's all from me today, thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,
Delphine xx
