Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Post - Fairy and her Bunny

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post this week for Whimsy Stamps.

The sentiment is from the Birthday Wishes Sentiment set as well.

I took complete inspiration from a card I saw in the Whimsy Stamps and Inspiration group on Facebook by Amy Young and added a tree to the branch, so it didn't look like she was just floating in the air. Thank you Amy for the idea and I hope you don't mind me borrowing it!

Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Demera Spring Breeze Fae

Good Morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Faery Ink today! I have used the gorgeous Demera Spring Breeze Fae, which was the One Day Fae Giveaway for last month. If you didn't manage to get her for free, you will be able to buy her here in the store shortly.

I used the light lines version of her, which I always find more tricky to colour, but I love the effect of the no lines colouring! I went with nice, bright Spring colours and added a few flowers and butterfly dies, The butterfly in her hair was a much needed cover up as my new Wink of Stella pen blobbed on her hair! Grrr!

In my mission to use up some of my old patterned papers, I used the long time retired Subtles papers from Stampin' Up and slowly I am getting through the pinks that I was saving for a special card. No point in saving something for "special" as I never use it!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Post - Fialka

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Little Miss Muffet Stamps. This week I have used the gorgeous Polka Dot Pals Fiakla for my card and coloured her with my Copics. I actually forgot to use the add on faces so attempted to follow Barbara's cheeks and nose tutorial for creating the nose and mouth.

I will admit the first attempt was awful, so I re-did just her face after botching it over and over, cut it out and glued it on the top of this one. I had coloured the hair and everything else to see if it would make the original face better, but it didn't :(  I didn't have E30 as it has run out and I haven't bought the reinker for it yet, so used YR30 which was the closest on my hex chart and I think it made the skin too yellowy. But this is how you learn I guess!

I definitely need some practice on doing this as I just couldn't get it to look right! The nose is still a bit wonky!

Good Morning and welcome to my post for the new challenge from the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This month or challenge is for you to use your favourite colours.
