The Daily Marker 30 Day - Day 15


Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there. Especially to my Dad, this picture was taken this past January on my Dad's 90th birthday.

He has always been a rock star to me, the most unselfish man I have ever known who would do anything for his family and his friends. He taught me compassion, empathy, how to love unconditionally and how to laugh in goods times and in bad! Love him to the moon and back! 

Happy Father's Day Dad!

I am playing a bit of catch up with the challenge. Things got busy the past few days so I have fallen a bit behind. For Day 15 we used the cute octopus set from Jillibean Soup to colour with alcohol ink markers. I have been trying to make cards each day this challenge because I find if I just colour I never seem to go back later to make the card. I made a shaker card for the ocean scene, I probably could have filled it a bit more but once that lid goes on, it stays on--lol.


Enjoy your day!

The Daily Marker 30 Day - Day 13


Today we are colour Essentials by Ellen City Lady! These ladies have been so fun to colour with all their cute clothes and accessories! The Essentials by Ellen City Lady designer dies cut all the images out perfectly allowing you to create some of the most fun scenes.

All my images were copic coloured but her pants. I masked off her pants and sponged with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink and the I sponged the same ink onto the cross hatch pattern from the Essentials by Ellen Pattern Play stamp set and stamped over top of the already sponged pants to create the subtle pattern. The Pattern Play clear stamps are a must in my opinion, so many ways you can use all these patterns in all of your stamping!


Thanks for coming by again today!

The Daily Marker 30 Day - Day 12


For Day 12 we were colouring Uptown Girls from Stamping Bella. I coloured Girl's Just Wanna Have Fun for this card that would be perfect for a Bachelorette party! Copic coloured and some of the illusive Wink of Stella inside the glasses!


Thanks for coming by today!

Beach Lady


Another new Essentials by Ellen Leading Lady - Beach Lady! I just love her sweet dress and fun accessories. I think this month's Leading Ladies might be my favourite yet.

I sponged a background with Antique Linen and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks. Then I added a sentiment from previously released Make it Beautiful. I die cut her and the accessories I was going to use with the Essentials by Ellen Leading Lady - Beach Lady designer dies. Then I coloured the lady with Copic markers and adhered her to the card with foam tape for some dimension.


Thanks for dropping in today!

Muse #270 and The Daily Marker 30 Day - Day 11


Happy Monday! Time for new challenge at Muse!
Doing something a little different this week. The pretty Studio Katia Lovely Blooms (SSS|SK) has been coloured with pencil crayons on toned grey cardstock. In Canada we call coloured pencils, pencil crayons--so many memories of getting a new package for back to school each year. I coloured the image with Prismacolor Premiere Colored Pencils.

Now don't let the inspiration make you nervous, remember that at Muse your card is inspired by the Muse card. So you chose how to interpret it.


The sentiment is from the Studio Katia Birthday Greetings stamp set (SSS|EH|SK).


I can't wait to see how this inspires you!
