Its Molly time at Tiddlyinks

Hi there

Today I am sharing with you one of the stars of Tiddlyinks and her name is Molly.

The stamp I am using today is called Molly Swims. It conjures up sunny days with lots of warmth and sunshine. This can be used for birthdays, just because or just to celebrate learning to swim.

I used both markers and watercolour paints with this stamp. The image was coloured using copics while the beach background was painted in watercolours. I used glossy accents to make the plastic of the inner tube standout as well as the water in the background to give the feeling of being on the ocean. Here is Molly swims

Hope you had fun at this week's challenge of Molly Makes at Tiddlyinks and I hope you stop by all the other talented designers as well as pop in the store to get your own Molly

See you next time!

Colouring roses

Today I had my most challenging colouring project...colouring roses.

I love roses but for some reason I find them a challenge when I am colouring or painting them. This one I found less intimidating...I guess because I coloured each petal one at a time and I coloured the image with markers.

The copic markers I used were R29, R27, R35, R43, R00 for the rose. For the leaves YG17, GOO, G21 and G03.

I started with the smaller rose defining each petal at a time. Adding cast shadows, them medium tones then the lightest colour, leaving a sliver of uncoloured parts as my highlights. I repeated the same process for the second rose and added a tiny tinge of yellow just for some contrast. I have found it easier to concentrate on one area at a time as coached by my teacher, Alyce.

The leaves were also individually coloured starting with the colour I selected for the shadows YG17 and then the midtones and highlights were added afterwards insuring that the veins of the leaves were higlighted. I showcased the rose on a wooden background against a blue wall.

Here are my lovely roses

Hope you feel inspired to try out some challenging prospect youve been thinking of doing and remember take small steps and you will get there. Thanks for stopping by.

Fab Friday at Tiddlyinks

Hi there . Its another fabulous Friday at Tiddlyinks.

Today I am using one of the extra images you get when you purchase some of the digital stamps at Tiddlyinks. Sometimes Christy gives you extra little goodies to complete your card composition. Today I am using one from Father's Day Vintage Truck

This bonus stamp is an image of golf clubs which can be used by itself or with the truck. Either in the truck bed or at the side of the truck.

Here is my card for Fabulous Friday

This can be used for a guy or a gal who likes golfing. Dont be afraid to challenge yourself. I often do.

Hope you enjoy this card and check out the other beautiful cards submitted by the remainder of the design team at Tiddlyinks

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Sweet Cherry Cards.
