Coloring skills

A few days ago I spent some time on improving my coloring skills. I got so many nice comments when posting this image when I just colored the hair, that I finished it today and made a (simple) card of it. I'd like to join the following challenges:

Simply Gorjuss

Today I bought my first Distress Ink: walnut stain. Decided to buy one first, to see if I would like the technique. My first try turned out pretty well, I think. Off course I need some practice to prevent harsh stripes and stuff, but still I'm already happy with this result. I used a rubber stamp of Gorjuss, still one of my favorites. Have a nice weekend all!

Challenges I'd like to join:
Sketch Saturday - Sketch 306
Speedy Fox & Friends - #208: Use Kraft Card Stock
Kit and Clowder - Something Blue

Best buds

Just finished this card. I stamped the two different images of My Favorite Things next to each other and used one of my new die cut sets. I colored them with copics, in my favorite colors (green and blue!). I really like these hexagons! Today I used the sketch of challenge #5 of Sketch N' Dies. It became a real spring card, isn't it?

Other challenges I'd like to join:
Sparkles Monthly Challenges - Your favorite color combo (green & blue)
Ladybug Crafts - Here comes spring
Cards Galore Encore - Include your favorite color

Just because

I found out a new crafting shop in my neighbourhood, so I took my bike and cycled to the shop this afternoon. It sells a lot of dies, stamps, embossing folder and all kind of accessory crafting stuff. Happy me! Although I don't know if this shop so nearby will do any good for my bank account ;)

One of the dies I bought is from a set by Nellie Snellen. I used this to make this CAS card. The sentiment is made with a alphabet set from Paper Smooches. 

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Tokbobok - CAS

After spending a lot of time on my study this weekend, I finally found some time for crafting tonight. I saw the sketch of Unscripted Sketches on Paper Playful and decided to use this as a start for my card. I used washi tape for making the stripes and a cute stamp from Paper Smooches on top of it.

I'd like to join the following challenges:

Scribbles Designs - Toad-ally Unfrogettable
