Tiddly Inks Fabulous Friday

Hello everyone! It's Friday - Fabulous Friday at Tiddly Inks:) and I think I'm feeling blue... and need summer to be here... hence my card, I guess ;)

Bonjour à tous! Une carte  Tiddly Inks aujourd'hui... et essayer de faire venir le beau temps;)...

Stamps: Tiddly Inks Bathing Beauty digi and Beach Babe stamp set (available HERE for Europe), CC Designs Sweet Summer Sentiments Set
Colouring: Copics on Make It Colour Blending Card

I printed Bathing Beauty on Make It Colour Blending Card and coloured her in Copics. I then stamped the little border from the Beach Babe stamp set (or HERE for Europe) twice and coloured it with Copics as well. I added a sentiment and voilà! 

J'ai imprimé Bathing Beauty sur papier Make It Colour et je l'ai coloriée au Copic. J'ai tamponné deux fois la petite bordure du set Beach Babe (disponible ICI pour l'Europe), je l'ai coloriée au Copic aussi, puis ajoutée à mon image. Et enfin, juste un sentiment!

CC Designs February Review

Hello everyone! Today is Review Day at CC Designs and the DT are showcasing some very cute/fun animals in the Roberto's Rascals range... Look at this Grouchy Kitty...

Bonjour à tous! Petit retour sur les nouveautés du mois chez CC Designs, avec les animaux de la gamme Roberto's Rascals... Voilà mon p'tit chat qui a l'air ravi, Grouchy Kitty...

Colouring: Copics on Make It Colour Blending Card

The design is one my friend Pam made a video about, last year I think - and I just love her idea of the sentiment-stamped frame, so I thought it would be fun with my kitty:)... She has some great videos and a gorgeous blog, you can check it out HERE!

L'idée du cadre tamponné ne vient pas de moi, mais de mon amie Pam qui avait fait une vidéo dessus - elle a un blog superbe et des tutos très intéressants - si vous ne connaissez pas, c'est LA!

La petite fleur fait partie du set aussi, je l'ai tamponnée à l'encre bleue, j'ai colorié le coeur au crayon, je l'ai découpée puis placée sur un carré mousse, et pour finir, j'ai ajouté un brillant au centre.

Wishing you Sunshine at Copic Marker Europe!

Hello everyone! I'm back with a card I made for Copic Europe Marker - a little scene to wish you sunshine! 

Bonjour à tous! Je vous montre aujourd'hui une petite scène que j'ai faite pour Copic Europe Marker - juste pour vous amener un peu de soleil! 

For this scene, I used 3 stamps by CC Designs. First, I stamped the sweet character Olivia's Brella, masked her to stamp the Puddle and added the clouds and sun from the Cloudy Skies Set. The sentiment is from the Rainy Day Set. To avoid having a low, flat horizon behind my character, I mimicked bushes with my Copics. 

Pour cette scène, j'ai utilisé 3 tampons CC Designs. D'abord, j'ai tamponné mon personnage Olivia's Brella, je l'ai masqué pour ajouter la flaque Puddle, puis j'ai tamponné les nuages et le soleil du set Cloudy Skies. Le sentiment vient du set Rainy Day. Pour éviter un horizon tout plat et bas derrière mon personnage, j'ai dessiné des buissons avec mes Copic.

Hair/ Cheveux: E55, 74, 79

Copic Tiddly Inks Scene:)

Hello everyone! Today is Throwback Thursday at Tiddly Inks and I am sharing a little scene with older images from Tiddly Inks but oh how adorable... Valentine's Day is over, but I felt this cutie would be perfect for a special friend... and no need to be Feb 14th to give love:)!

Images: Tiddly Inks Be Mine and Who Loves You, Fizzy Moon sentiment
Colouring: Copics on Make It Colour Blending Card

I merged the tree and Be Mine image, placing the cute little girl so as to have her hide the owl in the tree, to keep only hearts everywhere and coloured my scene with Copics. Very simple, but I could not bring myself to add anything to this image - just "xxx", and not even words:)

Chloe Scene - Quixotic Paperie DT

Hello everyone! I am back to share another Tiddly Inks card I made for Quixotic Paperie, where you can preorder all the new release! I have used the adorable Chloe this time, and I have chosen to use two of the three sets featuring Chloe to make a little scene.

Bonjour à tous! Me revoilà avec une carte Tiddly Inks que j'ai faite pour Quixotic Paperie, cette fois avec la jolie Chloe! Il y a 3 sets différents avec elle et j'ai choisi d'en utiliser deux pour faire une petite scène. 

This super cute Chloe is from the Chloe and Her Friends Set, so is the sentiment, and the mushroom and Chloe's two Friends are from the Chloe Darkwing set. They are different elements, you can use only the mushroom if you like, or just one animal... which is what I like - you can have fun and combine them the way you want! 

Cette Chloe, et le sentiment, viennent du set Chloe and Her Friends et le champignon et les petits animaux viennent du set Chloe Darkwing. Ce sont des éléments indépendants, vous pouvez les combiner comme vous voulez - ce que j'adore faire! 

My scene is coloured with my beloved Copics on Make It Colour Blending Card and I have added a punched border and a Make It Crafty Chipboard from the Love Heart Swirls Set. There are still a few chipboard sets available, but these are the very last... once they're gone, they're gone!

Ma scène est coloriée aux Copic sur papier Make It Colour Blending Card et j'ai ajouté une bordure perforée et un chipboard Make It Crafty du set Love Heart Swirls. Il ne reste que peu de sets disponibles et ce sont les derniers... ils ne sont plus fabriqués, alors quand il n'y en aura plus, il n'y en aura plus!

Hair/ Cheveux: E55, 71, 74, 79
Outfit/ Tenue: R81, 83, 85, E40, 41, 42
