Summer Breeze

Morning All :)

It's Release Day over at Little Miss Muffet. Six Little Misses are now available in rubber, which means their digi counterparts will be retiring on 27 June. Barbara is out of town this weekend, so there will be a delay with any orders, but to make up for it, all orders placed before 26 June, will receive a random Sugar and Spice Doll image for free. Whoop! But you really need to check out the Little Miss Muffet Blog. Mostly because my teamies have cooked up the most fabulous selection of loveliness to tempt you, but also because all the special offer details are there, including timings. Translating Central Time into Fluff makes me, literally, go googly!!


I thought it was about time I had a go at clouds in Copics. I've been avoiding them for ages, but I keep seeing tutorials, so...

I need more practice. You know when you do something and you're not happy with it? Do you ignore it and chalk it up to experience? Or do you go back and try and make it better, only to make it worse? And then, every time you look at it, all you can see is the thing you're not happy with. Do you leave it? Or do you go back?! Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggghhhhhh!


I'd like to enter this card at:

She is just so pretty Faye! I love how you have coloured her up and those clouds in the background look amazing! :)

Davi said...

Beautiful card Faye and I do say you did a fab job on those clouds!!

Shelby said...

I usually try to make it better and then it ends up way worse!!! I've learned to try the clouds/background first so if I mucked it up, then I haven't wasted time coloring the rest. However, I think you did an amazing job with the clouds and sky and also love the grass. Beautiful work

Hiya sweetheart!
I just love this creation, it looks like a miniature painting, you should frame it.
No further practice is needed, I think you've perfected the art.
Thanks for saying my dotty lady reminds you of me (obvious you've never seen this old girl irl)
Miss ya sweetie,
