Tiddly Inks ~ Fab Friday

Happy Friday! I am back to share another Tiddly Inks creation with you. From the minute I saw this image, I knew that I wanted to print it out large and add it to a watercolored background for my Art Journal. I have been watching some of Kristina Werner’s video and how she creates such gorgeous backgrounds with distress inks and I wanted to try it out. Generally, I sponge on my Distress inks and then add water. This time I tried things a little differently :)


I might go ahead and write something along the bottom with some Sharpie Poster paint, but I am still not sure what I want to write! It will come to me I am sure!

I added some Crystal Stickles around the circular part of the image. It just need a little something and that touch of sparkle was it!


Here is the video sharing how I created it:

Little Witch

Happy Thursday! A few months back I received a very happy email but I had to keep the news hush- hush!  Now, I can finally spill the beans! I am delighted to join The Digi Bells and Elizabeth Bell’s World Design teams as a Special Guest for the next 3 months! I have been a big fan of Elisabeth’s work for a long time and am so pleased to have this opportunity!

Today’s creation uses an image from Elisabeth Bell’s Digital Collection: Little Witch with Broom. I wanted to create a page for my art journal binder and so I sized this to fit nicely on a 6 x 8” page.

The image was colored with Copic Markers and to create the background I used some Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I added the white dots with a Sharpie Poster Paint pen. To add a little extra interest, I used a paper piercer and my Tim Holtz ruler to create the tiny holes in the upper left and bottom right sides.
Here are the Copic Markers that I used:

Penguin Party

Happy Sunday! Just wanted to share a little Christmas card with you :)

I used the sweet digital image Penguin Pary to create a mini-card that measures 4 x 4”.


The image was colored with Copic Markers and then I used a bluePrismacolor pencil to create a background.  I added some stickles to the bottom for snow. The dots were made with a white Sharpie Poster paint pen.

Whimsy Halloween Decor + Video

Happy Wednesday! I have another Halloween decoration to share with you as well as a video! It may seem like a little early to be talking Halloween but it will be upon us before we know it! Time to get prepared :)

I found this chalkboard pumpkin shape as well as the laser cut sentiment at Michaels Art and Crafts store. I immediately thought that I could personalize it by adding a colored image and some die-cut shapes. Into my basket it went!


I colored up this adorable witch image Hazel with copic markers and then fussy cut her out, leaving a thin white border around the whole image so that it would stand out against the black of the pumpkin shape.


I felt that the top near the stem was a little too bare so I added the trio of die-cut spider webs around it. I really llke how it looks! Good thing I always cut more shapes than I THINK I need! The little bat is a cute touch to the sentiment. This took very little time but will look great displayed in my house for Halloween!

Tiddly Inks Tuesday Challenge

Happy Tuesday! It is time for another Tiddly Ink Challenge and I happen to {heart} the theme this time around:

Let’s Get Crafty!


I knew that this image would be perfect to pair with kraft paper. I colored it up with some Copic Markers and then fussy cut it out. I created my card-base with kraft cardstock cut to measure 4”x 5.5”. Then I ran it through my printer to print the “happy” sentiment which is one of three that comes with the image. Then I used a ruler and a fine-tipped sharpie to draw the line around the side of the kraft card-stock.

Spookie Sookie Halloween Door hanger

Happy Monday! We are officially a few days into Fall so I think I can start posting Halloween creations. Right? I feel like because of what I do, I am always way ahead seasonally speaking :)

I have a fun Halloween door hanger and a how to video for you today.


I like the idea of door hanger for Halloween and Christmas. It is an easy way to decorate and doesn’t involve anything more strenuous than hanging something on the doorknob……and that means it is super easy to put away after the event :)


I used distress inks to create the background and then embossed some super fine cobwebs. The moon was also watercolored but the image was colored with copic markers.


Here is how I made it:

Whimsy Supplies:
Spooky Sookie the Halloween Fairy + Accents Rubber Stamp
Halloween Die Set

Other Supplies: 
Distress Inks (Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves)
Hero Arts Soft Yellow
Copic Markers
Zig Glue Pen
Scor-Pal Tape 1/2”
Spellbinders Circle and Scalloped Circle Dies
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Neenah Solar Crest White Paper
Watercolor Paper (Strathmore 90lb)
Versafine + White Embossing Powder
Zig Clean Color Brush in Light Grey

Thanks for swinging by! I actually will have another Halloween decor video up on Wednesday! Don’t forget to come check it out.

Tiddly Inks Fab Friday Too Cute to Spook

Happy Friday Everyone! It has been a little quiet here on my blog but it has been super busy in my craft studio! There will be a lot shared over the next week and moving forward into the Halloween and Christmas season :)

I wanted to create something for Halloween and I thought this cute image was perfect.


I colored the image up with Copic Markers. The colors are listed below.I tend to like purple and black for my Halloween makes.


The background was created using some watercolor paper and Distress inks. I used Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire and Seedless preserves. I tapped water onto the paper using a paint brush dipped in some water. The moon was created with a little masking and Hero arts Soft Yellow ink and a little grey watercolor to give some definition.


Both the die cut fence and the spider web are from La-La Craft stamps. I have had them for awhile but always pull them out around this time of the year.
