Enjoy with Zen Beauty Serenity

SCACD Stamps - Zen Beauties - Serenity - www.markergeek.com

Over the weekend I¬†took a break from work and my epic “To Do” list and had a little crafty playtime “just because”. I knew I wanted to play with one of the new Zen Beauties fairies from SCACD Stamps, so I picked “Serenity” and made the rest up as I went along. ūüėČ

I stamped the image using a pale ink on Make it Colour Blending card so I could colour it using the “No Lines” technique (see end of post for more info and links to other examples).¬†Because I intended to airbrush the background, I also stamped the image in black on scrap paper to cut out and use as a mask.

Meet Fifi, who comes in a set with her friends Cici and Toto.  These little sprites are super sweet, and make adorable cards on their own, or work beautifully with the other characters and backgrounds to build a scene!  You can check out my card featuring Cici HERE.

Because she’s so small, Fifi was a breeze to colour up and pop on a card.¬† Ideal, because this week I am working flat out with QP and several projects with deadlines fast approaching!¬† Eep!

Happy Birthday Katie!


When Tangii emailed me last week to ask if I’d join in¬†with today’s¬†special event, I didn’t hesitate to say YES!¬† Today is Katie Cotton‘s birthday, and we’re having a little hop to celebrate!


Over the past couple of years I have had the pleasure of working with Katie as a stockist for her fantastic stamp line РPaper Makeup Stamps Рand also of getting to know her personally.  Katie is a fantastic lady with many talents, and I wish her an equally fantastic birthday!

The Paper Makeup Stamps range is among my favourites, and today I’ve combined a couple of the fantastic Beautiful Day Fairies stamps with another favourite – Make it Crafty.¬† Now that I’ve reduced my design team commitments (as sad as I was to do so), I’m looking forward to being able to create more cards like this, featuring various brands and forming fun scenes!

I think you can probably tell that I had a LOT of fun colouring this scene up.
