Good morning all, hope the sun is shining where ever you are..... its trying its hardest here anyway :).

BearlyMine Designs is releasing two  more beautiful digi sets today, Fall Fancy and Summer Floral Delights. They can both be found HERE in the Shop.

I have used the Summer Floral Delights on my card, and I have to say, they are all beautiful...  you will love these :) 

As you can see, I didnt really need to add much to this card, the papers speak for them selves..

The image is by Saturated Canary.  Coloured with copics.  Retro flower punches used to make flower.

Make sure you pop over to the BearlyMine Designs shop and pop these in your basket :)

Tut for fur colouring, with copics.

My copic tutorial on how I colour fur.  I have used Mo Mannings' Tolerance 

 I first started with E39 doing random strokes 
Then using E37

E35 beginning to fill in spaces as you go.



E31 and now starting on the grey fur with C1

Using C3

oppsey, took two shots of same photo lol
Here I have gone back to E39 and added extra strands to add more texture to coat

 more C3 and C1 and then I went over quickly with the blender pen
and the finished picture :) 

I hope that I have made this easy enough for you all to follow and to have a try, and we would love to see how you get on, please post up your pictures in Bella and Brontes Clubhouse :)
hugs Jackie

Inspirational for BearlyMine

Good morning all, just.... Im on a go slow today, put my back out good and proper yesterday, and today in agony... and walking or should I say hobbling, like an old lady of 90... :(  due to pain factor and pain killers, which don't seem to be working...) I totally forgot it my day to post up my latest card for BearlyMine Inspirational and Challenge blog... so I do apologise for being a tad late.

For this card , which is nothing like my normal , but Inspirational it was, using the fabby new papers,  Mixed Media, by Donna, at BearlyMine Designs,....

The stamp is an old one, that I have probably only used once before, but I knew (if I still had it stashed away lol), it would be perfect for this card and papers.. luckily I had not got rid of it...   The little flowers are  made from a die, sorry I dont know name of..  and I have added lots of various fabrics and textures,

right... sat long enough now,, need to see if I can move off this chair.. lol..  how did I do it.... simply bending over to hold dogs snout so she not bite Vet whilst having a pedicure... she HATES her feet being done.... so a bit of a chillax day for me I think..... happy crafting all. xxx hugs J x

New Challenge at BearlyMine

Good afternoon all, a brand new challenge has just started today over at BearlyMine Inspiration and Challenge Blog,  and the theme for this month is SPRING, hence I chose this delightful little dog holding what we know to be spring flowers... (not that I have any in my garden lol), but luckily my neighbours are a lot more green fingered than I. :)

I got the image free from a mag a while back, and as always, coloured with copics, went for the rough colour on this one, which I like to do now and then.  The gorge papers are by Bearly Mine Designs, Peach Dreams and Mini Dots. tag by LOTV, from a set, and the ribbon was coloured with copics, as I didn't have any brown in my stash that was right...

As always, fabby prizes from our wonderful sponser Marianne Designs, and also from 'The Boss' Donna at BearlyMine Designs....   The challenge will run for a month, so plenty of time to come up with a fab card for the challenge, and for the DT to come by and leave some love.

and just look at the wonderful new digi sets made by Donna.. gorgeous. :)

For me, now, its back to my craft room and carry on with playing .. working lol

catch you all soon... hugs Jackie x
