I am hosting this weeks challenge over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

Our theme is Orange and Purple!! So for this one I pulled out Spooky Suckers and my copic markers!

I love how he is peeking in from the side, and the stark white background allows them to appear as though they are floating. I always wanted to float as a child, not necessarily fly, but float. Yes, I was an odd kid.

Check out the Orange and Purple creations from our fabby design team and guests!

I am so honoured to be guesting for them, fingers crossed I will get to do it again one day lol!

I am super thrilled to be sharing some more inspiration using their October release, as per usual this release was the bomb!

MFT Stamps - Holiday Cheer - Jessie Banks

This Pure Innocence image is ever so sweet with all her little packages, she needed to be the focus on a card for sure! I loved the embossing, inking and copic colourin all together.

I do have a complete process video for you all!

Thank you all so much for watching and checking out my blog!

Colour Focus – Nickel Azo Yellow

Hey everyone! Today’s colour focus is going to focus on one of my favorite yellows, Nickel Azo Yellow, PY150. I love this colour for it’s bright glowing washes, and it’s rich mass tones. This pigment is a staple in making the new versions of my beloved Quinacridon Gold as well!

I love the variations of colours you can achieve with mixing this, I had a hard time getting all the colours to appear correctly for this one, those purple tones of to the right, are actually more brown with purple undertones, as you will see in the video, but the rest of the colours are true.

I hope you enjoyed the video, of course I have a small product list for you all.
