Hexes and more Hexes

Today I am quilting with paper....That's paper punch Hexes from Stampin-up.
Little Miss Muffet is having an anything-goes-challenge, so I am showing off her new Jamie Stamp with face.  Come join us...

The first card is Jamie from Little Miss Muffet Polka Dot Pals.  I also used her new Add-on-Faces eye stamp for the eyes and glasses.  Remember the Polka Dot Pals have two little beaded eyes?

The second card is Tilda With Bunny Balloon from Magnolia.  Here I colored her eyes in and played with Zentangle on her ballon.

And just so you know that I really love to is a picture of my Hexes quilt I am working on now:

Enjoy and have a nice day...

Texas Colouring Retreat

Just one of the Cards we did at the Colouring Retreat with Zoe, Barbara and Christy.  We had this coloring challenge with us coloring on a card and passing it on to our neighbor until the card made it around the room.  Each time we had  3 minutes to color. This is my card and I started with two tone purple bows on her dress and in her hair.  It turned out really fun and was a real learning experience!

Coloring Practice

Today Barbara and I are coloring again.  Practicing my coloring.
The one on the Left is done with Prismacolor Pencils only and the one on the Right was done with Copic Markers and topped with Prismacolor Pencils. I used Strathmore Bristol Vellum Surface paper and I REALLY LIKED using the pencils but found it harder to use the Copic Marker.  They seemed to puddle on me.

Which one do you like best?

More Coloring from the Retreat

 Here are two cards from the coloring retreat:
     The first one is Fancy Sunbonnet Miss Muffet from Little Miss Muffet.  The background was painted with a ink pad and stamp with Fancy Sunbonnet Miss Muffet masked out, just as Zoe taught us. The pen was a cross from Zentangle, Barbara's clouds and my own thoughts.

The second card was from the coloring hair challenge, Hair of a different color .  I colored the hair with copic markers.  The rest was colored with Prismacolor pencils. The paper for this one was Zoe's paper.

Texas Colouring Retreat with Zoe and Barbara

 We had Soooooo much fun at the 2014 Colouring Retreat with Zoe from Make it Crafty and Barbara from Little Miss Muffet.  And I am still coloring!  Here are some of my cards:

This first one I really colored about 5 months ago when Barbara was trying to teach me how to color in faces without drawn lines.  I even did this one myself, no help from Barbara. The image is Polka Dot Pals from Little Miss Muffet.  She comes with little beady eyes and the rest is up to you.

At the coloring retreat I colored the balloon on Tilda with Big Balloon and added the zentangle to it.  What a BLAST!  I will be doing more of this! We played around with coloring hair and making glow spots for our images and after coming home this is how I chose to finish this one.  Barbara did bailed me out with the hair, but the FACE IS ALL MINE!

What fun we all had and Zoe and Barbara did a GREAT JOB PLANNING EVERYTHING.
THANK YOU for the great time.

We learned more, so there will be more to come.
