Thrifty Thursday Beach Babe 3


It’s quite hilarious to be writing about beachy babes on a freezing cold winter night here on the Gold Coast. I’d much prefer to be frolicking on the beach like this cutie is! We can only dream can’t we…….

This digital stamp, along with a few other beach babes and boys are available for just $1 over at Scrappers Delights. Get in quick and then get colouring!!!


Here are my topic colour combos.

The background is just an awesome paper. No work at my end!!

Aurora Spring Melody


Aurora Spring Melody by The East Wind. What can I say? She is incredible. Such a beautiful drawing by Unky. Click here to purchase her.

I started by colouring all of the hair with a range of pastel copics (RV11, YR02, YR00, Y13, BV00) and then I did a second layer over the hair with flicks using 100, T7, T4, T2 and T1. This is the first time I have tried this technique. I am looking forward to trying it with all different colours too.

Here are the full Copic colours used.

Hair: 100, T7, T4, T2, T1, RV11, YR02, YR00, Y13, BV00.

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, RV11 (blush)

Lips: RV34

Eyes: B45, B41, B000

Eyeshadow: T4, T2, T1

Top and Headband: R85, RV63, RV11, RV10, RV000

Skirt: W4, Y15, Y11, Y000

White Top: W7, W5, W3, W1, W00

I really hope you like the end result. I really enjoyed this one. I felt that there was so much going on with the hair that I kept the card design super simple. Just one paper, a die cut sentiment and a bow. Easy as!

Full Of Grace


I could not wait to print the stunning ‘Full Of Grace’. The theme for July’s challenge with All Dressed Up is ‘Girly’ and you can’t get much girlier than this sweet ballerina!! You can purchase her here.

First, I coloured her up with Copics.

Skin: E30, E31, E33, E04, RV11

Lips: RV06

Hair: E18, YR27, YR23, Y21

Dress: V09, RV06, RV04, RV02

Leotard: 100, T8, T6, T4


I then added Vintage photo distress ink to the edges with a dauber using a circular motion.


Finally I added some Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel (Frantage).


I created a very simple card to use with this project as the image really speaks for itself. I simply added some papers that matched the distress ink and a few embellishments and it was done.


I really hope you like this project and join in the challenge with us this month.
