New Release at Ppinkydolls

Hello everyone, and Happy Friday!! It is a long weekend here in Canada, and of course the weather is supposed to be lousy. I will take that as an opportunity to craft as much as possible! Today I have a new release from Ppinkydolls and another that she released last month. They are both super cute!!

The first one is "With My Pet". She was just released a couple of days ago. How precious is she?! I used Copics to colour her, and Shabby Blue Charms digital papers from Michele R. I tried to link back to the papers, but it appears the Shabby Blue isn't available anymore. Check out her shop HERE though. She has a lot of beautiful papers to choose from. I punched the butterflies out with a Martha Stewart punch; the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used a By DieZyne stitched bracket die for the image.

The next one is "Abi". I coloured her up for the Etsy shop and finally got around to putting her on a card. She is probably one of my favourites! I also coloured her with Copics after cutting her out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Ovals die. I used Michele R Vintage Flowers digital papers and flowers from I Am Roses. The lace is from Live & Love Crafts. 

I really love Ppinkydolls for making shabby themed cards. I think they work really well. For anyone interested in colouring Ppinkydolls, you might want to lighten the image before printing so the shading isn't so dark. It is the question I get asked the most, "Why doesn't yours look as shaded as the one in the store?" I always lighten the image before printing. I then have to go over their eyes with either black colour pencil, or I use W7 or W9 to darken those black areas back up.

Make sure you check out the Ppinkydolls Facebook page for monthly contests and occasional freebies!! 
Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I love lightening the print on my digi's although sometimes its a challenge to colour - but the end result is always worth the extra effort.
    Beautiful cards Myndi, I especially like the way you've coloured their hair.
