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.
