Betsy and Bunny in Dreamland

Here is some cute inspiration from me today.  For those who know I like dark stuff, yes, I am actually ill and feverish.  Apparently I make happy and pretty things when ill and dark, creepy stuff when well.  Perhaps I should speak to my shrink about this phenomenon?  LOL!  Click image to enlarge.  You can purchase the image, "Betsy and Bunny" here.  Click here to find the Rick St. Dennis Fans and friends group.

The Dark World of Carnivals



Hi!  Lady Brayton here!  I made some creepy fun inspiration for everyone today using Rick St. Dennis images, but the images are no longer offered as digital singles. Instead, pages upon pages of these awesome images as well as scenes can be found in Rick's "The Dark World of Carnivals" adult colouring book which is listed in the comments below.  This is brilliant because you don't have to think about what to create with the images.  You can just colour and enjoy!  Anyway, if you're looking for digital singles or sets, many other cool images can be found in Rick St Dennis Mfa​'s Etsy and Zibbet shops.  Also, both shops have instant downloads so you can have instant gratification. The zibbet shop has the more mainstream images and the Etsy shop has the darker images.

My piece is a mix of copic coloured images as well as digitally coloured images and the scene was created in Photoshop.  I added some elements and light effects from Mischief Circus, Gothic Inspirations, and Lotta Designs. Click the image to enlarge.  Cheers!

Jester Bear by Helene

I used this amazingly cute Jester Bear on my latest card. Coloured with Ranger's Distress Inks in the colours: Tumbled Glass, Candied Apple, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain and Scattered Straw. There is a whole series of bears made by Rick and I adore them all. Just a simple dry embossed background, no more decorations needed.

Euro Girl Denise the Artiste - Crafting Vicky

Hi everyone!  Hope you are all doing fabulous.  Today I'm here to share with you a very messy little journaling out of the box using the fabulous Euro Girl Denise The Artiste.

I say journaling out of the box because I have been making little journaling cards to place into an old disquette box.  I still have to embellish the box but I think it's very fun to make those little tiny journaling cards.  I'm using an old kid's game to journal on!  So recycling at it's best!  Love when I can transform something.

Anyway I have made a little video of my process including my finger painting :)

And here's the little card for you to see.

The image was colored with my copics and then fussy cut out.  I used some die cuts as well as a bunch of different sentiments that I have cut out of magazines.

I had lots of fun making this as you can see in the video!

You can check out how this was made on my blog post here.

Hope you like my inspiration. Check out all the other fabulous images in the Zibbet store or in the Etsy store!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Vicky
