Fearless Fairy Tales Beauty and the Beast

This is Fearless Fairy Tales Beauty and the Beast from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I colored it with Prismacolor Pencils and I was able mix the colors a little more than usual. This has been a long time favorite stamp of mine so I enjoyed coloring the whole thing.  The paper, however, wasn't the best to use as it was too smooth, but I got along OK. 

What are you working on?  I'd love to see you post about it in the LMMS FB group or in the current challenge - it's an easy one.  :D  It's always inspiring to see everyone's work.

De Witte Engel Birthday Bird

Tweet, tweet, tweet.  This is a felted bird I created using the De Witte Engel Birthday Bird kit.  It actually has a odd story to go along with him.  I purchased the kit about two years ago - it was a beginning kit and would be my first experience with felting.  OK, good, this was something I could handle.  Little did I know what I was getting myself into.  After breaking my needles, I purchased replacements only to loose them.  I found other replacement needles but had then lost the bird.  Arg!   I found the bird a month later but, you guessed it, my needles were now missing.  This just wasn't in the stars for me so I gave up.  But not really, as you can plainly see, I found it and my needles a couple weeks ago.  Voila!

Jumbo Birthday Snails

I finally finished it!  This is Jumbo Birthday Snails (which is a jumbo version of Belated Birthday Snails) from Little Miss Muffet Stamps - if you've been on Facebook, you might have seen my back story.  I had sent this image in to get a stamp created but it was in the middle of the night.  So when the magnesium plate came back, we discovered that I had accidentally ordered it at six inches large.  Whoops!  That was twice the size to was really suppose to be.  LOL.

What else was there to do, but to color it up?  So I stamped a couple extra and got a few others involved.  Then I preceded to grab my markers and this is what I came up with . . .

I wanted to go for a realistic whimsical look so I looked at snail photos to get an idea of the shell and snail.  The middle snail didn't fit in this theme so I tried to make it look like it was covered with a blanket.  Then the streamers were widened and the background was suppose to look like distant foliage.  Lastly the ground was colored to look like a tree branch - at least, I hoped that's what the looks like.

Here are some detailed shots...

The card measures 6.5" square so it will have to be one that I personally deliver or something.  LOL.  My daughter also wanted to color one, so this is her project and what she did with the stamp . . .

Here's an image I've been trying to color for years!  This is Isabella and is an Emerald Faeries rubber stamp.  I was in a bluish-purplish mood but I'm not sure I like the outcome.  I'll have to use a different color next time.  The sentiment and butterflies are a chipboard embellishments from Make it Crafty.

I have a bunch of colored images that I'm going through and it feels nice to get some quick projects done.  The image I'm coloring on right now has been a long process with a few minutes here and there.  Hopefully I'll get it done soon, but in the mean time, you can enjoy these other quick projects.  Hope you have a great Sunday!
