Dobby - character drawing

Happy Monday!
I hope you have a fantastic day!
I challenged myself and decided to draw my favourite character from the Harry Potter series. Can you guess who it is?
I used Faber Castell polychromos and I have to say that I love how they blend.

Who is your favourite character from the Harry Potter series?

The Lion King

Happy Saturday!
I hope you are fine and have a wonderful day :)

A few weeks ago I watched the new version of the Lion King and my mind was blown away. Wow! The film from 2019 is so outstanding that I can not even believe how they made it. The attention to detail is out of this world! If you haven't seen it yet I really recommend you do it asap. If you have seen it, let me know who is your favourite character.

I loved the film so much that I decided to try using Polychromos on a black paper and how would that look like, I could not resist and had to draw young Simba :)

Disc World and a dragon

Happy Friday!
I hope you have a fabulous day :)

Recently, I've been thinking about the books that I really liked when I was in a secondary school and I read and still read Disc World series by Terry Pratchett. I'm not sure about you, but I always appreciate artwork that is included in novels and I have to say that Paul Kidby's illustrations are my favourite.

I decided to have a go at my totally favourite dragon by Paul Kidby and you can see the result below.
I wonder who is your favourite illustrator. Have you tried to recreate their work?

Happy crafting!

Coloured heart with embossed white backgrounds

Happy Saturday!
I hope you have a fantastic day.
I need to confess. I really struggle with monochromatic cards and the technique I call 'less is more', therefore, I challenged myself to create these cards using only embossing folders, one die set and one stamp. I heat embossed the heart and coloured them using Spectrum Noir Aqua markers. Here are the embossing I used from Crafter's Companion: Brocade, Venetian Lace and Seamless Wave.
What do you think? I'm still not convinced ...

Happy crafting!

Tropical cards using stamps from Creative Stamping issue 85

Happy Thursday!
I hope you have a fantastic day.

Recently, I received my subscription of Creative Stamping magazine issue 85 and the stamps are so amazing. I created 3 cards using the set and coloured the images with ZIG markers.

Which one is your favourite?

'Have a wonderful day' cards

Happy Sunday!
I hope you have a wonderful day :) which is actually the theme for today's cards. 
I used Concord and 9th 'Wonderful florals' stamp set and my scraps of paper to create rainbows.
It was a lot of fun :) I really recommend this technique :)

Happy crafting!

Rainbow flower cards

Happy Tuesday!
I hope you have a wonderful day.
I love colouring flowers when we watch films or shows with my husband. 
Recently, I've been inspired by great YouTube videos by Jennifer McGuire and Laura Bassen where they used rainbow colours for their cards and I love their ideas.

I used Aqua markers by Spectrum Noir to colour in the flowers and strips of coloured card to create the rainbow effect.
Which one is your favourite?

Happy crafting!
