Kit & Clowder September pencils class

I've been subscribing to the Kit & Clowder classes for a couple months but hadn't taken the time to just sit down with them and colour. I was sick last week and have been recovering this weekend, so it was a great time to do no stress colouring. I opened up the September pencils class and, following with Alyce, I made loveliness with this month's focus on flowers

The Kit & Clowder classes are well worth the price. Not only are they heaps more detailed than most Youtube videos (she colours along with you, most of it in real time), but Alyce gives a lot of encouragement as well. As a subscriber you can also get one on one help from her for any issues you might be having. http://www.kitandclowder.com/

Hope - double embossing

My brother was diagnosed with brain cancer last summer. He is in my thoughts often. Since his diagnoses, cancer related stamps call to me. So often cards and stamps for cancer are orientated toward breast cancer but there are sadly so many other cancers, too. The colour for brain cancer is grey, I added the blues as accents for a more masculine look.

This card features stamps by Unity Stamp Company and double embossing.

Colour My World - Watercolour pencil, Distress Crayon, and Perfect Pearls

The sly wink of this little magical owl made me think of a rainbow bursting from a cloud 'cause rainbows are one of the most beautiful bits of magic in the world.

The stamps in this card are from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. The cloud die is Craftin' Desert Divas. The rainbow is Distress Crayon and sprinkled over everything is the magic of Perfect Pearls. (Well, I think they're magical *grin*)
