Maddie with Glasses with Leah

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well :)  Are you enjoying the sunshine where you are?  We finally have sunshine!  And I am just dying to sit in the sun and read a book :)

So I have created a bookmark featuring Maddie with Glasses and I have colored her with watercolor pencils :)


This is one of my most favorite dolls :)  Maybe because I'm a book worm :P


This girl is a lot of fun to color, and I know I have colored her quite a few times for cards, but I especially like her on a book mark.  What do you think?


If you would like to see more details about this project, please visit my blog at odetopaper.blogspot.ca.

That's all from me for now, stay tuned for more inspiration from our talented design team, and join us for the monthly challenges.  They always start on the first Monday of the month and they run all month long!  And as always, the theme is Anything Goes!  See you soon!

Emma with Anchor

Karen N here from Craftily Yours, providing some inspiration for YOU to join the Paper Nest Dolls Anything Goes Challenge!  We LoVe to see what you create!  It's summer-fun time, so I decided to create a summer / water sports inspired card:



So sweet, this doll with her anchor, aptly named, Emma with Anchor.  I colored her with the following Copics:

Skin:  E000, E01, E11, R21, BV20
Hair:  E21, E23, E25
Clothes:  Y13, Y15, Y18, R24, R27, R29, BG72, BG75, BG78
Anchor:  C1, C3, C5

The background is created with Distress Oxide inks.  (LoVe them!)  And I added a sentiment from the General Sentiments set from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I also added some lace, ribbon and enamel dots.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Sun N Fun Emma

Cara here today with my first inspiration post for you!

Today I am sharing the adorable Sun N Fun Emma from the May release, she is so sweet and I adore her Flamingo, there are so many ways you could use this set.


 I coloured her up with my spectrum Noir pencils and added some Wink of Stella to her beautiful Flamingo.


I kept the rest of the card simple which is a change for me, just adding some pretty Summer Themed papers and the perfect sentiment.

I hope this has inspired you and would love to see you come and join our challenge ... it anything goes so easy peasy!

See you there!

Rainy Days

Karen N here from Craftily Yours.  Happy Saturday, Y'all!

Northern California (where I'm from) had a whole lotta rain this year, so I thought I'd create a rain-inspired card for my inspiration post over at Paper Nest Dolls!

This sentiment-less card could be used for quite a few occasions.  I used the plain version of Rainy Day Emma to create this:



I super love that sweet frog and that sweet duckling!  I colored with Copics:

Hair:  E21, E23, E25
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R20
Outfit:  Y000, Y00, Y02, R81, R83, BG53, BG57, BG10
Frog:  G14, G16
Duck:  Y15, Y18, YR14
Ground:  BG01, BG02

The rest of the card is a mixture of papers, flowers, lace and jelly dots I had in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours,

Karen
