It’s inspiration time for those of you who love to colour over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog. This month, the theme is “Anything Goes” so the only thing we have to worry about is getting crafty! Let’s just say that while I like a good challenge theme, “anything goes” is one of my favourite!
For this cute fall inspired card, I decided to use a new set from Christy called Fun Animals.
This set is filled with all sorts of cute animals and great little sentiments to go with each. You can mix and match them, add little details like the nut I used or even hearts and party hats. This set is a great value – you could create any theme of card you could imagine for any time of the year! If you love little fur babies, this set is for you!
I coloured up the cute squirrel with my Copics, focusing mostly on the warmer browns (E21/E23 for the body and E13/E15/E17/E18 for the tail). I actually didn’t blend all the colours together on purpose to create a bit more of a cartoon look to this cutie with some harder edges for the shadows. Together with the browns and oranges in the background paper (which happened to be from the scrap bin), I love that this is a card is a bit more on the fall tones.
But remember, this month, the theme is Anything Goes, so if you are not ready to embrace fall, grab your pastels or brights and create something that, well…isn’t “fall”. Whatever you decide, I hope you do get crafty and upload a card to the challenge. It’s always fun to see what you come up with.

Hi everyone! I have an apology to make! I am a week behind on this post. We went away on vacation last week and for some reason, I thought that I could have this one up after we got back. Anyway, I was wrong – but I still wanted to get this cutie posted and to let you know that it’s challenge time over at Tiddly Inks stamps once again. We are running challenges once a month right now, so there is still plenty of time to get your creation together and posted – even if I am a week behind! 😉
This month, the challenge is a pretty colour challenge. This challenge, called Autumn Glow focuses on this pretty colour selection. As always, remember that challenges themes are just for inspiration – it is a-okay to venture off in ant direction that the challenge sends you to – perhaps it makes you think of a particular stamp image rather than particular colours. Whatever you decide – we can’t wait to see it!
For my card, I worked with a new image called Flower Fairy For You.
This cute Wryn image gives you lots of opportunities to play with colour combinations between the dress, flowers and ever the cute pup! I coloured the image up with Copics, focusing mostly on the R81/R83 combination for the dress, which seemed like a more muted pink that went with the colour samples. And while there wasn’t any yellow in the original colours, I though the orange tones for the shadows pulled it all together.
So, I better head off. I have some other projects I need to get photographed and up on the blog too – apparently summer has become more about getting a bit behind rather than catching up and getting ahead of the game. The good news is that I have some great summer memories to show for it!
Hope you are enjoying the summer! Can’t wait to see any creations you decide to create for the challenge. Thanks for stopping by!
It’s July 4th, so very happy Fourth of July wishes to my neighbors to the south. Up here in Canada, we just celebrated our 150th birthday, so I decided to take this month’s Tiddly Inks challenge as a little ode to both countries.
If you haven’t seen the challenge yet, make sure you pop on over to the blog, but this month, it’s all about being independence! And while you can interpret that in all sorts of ways, I couldn’t ignore my countries birthday, and today’s special one for the US. So I decided to colour up one of my favourite digis called “Minnie” with some Canadian colours – good old red and white (with some tourquoise glasses to match my daughter’s), and then top her off with some fun red, white and blue colours from Doodlebug’s Yankee Doodle collection.
I think it’s a fun, playful card that is perfect for any occasion…like posting on my blog on July 4th!
I know the weather is beautiful right now, but we hope you will consider joining us for this month’s challenge! Remember, with a great, general theme like “independence” you can go in all sorts of directions with your project. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Hello crafty peeps! It’s the first Tuesday of the month, so that means it’s challenge time over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog. That also means that I get to share some inspiration for this month’s theme – Road Trip!
Now, I am just coming off of a week off of work, so you would think that I might have road trip story up me sleeve. The truth is that this little holiday didn’t really include any such adventures. So, for inspiration for this challenge, I tried to think about where I would have liked to have gone…and that simply included a place that was warm enough that I could have some fun swimming with my girls! Give that, out came the adorable new digi from Tiddly Inks called Wryn Beach Party
Yup – if I could have, I would have pulled out the flip flops and floaties and driven somewhere where they would have been useful. But since that wasn’t the case, I grabbed my Copics and made use of those instead! Matching the image to some Pebbles Fun in the Sun paper, creating this little card was enough to take me away – if not in body, definitely in spirit!
Now it’s your turn. So get crafty (and don’t forget to consider the theme in your work). I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Thanks for stopping by!
