Little Miss Muffet Anything Goes & DT Call & FREEBIE!

Hello all! Me again:-), this time to tell you about everything that is going on at Little Miss Muffet Challenges! The theme for the current challenge is Anything Goes and you can use any image you want! Plus there is a DT call so if you want to work with lovely ladies and have fun with adorable images, now is the time:-) Speaking of adorable images, there is a freebie! I was very excited when I saw that freebie named Saffron, because she is one of the Sugar 'n Spice Dolls and I just LOVE those dolls! I was so excited that I made 2 cards LOL!!! Thank you Barbara for inviting me and letting me play:-)!

Bonjour! Oui, c'est encore moi, cette fois pour vous parler de tout ce qui se passe chez Little Miss Muffet! Le challenge est on ne peut plus facile, le thème étant "Tout va", et vous pouvez utiliser les images que vous voulez! En plus, il y a appel à DT, alors si vous voulez "travailler" avec des dames adorables et vous amuser avec des images craquantes, c'est le moment! En parlant d'images craquantes, il y a en plus un freebie! J'étais super excitée de voir ce freebie, car c'est une adorable demoiselle de la gamme des Sugar 'n Spice Dolls et je les ADORE! Tellement contente, que j'ai même fait 2 cartes:-)!!! Merci Barbara de m'avoir invitée!

First card using Saffron, coloured with Copics... Première carte avec Saffron...

For the rendering of texture on Saffron's hat and muffet, credit goes to Barbara, I coloured the white like her:-)! Pour le rendu de la texture sur le blanc du chapeau et manchon de Saffron, je me suis largement inspirée de la colorisation de Barbara:-)!

Then I thought I would make another little card using exactly the same scene and keeping the colours the same but using pencils this time, for a different style... Here is Saffron, coloured with Polychromos:-)...

Make It Crafty news and MIC Challenge:-)

Hello all! Here is the third (out of 3) post... I would like to tell you about the current Make It Colourful Challenge, but before that, HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW MAKE IT CRAFTY STORE? Zoe has completely redesigned it, it is so nice to navigate and there are lots of gorgeous coloured previews of the images for inspiration! And if I were you, I would take a look at the NEW STUFF in the digital stamps section... I'm not telling you more, I will let you see for yourselves! Go HERE, you won’t be disappointed!!! Aren’t they gorgeous:-)?

Bonjour! Le 3e message (sur 3) que je voulais publier... Avant de vous parler du challenge de Make It Colourful, avez-vous vu la NOUVELLE boutique MAKE IT CRAFTY? Zoe a tout refait, il y a plein de belles images en couleur pour nous donner des idées et la boutique est vraiment conviviale! Et si j'étais vous, j'irais jeter un oeil aux nouveautés, THE NEW STUFF, dans les images digitales... Je ne vous en dis pas plus, voyez plutôt par vous-mêmes! Vous ne serez pas décus!!! Alors, trop belles, non:-)?

We are having a great challenge at Make It Colourful, which is to recolour an image from earlier in the year and share both images! And you have until January 11th to play, no reason to join us:-)!
Le challenge de Make It Colourful est de colorier une image que vous avez déjà coloriée cette année et de partager les deux images, pour comparer:-)! Vous avez jusqu'au 11 janvier pour participer!
I chose to recolour a special image, one I used for Zoe's special monthly challenges in July 2011 to celebrate Make It Crafty's first birthday, challenges in which I had so much fun participating! And also because I think this image is perfect to celebrate the new store:-)! The challenge was to use the colours of Make It Crafty, and I thought it would be nice to include the logo somewhere, that's why, with Zoe's permission, I included the logo in my image. Here is the image I coloured back in July 2011...
J'ai choisi de recolorier une image que j'avais utilisée pour les challenges spéciaux de juillet 2011 auxquels j'avais adoré participer, pour fêter l'anniversaire de Make It Crafty. Il fallait utiliser les couleurs du logo, et j'avais trouvé sympa l'idée de l'inclure dans mon image... Voici l'image version juillet 2011...

JULY 2011

And the recoloured image, December 2011, for which I used the same colours + 4 other markers... I did not look at the original when I recoloured to avoid being influenced:-)
Et l'image coloriée en décembre 2011, avec les mêmes couleurs + 4 autres feutres... Je n'ai pas regardé l'original quand j'ai colorié mon image à nouveau pour ne pas être influencée:-)


I took a picture of both images together to have exactly the same conditions and light:-)... My recoloured image is on the left... J'ai pris une photo des 2 ensemble pour avoir exactement les mêmes conditions d'éclairage et pouvoir faire une vraie comparaison... La nouvelle image est à gauche...

Image: Make It Crafty Fifi
Coloured with Copics on Make It Colour Blending Card

Vous pouvez voir toutes les images (progrès:-)?) de la DT dans la galerie ICI! Vous avez jusqu'au 11 janvier pour nous rejoindre! Merci de votre visite, j'attends la visite du technicien avec impatience, puisqu'il m'a fallu 24 HEURES pour arriver à publier ce message... Bisous,

Phone and internet issues... AARRRRGGGHHHH

Hi all! Just a quickie to let you know I have no phone at the moment and only seem to have internet access for what seems like 30 seconds in a row, then nothing... I can't go blogging or write the emails I want to write, which is REALLY getting on my nerves and upsetting me, and I can't finish my Christmas shopping either LOL! I guess it is due to the bad weather we have had but have no idea when things are going to get better, fingers crossed it is very soon!! Posting while the lights are green on my box...
Pas de téléphone du tout et internet juste par intermittence, je publie tant que je vois les lumières vertes sur ma box, avant que tout s'éteigne à nouveau... Moi aussi je suis verte, pas de visite, pas d'emails, et pas de shopping de Noël... J'espère que ça va rentrer dans l'ordre très vite... Bref, ne vous inquiétez pas... Bisous à toutes,
Hugs to all,
Delphine xx
