B is for…..

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

A few years back (yes years) I purchased large Chipboard letters to decorate for my girls but never did anything with them. Then about 12 months or so ago I thought about them again and actually purchased designer papers for them. Well they got stored away too until about 2 weeks ago. I’ve made a start on 2 of the 4 anyway and today I’m going to share what I’ve done with my youngest daughter, Brooke’s, letter.


I’ve used the Capture the Moment image from The Paper Shelter and coloured her to coordinate with the gorgeous paper. I’ve added a few flowers to embellish.

I’ve printed my image onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair - E57, E55, E53, E51; Clothes - YG95, YG93, YG91, B24, B23, B21, YR23, YR21, YR20; Camera - C6, C4, C2, C00.

Here’s a close up of the image.

Hi Nikki this is gorgeous I love how you have decorated the letter. Thank-you for joining us at the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge 18 “Anything Goes”. Hugs Jackie DT

Ahhhh Nikki, you never cease to amaze me with your creativeness. I love the idea of taking the first letter of my daughter's name and doing this for her. It would have a wonderful place on her dresser and being that we no longer live in the same town, I think she might like looking at what her mum made just for her. This is fabulous and you have inspired me!!! I adore the image and your coloring is gorgeous! Hugs, Gail
