A House For Mo and her DT

You all know how much I love Mo Manning's Images (Mo's Digital Pencil)....so I have spent many, many hours creating this house that is full of Mo's gorgeous little people!

The garden is full of Mo's special people having a party.

It was impossible to get everyone in the photo...so I have taken pics of them individually!

Penelope is on her way to the party at Mo's House.

Mo-Bye Bye is actually on her way in too!

Cody chases his big red balloon....while....

....birthday girl Angelina looks on!

Kai enjoys her cupcake while she swings in the tree .... as ...

Birthday Fairy Lee brings in the giant cupcake ... and ....

Bella brings in the birthday cake for everyone to enjoy!!!!


are four not so happy children!

Toby doesn't want to go to bed....

Tasha wants to join the party ....

Marcus wants to be outside playing....and ....

... Jill is hungry and wants something to eat!

Where would you rather be....INSIDE or OUTSIDE????

Anyway, Mo I hope you and your Dream Team love the house (and all the little beauties in it) as much as I do!

Happy Colouring ... Mandi

New Kaiser Stamps Designed by ME!

I am so excited to share a project with you that I have been working on for a while!

I have been working in conjunction with Kaiser Craft to design a range of mini stamps. The stamps that I have designed for them, have been designed with the Copic addict in mind....like me! And so the stamps are very open, which allows for plenty of space for colouring!

The Christmas stamps have been released, and I have just got my hands on them! I am really excited to share them with you!

Here is a pic of the stamps I designed for them. They are available NOW!!!! So please go and buy them, so they become the best sellers Kaiser has ever had!!!!!

I had a play with the bells and here is my sample...

I will upload more samples as I complete them!

And watch out for more of the mini stamps I designed for Kaiser that will be released throughout 2011!

Understanding Light Source at Copic Oz!

There are so many beautiful images out there to stamp or print and colour using Copics!
One of the biggest questions people have once they ar
e ready to colour is "How do I know where my light source is coming from?".

It is quite important to understand the answer to this question. Pop on over to Copic Oz to understand how to identify your light source.

I have used CC Designs Goth Girl to remind you to enter the Copic Oz Halloween Challenge.

Have a Perfectly Sweet Weekend!

I just couldn't resist buying and colouring another one of Mo's Images. I love each and every one of the cuties that live at Mo's Digital Pencil!

I coloured this little beauty using feather blending. This is the easiest way of combining two colours together that belong to different colour families!

Then made this cute little card to put her on!

I hope you have a Perfectly Sweet Weekend!

My First Floral Card

Anyone who follows Kathy know that Kathy is the floral queen...likewise anyone who follows my work will know that I love doing anything but flowers!

However I have been commissioned to do a feature article on Copic Colouring Techniques for Scrapbook Creations Magazine.

As part of the article I have explained Palette Blending, and I think colouring flowers is the best way to show off this technique. So here you have it ... a floral card from me!!!!

This is the first floral card I have ever posted!

Kath I hope someone has picked you up off the floor! So what do you think???

I may have another floral installment again....some day!!!

Happy Colouring.....Mandi


I absolutely love Kenny K's digital images. I have already posted a couple of projects using his images, but I have to say, I think this is my favourite! Her original name is Devilish Donna, but I have renamed her Angel!

I have used my Copics to colour her, and just loooove the way she has turned out!

Just a little reminder that the Masculine Card or Fathers Day Card Challenge is still running at Copic Oz. You have a few more days to enter your project. The prize is a pack of Atyou Spica Pens!!!

Don't forget to check the side bar on this blog page to see dates for upcoming Copic Classes and Certifications!

Halloween Time at All That Scraps

It is Halloween release time at All That Scraps! Tomorrow a bunch of gorgeous digi images are being released including this oh so cute Goth Girl along with the skull, bat and spider as accessories!

She was just so much fun to colour! Now it is a little bit tricky to see, but the background spider, bat and word art is actually on acetate. I wanted it to look like the bat and spider are hanging in mid-air. It is hard to see because I had to put a white background behind in order to photograph it!

Anyhow, what would Halloween be without a little treat....right!?!

Hop on over the All That Scraps Blog to have a look at the other beautiful creations by the DT... and remember these images will be released TOMORROW!

Happy Colouring .... Mandi

Release Day at All That Scraps!

Today is release day at All That Scraps! The cute CC Designs Back to school digi stamps are now available in the All That Scraps store.

I had such fun putting this card together....

Emma and the Apple are printed onto X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured with my Copics. The wall has been hand drawn and coloured!

I spent some time constructing Emma's little schoolbag. Here is a close-up!

....and there is even has an extra special surprise inside Emma's school bag! Have a look!

Don't forget to check out the ATS Blog as the amazing Digi DT have got some more beautiful creations to inspire you!

Have a great weekend...and happy colouring Mandi xxx

Back to School Time at ATS

It's back to school time at All That Scraps! Christine has designed these gorgeous Back to School Digi Stamps. The set consists of Sugarplum Emma's and 2 matching background images.

I tried my hand at creating a diagonal double pocket card, which I have never done before. I think it worked quite nicely as the pockets provide the perfect "home" for the two bookmarks that I have created using the digi images.

For the bookmarks I used Emma with Pencil and the Pencil and Apple Images. I used X-Press It Blending Card, my Copics to colour and lots of Spica and KindiGlitz to finish off with some shimmer!

The Back to School digi's will be released on August 20th at All That Scraps.
Check out the other beautiful creations from the Digi DT Team here.
Check Back here tomorrow for another Back to School Project!

Happy Colouring .... Mandi xxx
