Down In The Dumps

Hi All!
Well today I have the privilege of a guest spot on Sketch Saturday representing their sponsor for the week: Mo Manning.
I decided to use this little beauty which you may remember as being the subject of my "Lyras vs. Prismacolor" post. This is the lyra girl. :-)

Gorgeous card and using an image from Mo, my favorite images to use. Just managed to buy two of her stamps when I was away, so I will enter this challenge and have a go at winning 3 Mo images (Great stuff).
Have a nice Saturday Dorcas, Debbiexx

As fabulous as ever, Dorcas. A beautiful card. Love the colours you chose as well as your colouring of course.

Hehehe...I love this card! Such a darling Mo image...and you KNOW how much I love your coloring...and when it's done on kraft paper...mwahhhh! Tres magnifique! I love visiting your blog...always brings a smile to my face...especially when I KNOW you color on kraft paper just for me! You DO, right?! hehehe! Hugs. Pat

Hi Dorcas, that is such a sweet card! Love that image coloured on kraft paper and the DP makes it such a cheerful and happy card!
Thanks you for your sweet comment on my baby card. I appreciate your concern for my friend on the subject of the stamped images she gave me, but I beg to disagree. I would be a different matter is she would sell the images and make a profit out of that. That is not the case here, nor is there a swap going on. In this case I would compare it to a book I have bought and lending that out to a friend to read. There is nothing illegal about that either. On the other hand I totally agree on the angel policy for digi stamps. If I buy a digi stamp I would never hand the image through to another person. I realise it is all a narrow line on what is or is not proper, but I do believe that as long as it does not happen on large scale (like f.i. in the swap clubs you see nowadays), there is nothing wrong with this and I also think that there is no legal way of stopping this.
Have a great weekend, hugs Frea

Your card is a sweetie. Love your work on kraft. You are a specialist in coloring on Kraft. Last week I gave a link to your blog to one of my followers. She asked me a tutorial about coloring on Kraft. And because I'm just a starter with that way of coloring on Kraft I gave her your link.
She was very happy with your tutorial.
So, please go on inspirating us.
Hugs Marianne

Adorable! Love the yummy papers as well as the buttons and ribbon too! Hysterical sentiment too! There are soooo many fun ones you could do with this image! They have me laughing anyway! I see the whole sharing thing is hitting some nerves! Guess it is best to be Switzerland!

What a super amazing card! I am always telling you how much I love your coloring; and each time I see your work makes me want to try coloring on craft with my prisma's. Not quite there yet but I do like to drool over your work:0)You always know exactly where to add those great buttons.

Thanks for playing along with us at Top Tip Tuesday this week:0)

This card is so cute! I had to look up the sentiment - now I know, what it means ;-)
It´s so fascinating to me that you always find a matching sentiment!
To me this image is very, very cute, but I don´t think that I would have ever found a proper sentiment and a intended purpose for this card! -->Fascinating!
Have a nice week, Dorcas!

Tracey Brossart said...

Dorcas, finally got a chance to stop by and thank you for joining us this week and being our guest designer! Absolutely fabulous job and I really love your coloring on the kraft paper! Adorable little button too oh and that sentiment is too funny! Matches!

Had a look at you coloring pencils post and I had no idea about the Lyras pencils...I use Prisma. The only thing I don't like about the Prisma is they break alot while sharpening and the point doesn't stay...I may have to find the Lyras and give them a try! :D

Big Hugz,
xx Tracey xx

Shanna Shands said...

OMGosh I love your coloring. I have Prisma pencils but I have yet to try and color with them!

Grenouille Greetings said...

I so wish I could get the hang of colouring on Kraft with pencils. I tried it a couple of time but I just can't seem to make it work. You do such a marvelous job, Dorcas! This is no exception and your paper and design are lovely too! Hugs, Lesley
