We are a small family Craft business that came about when as a card making family, my daughters and young granddaughters and I that is! Not our men who do not make cards, although my husband has had a go....Could never find the stamps and crafts that we had seen advertised!

We love the different ranges of stamps and crafts that we get from all over the world and we hope you will love them too....

New ATG challenge TTCRD Nikki Burnette

Hi everyone!!
Today Its time for a  new weekly challenge over at TTCRD!!
The sponsor this week is Nikki Burnette
I have used I wonderful image that calls
Nikki Burnette

Prize: 3 Digital images

My name is Nikki Burnette and I am the artist of all the artwork that you see on this website! I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio, but I currently reside in Columbus, OH with my loving husband of 5 years, our daughter Ariana and our two adorable cats: Jensen and Willow. My daughter and kitties provide constant inspiration for me!

I have been an artist my entire life, but began my professional fantasy art career when I began to sell ACEOs on eBay in 2006. You may have heard of them, but in case you haven't, ACEO stands for Art, Cards, Editions and Originals. They are miniature paintings measuring 2.5x3.5" and are highly collectible. I was fortunate to be well received in the ACEO community and started to grow a fan base. People started asking for originals and prints in bigger sizes and they also wanted a variety of products featuring my artwork. So I started to branch out and over the past 8 years it has turned into something that I feel so fortunate to have now. My art is collected worldwide and I'm licensed with a variety of different companies. I have also been lucky enough to be published in a book and a few magazines and online publications. I also attend fairs and conventions across the Southeast and have recently had the privilege of having my artwork on the cover of the ImagiCon 2010 program cover!

I have been asked before "Why fantasy art? And this is my response:

Fantasy art is where my heart lies. I love being able to escape the reality of our world for even just a few hours and enter a new fantasy realm where witches play tricks on Halloween Night, fairies fly around the sweet smelling rosebuds, and mermaids swim gracefully through the water with their dolphin friends. 

I mainly use watercolor and ink to create my fantasy fairies, witches, vampires, pirates, steampunk and mermaids and offer my art in many different sizes including ACEO (2.5x3.5"), 5x7", and 8x10". I turn my original art into a variety of items to offer you a fun way to experience my art! I create hand-embellished limited edition prints, custom paintings, magnets, stickers, bookmarks, pocket mirrors, buttons, coloring pages and more! These are all made in my studio and shipped to you by me, the artist! 

I feel so privileged to be able to do something that I enjoy so much every day and am thrilled that you have taken the time to read a little bit more about me and my art! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Turtorial for Copic Europe

Hi Friends!!

This is my first post for Copic Europa, and If you want to see what I have been doing
 for Copic Europe you are welcome to  the Copic Europa blog just click at the link below

Turtorial in the Copic Europe Blog

 Im showing you how I use the gray markers for some shading
 and get some deept in the colouring.

Its great to use this if you dont have so many markers, maybe you just have 2 red markers and you want to have some more deept in your colouring, use a gray markers to them and you got a great colouring.

 If you are New in this copic world and dont have all copic Markers, dont some greys and you can colour really nice stuff, just with a few markers.
I have almost every markers BUT I think the grey-familiy is great to use anyway:0))

I have used an Image from Emmanuelle Colin for show you how I colour this face,
 with Cool gray markers.

Welcome to the Copic Europa Blog for check an turtorial I made for you
