Butterflies Flutterby

I have been so busy at work that I haven't posted for quite a while. I hope the wait has been worth it with the following card I made for a lovely lady that I work with, Heidi.
I have used Tilda with Hawaiian flower and have mounted her on the stone path. I only have the colours for Tilda which were
Skin- E000, E00, R20
Hair- E41, 43, 44
Dress- YR00, 04, 07
Sleeves- YR21, 23, 24
Flower- Y00, 08, 17
Socks- W1
I love the butterfly paper which is from BoBunny and is called 'Gabrielle'. I actually have cut a circle in the DP paper and then used accetate to attach the path and Tilda to. I then used Magic Mount to create a foregroung and background. This seemed to work so well. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and I love the beautiful metal butterfly I picked up from my local scrapbooking supply store. I am entering this card into the following challenges.

Luka with Truck

I'm not sure how this happened but I actually colured this Luka in when I visited the Copic stand at The Melbourne Paperific Show with my friend Alethea. However I went to put this card together and I realised that its coloured the same as the one on the La- La Land packet. I am asuming that because Copics are also the main distributor that they provided the colours to match the image on the packet so I am not taking the credit for colour selection but I did do the colouring. I made this card to celebrate my son James' sixth birthday. He has a red fire truck that he loves and this Luka reminds me of him. I am not sure who the DP is but it works so well with this image, I also love the little truck brad. I have also shown you the inside of my card, can you see the super cute bolt stickers? I hope James loves this card as much as I do. I am also entering it in the La- La Land Birthday card celebration competition.
I have used the following colours to colour Luka
Pants- B24, B32
Jacket- YG91, YG95
Shoes- B95, B97
Shirt- YR21, YR23
Truck- R35, R37, W3, W5
Hair- E31, E33, E35
Skin- E00, E50

Sittin' On the Dock of the Bay

I love this song by Otis Redding and when I saw that this was the challenge over at MDUC I was very excited. I saw Kaiser had realesed a new range last week called "Hunt and Gather' one of the papers is covered in fish and I knew I had to track it down to go with Fishing Edwin. I started colouring him last night and when I saw this challenge this morning, well it all fell into place. So here is Edwin sitting on the dock of the bay!I am also entering this card in the Just Magnolia challenge which is Holiday Fun. Fishing is my eldest sons favourite thing to do when we are camping so I am actually going to give this card to him.
I have used the following Copics to colour Edwin
Pants- B95, B97
Button- E43
Skin- E000, E00, R20
T-shirt- C1, C3
Rod- E25
Float- R27, R37
Water- B000, clear Spica
Poles- E31, E33
I used the new Kaiser paper Fossick and the DP behind Edwin is also from the Kaiser 'Bird Society'  Paper pad. The tickets are also from Kaiser. I asked my husband for a fishing hook and he had silver, but Tom had red in his fishing box, perfect. I was also really pleased with the pier that I drew myself for Edwin to sit on. I also loved the way my water turned out it looks like ripples!! I also added clear Spicas which is really hard to see on the photo but it looks amazing in real life. So I am also entering this card in the Mad For Marker Challenge which is to use Spica.
