Celebrate - Lion & Elephant Gift set #1 part 2


Hello and a wonderful day. We have had so much rain yesterday, it was really hard for me to get nice pictures of my DT cards. I must mail my stuff back to Magnolia Sweden. sniff sniff and are not able to get new pictures taken. The coloring looks all washed out. The bag was created for Cute Cards Thursday Challenge "Tag it". Below is a group shot of the entire gift set.
I don't know why blogger sometimes does not show up pictures in big when you click on them. I was never able to figure that out. So, just in case it does not work once the posting is up.. here is a shot zoomed into the coloring details.

Last but not least i would like to say thanks to all of you who have left me such kinds a comments on the Shimmerz Blog candy posting. The response to this amazing prize is just fabulous! Thank you ladies!

To decorate the back site of the gift bag i have used the same paper, some stitching and "one in a Million" sentiment stamp.

Papers: Stampin up (Cholate Chip), My Minds Eye (Penny Lane) DCVW (Safari)
Embellishments / Tools: Stampin up, Martha Stewart (Arched Lattice punch), Making Memories
Coloring: Copic Sketch Markers
To color the Elephant i have used lots of Warm Grey makers rather the Cool colors because of the tone of the Designer paper. I stayed with the low numbers so the elephant did not turn out black and used R20 for cheeks blending with C1. Colors for Lion can be found in my posting from yesterday. Airbrushing was done with E51
I would now love to sent you over to dear Linda's blog "Linanna Designs" to take a peek at her fabulous blog candy!

Hey Claudia, it looks fabulous. I adore the new stamps from Magnolia. In your message you ask yourself why Blogger sometimes doesn't show a big picture when you click on it. I know the answer: when you put a picture in your message, it's ok and you will get a large picture when you click on it. But when you move the picture in de message to another place, you can't click on it anymore. This is why we just can click on the upper picture, you didn't have to move that one. The only way you can do this right,is to replace the picture in the html-version. When you don't know how to do this, you can mail me: cobove76@yahoo.com

Billie said...

Hi Claudia,

I thought I'd tell you (in case no one else has) that the reason blogger lets you 'click' on some pictures and not others is because we 'move' them. In other words, if you type all of your text in, then upload your photos and move your pictures around to where you want them, the ones that you move aren't clickable! I've started uploading all of my pictures first, then adding in my text so they're clickable. Try that and see if it works for you. :O)

GREAT gift bag!!! I'm going to have to give this a try. Love it!!!

daisy said...

this looks gorgeuse, must show this to my sister, and maby i can copie you'r idea?!?!

Chris (Wellnifty) said...

Hi Claudia, Stunning set, I love the images and your fantastic colouring.
Re your blogger question, I've found that if I select centre when uploading, you can't click and enlarge the image, if I select left or right, the image becomes clickable and will open larger in a new window.
Hope this helps

Chris xx
