New Kit Club at La-La Land Crafts

Happy Tuesday everyone!  This is my first ever post for the first ever La-La Land Crafts Club kit release.
If you don't know what the club is hop over here where all will be explained.  I'm super excited to have the chance to work with the club kits, honestly they're fantastic! All the stamps and dies are exclusive to the Club and won't be generally available until a year after the kit release.

This is August's kit and sadly you won't be able to get this one now if you haven't already subscribed, but you can still sign up in time for September's kit and it's going to be just as exciting.

For those of  you who were lucky enough to sign up for this one I have a couple of projects to share today by way of inspiration and for those of you not signed up yet, this will give you an idea of the type of items you'll receive and what you can do with them. Be warned this post contains photos of 2 projects, so it's pretty photo heavy!

So for my first project, I coloured up Marci in distress inks.

All the images and dies used on both projects come in the kit, apart from the large dies used to shape the cards.
Ribbon and lace are from The Ribbon Girl and the papers are from a LotV 8 x 8 pad Beach Bliss.
The gorgeous sparkly starfish is from The Handcrafted Card Company and the seashells are from Live and Love Crafts.

I've popped the distress ink colours I used below for you.

Distress Inks
Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye
Hair Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Peacock Feathers, Old Paper
Tail and Top: Peacock Feathers, Old Paper, Antique Linen, Brushed Cordroy, Black Soot, Walnut Stain
Shell: Antique Linen, Old Paper, Peacock Feathers, Tattered Rose, Aged Mahogony

For my second project  I went for a completely different style and coloured Sitting Mermaid Marci with my Copics, this is my first try at doing this kind of stylised colouring, making Marci look like she has some scales, I'm pretty chuffed with the way it turned out.
I have just realised the on the lower 3 pics I took the tag out with the bow attached, intending to photograph it with the card so that you can see it and I completely forgot to put it in the photos!  It's cut out from the Pion Design Shoreline Treasures collection Tags sheet and has a seashell on it.
I thought the paper was perfect for this card and even used a piece to decorate the inside to match.

I've listed the Copic colours I used here:

Skin: E11, E21, E00, E000, B000, B91, B95, B99, G000, YG95
Hair and Tail: G000, B000, B99, B97, B95, B93, B91, YG99, YG95, YG91
Shells and Flowers: E40, E42, E44, R000, R11, R22

Well that's all from me, hopefully I'll be back on Friday with my posts for Dies to Die for and A Creative Romance, but this cold I've been suffering with has struck me down with conjunctivitis also, so I'm very behind with my makes as it's slow going, hopefully I'll get finished in time.
