Earth n Art

I'm joining Do Al(l) Kreatives today as a guest designer for their mid month inspiration on creating your own background.  I'm also sponsoring their current challenge.


The image has been coloured with Copics to match the background I created.  I've then fussy cut her to add to the canvas.

The background was created using stencils, modelling paste and crackle paste the create the texture.  I then added all the flowers before painting it all white with gesso.  Once I'd done this I then started to use two coloured spray paints from DecoArt in blue and deep pink and a water mister.

Once dried I started to paint the highlights onto the flowers and used some gold to highlight some of the words.  The resin butterfly was added after this and I've used the same coloured paints to add a little colour to it.

Once the canvas was dry I added the fussy cut image and the sentiment from Scrapiniec which had also been coloured with Copics.

Hope you like my inspiration for today.

Thanks for taking the time to pop by today

Braided Hair



The image I'm using for my inspiration this week is Butterfly Hair you can find it here.  I've coloured her with Copic using the same colours as the one you can see in my shop.

Here's our sketch for this week


My design papers are from First Edition and I've also used some black card.
Around the image I've used a few Rhine stones for interest. There's a section of ric rac that you can find here at The Ribbon Girl.

The flower and leaf I've had in my stash for ages, I think I may have got it from Hobby Craft as part of a set.
The friends sentiment is part of a wood chip one from Scrapiniec.

Hope you like my inspiration for today and we see you at the challenge

Painting Autumn Colours


Searching through Wendy's images I thought this would be perfect.  I've coloured them image as though the girl is colouring her image in autumn colours too :)


Practicing my colouring with Copics I decided to do a CAS style card.  To keep the centres of the flowers bright white I've used a white gel pen.  Scattered around the image are a couple of sequins and a few Rhine stones.

The design paper is from Santoro and has been cut with a Die-Namics die.

I've finished off my autumn theme with a sentiment from Make It Crafty coloured with Copics.

Prize:
£10 voucher from Polkadoodles

Mary has used some of these production on her beautiful creation this month.



I've coloured the image with Copics and a white gel pen for the shine in the bauble.  The image has been distressed with Black Soot ink from Tim Holtz and I've sprinkled embossing enamel around the edges too.  Behind the image is a section of the papers cut with a Spellbinders die.

My design papers are a combination of UHK Gallery, First Edition, Maja Design and LemonCraft.

Here's a close up of the inside of the easel card.  The back section has labels cut with a Spellbinders die.  The front section has some Isabelle White lace and pearl string from The Ribbon Girl.  Full details of the products are at the bottom of the post.

I've actually got myself a bow tie tool now - yay makes it much easier.  The red ribbon has a snowflake and glitter button attached with some twine.  Towards the left of the card you can see some more of the twine, holly leaves, roses, daisy and along the bottom below the image is the Rosa Bianca Lace.

I finished the card off with a few pearls and a XOXO sentiment from Make It Crafty coloured with Copics.

Sneaking another one in

Here's another sneaky Christmas card.  I need to start seriously about making some more.  I always do the panic thing nearer the time.

This image is from Anne Fenton, our sponsor at Outlawz Sketch this month.
I've coloured the image with Copics and cut it out with a Spellbinders die.

Here's our sketch for this week.


My design papers are from Lemoncraft and First Edition.

The section behind the image that looks like it might be ribbon is actually a section of paper from Lemoncraft.


No embellishments for this one, just a wood chip sentiment from Make It Crafty coloured with Copics.

Hope you like my inspiration for this week and we see you at the challenge.
