Teal Roses

Our awesome sponsor for October at Outlawz Sketch is Aurora Wings!

I've chosen to use Weeping Rose for my inspiration today.


The images has been coloured with Copics.  I had to do it in a bit of a rush (I got a bit behind with my hols last week) so I've given it a colour wash and added lots of texture to the petals.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks


I found the perfect design papers to go with the image.  They're from Studio Light.


I've also used some black card.  I tried to add the embellies as per the sketch to my card but it just kept taking it away from the beautiful image and gorgeous design papers.  So I decided to go plain without them for this time :)

Thanks for popping by for a look today

Love it when a plan comes together!!

Our Facebook Challenge at All Dressed Up this month is Autumn / Halloween.  I've been wanting to colour up this image Bon Voyage again for a while, but was having trouble working out how I could fit it into this challenge.


I was off last week and looking at my Kit & Clowder colouring classes.  I spotted an autumn one and then some leaves which were a bonus colouring class.  Then I got an idea.  Colouring leaves like a mad thing I did loads and fussy cut them out.  I've used them on my two autumn DT inspiration cards this month.

All the colouring was done with Copics.


My design paper is from Lili of the Valley and I've used some black card.  Only other thing I added were a couple of birds into my background with a pen.

Don't forget we also have a blog challenge at All Dressed Up, and you can see more inspiration the Facebook Group.

Just a little autumn thing

It's been a while since little Finnian has had an airing.  I thought I'd use him in my inspiration for our latest challenge at SheepSki Designs Blog Challenges.  Our theme for this month is Autumn.



He's been coloured with Copics and I've scattered some embossing enamel down one side of the rough path I'd sketched in.

The leave which I've overloaded over the last few days (you'll also see them in my next card) are from a bonus Kit & Clowder Colouring Class.  I fussy cut them after I'd coloured them.


My design paper is from Lili of the Valley and Joy Crafts and I've also used some black card.  The Autumn sentiment was cut out using letter dies.

My final addition are four tiny wooden hearts made into butterflies.

Hope you like my inspiration for the challenge

A Little Hello

We're sharing some more inspiration today with Wendy's new release images from All Dressed Up.



After colouring the image I decided to do a vintage styled card.  The image was coloured with Copics, cut it a Spellbinders die, the edges distressed with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz and then two different types of embossing enamel scattered around the edges.

My papers are fro Lemoncraft, distressed and cut with a Fantasy Die.


Behind the image is a section of cream lace, my white paper flowers and leaves were also distressed with Vintage photo ink.  Finally i've added a sentiment from Make It Crafty coloured with Copics and some pearl gems.

You can see some more inspiration today from the Dressy Girls on the blog and in the Facebook Group.

A Favourite Returns

All Dressed Up are sponsoring Outlawz Sketch this month.  I've used one of my favourites that's back available in the shop called Party Frock


I've coloured the image with Copics then fussy cut her.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks.


I've used design paper from Lemoncraft, 13Arts and some black card.

The panel behind the image has been cut with a Spellbinders die.



To finish the card I've used some teal ribbon and a sentiment from Make It Crafty coloured with Copics.

Thanks for taking a look today.  We hope to see you at the challenge

After work shopping trip

That's what this image reminds me of :)

I'm honoured to be a guest designer with Rabisco Challenge this month.  Their sponsor is Cute as a Button.  The image is called Christmas Shopping.


I've coloured the image with Copics and framed it with some black card and doodling.


My design paper is from 13Arts, I've used some matching satin ribbon my neighbour was kind enough to give me, a couple of blue paper flowers and a sentiment from Scrapiniec coloured with Copic.

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