Sweet as......

It's new release inspiration day at All Dressed Up.  For my inspiration today I'm using the very cute image As Sweet as Melon, you can find it here in Wendy's shop.


I've coloured the image with Copics with bright melon colours, offsetting with a lovely cream and green spotted dress.


Creating a CAS styled card to showcase the image I've used three papers to match the melon colours red and black card and some green design paper from Studio Light.

My sentiment is made up to match the image name from Tim Holtz stickers.

You can find more inspiration on the challenge blog and in the Facebook group today.

Coffee!!

This month SheepSki Designs are sponsoring the ladies, so I get to use any image I want :)

I tried to go with images I'd already printed and found Coffee & Cake just waiting to be coloured.  You can find it here in the shop.


I coloured the image with Copics and used a white Acrylic paint pen.

This is our sketch for the month.


I've used design papers from Maja Design and Lemoncraft.  The image, turquoise design paper and coffee label have all been cut with dies.


There are just a few pearl and a turquoise gem to finish off, the sentiment is. woodchip one I've had in my stash for ages.

Thanks for popping by today, we hope to see you at the challenge.

Winter Walkies

Today is our new challenge at All Dressed Up in the Facebook Group.  This month our theme is SEASONS.

I've chosen an image called Christimas Walkies for my inspiration, you can find it here in Wendy's shop.  I'm making an early start on my Christmas cards this year so I've chosen to make a Winter Seasoned card.


I've coloured the image with Copics and used some embossing enamel for snow.


My design paper is from Lemoncraft and I've also used some of my scraps up to make the banner.

Don't forget we also have the challenge blog, you can find it here.

Thanks for popping by today.

Thanks a Bunch

It's new release inspiration day at All Dressed Up.  For my inspiration I have a little shabby chic creation to share.



I've coloured the image with Copics in soft pinks and warm browns.

There's some embossing enamel sprinkled around and a few pink pearls.

 

Behind the image is some design paper from Maja Design, some craft card and fabric gauze.  The papers have all been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.

Final additions are some string (from a clothing tag) and a sentiment (a Tim Holtz sticker).
You can find more inspiration on the challenge blog and in the Facebook group today.

Just Magic.....

This month we have no sponsor so it means I get to play with images I already have :D

I've got quite a few printed, as I was looking through I found this image called Violet Pixie from Sarah Burrier (sadly no longer available from what I can tell).  The shape of her wings made me thing about the sketch flipped on its side.


I coloured her with Copics and then had a chat with Sandra about my "way outness" for the sketch LOL!  We decided it was good because the sketch is the inspiration  and it gives a different perspective on what can be done.

So..... this is our sketch for the month which I've flipped on its side.  The wings are the banner and I've got her a moon as well for the circle.


I decided to fussy cut the image because I wasn't happy with a single layer card which is what I was going with at first.  I found the "moon" which is a geli plate print I did ages ago, using inks and a flower stencil (I so need to get my geli plate back out again).

As I was shuffling through papers I just sat her and the "moon" onto a sheet of black paper.  She was so striking on this I couldn't get any design papers that has the same effect.  So I made my own star background by scattering embossing enamel onto the black card.


I have selected on pice of green design paper from Lemoncraft to go with the greeny theme.  Finally I added a sentiment to the moon using stickers form Tim Holtz.

I so love how this came out :D
