Hello

Yep - it's about time I finished this image off by making it into a card :D
Sorry it's taken me so long DT stuff, work etc.


She was coloured with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  I think I still need more practice at showing image movement through water but felt I'd got good water depth with the shading at the bottom.

I've turned her into a single later card, adding a few sequins and gems for bling and extra interest.

I finished her off with the perfect sentiment for her name, a #hello sentiment from Scrapienic

Happy crafty lovely people

Flump Cake

It's bee a while since I did a flump and this one is a real cutie from Drawn by Krista our sponsor at Outlawz Sketch for July.

Elephant Holding Cup Cake had been coloured with Copics and polychromos pencils.
I've used two Spellbinders dies to cut the circles

Here's our sketch for today


The design papers I've used are from First Edition, Maja Design and Joy Craft

The middle spotty section is a piece of organza ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. I've added a happy birthday sentiment and a few gems to complete the card.

Hope we see you at the challenge

Chillin' on MyPad


I've printed the image large to showcase it and make a CAS card.  I added a sentiment at the same time as printing.

It's been coloured with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  I decided to do the little frog in bright yellow so he'd show up against the lily pad.

Once I'd put it together I rounded the corners and distressed the edges making a single layer card.

Thanks for taking a look today

Biker Babe

This is the coloured image I did of Harley.  You can find her in my shop on Etsy and don't forget you can get 10% off by quoting SKIANDREA10 :D

I coloured her with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils
When I finished her I wasn't quite sure what to do with her.  I fussy cut her and found she was the perfect size to add to my die tag from Marianne Design BUT in the end I combined the tag with a card - yeah I REALLY was undecided what I wanted to do LOL!!

The design papers a re a mix from Lili of the Valley, Maja Design, 13Arts, and Joy Craft.
I've added a few wood chip elements which I got from Scrap and Craft, there's some lace, pink sparkly paper flowers for a bit of bling, vintage seam binding and pearls.

I think I included bit of everything.

Hope you love my inspiration for today.

Happy Crafting lovelies

New Pad

Here's little Drawn by Krista inspiration for you for this weeks new Outlawz Sketch challenge.  I've used Frog, Lilly Pad, Fly.
The Frog and Fly were printed together and cut out with a Spellbinders circle die.  I then mounted it onto some black card cut with a different Spellbinders die to frame it.  The Lilly I fussy cut to add but wasn't sure where I was going to put it straight away.

All the images have been coloured with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.

Here's our sketch for today

I've flipped mine so the flower border is the mushroom one at the bottom of the card.  I've used a Marianne Design die for this and coloured it with polychrmos pencils.

The design paper is from Joy Craft and if fab for making it look like a background with clouds and sky.

Instead of a zigzag border or ric rac I've just added a new pad sentiment to make it a new home
card :D

Hope you love my inspiration for today

Sloth Day

I've used Copics and polychromos pencils to colour him :)

I so love how he came out.

The sentiment was created at the time I printed him.  All I've done is mounted him onto some black card to frame him.  Nice and simple this time to showcase the image.

Ice Maiden

I'm honoured today to have been invited to be a GDT at Creative Craft Cottage.  Their current challenge theme is Christmas in July.

I coloured Winter Fairy from Fabrika Fantasy in monochromatic colours whilst I was on holiday in the Lake District, but had to wait until I was back to be able to make a card :)
I've used a mixture of Copics, Promarkers and polychromos pencils to achieve this look.

The distressed design papers are from Lili of the Valley and First Edition.  Underneath the image is some crafting gauze, at the bottom of the card some organza rose trim.  I added some pearl gems to the centre of the roses.  The small wooden Christmas sentiment was bought from Hobby Craft last year.

The spray of flowers are a combination of fabric and paper flowers  from Noor Designs and the Ribbon Girl.  The silver and pearly bead sprays from the wedding section in Hobby Craft.

I don't know if you've noticed there a re also three tiny brass bells painted white at the bottom of the flower arrangements.  Umm I think i got these from The Ribbon Girl.

Hope you love my inspiration - thanks for taking a look
