Lily Pad Fairy

It's time for our second lot of new release inspiration at All Dressed Up.



The image had been coloured with Copics.


I've added a strip of design paper from First Edition in marching colours, I've also used a strip of black card.  I made a smidge at the top of the card by accident so I covered that up with a couple of tiny silver dragonfly charms :)

You can find more inspiration in the Facebook Group and on the Challenge blog today.

Beach Boy

I'm joining and an creating a little extra new release inspiration this month at All Dressed Up.


I've coloured him and the cloudy sky with Copics.  I've added a little embossing enamel to the clouds.

The sky and frame have been cut with a die I got from Dies to Die For.

The image itself I've fussy cut out and used some sticky pads to raise him up.


I've used some enamel dots it green and orange then doodled some balloon strings underneath.  I've also doodles some seagulls into the back ground :D

Finally to finish off a wood chip sentiment colour with Copics.

Ryder

Today is Outlaws Sketch Day!  We're sponsored this month by SheepSki Designs :D


For my inspiration i'm using a new image called Ryder, you can find him here in the shop.

I've coloured the image with Copics.


This is our sketch for the next two weeks.



I've slightly tweaked the sketch so I've not got any borders and have extended the design papers underneath to reach the edges :)
The design papers are from Lemoncraft and First Edition.

Finally a sentiment made up from Tim Holtz stickers, well I think I'd be having an adventure if I were riding a tortoise ;)

Season's




The image has been coloured with Copics.


A simple design to showcase the image I've used design papers from First Edition and Joy Crafts.  When I added the image to the card I cut it a bit high up for felt like I needed to fill the gap, which I did with a sentiment made from Tim Holtz stickers.

Don't forget as well as the Facebook Group we also have a challenge blog.

A little shabby chic

Today I'm honoured to be a GDT at CRAFT ChallengeSheepSki Designs is sponsoring them.  Their theme is Shabby Chic so this gave me an opportunity to make a style of card I've not done for a while.


The image I've used is called Alana, you can find her here.  She's been coloured with Copics.



Here's a close up of a section of flowers, these are mainly paper which I've had in my stash for ages.


Behind the flowers you can see a section of the lace I've used.  The is another close up of the flowers from the other side of the card.


the image has been distressed with Walnut Stain ink from Tom Holtz and a Tonic Solutions tool.

Behind the image you can see a doily and around the image I've scattered some embossing enamle.


My design papers are from 13Arts and the tiny tags from Maja Design.

To finish off I've added some pearls and a couple fo silver dragonfly charms.

Thanks for popping by today
