Honey Bee

A week gone by already!  I'm here sharing my creation for Outlawz Sketch.  We're sponsored this month by Through The Craft Room Door.  For my inspiration I'm using a lovely image from Small and Round called Honey Bee 

I've coloured the image with Copcis and a white gel pen.  The edges of the image and all my design papers have been distressed using a Tonic Solutions tool.

Here's our sketch for this week


My design papers are from Joy Craft.  I've kept the colour pallet simple to two colours.  I've also used some black card.


The butterfly chip board embellishments I found at Scrap and Craft.  My final addition a large paper flower I found in Hobby Craft.

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

One for Dad

I've used Taking Pics (you can find it here in my shop) to create my Father's Day card.  I'll be giving it to my dad later today :)


I've coloured the image with Copics.  The sentiment you can see I've created at the time of printing.  The images has been framed with some black card.  I've three tiny silver dragonfly beads which I found on Amazon and some camera strip from Tim Holtz.

The design papers are from First Edition, their new watercolour ones :)
Thanks for taking a look today

A little nature

We're been sponsored by Through The Craft Room Door this month at Outlawz Sketch.

That mean we get to use whatever images we like for our inspiration this time :)


I've chosen an image from Rick St Dennis called Steampunk Rose Bug.  The images has been coloured with Copics.  I've them cut it out with a Spellbinders die.  the edges has been distressed with antique linen, vintage photo and black soot inks from Tim Holtz.  I've then scattered some embossing enamel and heated it.  After this I've cut some black card with a Sepllbinders die and mounted the image onto it.

Here's our sketch for this week


My design papers are from Prima Marketing, Lili of the Valley and I've also used some more black card.  Behind the image you can see some cream lace which I got from The Ribbon Girl.



The double banners were produced using a La La Land die, some black card and paper from Prima Marketing.  Along the banner I've added a few black gems.  The sentiment is a wood chip one from Scrapiniec.

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

Mini musical mice

I don't do much stamping these days, but with a friends son's birthday coming up where he's just passed his piano and drum exams with flying colours, I though this image was perfect.

Of course it's house mouse stamp - we all love them - this one is Musical Mice.


I've coloured the image with Copics and a black polychromos pencil.

The design papers are from Lili of the Valley, Our Daily Bread and I've also used some black card.  The tiny banners at the right of the image were cut with a Fantasy die.


The keyboard ribbon was from Crafty Ribbons (I've had it in my stash for ages).  The birthday sentiment is a wood chip one from Scrapineic.

Thanks for taking a look today.

A new Favourite

I think I've got a new favourite colour combination, but we'll get onto that in a bit.

This month at Outlawz Sketch we're sponsored by Through The Craft Room Door.  A very special group for me this is where I began my crafty DT journey :)  Not only do they have a blog they also have an online magazine check them out here.
For my inspiration for this week, I've used an image from Hannah Lynn which is from one of the colouring classes at Kit & Clowder.  I've coloured this image using Copics and a white gel pen.

This is our sketch for this week


My papers are from My Favourite Things AND I'm loving this colour combination.  I picked it up from the image


Behind the image I've used the design paper cut with two Spellbinders dies to fit in with the sketch.

My only embellishment a few black gems.

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

Its the little things......

My final card for today is for the new Facebook Challenge over at All Dressed Up.

The theme for this month is As You like It - in other word anything you like as long as you use an All Dressed Up image.
I've created a very simple single layer card using Busy Shopping.  I've coloured in monochrome with my Copics and added a splash of colour with orange.

The random placed sentiment was created with some Tim Holtz stickers.


Thanks for taking a look today

Beautiful Peonies

The new challenge at SheepSki Designs for this month is Embellish It or Clean and Simple.  For this card to give you a little inspiration I've used a CAS style and also added some simple embellishments.  Just to show you you don't have to overload with embellishments to enter.


The image has been coloured with Copics, a white gel pen and a black polychromos pencil.

The sentiment was created at the time of printing.  My design paper is from Lemoncraft, I've added a few Rhine stones to add interest and bling, a think strip of bright pink satin ribbon to match the flowers and a few black gems.

Hope you like what I've created for the challenge and we see you there
