We're all goin' on a......

well it is that time of year, the kidz are breaking up from school.  

Someone said holidays to me a few weeks back, well that was it my mind went wandering off on seaside resorts and old style traditional British holidays.  Have you ever seen the beach huts that line some of our shores?

Any way, enough rambling, I've used Copics, a black polychromos pencil and a white gel pen to colour this image called Beach Hut Holiday.  You can find it in my Etsy shop here.  Quote SKIANDREA10 at checkout if you want 10% off ;)


Showcasing the image for you today, I've just framed it with some black card.

Happy holidays <3

Framed Flower

We're already three weeks into the challenge at Outlawz Sketch, wow time flies.  We're sponsored by DigiStamps4Joy this month.

Today I'm using Daffodil for my inspiration.  The image has been coloured with Copics.  I've had cut the oval to fit in the centre of the black card cut with a fancy oval Spellbinders die.

Here's our sketch for this week

Apart from using black card my design papers are from Joy Crafts.

The black mini heart banners you can see are cut from black card using a La La Land die.  Once the die was cut I split the banner into sections to add to my card.

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

GDT for C.R.A.F.T. Challenge

Today I have the honour of being a GDT for C.R.A.F.T. Challenge.  The theme for Challenge 476 is Shabby Chic which happens to be one of my favourites :)

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge are being sponsored by All Dressed Up this time where the prize on offer it two of Wendy's awesome images.  If you want a quick the shop link is here.
For my inspiration I'm using Full of Grace and Ballet Shoes.  I've coloured them with Copics in my favourite colour PINK!  The ballet shoes have been fussy cut and added into the corner of the card.  

The image has been distressed with Tim Holtz Vintage photo and Milled Lavender ink.  All the design papers and Full of Grace have been distressed with a Tonic Solutions Tool.

Around the edges of the image I've scattered some embossing enamel.


The design papers are from Maja Design.  I've added some lace and organza rose trim, which I got from The Ribbon Girl, the pearl string was also from them.  I've added a few more pearl gems and finished off with a selection of pink paper flowers.

Hope you like my GDT inspiration for today, thanks for taking a look.

Cute new image

I'm releasing some new images in my shop today.  This one is Panda you can find him here.  Or if you want both Panda & Bear I've got them on sale together for a reduced price here :) 



I've coloured Panda with Copics a black polychromos and a white gel pen.  I'm showcasing the image today so have done a CAS style card for my inspiration.

The sentiment is a Make It Crafty one which I added at the time of printing.

Panda is framed with black card, design paper from First Edition.  Then I've added some bright green and yellow enamel dots to finish him off.

Hope you like my new addition <3

Here's our sketch for this week


My design papers are from Santoro and Joy Crafts. All have been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.  The ribbon has been in my stash for ages.

The banner is a Fantasy die which I got from Crafteezee.



Pearl gems and and wood love sentiment complete the card.  You might spot some tiny pink hearts around the image.  These are the off cuts from the heart banner :)

Beautiful Summer Bird

Today is new release day al All Dressed Up, it's been a little while since I've created for new release day because I've been a little busy lately.  I had to do this card last minute so decided to showcase it with firey summer colours.

I've coloured the image with Copics, black polychromos pencil and a white gel pen.  The back ground was created with BG000 Copic then I sponged a little of B000 then Y38 (I'd used on the bird) onto the background.

Embossing enamel is sprinkled around the edges of the image.

Just some simple framing with black card and design paper from Joy Crafts.

Hope you like my inspiration for today.  You can check out the rest of the Dressy Girl inspiration here on Facebook  or on the challenge blog here
