Autumn Wreath

Today is our second spot in the month at All Dressed Up where we share some inspiration with you for the new release images.



I've coloured the image with Copics, added some embossing enamel and distressed it with some Vintage Photo ink and a Tonic solutions tool.

The sentiment an heart were created at the time of printing.


My design paper has been in my stash for ages, Prima Marketing I think and I've also used some black card.  All the papers have been distressed using a Tonic Solutions tool.

My final addition was to add some autumn colour themed flowers to match with the colouring.

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

I know a right party animal......



I've coloured it with Copics leaving plenty of room to add a large sentiment from Make It Crafty.

I've done the sentiment background with black Copic keeping the theme of the card simple to make the coloured image pop more.

Whilst colouring the image I think my Copics may have been a bit "juicy" when I took the cap off one of them it splashed creating a dot.  To disguise this I've added lots more different coloured dots :)


I've used some black card and a simple black and white design paper.  Then a few neon enamel dots to finish.

Scorpio

Well the last two weeks went my in a flash, this is my second lot of inspiration for Outlawz Sketch using the awesome Aurora Wings images.  The one I'm using today is Scorpio Sprite.


The image has been coloured with Copics.  The edges of the image distressed with Vintage Photo ink and a Tonic Solutions tool.  Around the image I've also scattered two different colours of embossing enamel.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks


I've used design papers from Studio Light and Lemoncraft, all of these have also been distressed using the Tonic Solutions tool.


To keep with the zodiac theme I've added a couple of wooden stars, then I added a birthday sentiment from Make It Crafty coloured with Copics to match the design papers.

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

Teal Roses

Our awesome sponsor for October at Outlawz Sketch is Aurora Wings!

I've chosen to use Weeping Rose for my inspiration today.


The images has been coloured with Copics.  I had to do it in a bit of a rush (I got a bit behind with my hols last week) so I've given it a colour wash and added lots of texture to the petals.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks


I found the perfect design papers to go with the image.  They're from Studio Light.


I've also used some black card.  I tried to add the embellies as per the sketch to my card but it just kept taking it away from the beautiful image and gorgeous design papers.  So I decided to go plain without them for this time :)

Love it when a plan comes together!!

Our Facebook Challenge at All Dressed Up this month is Autumn / Halloween.  I've been wanting to colour up this image Bon Voyage again for a while, but was having trouble working out how I could fit it into this challenge.


I was off last week and looking at my Kit & Clowder colouring classes.  I spotted an autumn one and then some leaves which were a bonus colouring class.  Then I got an idea.  Colouring leaves like a mad thing I did loads and fussy cut them out.  I've used them on my two autumn DT inspiration cards this month.

All the colouring was done with Copics.


My design paper is from Lili of the Valley and I've used some black card.  Only other thing I added were a couple of birds into my background with a pen.

Don't forget we also have a blog challenge at All Dressed Up, and you can see more inspiration the Facebook Group.

Just a little autumn thing

It's been a while since little Finnian has had an airing.  I thought I'd use him in my inspiration for our latest challenge at SheepSki Designs Blog Challenges.  Our theme for this month is Autumn.



He's been coloured with Copics and I've scattered some embossing enamel down one side of the rough path I'd sketched in.

The leave which I've overloaded over the last few days (you'll also see them in my next card) are from a bonus Kit & Clowder Colouring Class.  I fussy cut them after I'd coloured them.


My design paper is from Lili of the Valley and Joy Crafts and I've also used some black card.  The Autumn sentiment was cut out using letter dies.

My final addition are four tiny wooden hearts made into butterflies.

Hope you like my inspiration for the challenge
