Love Life

Today is out second lot of inspiration for the July new release images.

I've used Holiday Girl, you can find here her in Wendy's Shop.  She come with mix and match clothes, sunglasses, hat, sandals and sentiments.

I've coloured her with ProMarkers and then fussy cut her.  I got to thinking while I was at it wouldn't it be cool it she actually wore the sunglasses and hat.  It was a bit of a challenge but I managed it :D

The design papers I've used are from Lemoncraft and Studio Light and have been distressed.

The large Love Life sentiment is from Scrapienic.  I've also added a tiny wooden heart, some flowers and a few pearl gems.

Don't forget to check out the Facebook Group and the blog challenge for the rest of the inspiration.

Summer Walk


It was the perfect excuse for me to turn my coloured image 50's Chic below into a card :)
The image was coloured with ProMarkers, Copics and polychromos pencils.  The white spots on the dress were done with a gel pen.

I've transformed the plain image by distressing the edges with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz, distressing the edges and then using white and aged silver embossing enamel.

I've turned it into a summer themed card by adding a Scripienic sentiment which I've coloured with black Copic

Here's a close up of the flowers arrangement on the left side.  There are some twigs from Scrapienic and the flowers are from The Ribbon Girl.

The design paper I used were distressed and are from Lemoncraft and Studio Light.  I've added some pops of pink to match the flowers and coz it's my favourite colour of course ;)

There are two different types of lace between the layers and a doily.
Finally to finish off a few pearl gems

Hope you love my inspiration today and we see you at the challenge.  Don't forget to check out the other AMAZING makes by the rest of the Fussy & Fancy ladies!

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.

I've used two Spellbinders dies to cut the circles

Here's our sketch for today

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.

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
