Autumn Owl

I'm a little late sharing my new release image inspiration for All Dressed Up tonight.  The weather has been really miserable all day and floods have held me up.



I've coloured with image with Copics and a white gel pen.  The clouds were done by colouring the background pale blue and then sketching in the clouds with a darker marker.  I then blended out.  I love the way they've come up all fluffy!



I've doodle a few birds into the background, sprinkled some embossing enamel with blue glitter around, distressed the edges of the image with a Tonic solutions tool, finally added a sentiment from Make It Crafty chippies.

Pop over to the challenge blog and Facebook Group to see more inspiration today

Just so happy

This has got to be one of my favourite images from Wendy :)  You can find It's Snowing here in her Etsy shop



The image has been coloured with Copics, I've scattered white embossing enamel around the image for the snow, it's perfect for this :)

To follow colour scheme of the image I've used black card and design paper from Joy Craft.


My finishing touches are a stripped ribbon from my stash and a sentiment from Make It Crafty coloured with black Copic.

Vintage White

This is the last image for the month from Aurora Wings our sponsor of the month over at Outlawz Sketch.

I've used Clara today, you can find her here.


The image has been coloured with Copics.  I wanted her to have a white vintage styles dress and I've achieved this using warm greys.  The pop of colour has been given to the nutcracker toy she's holding.

Around the images I've scattered some white embossing enamel.

The edges of the image and all my papers have been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.  The image has also been distressed with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz to take away some white.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks.


My design paper is from Maya Design and I've also used some dark red card.


Behind the image your can see some cream satin ribbon edged in gold.  I've finished it off with a wooden sentiment from Hobby Craft and a tiny wooden holly embellishment that I found at the bottom of one of my boxes ;)

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

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 :)
