Mostly White

So this one was a real challenge for me :)
I find white on white or mostly white cards really hard to make.  So whilst it's not completely pure white, it's a close as I could get it.

This card was made for the DT inspiration over at Fussy and Fancy Fridays for our current challenge.


I've taken a couple of angled shots so you can see the dimension to the card.

As you can see my design papers from Lemoncraft have been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.  I've used dies, lots and lots of dies.  They're all from Fantasy apart from the circular one which is made up from two Spellbinders dies.

The sentiment was printed on some design paper which I then cut out in a banner shape and taped it so the centre was raised.

At the end of the banner are a few pearls.  I've also used some at the top right of the card.

Behind the circular die cut is a doily, the tiny white hearts you can see are the cut outs from the heart die.


The flowers that can be found at the Ribbon Girl are the Sweet heart blossoms, the magnolia, beaded stamen and white rose leaves.

You can also find my pop of colour, the butterfly beads at the Ribbon Girl.

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

Circuits

Sharing a little creation I've made for a very special birthday today.

As Bob was being coloured for a 70th birthday card I've done him all rusty and old hee hee....

I've done this using Copics.  the image was cut out with a large section to the right where I could add the embellies.

The design papers have been in my stash for ages for this one, they're industrial looking ones to go with the image.

The sentiment was printed at the same time as the image.  I've just edged it and the image with Walnut Stain from Tim Holtz.  Behind the image is a section of corrugated card board from some bedding packaging :)


Bob has lots of cog embellishments, these are metal ones from Tim Holtz.  The can has been made for my uncle who loved robots and has always made his own circuits.  So I decided to draw some on with a pen around the image edges to personalise it.

Holly Hocks

This beautiful little image of Holly Hocks is from Anne's Digital Art, our sponsor at Outlawz Sketch this month.

I've coloured the image with Copics, a white gel pen and a black liner pen.

The image has been and cut in an oval shape, then the background paper cut out with a Spellbinders die.  The design papers are from Lemoncraft.  All these have had the edges distressed with Walnut Stain from Tim Holtz.

Here's our sketch for this week.


The section of lace behind the image is from the Ribbon Girl.  Scattered around the image is a sequin and a few Rhine stones.

My final touch was to add the sparkly blue enamel dots and a wood chip butterfly.

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

Playing with flowers, tulle and lace

So I'm sharing a little something from my play time last night, I had to wait for all the glue to dry before I could take the pictures tonight and add the last bits on.  These goodies are mainly from The Ribbon Girl.  I'll give you the links in a bit.

I love these roses and I've never had them in green before.  With those and the white leaves I started having a rummage around my design papers for teal papers.  Overjoyed I found some.

I've taken a few photos at different angles so you can see the 3-d effect of the flowers / card/

Showing a close up of the flower section also with resin flowers, ric-rac and frilled tule

Here you can see the sentiment I cut out of the design papers which says "The flower of friendship grows."  The design papers have all been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.  They're from 13 Arts and Studio Light.  I've also used some white card which has been die cut into leave with a Fantasy Die.  The main square shaped fancy die is a Spellbinders one.

You can also see a bee charm I won as part of a prize from The Trinket Parlour.

On the left underneath the die you can also see some lace I've used from The Ribbon Girl.

I've also used some green shimmery gel dots and a few cream pearls to finish off.

Thanks for popping by for a look today

A Little Goth....

So this little lady has been in my shop for a while but I've only just had chance to colour her up and her her on a card.

Her boots are a combination of some I had in my early 30's and my Doc Martins :D

I've coloured her with Copics and added a little black polychromos pencil.

My design papers today are from First Edition, Maja Design and 13Arts.

No embellishments today just a sentiment from Make It Crafty which has been coloured with Copics.

Thanks for popping by and laking a look
