Wings

I decided to sketch in some clouds behind her and one so she looks like she's standing on one.  The image was coloured with Copics and polychromos pencils.  Only coz I didn't quite get the Copic colouring right and I needed a little more depth of shading in there  LOL!

She's been finished off with some distressing of the image edges creating a single layer card.  A few rhine stones adding a bit of interest and bling / magic to the card.

Hope you like my angel

Cozy Christmas

Have you seen this beautiful image from Createful Heart - it's called Christmas Eve Kitty.  If you want to practice some colouring it's just perfect!
I've coloured the image using Copics and framed it with some black card.

The design papers are from Docrafts, Santoro and Lili of the Valley.

To embellish the card I've added some black gems and some wooden number I got in Hobbycraft.

Hope you love creation

Nut Roast for Christmas

Perfect Christmas card for Veggie - LOL!!

I've turned an autumn image from our sponsor TLC at Outlawz Sketch into a Christmas card.  I have no idea where I get my ideas from sometimes :)

This image is called Sharing Dinner Squirrels.  I've coloured it with Copics.  It's been cut out with a Spellbinders die, distressed with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz and mounted onto a black frame.  this was cut out of black card using another Spellbinders die.

Here's our sketch for this week.  I've flipped the background but kept the image going in the same direction.


My design papers are from Studio Lite and I've also used some more black card.

No embellishments for this one, just a sentiment from Scrap and Craft coloured with black Copic.

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

Always

Created especially for my mum and dad's anniversary.  I created this card using Ragged Romeo from Mo Manning.  My mum loved orange to I had to do the girl in that colour.  To compliment I've used a dark green for the boy.
The image was coloured with Copics.  In the back group I managed to splodge some ink so I drew a kit in the sky to hide it with pen then added a couple of bird as well.

The design papers were picked out to match the image colours and are from Lemoncraft, Studio Lite and Santoro.  I've also used some black card.  All these were distressed.

I've added an ALWAYS sentiment instead of anniversary, this is from Scrapienic.  There are a couple of tint wooden hearts bought off eBay.  The flowers are all autumn colours and are from The Ribbon Girls and Noor Design.

Hope you like the card I made for them

Winter Warmer

When I was young a friend of the family had a Jack Russell, he was so cute, he was called Jack.  We were also watching The Mask the other week which made me thing of drawing a Jack Russell :)


I've got a whole host of pics of this one as I've been colouring it, I might share if enough people are interested.  I was doing my OLD USUAL colouring with Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  I'm trying to stop doing this and trying to use one brand at the moment.

Added to the background of Jack I've scattered some embossing enamel and glitter.  He's framed with black card and design papers from Craftwork Cards.  I've also used a scrap left from creating another card.  This and some black card were cut with a Spellbinder die.

I've cut some trees in white card and design paper, using a Marianne Design die.  Added to this is some Snowtex.

I've finished off with a Christmas sentiment coloured in burgundy and some red gems to pick out the red in the scarf.

Hope you love this little guy.

Shabby Chic Thank You

Our theme for the next two weeks at Fussy & Fancy Friday is Thanks.  At first I was going to create a card with an image but I changes my mind whilst making the card.

I've used design papers from Lemoncraft.  They're been distressed and on the top paper I've scattered some embossing glitter and enamel.

Layers of lace from The Ribbon Girl and Wild Orchid Crafts have been mixed with a wood chip border and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Noor Design.
The corner and sentiment are also wood chip elements that I got from Scrap and Craft.  A few rhine stones and a couple of sequins complete the shabby chic look.

Hope you love my inspiration today and we see you at the challenge
