Finally a little me time

I've been so busy lately at work and home promoting other designers images I've hardly had any time to colour anything up of my own.  BUT finally I've managed to find a little me time tonight :)




I'm running a little low on marker ink at the moment, I've not much it the way of pinks so I've some this one in purple Copics.

I wanted to create a magical feel on a single layer card, partly so I could showcase the image.  I literally chucked some embossing enamel onto the card and then moved it around in an S shape. 


To finish off we've a couple of wood chip embellies I got from Scrap and Craft.  Finally a few sequins and rhine stones :)

Thanks for popping by for a look today

NEED COFFEEEEEE...... :)

We're being sponsored by Createful Heart this month at Outlawz Sketch.  I've chosen to use Coffee Buddies for my inspiration.  Mainly the COFFEE part :D


Unusual for me I picked my papers first, I hardly ever do that!


To match my papers I've coloured the image with Copics in two different greys and aquas.

I hand cut the image to fit inside the die cut border.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks


I've flipped mine on its side and missed out the ribbons.  Instead of the buttons I've used two wooden hearts and in the centre of these a Coffee sentiment from Make It Crafty coloured with Copics.


My design papers are from First Edition and Maja Design, the aqua frame was cut with a Spellbinders die.

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

Fancy a Cocktail....

It's our new release inspiration day at All Dressed Up.  Today I'm sharing Fruitti Tutti with you, you can find it here in the shop.


I've coloured the image with Copics in lovely sunny summer colours.  The sentiment from Make It Crafty has been coloured to match.

There are a few enamel dots in yellow and orange to add a bit more interest.


The actual card design I've kept very simple because I'd run out of time (lots on al the moment).

My papers are from Hobbycraft and I've used some black card, both have been cut with a die.

You can see more new release inspiration using the new images on the blog and in the Facebook Group today.

Winter Fun

We're a little short of bodies on the challenge blog today so I thought I'd join my lovely ladies :)

Our challenge for July on the blog is EARLY CHRISTMAS / WINTER.  I already had my aqua markers out from colouring my All Dressed Up image so I thought I'd continue the theme with Head Stand.  You can find this image here and get 10% off all my images by quoting SKIANDREA10 at checkout.


So as I was saying, this has been coloured with aqua Copics with a pop of orange for the nose :D

I've scattered two different coloured embossing enamel around for a snowy effect.  The sentiment has been made up with Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers.  Around the edges I've used some Tim Holtz black soot ink.

My design papers from Maya Design Craft & You and have been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.


A few pearls and a piece of pom pom trim complete the card.

Thank for popping by for a look, we hope to see you at the challenge or in the SheepSki Designs Facebook Group

I'm honoured to be able to share with you one of the new stamps which you can purchase through Crafteezee.  Find them here.  This one is called Love to Dance & you can find it here.  when I stamped this one I missed out the ballet shoes with the ink and it came out perfectly :)


The image has been coloured with Copics, I've then used some Vintage photo ink from Tim Holtz and distressed the edges with a Tonic Solutions tool.  I then scattered some embossing enamel in two colours.  You can see at the right on the image I've used a couple of brass corners.



My designs papers have also been distressed, they're from Lemoncraft and Maja Design.

To the left of the image your can see some Imogen lace and pearl string which can be found at Crafteezee.

To finish off I've made a sentiment out of Tim Holtz Bog Chat stickers

Cornflowers




The image has been coloured with Copics, a while gel pen and a black polychromos pencil.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks.


My design papers are from Hobby Craft and I've also used some black card for framing.


When I was putting the card together I'd got a LOT of blue ink on my thumb, which I then managed to transfer to the coloured image.  I hide it I added a silver dragonfly charm.  I thought it went well so I added a couple more ;)

The Friendship sentiment is a sticker from Tim Holtz.

Unicorns & Rainbows

After saying to myself so many times I was not going to do this and go down the girly unicorn road - sigh!  Just look what I've gone and done......


This is my creation for the Outlawz Sketch challenge.  We, SheepSki Designs, are sponsoring them this month :)


So creating the typical girly unicorn card it HAD to have a rainbow.  This was the first thing I sketched in behind the image.  I then coloured the whole thing with Copics.  Starting with the background in case it went wrong or I hated it and had to bin it and start again LOL!!  I'm so happy to say I didn't have to do that.

Here's our Outlawz Sketch for the next two weeks


My design paper were all distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.  They're from Hobby Craft and First Edition.  I've also used some black card for framing all the pinky elements so they stood out from each other.



The sentiment (coloured with Copics randomly) is from Lili of the Valley.  I've added a tiny pink paper flower from Hobby Craft to the left of it.  There are some tiny pink banners cut with a Fantasy Die at the top left, a pale aqua sequin and a few Rhine stones scattered around for interest.

The whole effect very girly and pink!

Thanks for popping by for a look today.  Hope we see you at the challenge

Daisy Panel

I'm slowly getting round to colouring up some of my newer images.  This one is Daisy Panel.  The daisies have been drawn from my mother in laws garden :)



The image has been coloured with Copics.  I'd actually printed it too large to cut it out with a die so I drew round one and hand cut it instead.  It was a bit rough when I'd done so I decided to distress it with a Tonic solutions tool to disguise it ;)

I've sprinkled a little embossing enamel around the image and used some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink at the edges.

I've used a mix of papers from Lemoncraft, First Edition and some other I'm having trouble identifying at the moment!  All the papers have also been distressed.


The vintage seam binding has been hand tied with a bow.  I've used a few daisies from Wild Orchid Crafts and a sentiment from Lili of the Valley and coloured with Copics.

Monster Birthday

Our theme for this month over at All Dressed up in the Facebook Group is FOR THE BOYS.  It's Father's Day in June so I thought I'd set the ladies the task of boy cards to give you a little male inspiration :)




The image has been coloured with Copics.


I've used design papers from Hobby Craft to match the colours of the monsters and some black card for framing.


The letters were cut out of the same paper using Sizzix letters and I've also added a few enamel dots in matching colours.

Hope you like my inspiration for today.  Don't forget we also have the challenge blog as well as the Facebook Group.  You can find it here

Mini Me

I've had this one drawn for ages but have only just coloured it.  You can find Mini Me in my Etsy shop here where you can get 10% off all my images by quoting SKIANDREA10 at checkout


The image has been coloured with Copics.  I've kept the card design simple to showcase the image.


I've done some doodling round the edges to frame the image, added some neon yellow enamel dots, a silver dragonfly charm and a wood chip sentiment from Scrapiniec.

Thanks for popping by today for a look

Copic on Kraft

For my latest inspiration for the Outlawz Sketch challenge I'm using papers from our sponsor WeAre3 called Little Garden, I thought the combination went well using the pink and yellow papers with the image I'm using.


This little cute fairy was coloured on Kraft at one of my Copic colouring classes with Faye, it's one of the techniques she teaches :)
I've fussy cut her to add to the project and made her wings a little sparkly.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks


I've used two Spellbinders dies to cut the circles behind the image and distressed all my papers with a Tonic Solutions tool.



The ribbon and flowers (my only embellishments) were bought from The Ribbon Girl a while ago.

Hope you like my inspiration and we see you at the challenge.

One I don't Usually Use

Today I'm sharing some inspiration with one of Wendy's new release images for May :)


I'v used a colour combination I don't usually use for this card.  I'm loving how if came out though, I definitely need to use it again.  I've used Copics to colour the image.  Using a little of a very pastel shade of each to give it a soft glow behind the image.



I've not used any embellishments for this one just design papers from Hobbycraft and Lemoncraft.  The Lemoncraft paper was cut with a die which I got from Dies to Die for at one of my Copic colouring  classes with Faye :)

Hope you like my inspiration for today.  You can see more from the Dressy Girls today on the challenge blog and in the Facebook Group

All about the hearts

So I've done something very different for me this time.  The sketch at Outlawz and the papers Bonnie (from WeAre3) has let us use for our DT inspiration got me thinking about a sentiment only card.  I nearly always do images.  I thought the hearts went so well with the wood chip sentiment :) 



Here's our sketch for this challenge


The paper I've used are from We Are Three's Really Simple digital paper, I've also used a piece of left over wood effect paper, with some red and black card.  This one as you can see involved lots of layering.

I've used a double strip of ric rac in red and black to match the theme, the wood chip sentiment from Scrapiniec has been coloured with Copics.  My only other addition is a single red rose.

Hope you like my inspiration for today, we hope to see you at the challenge

Elsa

I'm here today introducing Elsa properly.  She featured in a recent card I made using Honey n Money.  She was an added extra to the Owl and Pussy cat tale by request from one of my friends :)



I've used Copics to colour her with, then added a little black & white polychromos and while gel pen.

I've kept the design simple to showcase the image adding some yellow neon enamel dots, a couple of silver dragonfly charms and a birthday sentiment from Scrapiniec coloured with black Copic.


The design paper is from Studio Light and I've also added a little doodling for interest.

She's been created for a special birthday coming up soon :)
