Xmas Party


The theme is Christmas in July.



I've coloured them with Copics, giving each hat a different design.

To make it look more seasonal I've sprinkled some embossing enamel, making sure the gnome with the tongue has caught a snowflake ;)


My design papers are from First Edition.  The sentiment has been created from the same design paper using Sizzix letter dies.

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

The image had been coloured with Copics with bright colours for the dogs shades etc.

Heart and Soul

Over at Colour Crazy Craft Challenge our sponsor this time is Oddball Art.  I used to DT for Lizzy and I so miss using her creepy cute images!



I've coloured her with Copics.  Once I finished her I was looking through my design papers and came across this frame I'd cut for something else but not used, it was just perfect!  Underneath the frame is a section.  Both of these papers are from Hobby Craft.


I've not added much to this one, I found a purple heart enamel sticker and I've made a sentiment "Heart and Soul" using Tim Holtz stickers.

Thanks for popping by, hope to see some of you entering the challenge :D

Time for my dreams.....

So we're sponsoring 613 Avenue Create this month, as well as that I'm honoured to be a guest designer with them and a Master Rocker this time :)

Their optional twist this time is Let It All Hang Out.  It's been a long long long long time since I did any mixed media so I though this the perfect opportunity.  

I got a couple of wooden door hangers from Hobbycraft a few weeks ago ready for this project.

I've used Morpheus the little sleeping dragon for my inspiration, you can find him in the shop here.  He's been coloured with Copics and them fussy cut.  Then I had a bit of a block after colouring him.  I was going to make my own cloudy background with some modelling past but our holiday got a bit in the way.  A crazy week at home, we were supposed to be chilling and well that didn't happen.  I've gone back to work this week for a rest haha!


So I grabbed a bit of time towards the end of last week and dug out some stencils.  I found some lovely floral ones from Tim Holtz and some dots.  I also used the ones with the scrip writing on (can't remember who that one is by without doing a lot of digging).

One I'd done the modelling paste bit and dried it I splashed some black gesso on and dried it.


Once dried I started to highlight the raised parts with Metallic gilding polish from Creative Expressions, some Distress Spray Stains from Tim Holtz and DecoArt Interference Fluid Acrylics.  Out with the heat gun again! 


Finally I added Morpheus, some silver gems, a white star and a sentiment "Time for my Dreams"

Really enjoyed my crafty time, just wish it wasn't so rushed!  Bloomin holidays :D

Black and Silver

So we've got a theme of pick a colour or colours in the All Dressed Up Facebook Challenge this time.  Yes it can be your favourite colour or colours OR you can just pick colours to use.

I had my nails done black and silver glitter a couple of weeks ago and I loved then, so I decided to pick this for my theme.



She's been coloured with Copics and then hand cut.  Some black card cut with a Spellbinder die is the matting behind her.


I've used, silver and black gems, some silver glitter paper, black card and some design paper from First Edition, which is actually a Christmas one but I thought it fit well :)

You can find more inspiration in the Facebook Group today, and don't forget we also have a Challenge Blog.

The image has been coloured with Copics and I've created a CAS styled card to show off those 
stripes :D


The design paper is from Craftwork Cards, not sure they're still in business? and I've used a wood chip sentiment coloured with black Copic.

Happy Colouring :)

I've extended my stay at Colour Crazy Craft Challenge - well it's a good place to be when you love colouring :D



I've coloured the image with Copics and then added a little black pencil for some more depth.  I wanted a fairly simple colour pallet to make the sunflowers pop.


To keep with the simple design I've used some black card and a section of gold glitter paper.  No embellishments on this one as I wanted full impact and showcasing of this gorgeous image.
