Waiting for the Sunflowers

Today is our new challenge day at SheepSki Designs in the Facebook group.

This one has been a work in progress for a few few weeks.  I was hoping for some inspiration from the giant sunflowers in the garden, but at the moment all they're interested in doing is growing to monster size without any flowers!!  So this was more from imagination of what I'm hoping they will look like ;)

I've coloured the image with Copics, sprinkled a little embossing enamel around and added a Sunshine sentiment using a Tim Hotlz stocker and a tiny silver dragonfly charm.  The card is a single layer one to showcase the coloured image.

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

Lavender and Lace

Coloured used for the theme are green, orange and purple, along with the works cake and Provence (where the story takes place).

I decided to make a cake gift bag for my inspiration using the colours of the theme with lavender floral design paper.

The design paper are from Pion, I've cut a green butterfly out of some Lemoncraft design paper.  The Cake tags were made with dies.

The design papers were distressed using a Tonic Solutions tool.  I've added some frothy cream lace, a string of pearly to frame the design papers and a tiny resin corner I've had in my stash for years!

Hope you'll join in with the challenge :)

Roarsome birthday

 So it's that Outlawz Sketch time again, I've been so busy this last month I was slightly late with my card, but it's there now!

We have no sponsor for this month so I've decided to use an image form Lee Holland, I do love his images :)

I've no sentiment on this one although I am thinking about adding something like a roarsome birthday!

This one is called Cute Lion.  I've coloured it with Copics and then cut the oval shape out by hand.

This is our sketch for the month.

I went shopping the other day at Hobbycraft and found some new design papers, this is one one them.

The grass at the front was cut out of left over paper and black card stock using an icicle die that I've turned upside down.  The design paper is also matter onto black card stock.  The only other thing I've added are some black gems.

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

Dino Christmas

Today is our challenge day at All Dressed Up in the Facebook Group.  Out theme for this month is YOUR FAVOURITE THINGS!

So my favourite things for this card are colouring with Copics, Christmas, embossing enamel, CAS (no layers just the image coloured card) style and of course cute dinosaurs :D

I think I've probably told you everything about the card apart from the sentiment which is a Hobby Craft one coloured with Copics.

Don't forget we also have the All Dressed Up challenge blog where you can find more inspiration and another challenge.

Thank for popping by today
