Special Friend


We're using images from DigiStamps4Joy this month.  I've decorated the inside and outside of my card this time using two of their images.



The first you can see here is Daffodil.  I've used a very clean design for the front of my card just using some black card to create a frame.
Added to the front are some tiny wooden hearts made into butterflies, there are a few rhine stones for bling and interest.

On the opposite side is a laser wood chip embellishment from Miszmasz and also a sentiment.

The second image is Juliette, inside the image at the time of printing I added a Happy Birthday sentiment.  She's also been framed with some black card.


All my colouring was done with ProMarkers, Copics and polychromos pencils.

Here's one of the sketches for today.


As you can see Juliette makes up the centre panel.  For the side openings I've used two doilies.  Behind this are two sections of the same design paper from 



Here's a close up of the panel with Juliette.  I've chosen to use hot colours to contrast with the black.


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

Surfs Up

For the second half of the All Dressed Up inspiration for Wendy's new release images I've got to play with Surfs Up

The image was coloured with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  Originally I coloured some water in the background, then changes my mind because I wanted to do the shark surfing the waves.  So I ended up fussy cutting him.

The design papers are from Studio Light and I've also used some plain red card.  I've used a Spellbinders die to cut the waves and then distressed them so they stand our more.

The sentiment is from two different word sets from Scrapienic.  I've doodles a few seagulls into the background.

And added a fish from Little B 3D Stickers (I found these in Hobbycraft)

Things with Wings


I've used Bumble Bee Blossom from SheepSki Designs for my inspiration.  I've coloured it with a combination of Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.
Cut with a Spellbinders die, the edges have been distressed with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz.  I've then scattered two types of embossing enamel onto it.

The shaped card has been covered with black card.  Two square cut design papers from Lemoncraft and Joy Crafts have been distressed before adding then to the card base.

My finishing touches are some apple blossoms and lilies.  There are also some laser cut wood chip elements from Scrapienic and a "Made with Love" sentiment.

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

Breezy Beach Walk


To get this look I've used a combination of ProMarkers, Copics, polychromos pencils and a white gel pen.

I've just framed it with some back card and added a "Summer" sentiment.

Just plain and simple to show the image off

Happy flowers

Did anyone notice, I was sneaky and added an extra image into my shop at the weekend :)

The image was coloured mainly with Copics (maybe I'm starting to get used to them a bit) I only used my ProMarkers on the stems and polchromos pencils on the stems and to create the petal detail.  What do you call the tiny thin lines that run along the petals that look like tiny veins?

Anyway I'm rambling on.  The background was also done with Copics.  I've doodled a border, framed it with some black card and added a Birthday sentiment from Scrapiniec.
Now who to give it to........

Purple and blue just for you

It's Wednesday, Sketch day over at Outlawz.  We're sponsored this month by DigiStamps4Joy.
My inspiration for this week is using Happy Birthday 2 U.  I've coloured it with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils leaving some parts completely uncoloured and white to give a contrast.

Here's our sketch for this week


The image was fussy cut to give the internal square shape n the sketch.

Behind the image is some purple design paper from Lili of the Valley to frame it.

The only thing I've done is a little doodling to frame the whole card making it a very plain and simple card.

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

Purity

Sweet and innocent - that's what I was aiming for with this one.  The Purity came from the white rose in the black and white image.

I've coloured her with ProMarkers, Copics and polychromos pencils.  At first I did the rose pink and my hubby suggested I did it red.  So for the highlights on the rose this time are done with a white gel pen, because I'd gone too far to do them with my pens and pencils.

The design paper is from Joy Crafts and I've used some black card to frame her.

The heart and sentiment (coloured black with Copic) are from Scrapienic and the ribbon I've had in my stash for ages, but I think its a Docrafts one.

Hope you like my inspiration for today
