a cute one!

Image
It's been ages since I made a 'cute' card but I just fancied colouring in this little mermaid...I stamped her out a while ago so I will have to hunt through my rubber stamp box to find out where se is from and I will update as soon as I do.

I coloured her in with promarkers and used papers from K & co, the ribbons and fibres were from my stash.


I am entering this into the following challenges.

Something Fishy

Image
I kow it's not my teams turn this week to make a piece for Delicious Doodles, but I was inspired by the theme and as I went to the beach at the weekend and gathered loads of shells and driftwood I had to make something :) The image is from Delicious Doodles and is called beach huts, I coloured it in with promarkers and put it into the frame which I then covered with the drift wood and some shells.

The bottom layer of paper is from delicious doodles and is called rose and thistle papers and can be found here the other papers are Bazzill cardstock that I have scrunched up and inked all over, I got in a bit of an inky mess making this but I certainly enjoyed it :D

Welcome back for another challenge with Smudgy Antics. The theme for this fortnight is Tic-Tac-Toe. You must use three items in a row from the grid below.   You may go down, across, or diagonally. 




There is still a week left to play along with us in this challenge.  for my piece I have made a tag using 2 differnt lines Flowers, Metal, ribbon Ribbon, paint, cardboard



I used one of the new digi's from the Broken and Bleeding set I coloured her in with promarkers and added some glossy accents and a gem on her necklace. On the tag I have used a piece of cardboard that I cut with a die, some ribbon, a border die cut from cardstock then covered with foil before running through the embosser, I then used black paint on it and rubbed so much off just to take the shine off the foil. To finish it off I used a couple of cherry blossom flowers and a metal charm. I am using this piece in the junk funk challenge over at smeared and smudged

Delicious Doodles more than one fold

Image
It's my teams week to make the DT pieces for the Delicious Doodles challenge this week and the theme is more than one fold. I don't tend to do fancy cards so I had to have a little think about this one. I finally decided to make a pocket gift book.

This book is pretty easy to make and just uses one sheet of 12" x 12" paper or cardstock. I used a sheet of K&Co double sided design paper. The image I have used is called Marina and she can be found here

The challenge is to make a project that is colourful but you cannot use markers or pencils. At first I went into total panic mode, but then I stought about it and realised I often make things without markers and pencils. There are so many ways to make something colourful, there is paint, ink, paper piecing, perfect pearls..the list is endless!


I have made 2 tags, the first one I have used pieces of coloured paper for the back ground, then randomly stamped all over it with my ink pads, once it was dry I stamped the image from smeared inks Carnies set.


The second piece I hav paper pieced, I painted the background of the tag first then printed the image out onto different coloured papers, cut out and stuck on the bits I wanted, agan the image is from Smeared ink and this time is from the candy is da…
