BEACH GIRL


This beautiful image is a Time For Tea Designs digi, called Beach Girl.  I have coloured her with ProMarkers and used gel pen for her flower crown, and also given her one round her waist and ankle.  Behind her, I coloured the sand with a base layer of Sandstone ProMarker, and then dabbed the sky and sand with Distress Ink.  There are also loads of Liquid Pearl dots.  I have cut her out using a Spellbinders die.  



My papers are from the 49 and Market Sand and Sea pack.  My flowers are 49 and Market and Prima.  I have cut two shell borders on my Cameo.  There's a strip of spidery cream stuff (wish I knew what it was called), and a soft ribbon bow.


The shells and seahorse are Dress It Up buttons.  The little anchor is Little B, and the bottle is 7 Gypsies.

A LITTLE BIT GRUMPY


I was a little surprised to realise I had never used this digi before, because she's one of my favourites.  I just love her folded arms and attitude.  She's called A Little Bit Grumpy, and she's from The Paper Shelter.  I have coloured her with markers.  I added a few white dots to her wings, with a gel pen.  The stitched oval frame around her is a Poppy Crafts die cut

My paper is from the Ella & Viv Etherial pack.  The stamps are magazine freebies.  My flowers are an assortment of Prima, 49 and Market, and Green Tara, and I've added a strip of Ultimate Crafts lace and a few pearl swirls.

FUSSY & FANCY CHALLENGE #206: FAVOURITE COLOURS



Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I have the honour of being the Guest Designer at Fussy & Fancy, where your theme for the fortnight is:
  YOUR FAVOURITE COLOURS 


My favourite colour is definitely purple, so I used varying shades of purple for my card.

I've used a Wee Stamps image by Sylvia Zet, and coloured it with markers.  The little dots are Liquid Pearls.  The image and sentiment have been cut out using Wonky Stitches cutting dies by Creative Dies.  My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters Collection.

I've added an assortment of flowers, a hand crocheted doily by Annette (my mum 😊), and ScrapBerry resin embellishments.  






So what are YOUR favourite colours?  

To see what your usual Design Team ladies have created for your inspiration this week, head back to the challenge blog, where you can also enter your creation.

Back in mid 2017, I was also offered the opportunity to be a Guest Designer for Fussy & Fancy, but both my daughters got married a few months later, and right about then, my life got EXTREMELY BUSY - far too busy to go back and check challenge results... and I never saw the invitation!  I only spotted it months later, when scrolling through the previous challenges, looking for some inspiration for the card I was working on at the time!  So I was really happy to be asked a 2nd time, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Nikki and the team for asking me.

Thanks so much for popping by for a look!

I was lucky enough to use the beautiful Charlie on the Swing, from Little Blue Button, this week.  I have coloured her with markers, and drawn in a tree for her swing to hang from.  I absolutely love this character!  This is the 2nd time I've been lucky enough to showcase Little Blue Button Stamps.  You can see another card using Solo Charlie here.

MAY YOUR WISHES COME TRUE


This little beauty is called May Your Wishes Come True, and she is part of the Winnie Celebrations 1 collection from Polkadoodles.  I just love the attitude she exudes and how determined she looks!  I have coloured her with markers.  

She was the first image from the collection that I printed and coloured, without really thinking about what I was going to do with her.  As a result, when I finally got down to creating a card for her, I realised I'd restricted myself by the size I'd made her, and the fact that I'd coloured a background for her.  So, she is dominating her own Secret Garden!


I created the garden gate by cutting the image out on my Cricut and the placing it between 2 sheets of acetate.  I've added a few pearls for flower centres.  Here's a pic of the garden gate with a plain sheet of paper behind it, so you can see the details a little better:


I have used glittery washi tape around the edges of the card.

OCEAN DREAMS


I needed a very general card for a gentleman yesterday, and put this together using a brand new paper pack from Stamperia, called Sea Land.  It's such a stunning pack, that I immediately got online to order a new one, to replace the pieces I'd used for this card, before stock runs out.  It's an addiction I think... I seriously love paper, and feel loss when I use something that I won't then be able to use again.  I'm hoping there's SOMEONE out there who understands and relates.

Anyway... all I had to add was a few thin strips of leather to the tags and a few little pearls in the corner.

PASSION FOR PROMARKERS CHALLENGE #432: HAVE A HEART


Good Morning ProMarker lovers!

We have a brand new, exciting challenge starting at Passion or Promarkers today, with Natalie choosing your theme:

HAVE A HEART



This is great time to think about all those you love, OUTSIDE of Valentine's Day!  We'd like to see at least one heart on your project.  It could be an embellishment, part of the paper, or the centre focus of your project.  It's up to you!  

We have a fantastic prize up for grabs this week:

is offering our winner a $12 voucher for their store.  These are such elegant stamps, with a great range available to choose from.

I'm showcasing Baby's Smile today.  I have coloured the image with ProMarkers.  Around the image is a branch ring from 49 & Market.  The little twig hearts were in my stash, so I'm not sure who they're by, unfortunately.  My papers are from the KaiserCraft Romantique pack.  I have cut two of the layers out with a Spellbinders die (and then pretty much covered them up with everything else!)  The flowers are an mix of 49 and Market and KaiserCraft, and the crocheted doily is KaiserCraft.  The sentiment is from the Romantque pack too, but I've spliced it to fit my card.  

In there you'll also find a strip of burlap and a few pearls.
