Pink and one other


We have Kenny K sponsoring us this week at Glitter n Sparkle
and the image I used was: Jeannie - pretty Genie 


This is such a cute image to colour, and perfect for our 
"white and one other colour"
challenge.

As you can see, I chose pink as my other colour!
I fussy cut around the image and bottle after colouring with my alcohol pens
and I added some spots of white here n there too. 
I embossed the background with the stars
embossing folder, which I thought would go well with Jeannie.
I coated jeannies clothing in "wink of stella" - a glitery subtle sheen,
which is beautiful, but a nightmare to photograph!
A simple sentiment (from Pink Petticoat -who sadly, is no longer trading)
finished off the card.

Lollipop Munchkin

the challenge is ...
"For the kids - be inspired by a kids film."

Can you guess the film I have been inspired by?


Haha...
yes... it's quite obvious.
"Wizard of Oz."

The lovely "lollipop munchkin" image is from Lacy Sunshine.
I coloured the image with my alcohol markers
and added a sweetie border... it's actually
a strip of border from a piece of 12 x 12 christmas paper!
A couple of butterflies and a pink petticaot sentiment
finished the card.

A card for a female

This month, over at Patties Creations,
the challenge is...
"for the girls."


I have been after an excuse to use this image "country shelf" for a while. 
It didn't disappoint!

I used it to make a card for my Mother in Law.
(and I shall be making another version for my Mum, ]for her birthday,
in a couple of months  - as I know
she would love this too.)

I coloured the image first, 
then hunted through all my papers to find matching coloured
sheets to use.
Could I find anything like, in all my stash?
No!!
So... I hand coloured some white card, 
with my spectrum noirs and promarkers -
the same ones I had coloured the images with! 
Am I mad? Maybe...

I popped the image on 3d pads so it would stand off the card a little. 
The bottom white edge and the cat are diecut
 and the bottom edge of the blue, is punched.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Great impressions - feminine - 2 June

Spring flowers

Ikes Art is the sponsor over at Glitter n Sparkle this week..
I got this gorgeous image called "hanging basket."
for our 'anything goes' challenge this week.


I coloured the image with my spectrum noirs and promarkers. 
I added some white gelpen high-lights to the bracket
and a little wink of stella, too. 
I embossed the background, to give the impression of trellis 
and even added some corner diecuts, 
to accentuate the hanging basket bracket. 
(which I also covered with wink of stella - but it's hard to photograph!)
The sentiment is stamped - this came from Inkylicious
and I inked and embossed around the edges of the image and 
added a hand -tied organza ribbon.

A spring card

Spring, at last! 
well, this weekend, it is even feeling like summer!
Shame there is so much that needs "doing."

I was glad to take a bit of time out this week to create this card,
using FLOWER BIRD from Bugaboo,
for the weekly challenge at Glitter n sparkle. 

The image was so cute, I couldn't resist...
I used my promarkers and spectrum noirs to colour the image
and backed on dotty paper which I won in a challenge a little while ago. 
The purple paper
is a really good quality paper and I bought it in a paperpad
at poundland, last week! There were 4 different pads there...
and I got 2. 
Great quality and a great price for 32, A5 papers!

I took the ribbon from a box of chocolates that was wrapped with it! 
 A crafter wastes nothing! Lol...

Purple


This months challenge at Patties Creations is to use:
"Shades of purple"


I thought that 'Gymnast 2' would be the perfect image to use for this challenge.
I coloured and fussy-cut the image.

A crafty friend recently gifted me the stamp, 
to stamp the sentiment.
I punched the stars out of a glittery card.
The paper was from my stash - I have had that piece for years and years, and thought
it would be perfect for this challenge!
I added a hand -doodled border with my white chalk pen.

Mothers Day!

At Glitter n Sparkle, the challenge this week is to
make a card for "Mothers Day."


So I made a card for my Mum.
I was so pleased to get an image from Sami Stamps, this week!
I got "tower of whiskers" which I fell in love with, instantly.
Perfect for my Mum, as she is definately a cat lover - much like myself!

So, I coloured all the kitties with my spectrum noirs and promarkers,
I played around with different papers for the background, for ages
as I couldn't quite get a good combination together.

The white frame was diecut, as was the "mum" and the precious tied heart,
I visited "the Range" the day after I started making this card, and saw the kitty pawprint stamp...
infact, there were 3 different sized pawprints
in the set and I thought it would go perfectly...
and at 99p, considering all the cat cards I make, I thought 
it was a real bargain!
I embossed the back, light-brown strip 
with the pawprints folder I bought last yr on holiday.

I think this card will make my mum smile.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
