Exclusive!

Hi! Over at the Colour Crazy Challenge this week, we sadly do not have a sponsor.
However, it does mean that we can use an image from any sponsor we like...
I used a new image from Patties Creations ...

Infact, it is soooo new, that it's not even out there yet.,.. 
so this is exclusive!
All I can say is, keep watching Patties page for this very cute and versatile image..
coming very soon!



 I just loved how I could make this image look so different 
for my sister and her family.
I used my promarkers and other alcohol pens to colour the mugs of delicious hot choc.
I tried to colour each mug like a mug I would choose to buy each of her family. 
Before I printed the images, I used a different sentiment to put their names on.

All the rest of the card needed, was a few
diecut snowflakes, a stamped sentiment and a cute slice of christmassy paper
for the mugs to sit on.

I think this one will make my sister smile.

I also think I will be making more on a similar theme for other family members...

Party time!

 November is here already and it's tome for
another challenge at Pattie's CReations.

This time, I have used the image "Pinata and 2 maracas"
(but I didn't use the maracas on this card)


It w\s a lovely image to colour and fussy-cut.
I used a bow from my "precious hearts" die cut shape
and stamped and coloured the bough on blue paper.
The image has been stamped and I inked 
and faux-stitched around the edges.

Cheers!

For our latest challenge at "The Colour Crazy Challenge"
we have welcomed our sponsor :  Scribbles designs. 
I got the fab image, beer mugs. 


 I printed the image twice, as a mirror image so that I could
"clink" the mugs together.
I coloured them using my promarkers and other alcohol pens
and added a backing paper, which I inked the edges of.
I cut out the sentiment on my big-shot and 
punched some stars, along with using a little
dovecrafts pearl effects, to act as bubbles, popping from the mugs. 
I embossed the outside edge of the card with a simple, straight line
and hand-drew a simple border around the edge of the patterned paper.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

School days

Over at Pattie's Creations this month, Pattie's challenge
is "anything goes / school days."
I went along the school days theme, but with a twist..


 This card is for my Niece, who has just got her A-Level results 
and got into Uni. I'm so proud of her!

The image comes as a set of pencils, which I cut up - a very easy fussy-cut. 
I used my promarkers and other alcohol markers to colour the pencils. 
I stamped the sentiment,which came in a set I got on the car boot sale a few weeks ago.
I inked the edges in allsorts of colours, to give a rainbow effect edge.

Cute camera girl

 At The Colour Crazy Challenge this time, 
we are being sponsored by "All Dressed Up."
I have used the gorgeous image called,
"Smile - it's your birthday!"

I coloured the image with my promarkers and other alcohol pens
 and used a lovely trendy flower backing paper behind it. 
The image some with the sentiment, placed where it is on my card,
so all I wanted to add was the recipients name (which I handwrote).
I inked the edges of everything,
dry embossed a line around the backing paper 
and added  a few punched butterflies and a few dovecraft paper
 flowers, layered on top of each other.

Here is a close-up...

Summer fun

At Patties Creations, her challenge this week is 
beach / under the sea / anything goes. 
I used her fab image called "Hang Thirty"
(I have no clue what this means, or why it's called this..hahah)


I coloured the sand, fence and sky first, with my promarkers and alcohol pens. 
I added some white brilliance inkpad swirls to form clouds, and 
a little white sakura pen to give them slight definition.
I paper-pieced the surfboards and inked the edges
and made some little bunting out of the same papers. 
The "birthday" is a diecut. I handwrote "Happy" and "Charlie"
