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...

I would like to add this into the following challenges:

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"

Over at The Colour Crazy Challenge this week,
we are being sponsored by Fred She Said.

I got this simply lovely image, called Floral 1. 

As soon as I saw this image, I knew I wanted to make a simple card. 
 It was a lovely image to colour with my promarkers. 
The background was embossed on my bigshot.
The sentiment was stamped.
Punched butterflies finished off this card.

Summer Fun

Hi all!
Its the start of our new challenge at Patties Creations! 
The challenge is always anything goes, or a theme runs each month too - 
this time it is 'Summer Fun!'

 I used images from 2 of Patties sets: Flip flop trio and Seashells border 2. 
The Flip Flops were fun to colour - They come in a set of 3
but I chose 2 pairs and made them look fun and summery,
with my promarkers and other alcohol pens.
I tore up a piece of sandy looking card and white card, layered them over a blue paper
to form a sand/ sea combo. 
The white was tucked just under the brown, to look like the water's edge.
I printed the seashells rather small and coloured them too. 
I added a touch of stickles to the blue paper, to give sparkly reflections of the sea. 
The sentiment is from a new set of stamps I got recently, from a bootsale
and I added the heart so close that it looks like part of the word (I hope!).
I carefully edged all edges with ink pads.
I am pleased with this card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Creative knockouts - outside fun - 7 July
Crafty gals - atg - 13 July
Passion for markers - just not birthday - 5 July
Jan's Digi Stamps - atg - 6 July

Girly birthday

Welcome to my blog!
I'd like to share a card I made for my DT position at The Colour Crazy Challenge Blog - 

I used an image from a new sponsor for us - Conie Fong.
This one is called "Princess Molly with balloon"
I coloured this with my promarkers and other alcohol pens 
and popped it on 3d foam pads, with some co-ordinating papers behind. 
The butterflies are from my Martha Stewart punch and I diecut the lacey border.
The balloon has been covered with glossy accents to give it that shiny look.

My favourite springtime flower

At Pattie's Creations this month,
I have used the lovely image "sweet nectar" 
for her "anything goes / things that fly" challenge...

I coloured this image with my promarkers and other alcohol pens,
and added some slight glimmer with a Wink of Stella
on the bird. The utterflies were punched and the fancy corner is
a cuttlebug diecut shape.
The sentiment was stamped and I layered it all on 
a piece rom a 6 x 6 paperpack which I bought in The Works.

A fab new sponsor for our team...

 Welcome back! Thanks for visiting me to see what I've been up to. 
I've been enjoying myself recently, with images from a new sponsor 

Their images are gorgeous and new to me, 
and I couldn't resist using both images to make cards with.
My first card uses the image "donut stack."
The sentiment comes with the image - and there are a few other sentiments too, 
which my teammies have used. 
I coloured the image with my promarkers and other alcohol pens
and popped it onto a lovely backing paper - kraft paper with white hearts on 
(recently bought in Hobbycraft).
I added a strip of stripy paper and some "confetti" - 
which I had forgottten all about, until I started putting this card together. ..

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

My next card also uses a Twinkle Lane Designs image:  New Baby.
This was so lovely to colour with my promarkers and I used so many different blues!
I 3d-foamed the rattles ad alphabet blocks, matted and layered,
added some punched butterflies and a bit of dry embossing around the edge. 
For the sentiment, I used half of a diecut shape, 
inked around the edges and I hand-wrote the "welcome!" myself.

At last...

I'm a bit late with this - sorry! 
Our challenge over at Pattie's Creations is anything goes - or Flowers.
I used Patties delightful image - potted daffodils. 
I made it into a mothers day card for my mum...

 I coloured the daffs and pot with my promarkers and other alcohol pens and 
fussy-cut some of the daffs, to put on 3d foam to give them some depth.
I used the head of one of the daffs and drew a stalk to it, to use as a flower along the bottom of the 
pc generated sentiment. 
The butterfly is also one of Patties images, coloured in the same way.
I sat the image on the edge of the frame,
dry embossed the edges of the white rectangle, and added a diecut 
corner in the top right hand corner.

My Mum was thrilled with this card. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Dragonfly dreams - butterflies and or flowers - June 5
Sheepski designs - for the girlz - 1 June
