Christmas in July

I’ve been reminded today that the other side of the world is having winter!  and since I’m on the design team for an Australian Challenge Blog I thought it fitting to make a ‘Chilly Card’.

The new sketch challenge for A & T Digital Design starts today, so you know what you need to do! pop along and make a card following the sketch provided.

I’ve used an A & T Digital Image, one drawn by the talented Anita, she’s been busy doing more this week, so keep an eye out.

I’ve coloured using copics and embellished using lots of different bits from my craft stash!

I am also entering this card into the following challenges;

The Paper Players – Christmas In July

The Squirral & The Fox – Christmas In July

Thank you for stopping by

Dazzle It! – Challenge #22

Dazzle It! – Challenge #22

Hello Everyone!

It’s been a busy Easter Term with the kids, taking them here and there, I didn’t think I would get my Design Team card done in time, just as well I’d prepared it earlier!

The Theme for this challenge is ‘Dazzel it’ with glitter, gem stones and pearlstones.  The image is an EFG digital stamp called Ally.

I have coloured her using promarkers and glittered her wings and the flower petals.

I used 3 beautiful fabric flowers with pearlstones as their centres to add a little extra ‘dazzle’.  All card stock and papers are from Stampin Up’.

Don’t forget to go enter the challenge yourself, just follow the link here A & T Digital Designs Challenge #22. Hope to see you there!

A & T Digital Design Sketch Challenge #2

Hello!

Bee Movie! Have any of you seen it?  I bought it for my kids a few years ago and they had it on replay for weeks, we have recently rediscovered it and yes, it’s on replay again!  Sebastian has had it hidden in his bedroom for a few weeks and forbidden Josephine to remove it, much to her dismay!

Anyway………………… Sebastian went for a 2 hour bike ride this morning, so Josephine put on her GI Jane guise and snuck in and took it! It’s now on replay in the living room GREAT!  The theme tune to it is ‘Here Comes the Sun!’ If you can’t think of it, think ‘M&S’ adverts at the moment!

Bee Movie has inspired my next card! I’ve disigned it for the A & T Digital Design Sketch Challenge #2, all the details are on their blog.

This is my finished card, I’ve used Eva The Honey Bee!

I’ve shaded all the edges of papers with Scattered Straw Tim Holtz Distress Inks, and used papers and card stock from my scrap box! Couldn’t resist the sentiment, let’s hope it puts a spring in our steps!  The image has been coloured using Pro-markers, Ice Grey 2,3,4 and Buttercup, Pastel yellow and Sunflower, wings pale citrus and then glittered.

Thank you for looking and once again I look forward to seeing what you all do with this wonderful sketch.

The other challenges I have entered this card into are;

Fun Fairy Fridays – Anything goes

Inspire Me Fridays – Always Anything goes

Catch the Bug – Anything goes
