Aurora Shimmer Butterfly

I was going to enter the monthly challenge unfortunately on this instance I am not knowledgable enough on their link system to be able to go into it ..but I will get there  .. It is only because I am new to Blogs .
I have coloured the beautiful image using my SN pens and pencils..The Dies in the background are Tonic and the paper is a free paper that came with a craft magazine,unfortunately I do not remember which one as it was some time ago..The papers are  foiled and I did not want to hide them so I put the frame and image behind them and built them up like a decoupage then I cut a lot of punched flowers and placed them on the top to give the card more depth and texture too .. 
Thank you for visiting and I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it xx

Gardening Beautie

Another beautiful Sherri Baldi Digi.. Loved this one as soon as it came out ,so off to the shop I went lol..She is coloured in with my SN pens and pencils..I added the little bit of garden at the background ,it is not a stamp it is my own art work .I mounted and layered her onto black cardstock as I think it showcases the digis off beautifully...The background paper is a Lilli of the Valley( Nit Wits)  paper pack called Bonnets and bows.The cut out embellishments on the backgrounds and the butterfly are cut files of the Silhouette Online Store.Flower embellishments are from my stash ..Thank you for visiting x

Tammi Buchaneer Saturated Canary

Well after my last card I felt quite humbled as I am in a group on Facebook called Card Crafters Uk and I put the previous card on in there and to my suprise I had 130 likes from it..Boy was I amazed... Right .Todays card is an image which was a freebie from Saturated Canary ,who's group I am also in.. Her name is Tammie Buckaneer, so I kept with the sea faring theme throughout even with fluffy flowers a bit like sea She is coloured in SN pens and pencils. I have also coloured the embelishments so that they match with the main image.. I matted and layered using black card and craft card.. The card itself is an experiment for me as I have never done one before ,it is a tent card I made the measurements up as I went along, but next time I really must make the gusset a bit wider.The doiley at the back is a Tattered Lace die to which I cut it up to spread it along the top of the topper..One last thing ,I have been asked a few times where I got the wood stamp from..I did not I drew it on to give her some grounding..Thanks for visiting :)

Purple Flutter-bye Kisses

This is my entry for the Sherri Baldi UK monthly challenge ..the theme is PURPLE.. I have called this creation Bows n Roses.. It has taken me two days to create . Firstly I coloured her in with Spectrum Noir
Pens and Pencils..( I will not go into all the numbers I never read them ) I went right through the purple and lavender range.. I am pleased with her as I love her because she is a bit like me messy lol..but that is as far as it goes  grrr!!.. The background paper is off one of the Papermania Capsule collection cd's I have , which is mounted onto black..I have used a Tattered Lace die,cut in half down the one side..Just had these too...WOW!!! they are amazing ,they needed no poking pushing or pulling they just pop out to get some more of these .On the other side I have used a heart Tattered lace die over an Urban stamp Postcard stamp..Which I paid a fiver for and went to the Range and found it there for three quid...well did my mouth drop.. note to self ..let fingers do walking hehe..I then finished it of with some leaves from my stash and cut some roses ,rolled them and stuck them on..Because I wanted her to really be the main feature I dis not want to distract with fluff and glitter ..I think the image speakes for itself..Got to make a box for this on ..gone over the edge ..ohhh.. well ..Shes worth it .

Rugby Lapashe

For this on it was a bit of a rush and luckily I have one of the La Pashe cd's..I did not use the backgrounds as I find them very limited ,so I decided to chose on from many I have on my pc ...I changed it to blue as it looked better with the picture and made it pop more and I wanted to use the green plain card from my stash to add to the background layering.. As normal did not use the set decoupage so I chose to enlarge the original slightly and print it off six times to give it a lot of depth..It worked Wonderfully and it looks as if they are popping of the page..Good result for me and a Happy Son -in-Law who asked me to make it for a mate at work.. Why are men's cards always so boring, but at least this one was not YET ANOTHER Football card lol ..

Tatty Twinkles Stamped card

I am Proud of this card. It is the first one that I have ever completely done with stamps.. I have just entered it into the Polka Doodles..Got to get some more of these lovely stamps Because I have Arthritis I tend to steer away from things that put too much pressure on my fingers ,But I have found as long as I press evenly and leave a few seconds it works fine and I get a brilliant image..Secret ..PATIENCE and you CAN do thing just look at it another way.. I wanted this nice and bright and used cardstock from a pad from Hobbycraft called Spring time, their own make too was a good price as well great as it means I can craft in the early hours without the printer..this is from the Twinkle and Tatters range ..But She is so pretty ..Coloured her in with Spectrumnoir Pens and Pencils.. Hope you love her too :)
