Morgan's Artworld Saturday Inspiration

Hiya ,for todays card ,I have chosen Angel ,the theme is Frame it . I coloured her in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card ..Then using one of my newer sets of Tonic dies called Ribbons and Bows..First drawing around and hand cutting the one around the image then cutting one in Holographic Silver for behind the image ,and a further one in Purple behind that to show through the holes..I hope by the angles in the pictures you can see how lovely the dies are and the beautiful Papers ,the top one being glittered ,and from First Edition's Mulberry Kisses ..These I just mounted onto silver as I wanted the image as focus..,not the backing card.Although the design is fairly simple it has taken as long as some of my other cards  with all the layering throughout..I was going to leave it unadorned ,but decided on the bow ,and popping the three pretty ribbon flowers in the center..then finishing with three gems on the bottom right..You will notice that one has moved ,but I had already put them on the blogs and now the naughty gem is in place ..must have knocked it ..sorry It is 6.40 in the morning and I have not been to bed yet so you must excuse my ibperfections lol! ....Thank You for popping by :)xx

Sasayaki Glitter Mid Month Inspiration Card

Hiya ,..This is my last Halloween card for this year ,so its a pretty one with a cute image..I think it is too cute to scare lol!..I have coloured her using Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah Solar White card,I then cut it,mounted it onto first Purple Centura Pearl then onto Black card..The background paper is rescued from my bits n bobs box ,so sorry not sure of the make as was a long way down..But it went perfectly with this..I wanted the image as the main focus on this card so only used one Paper and felt it would have looked a bit overcrowded if I had added more. So I mounted it onto black card then added the topper using 3D glue gel..The sentiment was created on the pc and was also mounted onto black card and added with 3D glue gel..To finish I added three flowers down the one side of the image and popped some pretty faux pearl gems into the center of them ..Thank you for visiting

Digital Delights By Louby Loo

I coloured this super cute image in with my Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card.. I then fussy cut her out leaving a slight border around her.The background papers are from Dovecrafts called Krafty Christmas ,I think it was from last year...These I have mounted onto red card..The fancy frame behind the image is a Tonic Die set called Tis the Season,This I coloured using a gold and green ink pad,this has given a nice rich and pretty background for the girl to be mounted onto.This I added with 3D glue gel and also the Girl too ..The sentiment from the die set ,I coloured with SN Sparkle pens and cut away the outer frame,as it is rather large and I wanted it to be slightly smaller..However it still looks lovely like this too..The hat and mittens a die set ,so sorry I do not know the make  ..I only wish I had backed them with white card now ,but will know next time..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Sasayaki Glitter New Release

Hiya..One thing with Halloween you can go crazy with colour and get away with it ,hence the green face lol!..I have coloured her in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card ,I then did a squiggle around the edge and added a few more spiders and a cobweb to help set the scene..I deliberately gave the background a dusty,puffy feel to add to the mood and of course a moon with the clouds and a bat flying over.This was then mounted onto black card as were the papers..These were from First Editions Mulbery Kisses..Ssorry they look beige on the picture but they are actually more Purple as the name Mulbery means..,for some unknown reason ,just does not show on the pics...After matting and layering the papers down I used a felt mat I have in my stash to pop behind the topper ..It really helps bring out the black in the card as well as looks a little creepy too.I placed this behind the topper which was then added using 3D glue Gel..To finish I used some tiny square gems I brought off Ebay,these look like sweeties so I drew some faux wrappers onto them and then glued the squares down ..these are my treats ,the trick is getting the lovely Dorrie onto the broom to fly off into the moonlight lol! ..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Guest designer 3D card

Hiya!..For this card I have used a lovely Lemon Shorbread image..My friend requested it to be done in 3D so this is my version..Boy its harder than just normal decoupage as you need to colour so much of each image so it does not show white on the edges..I have coloured her three times onto Neenah card with my Polychromos Pencils and fussy cut her out,I used 3D gel glue to build the layers as its easier for me as my fingers are not very nimble and I can add as much or little as I wish to get the depths I want too.
I used Tonic dies for the beautiful doily and the flower ,the papers are from First editions Mulberry Kisses and the Best Wishes are Tattered Lace..The papers and the flowers are matted onto Pink Centura Pearl..I used these as they give a soft shimmer to the card which is really pretty in both daylight and night light too..The dies used behind the image itself are ones I got from China ,so sorry no name for them just a great bargain for me lol!..I used white card to back the leaves and the flowers and a pretty pearlised resin rose was popped into the center of each on to finish..Thank you for visiting today :)xx

This has been done for a web site which is

Saturday Inspiration Morgans Artworld

Hiya I have been waiting ages to colour this one ,I think she is so pretty I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card...The frame is a shop brought chip board frame which came in two pieces.I covered the front with glitter paper from First Editions Desert Blooms and used some torn off cuts from a piece of paper from their Mulberry Kisses pad to bring a bit more colour and texture into the frame.For the decoration I used Burlap ribbon and some pretty floral lace ,I backed the lace with the ribbon at the bottom to make it stand out more ,but used it as a band as you can see and a bow on the top.To finish I added some shop brought blooms and added pearlescent roses to the center of each one..I would have added acetate to cover the picture ,but it photographs better without..
The frame just cost a pound ,and could make a lovely gift or a special card, a keepsake for a special birthday or wedding can use a coloured image or even a photograph to make it special ..its will make someone smile that they have something so bespoke and made with love too ..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Sasayaki Glitter New Challenge Card

I have coloured the freebie from last month for this challenge card..It is one of those cute fun monster ones that when you were a kid you wished you thought monsters were like ha! ha!.Mine had glowing eyes and watched me in the dark ..but I digress ..I have coloured this with Polychromos onto Neenah card.I then fussy cut them out as I had a plan,yep it changed a few times and I decided to go with this ..and I ran out of time,had to have a few days off ..never mind all done and I know any child would love this :)..
All the papers I have used are from my scrap bin of odds n ends so I cannot remember which they are as some have come from big sheets.I have matted onto black card and layered them all up giving a lot of movement and a a complete sense of I don't normally do much Halloween until this year I do not have any dies to decorate,so I brought the fun colours of the papers out by adding matching buttons..and to finish I added a few cobwebs with a white pen on the darker paper ..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Digital Delights By Louby Loo..New Release

It's New release day at Digital Delights today..This lovely image comes in a set which also includes a sentiment and a lovely letterbox too. I have just chosen to do the figure as this time I chose the paper first . I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card and have fussy cut her leaving a white edge around her to make her stand out a bit more from darker background and to be added to the card with 3D gel glue when its constructed..
The papers I used are Craftwork Cards Festive Chalkboards..These papers are so beautiful and it is nice that there are also a couple of scenes included in the pad too,this is one of them,and just perfect for the lovely figure too.I matted the papers onto gold card and for the decorations I have used CC Classic Snowflakes which I also cut from the gold card,using the off cuts so no waste on this card which is great.I layered the whole set for the large one in the bottom corner ,but just cut the small one single ..I then added pretty red gems to the centers that have a small gold snowflake on those as well..Quite a simple card but the matting makes it look rich and the gold snowflakes finish it perfectly ..Thank you for popping by :)xx

I have coloured her wit Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card. I then drew around the die I wanted to use so that it got the main part of her in it and then fussy cut her out..Then cut out the background with a lovely raspberry coloured card  I found in my stash , last two sheets too,but goes nice with her hair.This was cut on my Ebosser though for crispness..I added the cut topper then to this with 3D glue gel and left to one side to dry..The die I used is by Yvonne Creations and it is called Magnificent Christmas frame YCD10001 ,I sent for this from America ,but these dies are slowly coming over to the UK now and they have some lovely designs too so watch out for them .The papers are from Tonics Folksey Florals and I feel these just worked beautifully with the image..The flowers are from LeCrea'Designs and is Multi flower 009 or no. Leane'451550 so hope this finish I added some pretty gems to the center and some very sparkly heart gems scattered around..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Sasayaki Glitter New Release SPOOKY!!

This is one cute owl I have coloured him in using the Touch Five pens everyone is talking about on FB ..They perfom really well for the money so I have had a really good workout with them,As you who visit me now and then know I usually use Pencils as not very good with pens at all.
I wanted to keep this bright and fun so I chose to do the wiggly line thing around the outside of the image ,then a few blacked in sections..I matted onto Purple Mirri card as its Halloween and its brighter and fun instead of black..The papers for this one are from Tonic, from the Simply Blossoms paper pad.these too were mounted onto the purple Mirri.I placed some sort of grassy feeling ribbon that florists use  behind where the main image was going to go ,then glued the topper in place with 3D glue to help hold it in place ...then to finish some gold plastic stars were added ..Thank you for visiting :)xx
