Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Inspiration Card

Hiya...I have used my Polychromos Pencils but I have gone back onto my Neenah card for this on..I really enjoyed doing this one ,such a pretty little image,and so summery,shame here in the uk we dont seem to be having one this year lol!..I have backed all my work onto beautiful Kanban card that goes from one colour to another ,all the colours are the same,subtle but very pretty..The background paper is from Dovecraft Painted Blooms and the  smaller panels in the center are from some off cuts from another project I did from Dovecrafts Bohemien a while ago...The Flowers are cut from a medium sized punch from Hobycraft and to finish them off I have added cream resin roses to the center ,the pink brings the colour from the dress and the flowers in the paper into the card too..Thank you for popping by

Sasayaki Glitter New Release Day

Hiya for todays image I used Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils on their paper for pencils..Once completed I cut around the image leaving a small white line around the edge.I then mounted some First Edition papers from the Love Letter pad onto the craft card ,glued in the in the insert sheet and then put some lace across the middle of the front piece before attaching it and making sure it was firmly fixed at the back with red tape before adding it to the card base.I then matted some Kanban Happy Birthday card onto some craft card ,added some pink ribbon around it and a bow and stuck this down with some Collall glue as I had to make sure it would stick over the lace on the backing card..To finish I used 3D Collall glue to stick the image to the card to lift her slightly from the background and a pretty faux pearl resin rose to the center of the bow..Thank you for popping by :)xx

KleoKatra Competition for Knitty Kitty Digis

This is a great bit of fun for everyone..Here I have coloured Kleokatra myself ,I have used Polychromos Pencils onto Faber Castel Sketch pad paper which is for pencils,but I have used the back of it as I have mentioned before I found it a bit too textured for my liking,the back is much smoother.I then cut her out leaving a tiny line around her so that she stands out..I then added First Editions Neroli papers as they have like jewels in orangey red on them and it sort of went with this theme.These I added to craft card then onto the blank card.. I then cut a piece of blue plain Neroli paper for the background and used an off cut from one of First Editions Christmas paper pads for the sand,it is glittery and just looks so pretty and a nice texture on the blue..I then trimmed this level with the blue and mounted first onto craft card then onto some gold card..To make the pyramids I cut to triangles from craft card ,marked them with a brick effect and darkened the edges with pastel chalks..came out better than I thought was pleased .I added this to the card leaving it over lapping slightly..I also added some stars with a Uniball Sigma white pen at this stage .Then slightly bent Kleo and added her with 3D glue gel...

Sasayaki Glitter Mid Challenge Inspiration Card

Hiya..Been having a bit of a play with this one..I have used the Faber Castelle Paper for pencils to colour this cute image on..I am not sure if I like the texture of it ,it does take the pencil beautifully cannot fault it for that but it makes the finish look a bit rougher than my usual..But I will see how I get on as I have another few projects printed on it ready to colour.. I have used my Polychromos pencils to colour the image with..
I then mounted it onto some orange card and then, using some Tonic backing papers I mounted these onto the same card too , using some of the card offcuts , I added a few punched daisies ,finished the centers with blue gems and added them to the card..To finish I used a computer generated sentiment and also mounted it onto some of the same card and popped one of the daisies onto the edge of one side ..

Sassayaki Glitter New Release Card

Hiya,I had some fun with this lovely new image..I coloured her using my Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..after I had coloured her I added the background to her and the pot of Daffodils ,was hoping in vain for a bit of spring before now lol!.. I then mounted her first on some brown spotted paper then onto some craft card..To set the card off a bit more I did a dot dash pattern around it/
The beautiful papers on this card are from First Editions Desert Blooms ,The main paper is very pretty and has encapsulated glitter on it too...I love First Editions papers as they all co-ordinate so beutifully together and the papers are so varied and so nice, and thick enough that the glue does not go through it as it does on some thinner papers.I created a border with an off cut ,mounted it onto craft card then I cut out a lacy border from BoBunny, #Elegant Border Die and the number is 12839810 if you want to look it up..I then added the pearlised roses and the round pearls to jazz it up a bit more..

Playing with Watercolour Pencils

While I have been away Ill I have had time to sit and playwith my own drawings ..I also was lucky to get some Faber Castel Durer Albrieght (I think that's how it is spelt)  pencils for my Christmas and Birthday present ,so lucky ,and just had to play lol! as you do
The first one I did was for my friend's Grandson,She had made him a fabulous Tepee for his birthday and I sat and drew and inked up this little indian the one night ,offered her it as a digi and she said too hard to colour ,so I did it as a picture for the little one to go with the tent..She was made up,so was her Daughter and the Grandson..Thats why I like drawing lol!

The second was for another friend who wanted a Sheep for a young girl who loves Sheep ,I sat for hours to get it done so she could get it onto the card and get it to her in time ,another happy friend ..

And finally I was shown a silly soft toy and asked to do a card with it on so I used a little artistic liscence ,changed the colour slightly and a few things and this is what I came up with lol!..I have not shown the card as it was personalised ..
So I have not just been sitting doing nothing  in the months I have been away ,but back on with the cards again now 

Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Reminder Inspiration Card

Hiya.. It seems ages since I last posted ,but I have been very ill and have been getting over blood clots on both of my I needed time for me and not the cards lol!..but I am back now and will be posting as usual ..Todays card I am thrilled with as I love this image,I have been meaning to do her for a while ,she is one of Sasayaki Glitter's older ones ,but she is so cute,the link is below for her .. I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card,then mounted her onto craft card.
The papers I used are Hunkydory Florabunda,some very pretty papers in this pad ,well worth having it in your stash..These were also mounted onto craft card and because the brown paper bag type paper looked similar I popped a faux stitch border around it to make it stand out a little more.
The pretty floral dies I used were cut from a scrap of Centura Pearl in pink using some of my bargain dies from China..I am still not well enough to hunt through dies like I usually do ,but as luck had it these were handy,I finished them off by shaping them and adding some pretty blue gems to the center ..I then added a pretty small pink spotted ribbon to the top corner to finish.
