Beautiful Morgan Fitszimmons Selkie and Seal

Todays card is done once more from the beautiful CD from Crafter's Companion Flights of Fantasy.. This is my most favourite CD to date,but that is because I am really into fantasy creatures anyway.All the papers and the image are painted from the cd..I mounted the papers onto craft card but the first layer and the top of the card I sprayed with Sparkle and Spray Gold as I wanted a bit of shimmer ,then mounted the other into craft card ,also the insert.Stuck all these down with Collall A;; Purpose Glue . The topper took me ages to colour as it was a lot of popping to one side and tweeking until I had what I envisaged , must have been in excess og 8 hrs,but was well worth it..She is coloured as usual in Pencils and I also mounted her onto Craft card,but added her to the card with Collall 3D glue gel..The leaves are a Sue Wilson die (was meant to represent seaweed lol well idea was there )  and the flowers are the wild rose from Sheena's perfect pairs from Crafter's Companion ,,love this die it is my go for die and looks different each time..The card base is 8x8 and this is definitely a show stopper on the shelf ..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Same but Different at My Besties UK..Steampunk

What a fun card and I have so enjoy doing these same but different cards with the team each of us do something so very different so mine is just totally different for ME lol hence more fun ,so I hope you like it.. I coloured her in with Polychromos on Neenah card ,then mounted her onto Black card ..I used an 8x8 card base.  Using Crafters Companion Sheenas stamping card I embossed it with the clock embossing folder ,also CC.. I then coloured it to match the Topper and using Renaissance Gold Pebeo Gilding wax I highlighted the clock faces ,looks really great ,first time I have used this and love it ..I then Mounted it into Black card and stuck to card base with Collall All purpose glue.I then used Collall 3D gel glue and positioned the topper into position..I cut out two sets of branches in black from the dies in the Kimono Range Cherry Blossom and the Birdhouse in Black card ,then I cut the birdhouse in White with a hint of gold Centura Pearl,then two sets of flowers and glues all as shown,here and finally a sentiment cut in Centura Pearl from the new Only Words Diesire dies...There will be an insert in when it goes to the recipient ..Thank you for looking :)xx

613 Challenge theme add a Moon or Stars

I had so much fun with this Bugaboo Stamp this time .. I sat with her partially coloured for a bit as you do ,to think ..then this is what happened..She is coloured in Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card.I hand drew the forhround onto the topper and coloured to finish.. I then mounted all my DCWV papers and toppers onto Mauve Centura Pearl ..I took an 8x8 card folded one half in half and decorated with the papers..Then I added another layer of papers and Centura Pearl to my Topper ,then added it to the bottom section ..I die-cut a couple of small circles and a small flower and stuck to the backing card this is to hold the card..However I must say that fine if you want to try my dimensions but to be honest I found it a bit bulky and would keep slipping out of the stop..So I think perhaps a smaller version might be better ..It is my first attempt of one of these :)xx

Under the Sea..Scrappers Delights

Todays card was a complete bit of fun.. The image I had from Scrappers Delights was just the Mermaid , I coloured her in with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah cars..I had her on my shelf and wondered what to do with her as I had no embellishments to suit ..so I thought I would use my lesser known talent and draw the background and a few embellishments on too..It took about nine hours from start to finish but she is so adorable..I mounted her onto some Kanban card I brought years ago as it is silver and has many colours on it ..looks great on this type of card..I then embossed som of Sheena's stamping card and coloured with Tim Holtz ink pads and a duster brush..love these they do not hurt my fingers so great to build colour on top of each other too.,Mounted that behind the main picture then added more silver ..To finish I created a card to fit from Centura Pearl..the actual image dimensions..not of any use as each of us use digi stamps at different sizes..thanks for taking the time to look :)xx

The lovely image of the Mermaid only can be found here
