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 www.barnemix.no

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 etc..you 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 fun..as 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

Twinkle toes the Little Troll

Hiya,I saw one of these of FB the other day and I know I am no longer on the team but ..Well she is just adorable and I just fancied colouring for me as a change ,and I do have Birthdays coming up soon too so I shall use it for one of those.and I just had to have her lol!..
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 helps..to finish I added some pretty gems to the center and some very sparkly heart gems scattered around..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Hiya ,todays challenge card has been made with an image from Toadstool Printable's on Etsy..There are some really pretty quirky stamps of little people and flowers with animals as well as more this type of image ..,so worth having a look through.

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
