Sketch Saturday ..Mmendel Illustrations

Hiya..Been busy this week I know ,but last one hehe ..I coloured this really pretty mermaid with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card ..I then cut her out using Tattered Lace Basic Ovals and did a pink mat to pop her on using card from Hunkydory..I used this also for the papers too ..These were also from Hunkydory from their Delightful Deco pad.. These are silky papers that add a nice shimmer to them,not my favorites because they are a little thin for my liking but they do look nice on the card..
For the shape on the side I folded a piece of card in half and carefully cut the shape out allowing for the depth of the oval and and just a bit more,then I fussy cut it out,then transfered it to the paper I was using..,this saved making mistakes on the best paper..Then I glued it onto the mat and fussy cut that out too ,not perfect but it is something very different .. The flowers are from CC English country Garden range ,I used the smaller flower on this card..The design merited two but I felt it looked odd so I added three,to finish I added a computer generated sentiment and some pretty resin roses to the center of the flowers..
Thank you for taking the time to pop by :)xx

All The Colours of the Rainbow Challenge at Sasayaki Glitter

Hiya..Quite a simple fun 6x6 card for the start og the new challenge..The image has been coloured with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card,I did the background sky with pastel chalks to keep it soft and natural..Dont forget to spray with fixative if you use these..I use an old trick taugt me at school by my lovely art teacher,use Hairspray..I just use an own brand one not a fancy one..I have tried to add all the colours of the rainbow as accurate as I can with the colours I have to the main picture..but I had no paper that has so many colours in so had to go for the lovely shimmering Do crafts Painted blooms pad for the ones I have used..The card is Hunkydory Adorable Scorable..I doodled across the center strip of green card and added all sorts of size and coloured buttons to finish..It has made a fun card suitable for a boy or a girl..Thank you for popping by :) xx

New Release Day at Sasayaki Glitter

It is nice to do a baby card for a change ..he is super cute too isn't he with his little monkey ..I have coloured him and his blanket (which is my addition and not with the stamp)..with my Polychromos onto Neenah card and done the background with pastel chalks....I have used Tattered Lace Desert Rose Doily Nested dies for the cutting out of the finished image and the backing card..I have used these on a slant as it seemed to take the image better this way..The card I mounted the papers and the image on is from Hunkydory.. The papers are from a First Editions Neroli paper pad..The one paper which was double sided I quartered and mixed the two patterns to give more interest ,and then I did a bit of faux stitching around then to help them pop a bit more..The cute buttons and baby die cuts are from my fast growing collection from China ..
Thank you for popping by :) xx

Sketch Saturday New Challenge

Hiya..Well this is my first Christmas Card for this year..I have used fab images from Digi Stamp Boutique,well worth having a visit and having a look,the little cuties I have used were part of a set of four and they were under £1.50 so could not complain ..I have coloured them in with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card..Then cut them and mounted them onto silver iridescent card.I have uses Tonic's thick glitter like a sparkling glue in a triangle bottle to put a bit of sparkle where the snow would be and in the center of the flowers as if they have had snow balls thrown at them, thats my story and sticking to it  lol!,it still moves although thick and mistakes happen is all I will say ..not used it since last year ..The papers I have used are from Polkadoodles Winnie Winter Wonderland..I have to hunt my papers out from last year ,they are in a box in the bedroom I hope.So I used these instead as easily reached ..These were also mounted onto the same card ,as was the computer generated sentiment for the middle of the card..The flowers were cut from some red mirri card and the leaves from the left over card from the mounting sheets..These were all cut from a set of dies from China..There is one other larger leaf and flower ,but i only used the smaller ones for this card as I thought with the images being so small it would over whelm them if the blooms ere too big..

Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Reminder

I coloured this lovely image with my Polychromos pencils ,I added white Uni  Gel pen to the sea for texture as you will see in the middle picture and the background is done using pastel chalks....I then cut it out and added it to black card..The background papers are from a Polkadoodles CD rom called Winnie and Rocco Starfish and Sandcastles..a very yummy cd ..I have layered the plainer papers onto black card and added them to the left to sit under the image and used a square off one paper to go into the one corner with the fish on..To finish I also added some fishes I cut our from another sheet ,bent them slightly so they would stand proud from the page and added them with 3D glue..I love playing with lovely papers and cutting them up and using them to create the card,it makes them very different and very individual finish I off- set cut the sentiment RELAX and backed with black ,shaped it into a flag and attached with 3D glue, this adds a little more movement to the card..

WWODT Monthly Challenge Card

I have done a pretty little easel card for this image..Made using glitter card in a pretty blue, sparkled with other colours...I have used a lovely set of dies to cut the majority of the layers out,these were from China as were the flower dies too, over allI have kept the the feeling the card delicate and pretty as is the image..I love this one since I first saw Julia's launch of  it.. before I was on this team...
I wanted to turn her more mermaid than girl so I tinted the skin too ,but not enough that she looks odd..I left the background plain for this one as I felt after all the hours of work on her I just could not risk making any mistakes..Yup! been there ,got the book lol !..She is coloured as usual in Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..
Thank you for popping by :)xx

Sasayaki Glitter New Release Day

I had a lot of fun playing with this image..I coloured her with my Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..I used rich blues and Turquoises, pinks,oranges ,yellows and greens etc throughout..I have kept the card design simple as I think the image says it all,and is decorative in itself..The image and the Papers are all mounted onto craft card..The background one is from DCWV Floral Stack ,the dotty paper I thought would represent is from my off cut from my box its a Tonic paper..And the soft green antique looking one behind the image is from a pad I had from a magazine a long time ago and is a Prima Botanical 6x6 paper pad..What I love about doing these types of cards is you can use up all the odd bits that are lying in a box because they were just too good to throw away.I did the soft backgroundbehind the image with blue's and a green pastel chalks to finish..
Thank you for coming by :)xx
