Saturday Sketch..Fred she Said Digis

hiya..for today's card I have chosen this lovely image from Fred She Said..It is in digi form and also can be purchased in pre- coloured too ,so it covers all skill levels..They have some really lovely images,so worth having a visit there..I have coloured the image in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card and have used Pastel chalks for the background..I mounted her onto craft card and the backing papers too..These were from First Editions Floral Pavilion and the flags/tags not sure what they are called are cut from odds and ends from my scrap box..Layouts like this are fabulous for using some of the odd bits up.I have draw wavy edges around the patterned papers as I thought it made them look like material..but have left the plain ones alone as when it is sold or given to someone I shall pop the sentiments onto them...I finished with a brought bloom and flower rather than using a star ..You just have to keep close to the layout and can swap a star for flower etc .
Thank you for popping by :0xx

Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Reminder Card

Todays Reminder card was coloured with Polychromos pencils onto Neenah card ,the background was done in pastel chalks to keep it soft..The backing paper is from a remininent of a pad I brought from Lidl a few years back and has encapsulated glitter on it ,so pretty ..and I felt it would go so nicely with the image as it is so suitable for a young boy..This was layered onto yellow linen type  card..I cut a piece of navy and made it into a pennant shape and did some faux stitching in white around it ..I then mounted it on the same yellow card as the background..Placing it across the center of the card. Then returned to the topper, drew around  an oval basic die,Doing this so that the clouds could over hang the cut area.. I fussy cut a wobbly line around the image..It's a good way to camouflage if your not good at cutting ,but in my case I just wanted it that way..I then used the next size die up and cut it in the same yellow card as the rest ,but this time I drew a black wobbly line around the edge to give it a bit more interest..I added the topper to this with 3D glue gel and then added it to the card the same way too ,giving the image height from the main card..To finish three orange larger buttons were added to one side with three yellow smaller buttons to the center of the orange ones..

Sasayaki New release

For todays New release card I have used my Polychromos to colour the image,then used pastel chalks to colour the soft background behind the image..Then I gave it a quick spritz with Hair Spray to set the chalks..Then used a Dutch Doobadoo template I  cut out the main card while the image was drying ..I created an easel card for this one and used a cream card,,craft card and  then added some pretty Bird paper from one of my Tonic paper pads..I put a funny faux stitch around the paper and craft card to make a feature around it..I did this on both the bottom and the main part..I then created the stop for holding the card in place using the same material and setting it with 3D glue gel..I then popped this to one side to allow the glue to go off..I then cut the topper out and framed that with craft card ,but before doing so I did my funny wiggly stitch around it to give it more of a frame..This was then Stuck in place using the 3D glue ..I cut out the small butterflies in the Tattered Lave Tuck in Butterflies..This I then gently pushed into place and it glued itself in without doing any damage to the topper..or compromising the Glue..I then coloured a number of the tiny butterflies that were left over from the die and sprinkled them around the top..
For the bottom I used Tonic Sweet Melia flower dies and cut them from some pink off cuts ,I coloured the leaves green ,I was going to leave them white,but felt it looked too pale..Once glued into place I added some little wooden flower Buttons I had in my stash ,then topped them off with a pretty sparkly pearl gems.To finish I added a few of the colourd tiny butterflies from the top and it just finished it off perfectly..Thank you for popping by :)xx

World Wide Open Design Team Challenge

Hiya..I am really excited this is my first DT card for WWOPTC..Was amazed that I was asked to join but I am in there ..and the bonus is I get to colour Julia Spiri stamps once its really a very nice surprise for me ,and I kept it secret for a while too lol!..I have been lucky enough to colour Hydrangea..I have used Polychromos Pencils onro Neena card..The background has been done in pencils on this one as I wanted it more vibrant rather than soft..I mounted her onto,purple,lilac then purple to give it a nice frame and used the purple as the matting card for the background papers..The papers I have used are from First Editions Love Letters,and I chose these for the accents of the colours I used in the main pictures,hence giving a contrast and making the image pop more..The flowers to the one side are Joy craft  Hydrangeas..These took ages to do as had to stick the individual bits of flower on the top and with fingers not working it was hard and I think the little buddy who watches me may be wearing a few lol !..These I cut from the off cuts from the purple card,so had little wast..I did have to colour the leaves green though  with a SN pen.. They do look much prettier in real than on the pics..
Thank You for visiting :) xx

613 Avenue Create. Using a Rubber Stamp

Hiya,This is a first for me ..I have used a stamp for the first time to make a card..I don't stamp as a rule as I have arthritis in my fingers and it make's it very difficult to stamp..,also the stamps are usually smaller which is harder for me to colour in so I tend not to use them ..
I coloured her in using Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card then coloured the background in with craft chalks that have fine glitter throughout..very pretty ,but not very subtle...The Backing paper is from a Tonic Pad called Simply Blooms and has been mounted onto craft card ,as was the image.I used...
I mounted the paper onto the craft card and before I added it to the card blank I added a pretty lace strip, pleated across the card using red double sided tape,then added two rows of cross grain pale purple ribbon across to hide the small amount of sticky tape left showing and to finish it off too..I then placed the topper with 3D Glue Gel ,and added a double bow ..To finish I added some pretty gems to the left of the card and a lovely old button with a large gem in the middle of it to the middle of the bow..Thank you for visiting :)xx

The image is a stamp from Whimsy Stamps it is 
The Messenger -CDC110
I have had it a couple of years so it may not be available now
 but you may find it on eBay or in a smaller craft shop

Sasayaki Glitter New challenge Purple

Hiya ,been a while since i last posted,yet another bad cold hit me..Had none for years and about three this year lol!..Todays challenge card is all done in purple..I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card and have squiggled a line around her to add a bit of interest and to frame her ,with a Pitt pen..I then mounted her onto some Purple linen type card ..The background papers are from my odds and ends box and Sorry I cannot remember who did them ,was grateful though as at the moment I think I am out of purples..I even had to do the band across the middle in two sections as I did not have enough of the paper to go across,so I added it to the matting card and covered the gap with the topper..See we do save bits for a reason ..So when he moans next time say "it is a very necessary lol! " after all they keep their junk all over the hous he !he ! he!..To finish I used three hydranga blossoms to the one side and some pretty faux violets to the center ..
