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.
