Grab a coffee/tea and some biccies ladies, this might be a long post! Hope you are all well today? I have been reading that so many of you are under the weather, I do hope things pick up for you soon.
Well, I have been busy in the crafty cavern (my dining room! LOL) creating some cards to show off a couple of new images. These were released yesterday over in my shop, 'Gladioli' and 'Red Cardinal':
First up I'll show you the card I made with the Gladioli image, as this is the DT card I have made for The Sisterhood's new theme. This week it is 'Birthdays', so nice and easy for you all! LOL Hope to see you there ladies!
I followed the sketch from Truly Scrumptious for this card, but I didn't use the blue and green colour combo they had as an optional extra. I went for a yummy pink and green number instead. Here is the sketch, I kind of flipped mine to put the sentiment at the bottom:
I am also entering it in the challenge at Stamp Something, as their theme is 'Digi' this week, SCSC where they have an 'Open' theme, and also at Totally Papercrafts where the theme is Birthdays.
I have used papers from Tinker & Co's Shabby Milly kit (digital). Everything else is from the stash. The Gladioli image is coloured with the usual watercolour pencils, scanned to the compy and printed out for layering.
Next up is my entry for the Midnight Madness challenge, where each week they have a choice of sketches for you to follow. I usually try to follow the fancy one:
This time I made another easel card using papers from Tinker & Co (frame) and an Artylicious cd. I have used my new Red Cardinal image for this one, and made it a Christmas card. This was coloured as usual with the watercolour pencils, scanned and printed for layering. I have popped some stickles over it here and there too, for an added something.
The flowers are all made with my punches, with added stickled dots. The ribbon trim is from Papermania, got it last year and never used it!! (me bad) This ties in with the challenge at Corrosive Challenges (use up your stash).
I am also entering this into the challenges at Pixie Dust Studio (Fur or Feather),and at Cute Card Thursday (Bird or Butterfly)
So, hope the coffe/tea didn't go cold, LOL. I'd better go and do some work now then. So many things floating round in my head at the moment, think it's gonna burst sometimes!! Have a great day folks!
