More New Images, and a FREEBIE

Hiya folks!

Phew, glad I got back from my walkies in one piece - BOY it's blowing a HOOLIE out there today!! Apparently we had 90mph winds last night - they certainly kept waking me up!

Anyway, I have some more new releases for you today in the

First up, a lovely romantic image -



And next, a pretty 'Swirly Heart':


I also have more new things coming out on the 1st February - just in time for your Valentine's Day makes (hopefully!)
There will be a couple of Frames, a set of Corners and a Paper collection too!

Here are the Preview images -






And to show off some of them, I have created this sample -


 As you can see, I have used the Gothic Bride & Groom from today's new release. This was coloured with my usual watercolour pencils before scanning and printing off for layering. I also layered the heart shape from the corner image (part of the set of four corners).

Here is a closer view:


The 'Swirly Heart Corner' was layered directly onto my design before printing off.
The paper is a FREEBIE posted below which I made into a tint as well as printing off a full colour version for the bottom of the card.
The strip across the centre of the card is just a piece of embossed black cardstock smudged with metallic rub-on stuff.


Ooops, just noticed I covered the bottom leaf of the corner image with my embossed card. DOH! lol

The strip of dp going top to bottom is part of the paper collection coming out on the 1st too. It will be the same design, but in TEN colourways. I have used the 'gold' version here.

And lastly I popped some brads in the bottom corner and a hand-tied bow in the top corner to balance things out a bit.


OK folks, now for the FREEBIE -
 please be aware that this is a large image and may take a few minutes to download.
Right click and save to your compy!:


Enjoy folks - and don't forget to come along and show off your Delicious Doodles makes in our very own FACEBOOK GROUP

OK, now to find me some challenges to enter then - ttfn!!

New Rubber!!!

Hiya folks - me again!!

Twice in one day huh, whatever next!?! lol

Just a wee bit of news for lovers of RUBBER -
I have my latest FOUR images coming out soon at


They are on Pre-Order NOW at a discount price too - so hurry on over and get yours quick!!

xxxx


Oh So Goth!!

Hiya folks!!

I'm here today with ANOTHER make!! Yes indeedy! Two in one week, can't be bad, lol

Well, I just HAD to do this one, as I sooooo love Gothic style stuff, and I HAVE just released a load of Gothic inspired frame/corner/paper/images into the Delicious Doodles Shop!!!

You may have noticed my Gothic Fairy -



Isn't she just gorgeous?? Well, I love her anyway, but then, I would say that wouldn't I?? lol
 I have now added:-









All of the above form part of my new Gothic Collection!

There will be more items added to it, as and when I get round to doing them! But for the moment these are it!
AND I actually made a sample card using most of them, here it is:


I made a twisted easel card using some gold cardstock for the base shape, and some of the Rose+Thistle Papers for my dp's. Behind the image is the Rose+Thistle Frame.


 There is a lovely black lacey trim behind the frame/image, and I cut a couple of corners using my spellbinders fleur-de-lys die set.
Below is a piccie of the base, where I added some punched flowers/leaves.


Here is a close-up view of the Gothic Fairy image. She was coloured with my usual watercolour pencils, scanned and printed multiple times for the layers.


And here is a close-up view of the hand-tied bow I made, along with the big dangly charm I also made. This was done using remnants of jewellery bits and a few beads I had lying about. The ribbon I used here has been recycled from Xmas, as it was originally used to tie some PJ's together!


Phew - you still with me?? lol

That took me TWO days to make, in between other stuff mind you.
Now I shall probably be another fortnight making the next thing! lol. Seems to take forever to make anything these days, what with my designing, and 'proper paid job'. Makes take a bit of a sideline! (sigh)

Ack, well. Off to find some challenges to enter.
TTFN folks!

Famous Last Words

Hiya folks!

Ha-ha-ha! I see some of our poor southern folk are suffering with a wee smidgeon of the white stuff - for a change we don't have much here where I am. OH and guess what - the whole country has ground to a halt as usual. Hee-hee-hee.

Well, I think you peeps down there had better get your butts into gear, 'cause with this global climate change thingy you will be seeing more and more of it.
My kids are wishing it would bucket down up here so the schools can close like everyone elses. Poor babies, NOT !! lol

Seriously though folks, do take care if you need to go out. It's a blumming cold wind, believe me. Just been out with the dog, and I'm glad I put my new thermals on!!

Anyway, on to my make - YES I have made something!! wooo-hooo!!




Well, I'm sorry peeps, but I'm awful at remembering words from films, and I don't do poems, and my books all have naff last lines. So I went on an internet trawl. Can you believe some people have the time to put things like this up on the net? Believe me they do, 'cause I found LOADS!! lol

Of course, when you see them in black and white they all come flooding back - like this fabulous Last Line from 'Silence of the Lambs' as uttered by the excellent Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter:


"I do wish we could chat longer, but I'm having an old friend for dinner. . ."

Brilliant! lol

I kept everything very simple for this make. Just one dp on some (christmassy!) shimmery green cardstock. The image is my Halloweenie Zombie, 
available from my Delicious Doodles Shop.

Coloured with my usual watercolour pencils, and printed out twice to layer up. The green circular bits are the same cardstock punched out and rounded off using the butt end of a pen. Kinda like those card candy things I see about, but have never bought any of. Yeah, they are a bit creased, but it was thick card!

Righty then folks, off to do some more 'stuff', take care everyone!

OMFG!! A card at last!!!

Well hellloooo there peeps!!

I can't believe it has been so long since I made anything for blogger here, almost a month!!!  I almost forgot where some of my stuff was!! lol.

'And what is this special occasion that warrants new makes then?' I hear you ask?? Mwuahahahhaaaa! Today sees the return of all things Macabre, Horrific, Gross, Pagan and Gothic over at Haunted Design House - YES - Macabre Monday is BACK!!!

We are going fortnightly now so you have even more time to submit your nasties! lol

Our theme for these two weeks is nice and easy to get you in the mood -
Freaker's Free for All

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Hallowe'en based art piece
with no other limitations. 
Anything goes!!!!

Like I said - nice and easy huh??


 I decided to ease you all in gently and went for a Pagan look to my make, using my newest image 'The Ivy Queen', along with 'Ivy Corner' which was dropped onto the digital dp before printing.


The image was coloured in with my watercolour pencils before scanning into the compy, printing out, fussy-cutting and layering up with foam pads.

I added some lovely black lacy trim that I got from Ebay a few months ago and hadn't used yet. Some stickles was added round the edges here and there, along with some gems in the corners and on the die-cut butterfly.


Above is a close-up of the image.

So there you have it then folks, my first make of 2013.

Psoriasis

Hiya folks!

Happy 2013 to ya!!  Hope it's a good one for all.

Now, do any of you suffer, like me, with Psoriasis??

Well, enough is enough, and this year I want to get my butt into gear and get it sorted!!
So, I decided the other day to set up a blog to document it all.


Feel free to follow my exploits if you wish, or not, choice is yours folks.
But be warned - it is a 'no holes barred' kinda blog, warts and all,
so if you are at all squeamish then don't go there!!
