About Me

My Photo
Devon, United Kingdom
My 2015 resolution is to use some of my unused crafting stash before buying any more (hmm, it's probably best if you don't ask me how long that good intention lasted, but I blame my crafting friends for having a bad influence over me!). I love your feedback on my creations and I read every message, so please leave a comment to let me know you've visited.

Bubbles

Today's card is a fairly quick one.  Well, it was quick to put together, but painting the image usually takes at least an hour, much longer than using my Copics, but I love the relaxation 'therapy' of the water-colouring.

I've created a shaped case card using a large Go Kreate die, embossed the backing paper and inked around the edges for some definition.

Although it's quite a simple card, I added some bright red embellishments against the white background, and sneaked in a couple of blue accents to bring out the bubbles which I highlighted in glossy accents for some bubble-shine!

Get your skates on

It's another Fabby Friday at Tiddly Inks and I've got another Wryn to share.  This one is back in my comfort zone as she's pretty in pink and I've splattergunned some flowers around the image panel.

The papers are Winter Wonderland from Me To You and I've used some pink ribbon with 'Wonderland' embroidered on it.  It was actually recycled from a box of chocolates I received at Christmas, and the full text said 'cocoa wonderland' but I trimmed off the 'cocoa' part!

Obviously I also had to safely 'dispose' of the chocolates.  What hardships I suffer for my craft!

Bunny Bag

I love little gift bags and boxes, and I've made this roll-bag from ShapeEZ a few times now. It's really easy to make and stick together.

This gift baggie was made to support the Sugar Bowl Anything Goes Challenge and also the As You Like It Challenge where we're making anything but a card.

Strawberry Bunny

I've been painting again and this little cutie is one of the new images from Scrapberrys which I got from Funky Kits.  It's not quite CAS, but not quite fussy either, so I'm not really sure which camp this one falls into, but I enjoyed painting her nonetheless.

Heffalumps

This card looked very different in my head before I started.

I'm not sure what happened.

Or perhaps what didn't happen.

But this is how it turned out.

Pixie Dust Cloud

Today's card is a lesson in reminding me to choose my papers before I start colouring my image. Instead I sailed straight into the colouring and only when I'd finished did I wonder what papers I might be able to use!

After going through all my paper pads, I eventually settled on one which seemed to match the colours and, although it is quite a 'busy' paper, it didn't seem to be too attention grabbing which might detract from the image.

The fairy dust clouds are actually much more glittery than they look in the photo as I smothered them in Wink of Stella and they really do sparkle.

I trimmed the base of the rather large image panel with my new stitched hillside border die and added two shades of sheer organza ribbon, tied in a bow and topped off with a small button, and a trio of pearls.

I hope you like it:

Take Two

I've been trying to play with some images that I've had for a while, and seemed to be in a festive mood as both samples I'm sharing today are Christmassy.  The first is a card featuring  Birch Winter Bunny from Purple Onion Designs, and the second is a tag featuring the adorably cute Walter Skating Penguin.

I painted both with my DI reinkers and picked papers to match.  They both follow the same sketch. I hope you like them.

Surprise - It's another CAS creation

I'm on a bit of a roll with the CAS style creations at the moment.  I think I edge towards them when I'm happier with my painting as I don't mind having the focus on the image!

I've cut the curvy edge by hand again, which was fine until I decided to matt the pale pink onto a very dark contrasting brown coloured card where any deviation from the curve shows!

Just don't look too closely ...

Just a little note ...

I wanted to make a simple sweet card for a lovely friend who's had a rough time of things lately, but I didn't want to add a lot of frilly fuss because she's a CAS kind of gal.  I also know she dislikes pink, but likes bunnies, and since I love these two LOTV characters this is what I came up with:

There ain't mushroom to sit on here

I'm back with a quickie post, and another CAS card.  The image is Midsummer Night from LOTV painted with my reinkers.

I used a leftover scrap from my beloved Papermania Lucy Cromwell pad (sadly it's nearly all gone now and the shop I bought it from has closed).

I cut the curve by hand to give it some shape and layered it onto plain card.  Otherwise, all I added was a smidgeon of twine.

And not a pearl in sight!
