Gardening

I wanted to make a flowerpot shaped cardbase for this gardening image, but it turned out more challenging than I'd expected!  This is what I've come up with and I've decorated it with some die cut flowers to match the gardening theme.  It's my DT card for the As You Like It Challenge where the theme is to showcase your favourite colouring medium.  I've tried H2O's, Promarkers, Pencils, Copics, Zigs and Docraft Artiste pens in the past but always come back to watercolouring with my DI reinkers like a comfy pair of slippers!  I really should try harder with the other mediums, but I actually find the watercolouring quite therapeutic and I like the way they blend and shade.

  • Sky: Tumbled Glass

Father's Day Puppy

This week at PolkadoodlesDigi Choosday I've made a Father's Day card featuring Horace the puppy and some papers from Lily Bug Love Paper Heaven 3.  I've left the design fairly simple as it's a masculine theme and watercoloured it with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers.

Baby Giraffe

We're asking you to share your favourite way to add ribbon to your projects this week at As You Like It Challenge, and I love to use ribbons so this is a fabulous challenge for me!  I like using 2 papers on my cards and use a strip of satin ribbon to cover the join, as well as add a double bow in the same ribbon.  The double bows are really easy to make once you get the hang of them, and I think they look really special.

  • Giraffe: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs 
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Present: Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans
  • Reds: Candied Apple, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany
  • Ground: Pumice Stone, Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
