Precious Petals….

Hi There

Its challenge time at  Petal Lu challenges  and the theme this fortnight is

Anything Goes …. Now I am a little busy getting another project off the ground – more about that in a couple of days but I have been challenged for time so at the weekend I decided to spend a day just colouring – I managed to colour eight images! Well pleased with myself!   Out of all the images I coloured this one stood out for me the most.  It is such a beautiful image (Mo Manning of course! and can be found at http://www.mosdigitalpencil.com/ amongst lots of other totally amazing images). I added some beautiful green centred Petal Lu daisies which I just fell in love with as soon as I saw them! You can choose your favourite flowers from Petal Lu but following the links here:

I told you I would come back soon….

Hahaha! I told you I would be back soon – my crafting energy is better than it has been for a while so i have been colouring quite a bit.  That means I have quite a lot of images ready to turn into projects.

I am saving a couple for the DT but here is something I made for one of my close friends for her 29th (ahem!!!) birthday – the image is a Mo Manning one called Penelope’s Party Wagon – it has fast become a favourite!!!

I have used a soft spotty paper  as I felt that this complemented the red of Penelope’s hair, the image was coloured with copics which I fell out of love with for a teensy weensy little while but are back on my crafty agenda!

Until next time – remember to stamp your place in the world!

PS – the party was amazing and my knees and feet were still singing by Sunday night!

 

 

 

 

 

Petal Lu – Flowering Loveliness

Hey there!!!

Its been a while….I know and it has been my fault …as always life got away from me and time passed but I have continued making cards and colouring…and I am a member of a new Design Team….

Petal Lu

I am delighted to be part of this team and have been using the fabulous loveliness that are Petal Lu flowers in my projects for some time. You can visit all the wonderful flowers here….

Did you spot the wonderful new watermark??? I am proud to say that my lovely friend Lisa made this for me….I hope you like it and the project.

I will begin to catch you up with my news over the next few weeks but until then remember to stamp your place in the world. xxxx

Love is in the Air…

Oh, yes, Love is definitely in the air and here is another post from me!!!  See how efficient I am? Well, no……………..not really. You know me too well!   This is me using the newly found ‘scheduler’…..so clever as I feel quite sure that when this goes out I will be happily sat in my bed enjoying a lovely cup of Sunday Morning tea!

Back to Love is in the Air – February is the time of love and I confess to not being the most romantic of people – something about being a little long in the tooth and all that although I am partial to the odd touch of romance……just a touch mind! So I always struggle with Valentines day, I get embarrassed with too much luuuurrrrvvvvvve!  But when I saw this image I knew it was the one I wanted to use and you see I couldnt resist a cheeky sentiment as well. Fortunately, MB knows how much he means to me and somewhat resembles the cute ted in this image.

The die cut frames are Spellbinders and together with the flowers, card stock and Copic pens I have used to colour the image, everything can be bought from That Craft Place! Yep – everything…(Link Here) The image I have used here is a Mo Manning one but did you know that Lisa Horton – owner of That Craft Place has now brought out a range of digi stamps herself? Why not check them out here at her Etsy online shop (Link Here) Ditzie Digi Designs and https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DitzieDigiDesign…) and choose yourself a unique and fabulous digi image for your next project!

Until next time – remember to stamp your place in the world! xxx

Things with Wings….

So I have been taking a couple of colouring classes with the lovely Clare Rowlands recently – she has been over at a paper place not too far from where I live. I cannot tell you how much it helps to have some show you how to colour properly…I have watched mountains of vids on youtube etc – havent we all? and they are good but the real thing is so much better. So now I am hooked on Copics….which is just as well since That Craft Place now stock them!!!

The challenge this time is “Things with Wings”……I immediately thought…Fairies….and it was very nearly a snow fairy but I thought I would avoid Christmas for a little bit longer, although I know it is on the way…here is my project….IMG_2874wtmk

She is a Mo Manning image, coloured with Copics. I threw in a little frantage, some hand rolled flowers, lots of Memory Box dies, some Joy Dies, some seam binding and a sprinkle of pearls….  here are some close ups….

 IMG_2877wtmk

Here is a closer picture of the frantage – this is Shabby White….IMG_2878wtmk

And a close up of those hand rolled flowers, it also shows a close up of the colouring – I have used a coloured pencil to add a little depth to the shadows int he folds othe dress here, and if you look closely at the wings you can see how fabulously the Copics pens blend together – here I have used a very soft aqua and a very soft lilac to give the wings some irridescence….

I do hope you like this project – I loved making it to share with you. If you would like to take part in this weeks challenge, head on over to That Craft Place where I know Lisa, Danny and Lynn will be happy to help you chose items for your project….and when you have finished why not share it with us and enter the That Craft Place Challenge over at http://thatcraftplaceblog.blogspot.co.uk/….we look forward to seeing your finished items…..

I am entering this project to

Colour Me Creative – ANY913

This is my first ‘That Craft Place’ design team project and I am so excited to have been chosen to be part of the design team. It is a daunting project with so many talented people around and so many different aspects to crafting to be having a go at but here goes …. and I truly hope you like it.  Whilst I have made this card specifically for the challenge – which is ANYTHING GOES by the way!!! – I had already spotted this image somewhere else and loved but thought I might have to wait until the winter months came back around to use it. One of my favourite things about crafting is the colouring in – I like lots of different media for this but my current favourite is marker pens…
