Morgansartworld Saturday Inspiration Card

Hiya..I have coloured this beautiful image today with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah Card.. I then cut a Frame in White Centura Pearl and put it over the image to made it look as though it is 3d by using Collall 3D glue gel..I used a Crafter's Companion Rose design folder onto some pink Centura pearl card ,cut it to size and mounted onto some white Centura Pearl left over from the circle frame then stuck the topper on the top of this.I then used a Tonic pearlin a bottle glitter drop thing ,sorry my first time and they are a bit uneven but still it gives a bit of texture.I then used paper from CC An English Country Garden Paper pad ,These papers are really thick and feel beautiful.I mounted this onto Pink Centura Pearl..Once I added the panel onto the background I then cut some of Tonic Magnolia Flora Dies in White Centura Pearl and in Purple Centura Pearl,this brings out the purple of the older fairies dress,I then added these once shaped with 3D glue gel I tend to use this both in creating in between the petals and also to glue them down with because I find it gives the flowers a more natural look ,Ok not so much these ones but mostly on more natural looking flowers..To finish I then added multi faux pearls in a pink to the centers of the flowers and some others to the card ..Thank you for popping by :) xx

Knitty Kitty DT Card.. New Release

Hiya..Today's card ids another first for me today..I have coloured this lovely image in with my new set of Conte a Paris Pastel Pencils..I brought these for doing my backgrounds on my work ,but got carried away once I started and just carried on with them..I used Neenah card and was not sure if it would be ok,but it was fine..They blended fabulous using just a stumpy..I used pastels at school and I remember how dirty a job it was ,but now with pencils and stumpy it is so clean..One thing though ,you do need to work from the top and slowly work your way down to prevent any smudging and a piece of paper is handy if you need to go over anything too ..All in all , a fun project, and I think I will do again but try different papers ,so if you fancy trying pastels have a go its great fun..Don't forget you have to fix the Pastels ..I used the old trick of using Hairspray. .
For the background Papers I used Tonic Studios Woodland Walk,These were backed onto black card as was the completed topper.For the decoration I have cut some of the smaller Spellbinder Labels 48  dies out i gold and placed them as shown on the card ..and on one of the larger of the two I cut it in white and wrote Fore!! You on it and did my wriggle thing around it to decorate..Thank you for popping by :) xx

Digital Delights by Louby Lou

Hiya ,This was a lovely project to do I coloured the pretty image with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..I then fussy cut it out and popped to one side..Then I created the card using one of the Duch Doo Ba Doo stencil shapes..and cut it out getting smaller and smaller first with outside deep blue/turquoise card,then white ,Tonic papers from Simply Blossoms for the final two,then around the yellow dotted paper I added faux stitching and a branch to which I added the two pretty die cut birdcages cut from the Kimono range at Crafter's Companion..I added the pretty image with 3D gell glue and punched out a lot of medium sized x-cut punched flowers..I sprinkled these along the branch and on the floor and popped some tiny gems into the centers of them..Its very time consuming doing a project like this as the card had to be hand cut ,but it does give you an awful lot of satisfaction when its finished lol!..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Sasayaki Glitter Kid with Kite

This has been a real labour of love as it is such a sweet image..The image comes from the store with just the bou in the cart with the kite..The background is my own work.. I have coloured him in with Polychromos pencils onto Neenah card ,He was then cut to size and mounted onto black card..The background papers are from First Edition Up,Up and away and go so nicely with this card ,being cute but not pretty ,just perfect for a little fella. All these were also mounted onto black card too..I added the topper with 3D gel glue to give a bit of depth and kept the decoration simple as it was for a boys card with some pretty gems I got from Ebay ..these remind me of the Spangle sweets that you could buy when I was a kid.. Yep I am older than 21 lol!..All the dots and squiggles were added with a black medium Pitt pen..as with many of my cards there is a space left for a sentiment and the child's name or age too ..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Faery Ink Wedding

Hiya ,todays card is made from a beautiful image from Faery Ink..I have coloured her using Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..I then drew the heart using a slightly smaller die than the one I used to cut the gold backing for the image..This was then fussy cut out so it over flowed the edges and tipped into the card..I then 3D gel glued it on top of the gold mat heart and left to dry..The Papers I have used are from Crafter's Companion Signature range The English Country Colection,perfect for vintage and or wedding cards ..These were matted onto Gold Mirri on the front and onto Centura Pearl on the Heart and the Tattered lace Panel and other heart which is not clearly visable (I did not really like it once I had glued it down ,so quick design change lol!) ,just popping out from under the flowers,but it adds a different tone to the gold Mirri...The flowers are Tonic Woodland Asters..To finish the card I added pretty pink resin pink roses to the center of the flowers,this helps bringing the pink from the bouquet and the flowers on the paper all together and also add an elegant touch..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Saturday Inspiration Morgans Artworld

This Saturdays image is once more coloured with my Polychromos pencilsonto Neenah cardI then drew around a die to get the heart into the position I wanted and also to have the little bits popping over the edge too.I then did the same with some beautiful Mink coloured Centura pearl card ..I then fussy cut both out ,because of the early morning hours and I have somehow misplaced my smaller die machine ( Cuttlebug ) plate,I had to do it this was as the Ebosser sounds like a train running through the flat at four in the morning ,just because I am up ,others sleep lol! ..Once done they were glued together with 3D gel glue ,putting to one side as I created the card to dry..
The papers are from Crafter's Companion an English Country Garden Paper Pad,the best part of this card is I have used a lot of odds and ends like bits cut off the last card I made Papers,last bit of Hessian and lace and last of that size gems ,so it cleared some stash too..Just got tons more to go lol!..The papers are also mounted onto the same Centura Pearl ..But I had to initially use red tape to put the Hessian down and the lace ,then glued with 3D glue gel onto the card to make sure it all stuck down firmly and not pop off...To finish I added a pretty satin ribbon and added a Love from the CC Signature range from the die which has I Love You in the set..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Sasayaki Glitter CAS Card

Hiya ,Todays card I have done several things completely different..Firstly it is a Clean and Simple card CAS ,and secondly this is the first time I have tried Watercolour Pencils to colour the image..I used Caran D'Ache Prismalo 2 watercolour Pencils onto Neenah card..Not really advisable as if you get it too wet it baubles ,but I used a water brush and kitchen towel to keep it quite dry.I love the effect but I do know I need practice with these but also use a different card that will take the water much better.I did however touch her face up very slightly around the edges with my regular Polychromos,not a lot ,but it did not have the umph I wanted..But I do think that the Watercolour pencils are a good addition to your craft kit..I did not do a background however due to the type of paper I used ,,I knew it would not take it.
 The image was cut out using a Tattered Lace basic Pinpoint scalloped circle die.I then cut a frame in Pink Centura Pearl to frame the image ,this complimented the pink I used in the dress and accessories throughout the image..The card itself I ran through the Ebosser with a Crafter's Companion Embossing folder with pretty buterflies on it ,this was to put texture into what would be a blank boring card..and gives it a bit of interest ..I went arounD the edge of this with the same colour pencil I have used in the topper ,this helps to knit it all together.Finally I added the frame to the image and used 3D glue Gell to add to the card..I created a label on the pc and cut the end into a fish tail mounted it onto the same pink card used for the frame ,bent it slightly and added with the 3D glue.
It is hard doing a card like this when your used to doing pretty layered card..I have a lot of respect for those who do this on a regular basis ..Thank You for popping by :)xx

Digital Delights by Louby Lou.. Diving Peggy legz

Hiya ,today's card for Digital Delights by Louby Lou is Diving Peggy Legz, Such a fun little girl suitable for any up and coming Olympian Super star.. I printed her onto Neenah card and coloured her with Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils.. these are my favourites as I find I can get such beautiful results from them and I can do things with pencils that pens cannot do .. I used black card for matting on the image and also for the backing papers too..These were from my G.C.D studio Melody Ross Designer Paper pad...Before I placed the topper onto the card with 3D glue gel I did a squiggle line around the image it seemed to tie it in with the theme a little more and match with the waves I popped into the water . I then placed it into position added some pre-made shop brought flowers that brought all the colours from the image out into the card ,then to finished the matching tag was added ..Thank you for visiting :)xx

My Besties UK ..Anythig goes with option of Summer

Hiya..Todays card is a real sweet one ,this looks so unlike the normal Bestie images,but I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her ,so here she is for the Summer themed challenge..I have coloured her in using Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..I then cut the image out using the Tattered Lace torn rdge oval which I then mounted onto black card and fussy cut around it ,due to the fact I had to use the largest die to cut the image out ,but it works lovely.The background papers are all mounted onto black card also..The main one is from a digital kit I have as I did not have any orange paper and I could change the colour..The other two papers are off cuts from my scrap box,they were just big enough and the colours fit with the card beautifully. The flowers are from Crafter's Companion Signature collection from the English Country Garden Range..Just the right amount of decoration,these I cut from card and I hand coloured with SN pens then went over them with the SN Sparkle pens to make them pretty,it does not show on the pics ,sorry,..I then once dried shaped them..Glued the topper in place with 3D gel glue and added the flowers with the same glue ,this helped where the difference in the layers in the backgrounds are and made them grip better..Thank you for visiting :)xx

The flowers I used are from Memory box dies and are called Lovely Asters ,these I have shaped and layered,popped pretty gems in the center ,then punched some leaves to go with it ..As it was five in the morning I just did not want to cut the leaves so punches some,much quicker..To finish I also added a few of the same gems to the opposite side to balance the card too..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Gust Designer for My Besties Aussie

Hiya,Not only my Guest Designer card ,but first Christmas one for this year ..well its a start lol!.. I have coloured the pretty Christmas Mouse image with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..I chalked the background to add a softness I cannot achieve with the pencils.The snowline and snowballs etc are all my own artwork and you will only get the image when you purchase her..I also did a wavy edge around the die cut edge to frame it too,The dies used to cut it out were the latest Tattered Lace Notched Squares, this was backed onto another die cut but this time in Silver card,this frames the whole image and allows it to pop..
As the image was so large I only used one backing sheet ,this is from First Editions Festive Treats,this was also backed onto Silver card too..The flowers are cut from the Tattered Lace Trio Poinsettia Dies using Centura Pearl card and I have hand coloured them with SN pens to go with the colours in the topper ,I added some Silver ivy leaves cut from a CC Diesire Ivy Die ,in this case the smaller one ..And to finish I added some pretty white iridescent gems to the flower centers and down the one edge too for decoration..Thank you for popping by :)xx
