Saturday Sketch Card.. Lemon Shortbread

This lovely image from Lemon Shortbread,I have coloured her using Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card,then used Pastel chalks for a nice soft background..Please note.. the small butterfly is not part of the image,I added that as somehow I had got a couple of marks on the paper and I used the butterfly and the trail to cover them up...The papers I used are from First Edition Floral Pavilion and are mounted onto Centura Pearl in a pretty blue colour. I cut the image out with a Tattered Lace basic circle die then cut the next size up with the next size die but in Blue Centura..I glued the topper to this and added to the card using 3D glue gel.The Fancy swirls are from Crafter's Companion..The Butterfly Lullaby set and is called Fancy Flourishes ....also cut in blue Centura..to disguise where the join between the two swirls is I added the pretty Faux shop brought blooms.. I chose the simple dotty paper as I wanted the image to be the main feature on this card.

Caterpillar Lady

Hiya ..I have been working on this for ages..You won't find this digi any where it is all my own work..I have done this expecially for my Sons friend.This is inspired from Alice in Wonderland ,the caterpillar on the Mushroom..My Son loves this book and wants the theme for his wedding invites ,so should be very different .It has taken in excess of 20 hrs from the beginning to the end ,and really at the end of the day it is why I really wanted to learn to colour,as I was actually only drawing in graphite pencils before and dabbles in Water colours..but I lost all inspiration when I lost my Mum many years ago ..but have done the odd thing in between for others or myself occasionally in the last few years..
First I scanned the origional and turned it into a digital stamp as it was a lot larger ,then I have coloured her onto Neenah card using both Polychromos and Prisma Pencils..I then mounted her onto white,then Purple..The papers I have used are Santorio Mirabelle and are very glitter encapsulated as I have tried to show in the pictures..It gives the effect of a garden across the bottom of the card.I also used some lighter heart paper from the same pad to bring a break into the green ..The dies I have used for the flowers under and on the edge of the image are Tattered Lace  Mini Cherry Blossom which I cut in pink card and coloured the branches with a SN pen.All the papers are mounted onto Purple Centura Pearl..There are so many colours in the image that I tried to bring them into the out side of the image in the mat card and the flowers too..The colours you see are vibrant,but the real card is even more vibrant..I hope iI have shown it to its best ..
Thank you for taking the time to visit :)xx

Sasayaki Glitter Challenge reminder Card

Hiya for today's card I have coloured the image in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card,I then used Pastel chalks on the background taking care to set them with hair spray to prevent them from shedding..I then used a Tattered Lace basic torn circle die to cut the image out and used a scalloped circle to back the picture ,If I remember I believe it was one of my Tonic Dies.The other Die I used for down the side is a Xcut one I believe is called a floral Panel..I backed this with the same hot pink card as the circle and fussy cut around it,leaving a small overlap..I then used First Editions Floral Pavilion Papers which were also mounted on the same hot pink card too..And to finish the card I added some pretty small pearlised pink flowers to the center of the flowers on the floral panel...
Thank you for taking time to pop by :)xx

Sasayaki Glitter Yellow Challange Card

Hiya..For todays card I have had to go to the very bottom of the odd paper box..Yellow is a very hard colour to find , but I found some phew and a few pieces for off cuts too so sorry I do not know the names of the papers this time..The card I used to back it onto was Hunkydory..It is lush ,starts one end with one colour going onto another tint..so you will be seeing it a lot in the future lol!..The image was coloured onto Neenah card , with Polychromos Pencils..and cut it out with a Tonic Essentials Swirling Frame Layering Die..I backed it with the same yellow card I used to back the papers..After layering the card up I added the topper with 3D glue gel ,then cut a couple of the lovely tulips from the new Tattered Lace Blissful Blooms. but rather than use the cd to colour them I used SN Water Colour Pens,These were also added using 3D glue gel once shaped and this gave them more shape and definition..To finish I added some very tiny sparkling cristals here and there and a sentiment ..
Thank you for visiting :)xx
