Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Reminder

Hiya .There is still time to enter the challenge on our blog ,here is my reminder card..I have coloured her in using Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card, and I coloured the sky with Chalk Pastels..I then glued it onto craft card as I have my other papers..I have used papers from a pad by DCWV called Floral Stack..Thank you to the nice lady on FB who knows its name as I cannot find the front cover and part of the stack,it  has a lot of pretty  papers in it   ..but a bit thin for my liking... The flowers are cut from dies from China,For the flowers I used some pretty Lilli of the Valley Paper that was free in a magazine ages ago,found this not the other piece of my paper pad lol! ,the leaves were just cut in white card and coloured with a SN pen..To finish I added some pretty faux pearls to the centers to add a little shimmer ..

World Wide Open Design Team Challenge DT Card

Hiya..This has been a really fun ,but time consuming card as the cutting out colouring and sticking was so none ending lol!..but I think worth it ..it has come out as a really fun card..I have coloured the image in using Polychromos Pencils on Neenah paper..I cut the image out using a Tonic Die..I am sorry I cannot remember the name as it is stored on a magnetic sheet and I have had it a long time,But it consists of a larger center die,the outer die and a cut out the edge die ..I used the two latter ones..I think it was something brambles perhaps..Any way I backed it with green card to make it stand out and used the same green card for the layering of the papers too.The papers are from First Editions Love Letters and I felt complemented the image perfectly and added a little sparkle too with the encapsulated glitter.The Mushrooms at the front I believe are Joy Crafts..The two taller ones at the back are from Marianne designs and the foxgloves are Tattered Lace die,The leaves are from china ..all hand coloured using SN pens All these were glued on using 3d glue gel to get a little depth ..
Thank you for visiting  :) xx

Sasayaki Glitter ..New Release Day

Hiya..This is a super cute image and its also this months Freebie..I coloured her in on Neenah with my Polychromos pencils and used pastel chalks for the background.The backing papers are some I brought from Liddle a few years back and sadly the last two of this set..They are encapsulated with glitter and are just beautiful..I cut the topper out with Tattered Lace Basic circles and cut an orange frame using some Topsy Turvey card from C&C  ..I also used it to layer the background paper on too ,this was raised by using 3D glue gel and placed around the image.using the same TL dies.The Paper was so pretty and worked perfectly with this image so all I did was cut out some of the shells and added them to the frame so it looks like the paper is coming up and over the frame..Simple but anything else I think would have spoilt it ..

Sketch Saturday with Bugaboo Stamp

I have loved making this card ,I just love Bugaboo stamps,they are so nice to colour and they look stunning when they are finished...I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card and then mounted her onto craft card..I have kept the background just backing paper which is unusual for me ,but I really think it set's the image off beautifully..The paper I used was from g.c.d Studios and is called CLOISONNE' .. For the flowers I have used a couple of cheap punches from Hobbycraft but there is nothing cheap looking about the pretty daisy like flowers I have created from them ,or the pretty leaves that are punched and embossed at the same time..To finish I added some multi faceted pink gems to the center of the daisies for that added bit of sparkle.
Thank you for popping by :) xx

Morgans Artworld May Release

This  is my last card for Morgans Artworld ,,I have loved being on the team but I feel it is time to move on now ..For this lovely image ,I coloured her with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card ,then used pastel chalks for the background..The papers I chose are from g.c.d studios and is the Melody Ross designer collection ..I chose the yellow mock flock for the base paper and a pretty ditsy one I cut into four pieces ,all my matting has been done onto craft card.I used dies from China to cut the flowers and they are a little like Sunflowers,but rather than an orange I decided to pick the purple out of the paper to give a complete contrast and I hand coloured them with SN water colour pens as the give a bit of a wishy washy effect as you get on flowers,The leaves are also hand coloured from a die from ChinaTo finish I added some pretty gems to the opposite side to the flowers to balance the card

Sasayaki Glitter May Challenge Card

Hiya..I coloured this little image in with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card.Once done I added a light background by drawing faint lines of bamboo and lightly shading them with green..I then finished off with pink and green pastel chalks ,I did not want the background to leap out as the image was the main feature ,but as soon as I say her I just knew she needed some bamboo lol!..I mounted her onto some pink Kanban card and put to one side until I finished the background card..
For the chard I used a cream blank ,I used the same pink card for matting my layers as the image..The Papers are from First Edition Love Letters .The back one being encapsulated with glitter and the other having tiny dots on it too..very pretty..Once the layers were all glued down I them mounted the topper on with 3D glue Gel ..The flower was cut from a die set from China and I chose it as it is the closest to a chrysanthium I could find as they are featured a lot in Chinese artwork..This and the leaves were coloured with SN pens so that it matched perfectly with the colour theme..I added them with the same glue I find flowers sit nicer with the 3D glue as it gives the gap between the layers as real flowers have and it makes them a little more natural,,I added the folded and shaped leaves and to finish I Popped a large pretty green gem in the center of the flower and a few on the side of the topper.

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

 I have just brought a lovely personalised rubber stamp for the 
back of my cards and you can find the link for this ladies

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...

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

New Release at Sasayaki Glitter

Hi..This was a super fun card to create..I coloured the boy and dog in with Polychromos Pencils,then the background with pastel chalks..Then drew around the edge of the image and coloured it in leaving little white circles or part circles..this made a fab frame around the image and made it really fun too..The star was created using a Dutch Doobadoo template I used papers from First editions Nerolli and matted them onto black..I was going to just pop the star on ,then decided it needed a bit of green so I cut a piece of Kanban's Adorable Scoreable that starts from one side one colour then goes to another..Beautiful card stock love it ,so glad I got it now ..I did not emboss it on this occasion though as there was too much going on and I think it was the right decision too.. I layer that with black card too and when it came to the topper I added some of the green that was an off cut and then matted it onto the black so it all blended together..To finish I added some pretty sparkle star gems..Thank you for coming by :)xx
