Fairy Time

Its challenge time again over at Polkadoodles. This week I opted to use the gorgeous Sugarplum Daisy CD Rom. I printed off a few digis to make up my picture and coloured them in with my Graph it markers. The backing paper and cute tickets also come from the same CD. I inked up a doily to add a lacy edge, a leafy die cut & a flower from my crafty stash completes this bold design.

 Many thanks for popping by. Why not join in with this weeks challenge.

Hi everyone, I thought I'd pop in and share what I've been up to over the last few days. As most of you know I'm on the Polkadoodles DT well the very talented Nikky Hall has a fab new digi set available for download on her website its approaching the spookiest night of the year..................So time for some fun!

I've made a card and covered a box ready for those pesky trick or treaters

My very clever son is also worth a mention here as he received his A level results last week and got a 'B' in Photography so I asked him to take a couple of pics for me to upload to my blog.

The box shows off one of the wonderful backing papers available in the download bundle and the lid, I coloured in a digi bat and used a die to cut out the inked sentiment.

The card was where I really had fun. I started by printing off one of the lush downloadable backing papers I added a couple of sticky cobwebs to the corners before printing, which I later embossed to add a bit of texture & sparkle. I inked the edges and matted and layered onto some contrasting card stock which I roughed up a little with my scissors and an emery board. Then added that to my inked A5 card blank. I love colouring and used a combination of Graph It Markers and Spectrum Noir's to colour my two digi stamps. I took the 'Spooky' sentiment into my Silhouette Cameo to cut out and off set it with a contrasting colour.

I'd like to enter this in the Graph'it Red Hair Challenge

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas is Coming

I thought I'd best make a start on my Christmas cards 4 clean & simple A6 cards using the new a4 embossalicious snowflake folder, sprayed with spray & sparkle matted onto some mirror board. The snowflake dies are tattered lace by Stephanie Weightman. All finished off with a typed sentiment which I used with a double sided sheet, cut with labels 4 spellbinder die and dipped in micro beads for a bit of texture. 

Thanks for stopping by!
