Tiddly Inks - Sloth Hugs

Here is my third and final entry into the Tiddly Inks 2:3 Challenge  and I had so much fun colouring this image. I have been wanting a long fur to colour for a while after seeing a tutorial by Annabel at Cartway Cards where she showed how to achieve this effect with Prismacolor pencils. And I have to say I am chuffed with how well he has turned out! The image is from Tiddly Inks called Sloth's life.

I used a Kraft card base and added a panel of Fauna paper from Doodlebug. I die cut the image panel with a My Favourite things scalloped stitched edge and tied some twine around the edge before using 3d foam to adhere it with some extra dimension. I coloured some little chipboard heart and the double Hugs word with promarkers. I also used some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen on the word to give it some extra shimmer.

So this will be entered into the Tiddy inks challenge - Look at this wicked prize!!

All for now - Good luck to everyone entering,

Girlie Winterlight Wynn

Hello - I'm back again today to share my second creation for the Tiddly Inks 2:3 Challenge. 
This one is for the second theme of Girlie Girl and what could be more girlie that pink, shimmer and gems. It is quite rare for me to do muted tones but I really love the natural and soft look of this using the filigree card base from Papermania. This image from Tiddly Inks is called Winterlight Wishes

I've included a closer picture so you can see the lovely shimmer on the polar bear which I got using a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen and a little stickles. The ribbon and wooden embellisment are for Hobby craft. The pink background paper is from Pink Fresh Oh Joy collection which I think is my favourite so for Christmas papers.

I coloured the image using promarkers - A little powder blue on the polar bear and Blossom and baby pink on Wynn's clothes. I used warm greys on her hair and the fox.

Just look at this amazing prize... how much fun I could have spending this!!! FINGERS CROSSED! 
All for now and Ill be back tomorrow with my last card for the 2:3 challenge.

Birthday Monsters

Today is the start of a new challenge at I love Promarkers and our theme is Birthdays -Easy right!! So no excuses not to get your entries in!! We are sponsored by Bugaboo and I've used this fab image called Birthday Monsters 


All the patterned papers are from Doodlebug Hip Hip Hooray collection.  The image was cut out with a Lawn fawn circle die which I trimed down to the stitched detail so I could mat it onto the orange die cut. I cut the tag by hand and punched a hole to feed the ribbon through which I tied with some twine. I used glaze and cosmic shimmer on the balloons and added some googly eyes to the monsters, The greeting is a clear sticker from Kaisercraft and the other letters are from Doodlebug. I used a little silver and white pen to add details and finally a few little stars scattered around.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image - 
Aquamarine, Oasis & Frosted Jade.
True Blue, Royal Blue, Egyptian Blue & Sky Blue 
Canary, Gold & Mandarin
Lime Zest, Lime Twist, Lime Green & Pear Green 

Hope you like this colourful card

ADU Feed the birds

There is a new challenge starting over at All Dressed Up and as always the theme is anything goes as long as it is using an All Dressed Up Image. Ive used Feed the Birds

Now I coloured this image up whilst I was on our little holiday in the glamping lodge- I was sitting by the log burner , colouring by virtually candle light and drinking red wine feeling all snug and autumnal. (I've added a few pics as its an indulgent memory for me!! ) Today - a month later and the weather is warmer at 18 degrees and I'm sitting in a t-shirt! What is going on!!??

I used Prismacolor pencils to colour the image and I die cut it with a spellbinders die. The edge of the patterned paper I did with a punch from Woodware. The paper is from My Favourite things and the background paper has wood grain effect and is from Bazzill basics. I added a wooden embellishment leaf and little bird and finally tied some twine in a bow and secured it with a matte enamel dot sprinkle from Doodlebug.

I tell you there are million worst places to colour! I would love to go back - reckon I could quite happily life a simple life!!

All for now - looking forward to seeing lots of enteries!!

Alpaca the Wine.

 Good Morning - Now you all know I love a pun - especially when an animal is involved too.... So here is Alice the Alpaca from Dr Digi -  sending her Happy Birthday wishes along with some celebratory wine!

I used two different colours of pompom trim  to keep a Peruvian theme (Are Alpaca's from Peru? and whats the difference between an Alpaca and a Llama??) along with the geometric patterened paper from My My Minds eye Jubilee Tangerine collection.

I cut the pattern panel and image using a My Favourite Things die called Wonky Stitched rectangle and then used stamps from Paper Smooches and Lawn Fawn Harolds ABC before finishing the card off with some co-ordinating enamel dots.

I only used a handful of promarker pens to colour the image -
Warm Grey  1 to 5
Surf Blue & Powder blue
Coral, Baby Pink & Blossom

Have a great Sunday... Liz (:(|)x
