Things with Wings


I've used Bumble Bee Blossom from SheepSki Designs for my inspiration.  I've coloured it with a combination of Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.
Cut with a Spellbinders die, the edges have been distressed with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz.  I've then scattered two types of embossing enamel onto it.

The shaped card has been covered with black card.  Two square cut design papers from Lemoncraft and Joy Crafts have been distressed before adding then to the card base.

My finishing touches are some apple blossoms and lilies.  There are also some laser cut wood chip elements from Scrapienic and a "Made with Love" sentiment.

Hope you love my inspiration and we see you at the challenge

Breezy Beach Walk


To get this look I've used a combination of ProMarkers, Copics, polychromos pencils and a white gel pen.

I've just framed it with some back card and added a "Summer" sentiment.

Just plain and simple to show the image off

Happy flowers

Did anyone notice, I was sneaky and added an extra image into my shop at the weekend :)

The image was coloured mainly with Copics (maybe I'm starting to get used to them a bit) I only used my ProMarkers on the stems and polchromos pencils on the stems and to create the petal detail.  What do you call the tiny thin lines that run along the petals that look like tiny veins?

Anyway I'm rambling on.  The background was also done with Copics.  I've doodled a border, framed it with some black card and added a Birthday sentiment from Scrapiniec.
Now who to give it to........

Purple and blue just for you

It's Wednesday, Sketch day over at Outlawz.  We're sponsored this month by DigiStamps4Joy.
My inspiration for this week is using Happy Birthday 2 U.  I've coloured it with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils leaving some parts completely uncoloured and white to give a contrast.

Here's our sketch for this week


The image was fussy cut to give the internal square shape n the sketch.

Behind the image is some purple design paper from Lili of the Valley to frame it.

The only thing I've done is a little doodling to frame the whole card making it a very plain and simple card.

Hope you like my inspiration for this week and we see you at the challenge

Purity

Sweet and innocent - that's what I was aiming for with this one.  The Purity came from the white rose in the black and white image.

I've coloured her with ProMarkers, Copics and polychromos pencils.  At first I did the rose pink and my hubby suggested I did it red.  So for the highlights on the rose this time are done with a white gel pen, because I'd gone too far to do them with my pens and pencils.

The design paper is from Joy Crafts and I've used some black card to frame her.

The heart and sentiment (coloured black with Copic) are from Scrapienic and the ribbon I've had in my stash for ages, but I think its a Docrafts one.

Hope you like my inspiration for today

Bear Feet

Tiny guy in his jumper & bear feet.  This image is called Bear Feet - well coz I've drawn his slipper with paws on :D
You can find Bear Feet which come as two images (girl & boy) in my Etsy shop.  Did you know you can get 10% off my images by quoting SKIANDREA10 at checkout.
I've coloured Bear Feet with ProMarkers, he's then been cut out with a Spellbinders die.  I've used a different Spellbinders die to cut the background circle behind the image.

I've goe very simple with this one and just used lots of layers of design papers from Maja Design.

The banner was cut using a Fantasy die and I used three of the hearts from that around the image.

To finish off I've used a Happy Birthday sentiment from Lili of the Valley.

A bit too pink?

Wednesday Sketch team at Outlawz is being sponsored by DigiStamps4Joy this month.

I think I may have gone a bit overboard on this pink for this week LOL!!  I'll let you decide.

I've used two images on one card.  The first you can see here is image Tinka in the Tower.  The second one is behind with the flowers.  I've made it into a piece of design paper to fit in with the sketch.  This image has the reference Daisy Power.

Both images were coloured with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  I fussy cut the top image to fit later.

Here's our sketch for today


Apart from the coloured card. I've used some black card and design paper from Lemoncraft

I just happened to have the perfect embellishment to finish the card, some neon pink enamel dot - hee hee!!

Hope you love my inspiration even if you don't like pink :D

Splash

The image has been coloured with ProMarkers, I've then cut it out with a Spellbinders die.  The circle frame was cut out of Maja Design paper with another Spellbinders die.


I've used more Maja Design papers for the rest of the card layering it up.  Added to this are some fish stockers from Little B (a find in Hobby Craft).  There's a sentiment from Scrapienic coloured with navy ProMarker and a whale in a bottle.

The only other ting I added were a few blue gems.
Happy crafting!

A Little Steam Power

Yes I have finally drawn another boys image :D
I've coloured the image with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  I struggled a bit to do a quick colouring in these mediums.  I'm used to doing steam trains in water colour paint.  I sold a few paintings of them when I was in my 20's :)

The image has been framed with black card and I've added a Happy Birthday sentiment in deco art script from Scrapienic.  The sentiment was also coloured with ProMarkers.

Hope you like my boys card inspiration

Wow where did July go?  It's the last inspiration from me this month at Outlawz Sketch with Drawn by Krista as our sponsor


I've used Summer Beach Items for this card.  The colouring was done with ProMarkers.

Here's our sketch for this week


Two of my images have doodled borders.  The sentiment was created at the time of printing.

Where the flowers are in the sketch I've used the beach ball and sandcastle by fussy cutting them


The design paper I've used gives a kinda sandy background and it's from Studio Light.  Behind this is a piece of black card to frame it.

Hope to see you at the challenge

Mythology

Someone mentioned horse to me last week at work.  That was enough to set me off at a tangent and I've ended up drawing Peggy.  A horse of the mythical flying variety :D


So how did I colour it.  The background came first with Copics.  The then used ProMarkers and polychromos pencils for Peggy.  I used only a slight colouring on the horse so it would have a beautiful glow.

Once coloured I scattered white embossing enamel across the background for a starry night scene.

All I've done is framed the image with some black card to showcase it for you.

Don't forget I've two challenges running every month on the Blog Challenge and in my Facebook Group

Happy crafting lovely people

Cherry Blossom

A few months ago I was in my mother in laws back yard where she has lots of lovely flowering plants in pots.  one of them was a cherry blossom.  I thought it looked so pretty I used it to create an image with, which I've only just had time to colour up and make a card with  LOL!


This image was coloured with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  I also roughly sketched in a white painted wall into the background with Copics and this is what my mother in law has in her back yard and it makes a perfect backdrop

Once finished I scattered shabby white embossing enamel which also has glitter in it and gives a lovely shine (not that you can see it here) onto it and heated it.  Framed with black card all I've added is a wood chip Happy Birthday sentiment from Scrapienic.

Hope you love what I did with the cherry blossom

Love Life

Today is out second lot of inspiration for the July new release images.

I've used Holiday Girl, you can find here her in Wendy's Shop.  She come with mix and match clothes, sunglasses, hat, sandals and sentiments.

I've coloured her with ProMarkers and then fussy cut her.  I got to thinking while I was at it wouldn't it be cool it she actually wore the sunglasses and hat.  It was a bit of a challenge but I managed it :D

The design papers I've used are from Lemoncraft and Studio Light and have been distressed.

The large Love Life sentiment is from Scrapienic.  I've also added a tiny wooden heart, some flowers and a few pearl gems.

Don't forget to check out the Facebook Group and the blog challenge for the rest of the inspiration.

Summer Walk


It was the perfect excuse for me to turn my coloured image 50's Chic below into a card :)
The image was coloured with ProMarkers, Copics and polychromos pencils.  The white spots on the dress were done with a gel pen.

I've transformed the plain image by distressing the edges with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz, distressing the edges and then using white and aged silver embossing enamel.

I've turned it into a summer themed card by adding a Scripienic sentiment which I've coloured with black Copic

Here's a close up of the flowers arrangement on the left side.  There are some twigs from Scrapienic and the flowers are from The Ribbon Girl.

The design paper I used were distressed and are from Lemoncraft and Studio Light.  I've added some pops of pink to match the flowers and coz it's my favourite colour of course ;)

There are two different types of lace between the layers and a doily.
Finally to finish off a few pearl gems

Hope you love my inspiration today and we see you at the challenge.  Don't forget to check out the other AMAZING makes by the rest of the Fussy & Fancy ladies!
