Ted and his Shed

Morning - I've been doing some colouring with my Copics and Ted and his shed from Dr Digi allowed me to have a right good play with texture and colour blends. 

I kept the card pretty simple as there is lots to see in the image so i covered the base card with garden patterned paper from Pebbles Jen Hadfield Simple life collection.
I used some wood grain kraft card to make a frame using a My favourite things stitched rectangle scalloped frame die and used 3d foam squares to attach this. I used a MFT's stamp set called Sweet Succulents to stamp a pot and coloured this with copics. I used scraps of green paper to make the leaves in the pot using a MFT fab foliage die. I added some natural twine across the top and knotted on a little spade charm.

I used promarkers for the skin as I am comfy with the blends I use and I need to practice this with teh copics but overall I love the nibs of my new pens!
For the shed I used - E31, E35, E37 & E29
Pots - E33, E08 & E11
Barrel - E29 & E37
Jumper - YR31 & YR23
Glass & sky - B000
Waistcoat - B93, B95 & B92
Roof - C01 - C07
Wellies - YG63, BG96 & G85
Leaves -  YG11 & YG23

I found lots of lovely combos to use in future and love the way this card and image turned out!
Thanks for stopping in...

Gripper gives big hugs.

Morning All - I will be in work when you are reading this but I can post thanks to the wonders of scheduling! So this week I have been colouring Gripper Stebson  just because he is a cracking image and I reckon he is really a big ol'softie who just wants to give you a big hug!! 

I used paper from My Minds Eye Alphabet soup collection and covered a square card base. I use a Die-namincs in and out diagonal stitched square die to cut the frame from red card and a Spellbinders nestibilities die to cut the star from black card. I die cut the greeting from gold card using Big Scripty die from Lawn Fawn and added some gold foam stars from Pink Fresh.

I used my usual skin combo for his skin but the rest of Gripper was coloured with Copics. I added little details with a gold pen and white posca pen.

Hope you like this weeks cards and come back next week to see my next Dr Digi creation,

I'm Nuts about you.

Morning - I had a fun afternoon yesterday sat watching the rugby (Come on England!!) and colouring lots of images. The weather was awful - It rained all day so I didn't leave the house. (I didn't even get dressed... I showered and put clean pjs back on!!!) It was a very lazy Saturday but also quite productive for a little project we have coming up at Dr Digi.
So today's card is the last one before Valentines day and I've used  Cuddly Critters Squirrel along with a pun (You all know I love a pun!) but you could use this little fella for all sorts of occasions with a different greeting. 

I used paper from Doodlebug Kraft in colour collection and the scalloped edge die from My Favourite things. I stamped a wood grain heart and the greeting from a discontinued stamp set at Some Odd Girl. I tied a little bow of twine and attached some of the nuts that I coloured and cut out.

I used these copics -
Squirrel- YR04, YR07,E08.E18
Belly & face - E50 & E53 with Blender.
Eyes - B32
Cheeks - RV10
Acorns - E31, E35 & E15
Acorn Cups - YG67 & YG95

I might go and get some real clothes on today! Who knows??
Have a lovely day - whatever you are wearing!

How you doin?

Morning - the new challenge is beginning at The Paper Shelter and the theme is all about love which being so close to Valentines Day is very appropriate isn't it.
I have used this fab image called How you doin?
I printed it on to Kraft card so I could use my Prismacolor pencils on the image.

I cut the paper panels from Echo Parks spots and dots collection and mounted them on white and I used a My Favourite Things die to cut a frame from the white also. I added some pink heart ribbon from American Crafts and made a little bow which I sealed with a pink resin flower.

I finally added some white pen details to the image and I'm please with how it has come out.

So now its your turn to show us your cards and creations - There is a fab prize to win - Just think how many digis that will buy you !!

I would like to enter this card into these challenges -

Have a good day and I hope you get some time to craft and colour!

Mum's Birthday.

Morning - Today's card is one I have made for my Mum's birthday using Dr Digi image called Salon Deirdrey. Mum asked for a voucher for the Hairdressers for her birthday so once again Dr Digi came to the rescue with this perfect image for me to create with. I am so grateful there are talented people out there to draw the pictures that I get to play with!!

I used paper from My Favourite Things Smitten pad and used a MFT puffy clouds die to cut the edges. I joined them together using acetate and them attached my image panel. The image was die cut with MFT inside outside stitched frame die and mounted onto silver mirri. I also used silver pen on the chair legs but you cna't really tell!!
I added a clear Happy Birthday sticker on some orange card and some Doodlebug letters to spell out Mum. I also used a white POSCA pen (Which I think is brilliant by the way!!) to add some details to the images. The rest of the image I coloured with my new copics... which I am in love with!!
Although I still used my promarkers for the skin... I still need more practice with the copics skin pens.

I used these copics -
Chairs - BG10, BG23, BG49
Cushion - B000, B23, B24, B28
Dress - RV10, RV21, RV14
Hairdryers - Y21, Y35, YR16
Dog & Deirdery's hair - E31, E35, E37

So it's not actually my Mums Birthday till tomorrow but we are going out for dinner today and so the card and gift voucher will be handed over later... hopefully she won't see this until then??!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Allsorts - spots and stripes
