Colouring part 3

Last of the three pieces of colouring. For this one i chose a bolder flower pattern. I chose three set of colours and four shades with that range.

I am pretty pleased with how this one came out.

Hope you like it

Colouring part 2

Another hand coloured piece from the colouring book.

For this one i tried to make the fairy dresses look like they have movement and natural shading on the skin tones and hair.

I think i managed to make the daffodils & narcissus look real to.

Hope you like it

Colouring part 1

A little something different this week.

I have been trying to get to grips with my alcohol markers, so instead of doing a card (even though i don't put backs on them) 

I have used a colouring book i was bought for Christmas as a way of practicing shading techniques.

Anything for you..

This one is for Auntie Mary who is very poorly in hospital. I know you shouldnt have favourites but .... Anything for you Auntie Mary.

Whilst there was a break in the Creative Expressions weekend takeover i created this one by a crafty accident. I started with a completely different idea.... then i remembered Mr Lockwood saying "Life is too short to measure" so i changed to a random pattern.

I used only the Italian decorative frames and only the two smallest dies. I started with a piece of milk card and cut the smallest die, eight times. and mounted it on a slightly larger piece of pixie powdered paper in teals, blues and purples.

I added it to a larger mount of iris and milk and added gems stones to the corners. I cut out the two smallest dies for the centre topper on mounted it on to pixie powdered card to set it off.

Hope you like it

Thanks for being there for me...

This sentiment is so perfect for me right now. Tough times by 15 yr old Staffy Blade is very poorly and soo many people have made the extra effort to support me... this is for all of them.

I only used one striplet die, the quilted blocks and my favourite pixie powders, in blues, teal and silver.

The top layer i cut out an aperture and the second layer the detailed striplet section. I mounted this on deep blue and milk foundation card and finished it off with a navy blue ribbon and a butterfly from my stash.... and last but not least that wonderful sentiment.

Thanks for being there for me.

Sideways striplet

I started with a piece of spearmint green card and cut an aperture using the Lattice and Lace striplet die. Using a slightly larger piece of card i cut out the same striplet without using the outside edge. I mounted these two layers together adding a piece of pixie powdered paper behind to accentuate the design.

I added these layers to another matt in periwinkle. I added this to another matt of milk and spearmint green.

I finished the design off my added pearls to the centres of the of the flowers and stamped a sentiment using black archival

Just Because

Hope everyone had a good festive break.

After watching Lisa Hortons graphmaster shows I thought it was time to try a bit of colouring. I found some old Lily of Valley stamps and this is what i created.

I used my Harmony Alcohol pens and created this cute little design.

I framed it with milk and spearmint green card
