Retro Selfie

 Good Morning!

Another Saturday and time for another challenge over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE
This fortnight's challenge is 
 
Sequins and/or Buttons

Here’s what I’ve come up with :)


I have used an image by Kenny K called Retro Selfie - Link is HERE
I've coloured the image using Spectrum Noir Pens.
I decided to use sequins on this project beens I use buttons a LOT! I also decided to do a shaker card which I haven't made in ages. It was really fun! 
The shaker surround, I cut out to look like a poloroid photo. Pretty cool eh?!
I’ve added extra detail to the card as well by adding a die cut "hello" and a navy bow.

Here's a few more pics....
 


Remember to follow the rules and enjoy the challenge.
We look forward to seeing your creations.

One For the Girls

Good Morning! 
Welcome to a new challenge over at Crafting When We Can - Link is HERE 

This fortnights challenge is 

"One For The Girls" 

We have a super awesome sponsor for this challenge,  Doodle Digistamps - Link is HERE
I've been lucky enough to use the image Bea and Tea - Link is HERE  
Rather than using the images on one card, I decided to make two! 
Here's what I've come up with....

 I went with a CAS look for these cards as I love the images, I wanted them to stand out more. 
I think I've achieved that! 

Both girls have been coloured in using Spectrum Noir Pens. 
I am going to post the colours used as sometimes trying to the find the right combinations is hard! 
The Sentiments are both printed onto the cardstock as well. 
I've added the die-cut borders to the tops and stickles and pearls for extra details. 

Here's a better look at the cards with the pen combos underneath...

Skin : FS3, FS1, FS2 | Hair : GB7, EB3, OR2, OR1 
Hat & Dress Blue : TB9, TB8, TB4 | Bow & Dress White : BGR3, BGR2, BGR1.

 Skin : FS3, FS1, FS2 | Hair : EB2, EB1, TN1
Glasses & Pants : DR7, DR6, DR5 | Top : IB3, IB2, IB1.

 There we have it... Two cute little CAS cards. 
We hope you enjoy the challenge... PLEASE REMEMBER TO FOLLOW THE RULES! 

Enjoy...

Jasmine Texting

 Hello! 
It's been a while since I've played along with any challenges but thought I'd enter a few. 

You know when you have that card to make for a difficult teenager that's never off their phone... 
Well, there's a perfect image for this!

It's by Lili of the Valley and is called Jasmine Phone - Link is HERE
The papers I've used are a download from Etsy from HuckleberryHearts - Link is HERE


Wanted to make the card girly as well as bright and bold. All three papers are out of the download paper pack. I love how they complement each other. 
The image I've coloured using Spectrum Noir Pens. The paperclips are from IKEA. I love them! I love how they add more detail to the card. The three roses are made out of foam. And I've also added spiral staimen. These I've been looking for for like forever! I finally found them!! YAY! 
I will be selling these from my Etsy shop once I've listed them if anyone is interested. 

Here's a few close ups of the details and a shot that shows layers....



 Thanks for popping by. 
I hope you like my creation :) 

I'm entering the following challenges with my creation:

No DP! - My Time To Craft

 Good Morning!

Another Saturday and time for another challenge over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE
This fortnight's challenge is 

No DP's! ( No Designer Papers)

Here’s what I’ve come up with :)




I have used an image by Make It Crafty called Roxi and it’s been coloured in using Promakers and Spectrum Noir pens. I've also used Spectrum Noir refills to make my background. 
I didn't want to add embossing and wondered if it would work. I got a tiny amount on the end of the pipet and just splattered it over the card. It's subtle but I like it.
I’ve added extra detail to the card by using a wooden saying "Happy" and a purple bow.
 

Remember to follow the rules and enjoy the challenge.
We look forward to seeing your creations.

CWWC DT - Animals

Gooooooood Morning! 

Super excited today as I get to see my best friend and my Godson, which ironically, what I'm about to show you today is for him! 

So a new challenge over at Crafting When We Can - Link is HERE 
And this fortnight's challenge is Animals. 
Brilliant! As I've been waiting to show this!! 

So, I wanted to make someathing for my Godson and remembered his room is all about animals. 
This is what happened....


There's going to be a few pics!! 
Everything on this jungle mobile apart from the "TED" has been cut out by hand. 
"TED" is die cut. It's a good job dies work with felt too! 
So, everything is made out or felt and handstitched together. 
I had to get some buttons in there somewhere! 

Here's some more pics....


I soooooo loved making these, I'll probably end up making another one as well. 

I hope you enjoy the challenge and please please please... follow the rules. 

Enjoy! 

:)
