Anything With Wings over at Di's Digi Designs

Hello

It seems ages since I posted on my blog but these last few weeks have just flown by.  

Last week my son got his A Level results and he did extremely well and was accepted by his first choice University (Newcastle) to study Architecture.  We were so proud of him and a little relieved that things has worked out how he had hoped.  We are now getting ready to celebrate his 18th birthday on Bank Holiday Monday.  He didn't want a party so we are going out with family to a local restaurant on Monday evening then later next week he is meeting up with friends for a meal.  

Anyhow enough of my waffling as its time for a new challenge over at Di's Digi Designs and this week we want to see Anything With Wings (eg. butterflies, fairies etc.).  For my DT card I used Mouse with Love



The image has been coloured with Copic pens.

Birthday Flowers

Hello

Hope you are having a good weekend whatever you are up to.  We went out today for Sunday lunch which was a very nice treat and later I'm hoping to do some crafting and hopefully get ahead with some DT cards.     

I made this card earlier this week, but only got around to photographing it today.  


The image is Armfuls of Daisies from LOTV which I've coloured with Copic pens then fussy cut out. To give the illusion that the bunny's tail is fluffy I used a mixture of flower soft and fun flock.  Daffodil Liquid Pearls has been used in the centre of the flowers.

Story Teller

Hello

We have a new challenge starting today over at Sugar Nellie and the theme for this month is anything goes as long as you use an image or stamp sold by Funky Kits, which is the home of Sugar Nellie.

For my DT card I've used Story Teller which you can find here.  I usually use a 6" x 6" card base, but for this card I've used a 7" x 7" card base for a change.  I quite like the result and will have to make more.



I coloured the image with Copic pens then cut her out and positioned her, slightly raised, in the bottom left corner.  Her wings have been given a generous coating of glitter (not very visible in the photo - sorry!). 

Image : Story Teller (Funky Kits)
Medium : Copic Pens; Opaque White Paint (for the Toad Stools); Crystal Transparent Glitter (for her Wings)
Paper : Timeless Victorian (LOTV)
Sentiment : Set 98 - Sketchy Wishes (LOTV)
Dies : Joy Die (6002/0480); Corner Bow Die (Memory Box)
Embellishments : Cherry Blossom, Roses (Wild Orchard Crafts); Ribbon & Rhinestones (My Craft Box) 


I would like to enter the following challenges:

It's Christmas in July over at Di's Digi Designs

Hello

It is time for a new challenge over at Di's Digi Designs and this fortnight the theme is:

Christmas in July

I've used the super cute Holly Mice which is available from Di's Digi Stamps 


I coloured the image with my favourite colouring medium, Copic pens and paper pierced the jumpers on the little mice.  To give the illusion of fir I put a few drops of blending solution onto a small piece of towel and light pressed this over the mice.  Along the edges of the matts I've add glitter to give a little sparkle, other than that I've kept the layout fairly CAS.


Image : Holly Mice (Di's Digi Stamps)
Paper : Classic Christmas (LOTV) - Discontinued
Sentiment : Card-io Sentiment
Embellishments : Pearls (Meri Flower) and Viva Pearl Pen

I would like to enter the following challenges:

As You Like It Challenge : Favourite Marker, Ink or Pencils - I'm trying different mediums - eg. Inktense Pencils and Re-inkers, but I do love my Copics.  I love the shading effects you can achieve with them and the more I practice the better I'm getting, but I do still have a long way to go.
