Sketch Saturday ..Drawn with Character

 I have really enjoyed making this card ,from the start to the finish..The cute puppy is from Drawn with Character and was such a pleasure to colour with my Polychromos Pencils..I then cut him and mounted him onto craft card..I also used Craft card for matting the papers too..The papers are from a Polkadoodles cd called Horace and Boo..I love Nikky's work its so cute and fun and the papers are exceptional FABULOUS on each of the cd's I have brought ..Sadly although I collect most of her cd's I don't get a lot of time to colour them in .but I love them all the same ,I do the odd one but so fare never put them on a card Its hoe it goes when you have so many cards to do lol! ..I finished the card off with a small hessian bow,..

Sasayaki Glitter Blog Challenge Your favourite colour

New Challenge and this time it's Your favourite colour..Mine is RED as you can see..Hard work doing all the pleats,not sure if its the paper or the pencils I feel the reds did not work so well this time But I manage to get it done in a fashion,though I am not over excited with this one ..I used my usual Pencils Polychromos onto Neenah  and used pastel chalks for the background..I mounted her onto black card and I also mounted the backing papers onto it too ..The papers are glazed with encapsulated glitter ,sorry it does not show well on the pics which is such a shame.These beautiful papers are from Docrafts Bohemian paper pad..The flowers are cut from red card using die's from China and I have made a hole in the center and added some faux stamen ..I really like the look of these but really need to find a way to make it easier to put them in ,so fiddly for my poor old fingers lol!..but well worth it.

Progressive challenge Sasayaki Glitter

I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw her ,so fun being a witch in fun clothed ,all I could think of whilst colouring it was the old TV series "Bewitched"..Now I am showing my age lol!..I coloured her with my Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card ,then fussy cut her out,Then I created the card by first adding a background using papers from Hunkydory Delightful Deco paper pad,which I mounted onto Black card..I then used a piece of blue from the same pad and cut to size,then ripped some green and added these ..once trimmed I then went over the edges of the newly formed hills with a black Pitt Pen to help them stand out a little more..I then also mounted this onto the black card too and added to the card base..I bent the image slightly to give her a bit more shape then added her to the card with 3D glue gel..Its made a really quirky card ,I love doing cards like this ,but it does not suit all sorts of images...Thank you for popping by :)xx

Sketch Saturday..Just Me Stamps

Hiya ..for today's card I have the cutest little fox..I have coloured him/her in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..I then cut it into a short rectangle,then mounted it onto some soft mottled green card..I then used papers from Do crafts painted blooms,these too were mounted onto the same card.For the two lines one up and one across I used the paper off cuts from the insert rather than ribbon as it was easier than going down the hallway with my fluffy buddy who would bark if the wind blew a bit hard lol!..Far too noisy at three in the morning lol!..The wiggly line around the image is my addition as I wanted the image to stand out a bit more..To finish I added a few gems to the faux ribbon on the top and lower right..

Sasayaki Glitter..Challenge Reminder

This is such a sweet fun little Monster and a pure joy to colour..I have used Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card and did the background with pastel chalks..I then mounted the image first onto black then gold then black again as I really wanted the i,age to pop off the card..The papers I used are from a Tonic Paper Pad and these were also mounted onto black card..But for extra interest I Did a panel using the same paper but mounting it the same black,gold black as the image ,it ties the card together nicely..I will add the sentiment when I send it ,and also an age too as it is ideal for a young boy's birthday..This has to be one of my favorite subject cards for a while ,I hope you like it too ..

Sasayaki Glitter ..New Release

Todays card is of a rather Sassy Diva,I have coloured her in with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card,the background was done with pastel chalks..The Papers that I have used are from First Editions Mulberry Kisses and I have done all my matting for this one using Black card. The dies are from China and I have given the link below with the picture , I did those in Hunkydory Adorable Scorable , not really pleased with this result for these particular flowers but  next time will use my usual card,but it was the right colour and they look shiney and I do love the card it is so nice to use...Its a learning curve when you make cards as you go along and even those who do a lot of cards do mistakes :)..I have cut the flowers in Black as well and off set them and this makes them pop off the card a bit more and I have kept the leaves and centers black and it to give it a more trendy touch..To finish I added a pretty multi faceted gold gem to each flower and a row down the opposite side to the image..Thank you for popping by :)xx

World Wide Open Design Team ... New monthly Challenge Card

Hiya for today's card I used one of Julia's beautiful mermaids,I coloured her with Polychromos Pencils and did the background with Prismacolor as it was the colour I wanted for it..I then used a Tattered Lace basic die to cut it out and did the same with another piece of craft card to mount it onto and make it stronger ..I then cut a two inch strip and folded half inch on each side then folded in one side and out the other out..I then cut little V shapes out to allow me to go around the shape..I used tacky glue to add it to the outside of the base and the V shapes should be sticking outwards at this stage..I used a full length of A4 and about 6 inches to go all around ,but will vary on the size of your frame..I them made the front of the frame by cutting a larger circle ,I used a Tonic big plain die from one of the big sets for this and the same Size TL die for the center whole ..I did emboss the card with a CC Linen embossing folder.
Once done to add more strength I added some craft card and did the wiggly edge around the outside and inside by hand.I then glued it onto the V shaped pieces on the back,once lined up I obviously made sure it was also lined up with the inside ,I then popped it on its face and made sure each point was firmly stuck..It looks hard but it 's not..Well I did it with Dodgy finger so I am sure you can lol!..
All the dies used to decorate the bottom are from China,and have been hand coloured to suit..When looking for my pearls I found the tiny fish beads and the tiny starfish ,so I added those for more texture and dimension ..And to finish I added a variety of blue ,cream and white pearls..
