Happy St Patrick's Day!

Two posts in a run - I must be getting organised - NOT!!!

We have a new Colour Challenge at the Outlawz today and this week Jeanie chose our challenge and twist!
This is the perfect challenge to make either a St Patrick's Day card or a good luck card - perfect colours and twist!

So for my project I used a cute image that came from Whimsy stamps (when they did digis) and it is just too cute!


I coloured this little fella with my Polychromos pencils and just added a little Wink of Stella to the coins and his buckles. I used some paper from Tattered Lace and added some nice sparkly clovers!

I hope you like my little leprechaun and I do hope you can come over and play with us this week!

Sea Life.............

Hello I can't believe it's halfway through March already! Well at least I will make one post this month. Life has definitely got in the way of art and I coloured up this lovely image for a little stress relief! This beautiful mermaid is by Ike and I won it for being in the top 3 of one of their recent challenges - I was so honoured!

I coloured the image using my new favourites, Polychromos pencils, I cut it out using an oval die and the outside the box technique, I then printed off some shells, cut them out then shaped them using an embossing tool and used them to frame this beautiful image - I used a wooden word that I coated in marquasite glitter, all mounted onto a pearlised teal card - very simple!

I will enter this into Ikes latest challenge and Through the Craftroom Door I will also add to Pennys Challenge

Thanks for visiting I really do appreciate it!

Spring Window

Hello again, we have a new Progressive challenge started at the Outlawz and this month we have a beautiful image from Beccys Place called Spring window!
What a beautiful image and there is also a coloured image if you're in a hurry and a lovely sentiment too!

I coloured the image with pencils (I am trying to practice!) and layered it up with a pretty die cut from Apple Blossom and finished with some pretty flowers and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts!

I went for some very bright colours to bring the beauty of the window out!

I will enter this into Beccys challenge for March.
