Distress Ink Card!

Hi Everyone!

I am just popping in quickly.  I went along to a distress ink colouring class yesterday with the super talented Tracy Payne - Crafteezee.  It was a great day.  We did some colouring in the morning and made up a card in the afternoon.  I really want to try and get into distress ink colouring so this was a lot of fun!  

I finished off the card today and here it is:



This is only the second time I have properly tried colouring with distress inks, so a lot of work to do but I wasn't too upset with my attempt!!  

Just to say thank you to Tracy (and her family!) for the great day yesterday and if you are thinking of doing any classes then keep an eye on Tracy's blog for future ones!  

I would like to enter this into the Noor Design Sketch Challenge this month.

That's it from me.  
Love and Hugs

She is one of my favourites!  She is called "A Little Bit of Gossip" (which is now also available in digi!).  I coloured her up with copics and added a wooden ladybird to the flower.  The sentiment is from LOTV and thought went really well with this image!  I just added some sparkle and some tiny little punched butterflies.

All About the Boys - Sweet Stampin'

Good Morning Everyone

Well its been ages since I last posted.  I don't know where the time has gone.  Its been so busy since being back after the Christmas break.  I feel like I need another holiday!

Anyway, I am back this morning with a card for the new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.  This time our theme is:

"Masculine Cards"

Not my most favourite challenge! I do struggle with male cards!  Here is my card:




The image is called Birthday Boy from TiddlyInks and you can get it as a set from our sponsor this week Quixotic Paperie.  I coloured with copics and just layered onto some bazzill card stock.  The die is La La Land Heart Banner and the dotty paper is just from my stash.  I doodled around the edges (not quite as good as my teamie Fi!) and the sentiment stamp is LOTV. 

As I mentioned above our sponsor this week is Quixotic Paperie

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my blog over the last year.  I hope you will stay with me in 2015!

I am here today for our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin'.  The challenge theme this week is:

"New" 
(stash, baby, house, job, etc, etc)

My card is using some new stash:




This is my new stamp from Stamping Bella called Uptown Girl Fiona loves Flowers.  I knew that I wanted to keep the card simple with the stamp as the main focus.  So I coloured with copics and just layered up with some bazzill cardstock.  I have glittered parts of the flowers and added some small butterflies.  That's it!
