Something a Little Different!

For my DT piece for Eclectic Ellapu this month I decided to make a mixed media frame. This is something I have been dabbling in for a few months and I have made a couple of larger frames for mirrors - this is my first small scale project on a frame for a 6" square picture

It is made using 3cm jig saw puzzle pieces that I have decorated with lots of different media, some are done with Pebeo effects paints, I used three different ranges - I so love these paints!, I have used some Color Art paint that is gorgeous and gives a different look from every direction and I have used some Mica powders that I directly mixed on an acrylic base. All the little elements I have used are from Craft Box and they send me the most luscious bits in a box each month, a very exciting company that if you haven't found them yet go have  a look at what they do!

So that's my project this month for the Pink team - the theme is anything goes so what are you waiting for come on over and PLAY!

Well we have another challenge starting at Eclectic Ellapu and the Pink challenge this month is Midsummer! So we would like to see all those lovely summer projects that make you feel like its midsummer and it will be very soon!
For my project I have used an old favourite stamp from Indigo Blu which I have coloured with Copics

I used some beautiful paper from the Kimono Collection by Crafters Companion and I layered up the image onto some matching adorable scorable card from Hunkydory, the letters have been die cut using the same colours.

So lets see all those beautiful projects over at Eclectic Ellapu1

International Dance Day

Sorry folks I have been very bad at blogging my cards this month but I had to post this one as I lurve it!
The Outlawz Festive Fridays challenge has a new challenge starting today and this week we have four new themes for you

National Firefighter Day
International Baby Day
International Dance Day
National Oatmeal Cookie Day

So for my card I had to make one for International Dance Day as I really wanted a reason to use this amazing digi from Bloobell Stamps - Lisa has the most off the wall imagination and this image just makes me laugh to think about it!

I coloured the image with Copics and added a background paper from Crafters Companion, Layered up with grey and white, with a lottle bakers twine for an embellishment!

I hope you will come over and join us for the challenge and do go over to Bloobell Stamps if you want something a little different!

Birthday Beauty!

I coloured up this adorable image from Conie Fong to enter into the FB challenge. I am still practising with my Copics and starting to get used to them!
The FB challenge is Bows and I added a pretty bow on this at the bottom with some lovely velvet ribbon and centred it with a pretty turquoise rose.

Isn't she just such a beauty! I will use her as a Birthday card for a friend.

I hope you like my little ballerina!
