Tropical Paradise!

The Color Challenge at the Outlawz has started and this week it was my turn to pick the inspirational picture and twist
another of my photos - this one was taken at the roadside in Malaga, Spain in January - I so want to go back!

So with those gorgeous colours I could only go tropical! For my card I have used an image from Diana Martin of a tropical mermaid

Isn't she gorgeous - I just pictured some tropical beach somewhere when I saw her! Coloured with the usual alcohol markers - the hibiscus are cut from some background paper, I have used a pearlised blue card as my base card and layered with some yellow and pink papers from my stash.

I hope you will come over and join in this week and show us your tropical treats! See you there!

Flowerpot Pretties!

Hello Wednesday and welcome to the new challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty. This week's challenge is sponsored by Lacy Sunshine for our theme of Flowers  and I got to play with a Flowerpot Pretty!

I coloured her with Spectrum Noir markers and Promarkers, the flowers are from some artificial hydrangea blooms that I coloured with the same colour as the image (you wouldn't believe it!) The background paper is a download from Crafters Companion, they have some beauties and the sentiment is part of the same download pack. The little gem butterfly is from my bling on a string - I love it!

I hope you'll come over and play at Penny's this week - can't wait to see what you make!

See you again soon!

Chick. Chick, Chick, Chicky!

My posting is like buses - you wait for ages then four come along at the same time, lol!

Gerda Steiner has a new challenge with a cute, cute digi as a freebie to enter the challenge! Her work is so sweet it always makes be smile! This little chic is no exception

I don't usually do Easter cards but I do need one for my granddaughter so this will be perfect!  I used a doily that I bought (heart shaped) that I coated with some pale pink glaze, the pink spotted paper is from one of the many sets I have from Nit Wits. I found the cute Easter ribbons at the Range and are from Docrafts, some yellow glitter hearts and the sentiment is printed onto yellow card.The chickie left a feather in the discarded shell too! Base card is blue pearlised.

Pop over to Gerda's and get the cute freebie and join in the fun!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!

April's Challenge

Yes it's the start of the April Challenge at Dragonfly Dreams and we want to see 'One for the Boy's (0 - 90)'.

We have a wonderful sponsor this month - Delicious Doodles - and they have some of the most beautiful digis for the guys, I have made a couple of cards, here's the first one

The digi is called In the Harbour and is such a wonderful scene - haven't we all bee at one harbour or other when the tide has gone out and the boats are there just waiting for the water to come and set them free!
I coloured it with Promarkers and tore the edges then inked all round with some indigo ink, I used some faded blue background paper that has been downloaded but for the life of me I can't find which download it was from! I added some frayed hessian, some raffia that I distressed and wrapped then added a starfish charm. The shell stamps are from a Rubber Tapestry peg stamp set, the seagull was for fun!

This  is my second card

Again coloured with Promarkers, I used some papers from my stash for the background I also had to give my dragon some flames so I used some iridescent vellum and drew some fire on it, the sentiment was hand written and embossed with some Dragon Red embossing powder. The image is called Tamed Dragon and is a fabulous image for any dragon lover (me included!!).

You have to come over to Dragonfly Dreams and see the wonderful creations the ladies have put together for your delectation and inspiration!

You could also win some digis from Delicious Doodles, so what are you waiting for!
