Lil Bookworm Fairy- Ching-Chou Kuik Guest DT Post

I was thrilled to be asked this month to take up a guest DT spot on the Ching- Chou Kuik Facebook page. I absolutely adore the artwork on these digis so leapt at the opportunity to create a project.

 I used Lil Bookworm Fairy to create this card, coloured with a combination of promarkers and copics. I edged the image with distress ink and mat and layered using old distressed book pages, which I also used to create the roses.

Callas Lilly Faerie- MoonFlower DT post

Today I would like to share a card made with the stunning Callas Lilly Faerie by MoonFlower. I can't begin to express how much I love the MoonFlower digis. Andreia's art is exquisite and a joy to colour.

I have used promarkers in gentle muted shades, and kept my card clean and simple so as not to detract from the image itself. 

If you want to keep up to date with all the news at MoonFlower please pop along to the Facebook Page to find out whats new, and share your work using MoonFlower images. We'd love to see you there!

There's a new sexy challenge going on over at Karleigh Sue and this month the theme is Beach Hotties'.  I have worked with the gorgeous digi of the same name, Beach Hottie. The sentiment was free in a magazine and the papers are scraps from my stash.

We would love to see your entries so do join in if you can. You don't have to use a KArleigh Sue image but it's always good if you do ( there are some great ones to choose from in the shop) and there is an extra prize if you do.

Indigo Blu 'Pocket Full of Posies' Inspiration

I was thrilled to have been selected as one of the top three on last month's 'One Layer' challenge over at Indigo Blue Challenge and so when I got an email asking if I would like to create an inspiration piece for this month challenge, ' A Pocket Full of Posies' I just couldn't say no!

I love Indigo Blu's stamps, but when I rummaged through my collection I realised I own very little with flowers on ( and the one I know I do had gone into hiding!), but I remembered I had a set that was given away as a free gift on a magazine a while ago so I chose to use that. 

For the 'pocket' aspect I decided to put a slightly different spin on it and alter an otherwise boring pocket note book, making my project practical as well as pretty!

I used mixed media heavy duty card and stamped my flowers and leaves, using a paper mask to create a layered effect. I painted them and the background with Aquatint inks and let dry before stamping the sentiment and dragonflies. I painted the dragonflies in Twinkling H20's to give them some added shimmer.

Thank you so much to the team at Indigo Blu for inviting me to create this piece to inspire others. I had a great time making it!

I am hoping the recipient of my card likes cats as I chose to use I Heart Kitty ( find her here) . Personally I am more of a dog girl ( hint hint Cheri ;) ), but I do love this cute image too!
