Christmas Bunny





The images was coloured with Copics.  I've created the texture on the bunny using a technique demonstrated by Alyce at Kit & Clowder in her Markers 101 Class.

The image was cut out with a Spellbinders die then distressed.  It's then been mounted onto some black card cut with another die cut to frame it.

The shaped card has been covered with black card.  On top of this are design papers from First Edition.

I've finished this little cutie off with some Christmas paper flowers, some wooden leaves from Hobby Craft, a wood chip sentiment and elements which I got from Scrap and Craft.
Hope you like my inspiration today

Christmas Deer

This is the second lot of inspiration for Wendy's new release images at All Dressed Up.  this time I've used Christmas Deer.
The image was coloured with Copics and I've kept the design simple to showcase the image.

The image and black card behind have both been distressed.  I've added a few sequins and a few rhine stones to finish the card.

You can see the rest of the Dressy Girls inspiration in the Facebook Group and on the challenge blog

Sketch Time

Here's our latest sketch at Outlawz Sketch Challenges, where this month we're sponsored by TLC


For my inspiration this week I've used Vintage Autumn Leaves Burn, the image has been coloured with Copics.


I've cut it out and mounted it onto black card cutting that so it would go into the wood chip frame I bought at Scrap and Craft.

The design paper is in autumn colours from First Edition.  I've also used some more black card to frame the card.

Hope to see you at the challenge

Wings

I decided to sketch in some clouds behind her and one so she looks like she's standing on one.  The image was coloured with Copics and polychromos pencils.  Only coz I didn't quite get the Copic colouring right and I needed a little more depth of shading in there  LOL!

She's been finished off with some distressing of the image edges creating a single layer card.  A few rhine stones adding a bit of interest and bling / magic to the card.

Hope you like my angel

Cozy Christmas

Have you seen this beautiful image from Createful Heart - it's called Christmas Eve Kitty.  If you want to practice some colouring it's just perfect!
I've coloured the image using Copics and framed it with some black card.

The design papers are from Docrafts, Santoro and Lili of the Valley.

To embellish the card I've added some black gems and some wooden number I got in Hobbycraft.

Hope you love creation

Nut Roast for Christmas

Perfect Christmas card for Veggie - LOL!!

I've turned an autumn image from our sponsor TLC at Outlawz Sketch into a Christmas card.  I have no idea where I get my ideas from sometimes :)

This image is called Sharing Dinner Squirrels.  I've coloured it with Copics.  It's been cut out with a Spellbinders die, distressed with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz and mounted onto a black frame.  this was cut out of black card using another Spellbinders die.

Here's our sketch for this week.  I've flipped the background but kept the image going in the same direction.


My design papers are from Studio Lite and I've also used some more black card.

No embellishments for this one, just a sentiment from Scrap and Craft coloured with black Copic.

Hope you like my inspiration today and we see you at the challenge ;)

Always

Created especially for my mum and dad's anniversary.  I created this card using Ragged Romeo from Mo Manning.  My mum loved orange to I had to do the girl in that colour.  To compliment I've used a dark green for the boy.
The image was coloured with Copics.  In the back group I managed to splodge some ink so I drew a kit in the sky to hide it with pen then added a couple of bird as well.

The design papers were picked out to match the image colours and are from Lemoncraft, Studio Lite and Santoro.  I've also used some black card.  All these were distressed.

I've added an ALWAYS sentiment instead of anniversary, this is from Scrapienic.  There are a couple of tint wooden hearts bought off eBay.  The flowers are all autumn colours and are from The Ribbon Girls and Noor Design.

Hope you like the card I made for them
