DRAGONS THE WORD

Hi folks.
it's holiday season now and i spend a lot of my time in the beautiful Newforest in Hampshire.
I take my craft bag with me, but never seem to find time to do any crafting oddly.
i spend my days going to places to see the sights, and evenings just fly by.
anyway home for now, I did this little card using a stamp from the MFT collection called magical Dragons and coloured it with Copics.
the background I used my Copic ABS (after brushing the cobwebs off it) i really must use it more often.

Some random cards

Hello all.
I know i have been complete rubbish at keeping up to date with my Blog.
I honestly don't know where the days go.
Anyway without further ado, i will let you know how things are.
Last week i did my Copic colouring three class with Faye wyn-Jones (A wonderful teacher)
I always enjoy her classes.
I have decided to change how i make my cards and make them a little less fussy to highlight the image more.
i still want to add bits of bling and embellishments, but perhaps not so much of it.
anyway here are a few cards i have made over the past few months.

LOTV trio

Here are a couple of images that i coloured from LOTV trio.
I did these a few months back but had problems with my Blog.
I hope you like them.


 

Micely does it

Its been quite a while since my last post.....Ive been a bit of a globe trotter of late.....
Manchester has been a second home for the past few months with my beautiful daughter Natalie, so no cards being made.
This is a little image i downloaded from http://www.disdigistamps.com/
they are a bit pricey i think for a digi download but cute.
I used my Copics to colour them.
here is my take on these little cuties.

NEW BABY GIRL

Today i did a baby card for a GIRL.
This image was a download from an american site, i thought the image was cute, but i have to say expensive at $3 per download.
anyway it was so cute i had to have it anyway.
Im hoping to do a craft fair so ive been busy making lots of cards.

                                                      I used my copic pens for this one
                                        I did a bit of heat embossing....not done any for ages.

FARIES ON TIPTOE

Back to one of my most favourite stamps by LOTV.
Fairies on tiptoe must be the most famous of all the LOTV stamps.
lots of sparkle and soft tones.




Bee Happy

Today i thought i would share a card that i made using one of the new Whimsy stamps.
I thought it was a bit too much at first, but after looking at it for the past few days, it seems to have toned down.....perhaps it's just me.....

MAGNOLIA TILDA..INDIAN TILDA


I was asked to make a card for an Indian lady who dresses in traditional costume.

not an easy ask, but i remembered that i still had a few of my Magnolia Tilda stamps.

and lo and behold i found Indian Tilda.

She is just so sweet.

I coloured her in what i thought was colours that i see Indian people wearing on a day to day basis.

my lovely customer was delighted.

Flapper girl

Well i don't usually use images from card kits, but this gorgous 1920's flapper girl from Kanban just screamed "me me me "
I think it came in a kit i purchased some years ago, and put in a drawer.
Iv'e been having a clear out of stuff i never use (Which goes to my friends after school club for the kids) so it is put to good use and the kids love it.
anyways here is my flapper girl card.
The black flowers have been sprayed with my Copic ABS (Air brush system) which i think you all know by now I love to bits.
The foiled backing card is just lush...I added some swarovski crystals to her earing and head dress.
The flowers are from WOC (Wild Orchid Crafts) and the silver leafs are from eBay.
