take it easy

On the Whiff-of-joy challenge blog this week Heather has made a lovely sketch for us to follow.
I have used the chair and coloured it with distressing inks. I mounted Willow in the chair and 3d mounted her in areas to give it depth.I have used various papers to hopefully give it a warm feeling. The picture isn't great hopefully I will be able to change it tomorrow.
Willow is coloured with prisma pencils. Papers are from imaginisce & basic gray.
I have 3d glazed the mug to make it look like ceramic.

herd its your day

Got this little cutie of a stamp from Sugar Nellie while at the SECC. I hope I have remembered right, she is called Custard.
I have used the sketch from Sketch-saturday and it was great to work with.I have done very little with this card.
Stamped the image and coloured with copic pens. Chalked around the image so it didn't look so stark. Papers are from imaginisce. Couple of different ribbons. I created the greeting with a stamp alphabet and the 'its your day' bit is a studio g stamp. Hope you like it.

family gift bag

The challenge on High-hope-stamps this week is anything but a card.
The challenge was set by Nikki check out her blog its great, grab a drink and pull up a chair and have a browse.
The challenge on Cute-card-thursday is starry night. The paper I have used has stars all over it.
I got a paper bag yesterday with my shopping so I put it away just for this. I used a stamp pad to colour the handle to match. Made 2 panels, punched some holes for the ribbon pulled it through. Made a bow and attached it with the brad to secure the label also.
On the back of the label I put the greeting. Coloured the image with copic pens, made the background with distress ink. Hope you like it.

If flowers were friends

I really haven't been able to get anything done for the last few days. Then yesterday I went to the SECC to the Hobbycraft show and had a browse and bought some goodies. I picked up this little cutie from the Sugar Nellies shes called Daisy and I think she is such a sweetie. I have used the sketch from Friday-sketchers blog. Claudia has made the sketch and it was wonderful to work with.

The sketch on ismaki challenge blog is by Isa this week. I have used some of my favourite colours for this challenge. I stamped the bear and masked him of. I stamped the paws with versamark and let it dry. Chalked with pearl finish chalks, distressed the edges and lined with gold.
I have a stamp with this verse but it was to big to use so I printed the verse on the vellum with the computer.

love and joy

The sketch on Friday-sketchers this week is from Beatrix and is a lot of fun to work with.
I used my Papermania "A wonderful Christmas time" pad which I love as it is full of traditional colours. I used my circle scribe to cut the circle.
I stamped the Snow family by Sugar Nellie stamps and coloured them with my prismas.
I tied the ribbon before attaching it to the card. It worked out just right as the ends of the ribbon say Happy New year.
I used my sizzlits to cut the oval.
Snowman charm I have had awhile. I am one of those crafters that gets stuff and loves them and doesn't want to use them and I am working on letting them out of the draw and onto my projects.
