Namaste with The Paper Shelter

Today I'd like to share with you a card I've created with another beautiful image from The Paper Shelter.


This gorgeous image is called 'Namaste', isn't she serene! I coloured her with Letraset Tria and Promarkers before fussy cutting her out.


I used patterned papers and stickers from Basic Grey's Koshi Collection for this card. Along with some Green Organza ribbon and buttons to embellish my card.


I added my image to my card with foam pads to add some extra dimension.

I love how this card turned out, so beautiful and peaceful, It gave me a wonderful opportunity to use some beautiful papers I'd been saving.  I hope you like her as much as I do.

Time for the Bubbly with Sassy Studio Designs

Today I'd like to share with you a card I've created using one of the gorgeous images available in the Sassy Studio Designs store.  Unfortunately Sassy Studio Designs is closing at the end of August, but you've still got plenty of time to grab those images that you need to add to your collections.

My card today features 'Bubble Bath Sassy';
I coloured this bathing beauty with Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with the addition of some white gel pen, and some collage pauge glossy sealant on the water bubbles to add some shine.


I used EK Success Bubble Corner and Edger punches to create the borders around my background papers. My sentiment stamps are from MFT's Time for the Bubbly set of stamps.  To embellish my card I added a scattering of dew drop gems.

That's all from me for today, Thank you for visiting with me, Bye for now

More Mixed Media Challenge - Anything Goes + Purple

Today I'd like to share with you my latest DT creation for the More Mixed Media Challenge Blog.


Here's my creation,
 I had great fun creating a sign for my craft room door.  I used an MDF blank from Joannasheen.com which already had the layer of newspaper on it, so no need to prime and wait for gesso to dry.

For my background I used my NeoColour Water Soluble Crayons in shades of purple and dark blue. I the stenciled some  Imagination's Crafts Alchemy wax onto my background. I also used the Alchemy Wax to colour my wooden letters.
I then added some Glitter paste through a stencil, before leaving to dry.

Once my background was dry, I add a thick layer of Liquitex Gloss Super Heavy Gel; I love this stuff, works brilliantly as an adhesive aswell as giving a lovely gloss finish. Whilst the Gel was wet, I added my wooden letters and an assortment of flatback gems.  

I left my sign to dry overnight before adding my ribbon hanger. The sign now hangs in pride of place on my Craft Room door.

I wasn't sure I liked my sign when the Gloss Gel was still wet, it really did look a mess. However once dry it looks so much better.

That's all from me for now, don't forget to hop over to the More Mixed Media Challenge blog to check out the awesome creations from our Design Team, and to link up your creations to our challenge.

With Love from The Lady

Today I'd like to share with you a card featuring one of my favourite images from The Paper Shelter; She's called 'The Lady' and she is so classy and beautiful, I couldn't resist creating a card with her.

I coloured this beautiful image with my Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with the addition of white gel pen for highlights and Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens in Macaroon and Silver.

My background papers are a mixture of leftovers from previous projects and DCWV Everday Essentials patterned paper.  I used some Turquoise/Blue Mirri Card to layer my papers on, and add a nice bit of shine to the card.  My sentiment is from Crafter's Companion (Sheena Douglas - A Little Bit Sketchy - Only Words, From the Heart).

To embellish my card I added some satin ribbon in Turquoise, Dark Blue and Bright Pink, along with with Turquoise Glitter Flourish Stickers.

I love how this card turned out, and had so much fun creating it. Nothing quite beats making a pretty card.
Hope you all like it as much as I do.

Left of Center Creative Challenge #133 - Distressed

It's time for a new challenge over at the Left of Center Creative Challenge blog, so time to embrace our dark side and create something wickedly creep and offbeat.

Our sponsor this week is the awesome KennyK Stamps


This week our theme is Distressed or Left of Center;

For my project I used the wonderful 'Brick Wall Smash' Background image from KennyK Stamps.  It's a wonderful background image, very versatile, It did take a while to colour all those bricks, but it was great fun and very relaxing.

It took me a while to decide what I wanted to do with the hole in the wall; then I thought 'Smaug' and decided to draw a dragon's eye.  I used my Letraset Tria and Promarkers to draw the eye, with the addition of Black Faber Castell Pitt Pen for the really dark bits, and white pen for the highlights.

I hope i've inspired you to play along with our challenge.  Don't forget to visit the Left of Center Creative Challenge Blog to get even more inspiration from our awesome Design Team.
