It's all about the Critters

It's time for a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and this week's theme is all about critters.

Those of you on facebook may be familiar with Willow - Sheena's magical talking dog!

This stamp is actually a drawing of the dog superstar herself, and I was fortunate enough to colour up the images for the original stamp packaging.

For my card today I have coloured Willow in with my Spectrum Noirs and cut her out so I could decoupage her over my scene.

For the background strip I masked off the card base before using a round blender to add distress inks, using a grass stencil to create the hills. Very simple to do but very effective!

Thanks for stopping by today, and I look forward to seeing your creations over at Cute Card Thursday.

More trees from Sheena

Happy Sunday everyone. I am back today with another card featuring trees as part of Alison's tree challenge over on the Sheena's Inkettes challenge page.

You still have a couple of weeks to enter, so we would love to see what you create.

For my card today I masked off a narrow panel and then used sparkle pens and glycerine to create the background effect.

I stamped the tree straight over the top and used sparkle pens to paint it. It is remarkably easy to paint a tree as you just go over the leaves with your paler colour and then literally blob in your darker shade to get a lovely 3d effect.

The whole image is then lifted by mounting on to plain black card.

Thank you so much for visiting today. I would love to hear your comments.

Cute Card Thursday with All Dressed Up

Hi everyone.

It's  time for a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, where we are sponsored by All Dressed Up and our theme is What's New.

So what is new for me is using an ADU image that is specifically for a boy!

This is a great little image for young boys as I am pretty sure that most boys are in to gaming these days!

I have water coloured my image  and paired it up with something 'old' in the form of some old papers that i found in my stash.

Thanks for visiting today and I look forward to seeing you over on Cute Card Thursday.

Sheena's Inkettes Chalenge - Trees

Hi all,

I'm popping by today with a tree themed card as part of the Sheena's Inkettes facebook challenge.

If you are a member of the Inkettes facebook group you can enter our challenge very simply by posting a picture of a card you have made in to the challenge photo album.

I have made a stepper card of sorts and gone all 'smooshy' with Spectrum Sparkles and water...all put together on Sheena stamping card of course!

Thanks for your visit today.
