Friday Sketch Challenge

Been out of action for a couple of days, not feeling that great, but, am finally back on track! Have had a go at the Friday sketch challenge. If you fancy a look, find it here:-

I have used a tilda stamp with flowers, coloured with copic markers. Stamped leaves and tag from PM collection. Dovecraft paper, inked edges and matching ribbon. Hope you like my efforts. I am loving my copic pens, although, am struggling to get respectable effects with darker colours. Anybody have any hints? They would be most welcome!!! Went a bit mad yesterday and bought more stash from Hobbycraft, and had to go back today as the stamp set I bought at a reduced price I already had!! My dh is convinced I am losing my marbles!! I have a tendencey to agree with him!

Finally getting to grips with this blog business

Hello everybody! Although I have struggled, I am starting to get to grips with the gadgets etc on my blog, although I have still only managed one successful blinkie! Hope you like my new look blog! Thanks to UKS members for your help!! Got some new drawers for storage yesterday, and my dh has accurately noticed today that although the drawers are now filled, there is no more space anywhere else! - How does that work???!! LOL

Thanks for looking!

Friday Sketch challenge

21 February 2009

Here is my effort for the latest Friday sketchers challenge at - go and have a look if you fancy having a go!
I have used Tilda with letter stamp, using watercolours and glitter for the dress and copic markers for the face, hair and arms. Have used PM creative tones paper with inked edges, punched flowers, American Crafts rub ons and a stick on sentiment. I am really pleased with this one! Please let me know what you think!! Still enjoying playing with my copic markers!!

Another Magnolia Card!

Sunday 15 February 2009

Been playing with the new Magnolia stamp again! Same stamp as yesterday, with handcut dress and gingerbread heart. Tilda coloured with copic markers and have inked and embossed some card to make the grass! Inked edges and some punch flowers complete the card, with small doodling to edges of flowers, ric rac and frame. Hope you like my efforts!

Playing with Magnolia!

Happy valentines day to all! Have been playing with my new Magnolia stamps and here is my effort for the Friday Sketchers Challenge #39. Here is a link to the website if you fancy a look yourself -

Not posted for a while!

Haven't posted for a while! Just not got round to it! Have bought some Magnolia stamps, and am having a lot of fun playing with these just now! Here is my first card! I used Papermania Creative Tones Raspberry Champagne paper, with a chipboard negative covered in pink holographic paper ( I know it looks purple!!) I used Watercolour pencils to colour in my Tilda image! I'm quite please with how it turned out! What do you think?? Any tips would be most welcome! Having looked at everybody elses cards, my meagre effort seems a bit flat, so I am now looking for some markers to try them! They seem to give an amazing effect!!
