Friday Sketchers Challenge No. 45

Another post for the same day!! I have had a go at the Friday Sketchers Challenge No. 45. I have used a cute owl stamp with dovecraft papers, an embossed metal strip and cricut flower embossed with cuttlebug. Owl is coloured using copic markers. I have lined the inside of the card with matching paper, the tag sentiment is "have a hoot!" Apologies for the photo, you can see my hands over the card holding the camera, shadowed by the light!! Thanks for looking!

What has happened to all the blinkies

Anybody out there noticed that some of the blinkies on everybody's blog have been replaced by a photobucket image which says that the limit has been exceeded?? Not sure what is causing this!

Mojo Monday Challenge

Hi all! Well, I have had a go at the Mojo Monday challenge (you can have a look here:- )
This week it's a sketch, and I have used Tilda with heart, coloured in using pencils and copic markers. I have used Basic Grey Sultry papers with inked edges and have pierced the edges of the card and included some faux stitching. The stamped sentiment is from a Hero Arts set. I hope you like my efforts!
Today, I am recovering from having had my 2nd assessment of 3 for BSL last night (how stressed was I!!!) So, to make myself feel better, I have bought myself a set of Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils!! I am really chuffed with them!! So, I'm off to have a play!!

Spoonful of sugar challenge

Hello everybody! Well, I didn't get to go to the NEC today, although I am hoping to get to Aintree Hobbycraft show next month. However, I did finally manage to get hold of some Daisy & Dandelion stamps today, which I have been coveting for just over a week and haven't been able to find in stock! They leapt into my basket in the shop, honest! And now, if I haven't already spent enough, I am hunting for even more copic markers!

I have had my first go at Challenge #42 at Spoonful of Sugar which this week was a sketch. You can have a look here if you fancy a go!

I have used Dovecraft papers, with a cuttlebug embossed background panel, rub on stitching and brad and flowers from stash. The stamp is by Hero Arts and has been watercoloured using sakura pens and a marvy pen for the base. Hope you like my efforts, and now I am finally off to play with Daisy & Dandelion! Hope to upload some of those soon!

Copic Colour Challenge

Hello everybody! Haven't blogged for a few days, been busy at work! This is my first go at the Copic Colour challenge ( I used my new Hero Arts clear stamps, Four Dolls, with hand cut fans, embossed background plate and hand stitching to border of card. Japanes Doll and fans coloured using my copic markers. Colours used:- Face - E00, E13, R20 Dress and Fans:- RV11, R08. My meagre effort looks very basic compared to some of the stunning designs I have seen by the DT etc, but I enjoyed making this card and using the sketch. This is also the first time I have added some stitching to a card too! Haven't yet put on a label for this card as I haven't decided what I will use it for yet!!

Have also had a go at the card school idea in the latest issue of QCME.
Have also used the copic markers for the face here, (E00, E13 and R20) The dress is stamped, embossed and handcut with matching paper to the half circles and lantern. I hand cut the aperture and used a coordinating folded paper with different paper peeking through! Finished off with a peel off border. Thanks for looking and hope you like it!
