I have an Oddball Art image to share with you today.  She's called Lexi, and I have coloured her with markers.

My papers are from the Bo Bunny Penny Emporium pack, other than the black with white dots, which is from the Bo Bunny Enchanted pack.

I used a Marianne Design set of dies to cut all the shaped bits.  The little tag is a chipboard sticker.  I've added a little bow, a rose and a Ribtex heart charm to it.  The gem swirls are Bella! Bling, and the flowers are Green Tara.  There's also a strip of black lace.

As usual, we have a fantastic prize from The Paper Shelter up for grabs!

Hi There Crafters!

I have a bit of mid-month inspiration for you today, and a reminder to get your entry in for a chance to win a great prize.  Our theme is ANYTHING GOES, but if you feel like playing along with our twist for the month, we'd like to see your FLOWER FRENZY!

I have two images to show you today.  Spring Fairy, and Toadstool Thicket.  

This is what Toadstool Thicket looks like on it's own:

I layered the image up 8 times to create a full fairy garden background for my fairy, and then coloured up everything with markers.  I've added a few flowers in the corners.  They're from 49 and Market, and Petaloo.

I have a few close-up shots to show you, but first, here are a few important links for you:

This was my coloured image before I trimmed it down and made the card:

And my close-ups:

Good Morning ProMarker lovers!

We have a fantastic prize up for grabs at Passion for Promarkers this week!

will be giving our lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice!

I have chosen your theme for the week.  I'd like you to use your 

My favourite colour is purple and one my favourite combos is purple & black.

This week I got to use a really fun image from our fantastic sponsor.  The image is called A Dunderton Abroad and I've coloured the image with Promarkers.  I also drew in the background for him.

Skin: Blush; Sunkissed Pink; Coral; Cinnamon
Moustache: Warm Greys 2 - 5
Black: Cool Greys 3 - 5; Black
Silver: Cool Greys 1 - 3
Bandanna & Shorts: Lilac; Violet; Aubergine
Purple: Orchid; Amethyst; Purple
Pink: Cocktail Pink; Carmine; Magenta
Suitcase Label: Blue Pearl; Pastel Blue
Shirt Leaves: Leaf Green; Grass; Pine
Sky: Sky Blue
Tree: Leaf Green; Grass Pine; Forest Green; Lush Green; Emerald; Holly; Sandstone; Caramel; Cocoa; Henna

So I decided to make my first Magic Slider Card.  I'm not sure I'll ever attempt another one, as it took me two full days and I'm not entirely thrilled with the results.  Here's the video tutorial I used, if you're interested.  I'm sure my frustration came from deciding I was going to have the slider come out sideways, which meant the longest side of my image.  I ended up having to add two brads to the original eyelet to pull the tag out, to keep the acetate in place.

I also needed to source acetate specifically for use with inkjet printers, which proved to be difficult and expensive!

My paper is from the Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Wonderland collection.  The sentiments are freebie clear stamps that came with a craft magazine.  The travel goodies are Little B.  I've also used a strip of dotted washi tape on the edge of the slider pocket and added some pearls.

Unfortunately I didn't take a pic of the image before I added the acetate, so these are all through the acetate.

Well, I hope you'll join us this week, showing us YOUR favourite colour combo!  

Remember to use your Winsor & Newton products (Promarkers; flex markers; tria markers; aqua markers or metallic markers) and we'd love you to mention which you've used.

Hi There Crafters!

Tuesday has rolled around again, and we're 37 weeks into the year!  The exciting news is that we have another ANYTHING GOES challenge starting at Digi Choosday today, and a super DISCOUNT CODE waiting for you, valid for 24 hours!

Probably the most rewarding card to make is one for a little person, and that's what the team are showing off this week.

I love using number shapes as my card base, when I make a card for a child.  I cut this number 2 on my Cameo, using the PN Kingdom Come Stencil font.  I doubled up the number to created the card base.

I've used a sweet little bear called Etty Friends from the Winston Bear Collection and coloured the image with markers.  I originally cut out the image using a rectangle die, but it took up far too much of my number base, so I cut out the image by hand instead.  

My papers are also from the Winston Bear Collection.  The cute sentiment is from the Lily Bug Love Collection.  I've used a Sizzix die to cut out the sentiment.

I've added teeny wooden ladybirds and Dress It Up flower buttons.

If you're itching to get shopping, you can use this easy link to get there:
