KITTY LOVE


 This beautiful image by Krista Smith is so perfect for a card for my daughter.  The image is called Cats, Coffee and Journals.  


I have coloured the image with Copics and cut it out to fit into the frame, which along with my paper and the sentiment tag, comes from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower Collection.  I didn't want to lose any more of the sunflower paper, so I decided to only add a little Offray ribbon bow and a few Bo Bunny enamel dots.

I've also added tiny nail art stickers to create the 'tattoo' on her arm.



Thanks so much for popping in for a look!

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #539: BOWS AND/OR PINK


Good Morning lovely crafters!


Our theme at The Paper Shelter this week is
BOWS AND/OR PINK


I've mixed two images for this Anniversary card: My Elvis Teddy Bear, and So Classy!

I've cropped So Classy! down, just leaving enough space to add this Elvis fan to the image.

I've coloured the images with Copics.

My papers are from the DCWV All Dressed Up paper pack.  I've added a strip of lace from my stash and an Offray ribbon.

I've used a Poppy Crafts die for the heart swirl, and added Little Birdie and I Am Roses flowers.







Up for grabs at The Paper Shelter this week is our usual fantastic prize!  Our winner will win a $30 store voucher if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your entry (you could choose the pre-coloured image, the black and white digi, or the digital paper that comes in the set), or 3 digis of your choice, if you've used another brand.  You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.

Thanks for popping in!

PASSION FOR MARKERS CHALLENGE #672: SKETCH

 

Good Morning colourists!  And welcome back to our fabulous colouring challenge!


This week Polkadoodles are sponsoring our challenge and offering 3 Digi images to our randomly chosen winner.



Our theme for the week is this fun sketch


I have used Sunshine Delight Coffee Winnie on my card.


I have coloured the image with Copics and used papers from the P13 Let Your Creativity Bloom paper pack.  I typed up the sentiment and used Echo Park enamel dots to match the sketch, and added one or two more.



I don't often use a sketch to guide my cards, but I must admit, it made this one quick and easy to complete.  To see more, pop over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the team have created.

ALSO...
We're having a DT call at Passion for Markers.  You can find all the details on the challenge blog, if you're interested.

The lace is 49 and Market and the ribbon is Offray.  I've added Prima flowers and Echo Park enamel dots.







Up for grabs at The Paper Shelter this week is our usual fantastic prize!  Our winner will win a $30 store voucher if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your entry (you could choose the pre-coloured image, the black and white digi, or the digital paper that comes in the set), or 3 digis of your choice, if you've used another brand.  You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.
