Once I'd finished the hedgie card (below) I still fancied crafting so I found a Tilda image that was already coloured in and was just begging to be used!
I teamed her with a pink oval and a gorgeous floral paper from the Forever Friends Pink Parfait pad, ribbon from my stash and flowers inked with a ink pads. I finished off with some pink gems from my stash for some bling and a stamped sentiment.
I just got these adorable PB hedgie images and thought they would be perfect for this, so I got colouring! I had a bit of a mind block while trying to find papers that worked, I finally settled on this one from a Forever Friends pad. I also added lace, a round sentiment, and some flowers!
I entered my first Challenge blog this week at Pear Tree Designs, we were given a sketch to follow and I really enjoyed it!
I decided to use some of my lovely 12x12 paper as the backing paper and embossed a pink panel to match. A Tilda image was coloured with my Promarkers to coordinate with the clours in the paper....I'm loving her blond hair!
I think I stuck really closely to the sketch....can't wait for the next sketch on Monday!
I had this image coloured in and I was desperate to use it, as it's so cute! After making the get well card, I sat down with my paper stash to have a play!
I've coloured Pirate Tilda in using Promarkers, then cut her out and mounted her on a Nestie label, inking the edges. I used My Minds Eye papers that were free with a card mag a while back....I love these papers, they are beautiful! Again I followed a sketch, I love using these as they really help with layout mind blank lol!
I made this card for my father in law's birthday this weekend...I find male cards quite hard to do at times, but I found this digi stamp at the Digistamp Boutique and thought it would be perfect for his birthday...and for future Fathers Day cards lol.
I coloured him with Promarkers, even giving him grey hair like FIL, and used some free papers that came with Making Cards magazine.
Well after a bit of deliberating, I've decided to set up a blog for my cardmaking.....I have been inspired by all the other fab blogs out there! This will be a little journal for myself, and to show my creations...maybe even the mishaps lol.
A little about me: I'm married with 2 girls and have tried many crafts over the years, including cross stitch, jewellery making (not good at this one lol), and now cardmaking! I've been making cards for just over a year and have also just discovered the joys of rubberstamping & colouring with Promarkers....another addiction!!!
I would appreciate any comments on my cards, as a newbie to cardmaking,I love the feedback.
I am a married stay at home mum who loves cardmaking, stamping and all things papercraft!!! I have recently discovered the joys of stamping and Promarkers and I am now addicted! I also have way too much stash but can't stop collecting more!!
