Indian Dance!

Hi Everyone, a card I did for the sketch challenge at the Outlawz, but missed it!, anyhow, I thought I would show you what I did. The image is a digi stamp from Tiddly Inks, I love this image, she deserves to be richly dressed, but thought I would play her differently.  I followed the Outlawz sketch in Photoshop and coloured Aisha in PS too. I printed it out and layered it on navy card, added the cut out Aisha and the sentiment and added a Tonic die in the corner.

DSC September

It's time for the Monthly challenge at

the Theme is 

Anything with Wings

sponsored by  Sparkle n Sprinkle

Well what can I say about this Owl? I LOVE that he is a Knight Owl and was perfect for my Son's birthday, he would rather sleep in the day and be up all night. The stars and sentiment are also in the digi. 

I used a photo I had taken in the back garden of a full moon, it seemed a perfect background,  I duplicated the stars a few times and added the perfect sentiment that came in the package from Sparkle n Sprinkle, I printed it all out from PS and layered the grand Knight. To say that I am thrilled how this turned out would be an understatement, it is perfect for me in every way. Thank you SnS. I added a border around the background in PS, printed it out and layered the Owl, a bit of ultra fine sparkle and voila! except I added the sparkle AFTER the 3D gloss on his eyes and nose and feet and a little has caught on them, but I don't think it matters, things sparkle in the moonlight don't they? You can see it on the "real" card. My Son had a laugh at it and it's meaning, I added "I love you to the moon and back" on the inside, another of the sentiments included.

Another Lily

Hi Everyone, another card I made while my 'puter was poorly.

I used the Lily die by Sheena Douglas. This time I used water colour pencils to colour it and added it to the Scruffy Little Cat embossing folder background, I then added random "pearls" with my Perlen Pen.  I added strip of the background card to the front and curled a very fine strip of the card to go behind the flower. Another CAS card I suppose.

Window Blinds

Hi Everyone and also to my lovely new followers, I hope to keep you entertained with something different every few days.

Today I certainly have something different. I hope you won't be offended.

I needed a birthday card for a friend of 51 years, we have always had a great laugh the 4 of us, so usually send him a humorous birthday card. This year was no exception. I am a member of the Card making and Papercrafts with the Silhouette on Facebook where Marie Papadopoulou made a silhouette behind some window blinds, then a few others did something else with the blinds and then I saw this by Julie, well here is my interpretation on the theme, the image is from a font. 

I cut the blinds out of shiny black card with the image in matt black card, I added the background I had played with in PS and printed it out. The sentiment is one I saw on the web and it seemed to suit the image and our friend LOL. He is 74! I'm glad to say he laughed his head off.

Birthday card

Hi everyone, I had a FB post from my niece in China, they had gone out for a meal and she was enjoying it when she noticed "something" in her bowl.

Anyhow on to my post and what you are here for.

 I had a birthday card to make for one of my Great Niece's and I came across a sketch that I really like, so the design is of this sketch, I haven't entered a challenge for a while, so this one is for the Try Stamping or Not - on a Tuesday!

The image is a digi by coloring book pages. Isn't she lovely? The DP's and elements are by Dawn by Design, (The inside alpha is also from the kit.)  I paper pieced, coloured and added embossed "eleven" to the banner in PS . I added some Magic glitter to the gold spot border. The inside alpha is also from the kit.

Lazy Days

Hi Everyone, my DT post today is for Deedee's Digis who is sponsoring a challenge at Crafty Girlz the theme is Anything Goes with the Twist of Lazy Days.

Deedee has a few images I could have used for this challenge, but decided to go with this piggy 'cause he's enjoying his Lazy Day and also the perfect sentiment for him too. I used the ready coloured image this time and in PS I made a frame adding a DP and the sentiment, then added another DP to surround it. I made a palm tree and coconuts out of PS shapes, I printed it all, making 2 copies for the tree and the pig, I 3D'd the 2nd layers, adding 3D gloss to his eyes and trotters and sparkle to his drink, then added sparkle to the wave shapes too. I wouldn't mind sitting with him under the palm trees.

Basket of flowers

Hi Everyone, Deedee's Digis has a Digi of the Month challenge and today we have a reminder post that you can still enter this months challenge.

My offering is another basket from the free kit offered, the Seasonal Basket kit, the flowers are from the Grown with Love kit. Basket & Flowers coloured in PS. I followed the colours in teh background DP. It just goes to show, how different the effect can be, when using different kits and colouring the outline images in them, or if you don't have time there are ready coloured images included. The sentiment is also in the kit.

 DP's are by Summertime Designs
