Here is what I made for you all.
How cute is this image??
I used the print and cut feature on my Cameo to print her out.  The papers are Bonnets and Bowties from Lili of the Valley and Nit Wits and were actually a freebie from one of the crafting mags!!  And yeap.... I have since bought the pad of them!!  The buttons are from That Craft Place and the ribbon and sentiment were just in my stash.
This is being sent to a special lady who is linked to the 'The Last Leg' page on FB.  Its her birthday, she is very poorly and her lovely husband asked for lots of cards to try and cheer her up.  I hope she likes it.

Ditzie Digi Designs Challenge

Its that time again... Ditzie Digi Designs challenge.
And as always our challenge is
and the prizes are
5 images 
2 papers
have done something completely different this time.
a mixed media canvas!
I have used two DDD images for this.
Mr Steam and
steampunk border.
I printed these on tissue paper and then used good old mod podge to stick them to the canvas once all the colours had dried.
The majority of what you see is available in That Craft Place.
I used distress stains, texture paste, a selection of different stencils and masks, bark, MDF shapes and guilding wax.  Pretty much the only thing you cant get from Lisa is the very tiny real watch metal cogs and the old watch face which I got from an ebay store.
I really enjoyed making this and stepping out of the box.

Digi Galore - Kraft challenge

Its challenge time at digi galore and this time we are asking you to use Kraft card in your project.
I must admit to having been a day late with getting this posted..... I totally lost track of days, but I have a card and here it its!!!
We have been lucky enough to be sponsored by Artbymiran and the winner will get to choose 3 gorgeous digital images from the etsy store.
I have chosen Blossom Breeze for my card.
I have coloured her using my beloved copics and teamed her up with 'New Leaf' papers from First Edition.  I have used Kraft card for all the matting and layering and also for some embellishments which I cut on my cameo.  The sentiment tag is from Whimsey Stamps and the flowers/gems are from Wild Orchid.

Looking forward to seeing you projects... pop on over to our blog for full rules and more inspiration from the fabulous DT.

Tattoo Girl

I am slowly getting back to the world of crafting even though my real world at home is completely upside down still!!  I can't wait for all the decorating and building to be finished!!  Anyway to relieve some stress I coloured up an image just for fun!  No design team work or anything.... just because!
And here she is...
This is tattoo girl by ArtbyMiran and I was lucky enough to win her in a naming competition a few weeks ago.
Due to my recent obsession with tattoos, this was the obvious choice of image for me.  She is gorgeous!
I have coloured her using my copics and this is the first time I have included B45 with my cool greys for the hair and I love the look it gives.  Will be using that more often from here on in!!
The tattoo paper and cut outs are from the silhouette stop and are cut on the cameo.  Perfect combination I thought!
I have kept this very simple to draw focus to the image and the colouring.

Ditzie Digi Design challenge blog launch!

Ditzie Digi Design
The time has arrived for us to launch and put into action our new challenge blog for Ditzie Digi Designs.
For those of you who haven't heard of this before, I am part of an exciting new venture with some fabulous artists to create digital images for you all to colour.
There are a range of different styles of drawing being done so there is something for everybody!  New images are being added all the time...... Check out the Etsy store to grab some of you own.
Our theme for this challenge is
and here is my inspiration card.
I have used an image by a very talented artist called Kelly Rhodes.
At the time of writing this post, this image isn't in the store but I bet she will be by the time this goes live!!! 
This is an 8x8 card to make the most of the colouring,  She is of course coloured with my brand spanking new copics.  The papers are just plain Kraft and hammered bronze card.  The numbers sheet is a section from a sheet of Graphic 45 'old curiosity shop' papers...... I thought the colours were perfect together.  The wings and cog are wooden cuts from Ditzie Designs and I cant get enough of them!!
Check out the challenge blog (link at the top of post) to see the full rules and what else the talented DT have been doing with a wide selection of images.
