PollyCraft Monday Challenge

I just adore the Pollycraft stamps (I haven't tried any downloads yet but I am sure they are just as wonderful) This is a stamp from the Woodland Elves collection and she is called Serenity I have coloured her with copics ( E00, R20, R05, E35, B12, E29, G05, Y08) and Sakura pens and water colour pencils, papers are Fairest Of Them All Royal Procession by Imaginisce a few prima flowers and some brads and of course my happy birthday peeloff

I have tried to follow Lindseys Sketch over on the Pollycraft Monday Challenge Blog - its not quite right but I hope it meets the guidelines :-)
Hope you've had a great weekend

Spring Time ATC for Tilda & Friends ATC Challange

Have struggled again with my health this week but managed to complete this ATC for the Tilda and Friends challenge blog where the theme this week is Spring Time you can use any image as long as its cute and you make the atc standard size (3 1/2" x 2 1/2") - well i think this is a very cute image its Sarah Kays Country Girl and i have coloured her with a mixture of water colour pencils and whisper pens and the sentiment is a coloured peeloff telling us 'Its Spring' - this is my 3rd attempt as i tried all sorts of backgrounds and edges but decided i liked this one best! I hope you think she is cute too Hope you have a great weekend x Thanks for stopping by x

A quick catch up

The weather here in my part of the UK has been very sunny and warm, spring is definitely on its way the daffodils are out and so i made my 1st Easter card for the year a very simple design using a decoupaged image I am sorry I am useless at taking photos of my cards so thought i would scan this one and its turned out just as bad!

I can't believe how quickly the past week has gone, I have been a bit poorly so not managed to take part in any challenges (other then for my craft forum (Craftyus)) and thought i better post a message here so you know i haven't disappeared

This was for a combined colour and sketch challenge with the colours being Pink and Brown this card is A4 folded in half covered with cappachino brazzill card and pink marshmellow card which i CB embossed and then used a image of Tilda and bench coloured with water colour pencils added some PM brads and prima flowers a couple of small tags with a happy birthday peeloff sentiment

Then also made this atc using the same sketch and colours and left over scraps :-) (this Tilda is coloured with copics so she's a bit brighter

Thanks for stopping by :-)

Copics Colour Challenge

Was looking around to find some copics instructions and found The Copics Colour Challenge Blog

Its a fairly simple challenge you can make whatever using whatever as long as you use copics as your medium You can find the details here - you can follow the challenge even if you don't have all three colours, this weeks colours are

R05 - Salmon Red

B02 - Robin's Egg Blue

YG23 - New Leaf

Well as I was still in an ATC mood, I checked and luckily had all 3 colours so I decided to use my new magnolia stamp 'Stylish Tilda' (which came from The Glitter Pot ) and created this atc which i thought i would enter, used my oval nestabilities and a few sparkly stickers and of course copics (E00, R20, E35, R05, B02, YG23 + 0)

Hope you have had a good Monday

Thanks for looking :-)

Becky is this months host on our craft forum and the atc theme was Tags

These are made using the free papers included with Januarys Making Cards Magazine - the flowers on the tags are twisted pyramids - photography not that great but they are a lovely lilac and yellow with a purple base

Finally got round to playing with my new copic ciao - i can see why everyone raves about them they are so vibrant and easy to use - i think i would upgrade to the copics sketch (when i win the lottery hehe) Used the lovely Magnolia Tilda with sunflowers stamp (she had to lose her legs and shoes though) copics used were E00, E11, R20, E35, B32,Y17,YG06 also used a couple of whisper pens and a gel pen for her hair bow!Thanks for looking

Hope you have all had a good weekend :-)
