Card For Sister

Good Afternoon everyone
i have been playing with Spectrum noir pens again
i printed off several mermaids images so i had them ready to colour
  i went  brown and gold  it’s taken me all morning to get this picture sorted
just don’t know what it is.... light seems totally wrong
anyway  i quite like this one


  added glass glitter to the mermaids tails to give that bit of  sparkle
i did do a colour chart but put it some where so good even i can't find it

Thursday card

Good Morning everyone
the weather is alittle hit and miss at the moment here in UK not sure if the sun will get through today but so far it’s dry
i can here the birds singing so all is good so far…
these new stamps have a continental feel to them from the new Sheena Douglass range that’s for sure
those  warm colours of the red roof tiles suggest sunshine  good food wine and company


i stamped out in versa fine smokey grey onto Neenah card stock
coloured in with Spectrum noir pens matted with core-dination and silver mirri
the backing paper is from Nitwits the sentiment i stamped using the big and juicy Spice ink pad
luckily it had similar colours to the topper, a few flat backed clear glass beads and  stripy ribbon
onto an 8x8” card blank
to finish off....
the colours i used in the topper are
FS1- FS2- FS3- TN3- TN4- TN5- CG1- CG2- CG3- TB1- TB2- GG1- GG2-  LV1 – IG3- BLENDER
alittle topper 
 i did last night  while watching TV,
the saturated canary Mermaid i took the image into scrapbook artist  removed the back ground so i could  overlap then flipped the image
coloured in with spectrum noir pens
a great topper for sisters or twins
spectrum noir colours are
TN1- TN2- FS1- FS6- BT1- BT3- GG2- LY1- LY3- GB6 - CT4- TN5 – Blender

New Sheena Douglass stamps

do you ever wish you were somewhere warm and sunny ?
i have been playing with some new Stamps that Sheena Douglass will be bringing to you soon
this one takes you to that hot sunny place 
where you could be sat  taking in the views sipping that chilled glass of wine listening to the birds singing
  i decided to water colour this one onto crafters companion water colour card
core-dination card with centrua pearl card for matting layer
the grape vine is a separate stamp  on the stamp sheet
i did some masking card candi to finish off
i know i could easily see myself sat in front of that cottage door on a warm summers evening
bit of a wish you were here moment 
with the weather here in UK being shocking of late

Whale of a Time

Good Morning all

you would not believe the hassle i have had trying to get a decent picture of this card
tried more than once to get true colours it was either too dark or too light 
camera and card nearly went through the window lol
but at long last here it is…

another Whimsy digi image  in spectrum noir pens onto Neenah  with core-dinations card
all from Crafters Companion 
the  backing paper is from  Nitwits 
there are  a limited amount of colours for this card
had fun doing it though.

here are the colours i have used
Blender- TB1- TB2- TB3- BGR1- BGR2- BGR3
I took the image into craft artist  to add the sentiment printed then coloured
something alittle different
thank you for popping by
