I can’t take all the credit for this card.I had a lot of help from my DS2 especially with the colouring.After showing him how to blend Polychromos pencils on the top of Emo Cowboy¬†by Just Some Lines’¬†¬†hat he did it by himself,well with just a little¬†interference¬†guidance from me ūüôā He picked it it up so quickly and was pleased with the results.For the rest of the card we picked out these cowboy themed papers and some corrugated card.The horseshoe was cut from one of the papers and some brads were added to it.We also decorated the rest of the card with a few more.The sentiment came from a set that was a magazine freebie,trimmed into a banner shape.

Meet the sweet Sunshine Gal¬†by Delicious Doodles.She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao & Sketch Markers.A little white Souffle pen has been added to the ice cream.I did coat the lenses of her sunglasses with 3D Crystal Lacquer but it hasn’t done the courtesy to show up ūüė¶ To compliment her bright colours I dug out these tropical papers from my stash along with some self-adhesive cork.As you can probably see I’ve done a fair amount of tearing here ūüėČ Including the rolled roses.After punching two sizes of circles I then tore round the spirals and for the leaves are just freehand tearing.Edges have been distressed to keep in with the look.A couple of pearl topped pins and some paper twine complete the card ūüôā

An Englishman’s home is his Mushroom Castle!

cypdt30thdec

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Something New.We have the fabulous The Paper Shelter  as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I’ve decide to go with a New Home theme using Mushroom Castle by The Paper Shelter,as I’m being very good about my stash diet ūüėĬ†I’ve printed the coloured version of the image (you get 1 outline and coloured digi stamp included) directly onto ¬†a kraft card blank using a verse editor CD-rom.The sky and clouds behind have been coloured by me with Polychromos pencils,blending the sky using low odour oils thinners and a blending stump for a softer look.A sentiment has simply been added by die cutting self adhesive canvas applied to a length of baker’s twine,looped around some brads and adhered into place.A couple of jump rings allow the key charm to dangle from the middle brad to finish.Quite a simple card as I’m hoping the postage won’t be too expensive to send this to one of my old neighbours who is waiting for her new house to be finished ūüôā

Supplies :

Image : Mushroom Castle by The Paper Shelter
Sentiment : Hand stamped with an alphabet from Crafter’s Companion 3 Birds Boxed Stamp Set 
Mediums : Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils,Low Odour Oils Thinners,Jet Black Archival Ink

Don’t Lose Your Head!

cypdt25thnov

At¬†Craft Your¬†Passion¬†this week the challenge is Thanksgiving/Give Thanks!We have the fabulous The Sugar Kissed Cottage¬†as our¬†sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don‚Äôt forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I decided to watercolour this quaint¬†Boy Feeding Turkey ¬†by¬†The Sugar Kissed Cottage¬†in just brown tones to give a more vintage feel.But for some reason when it came to painting the turkey some of the printer ink bled a little and seeped a couple of different colours into the mix.Ah well,I don’t mind.I think it adds quite a nice effect to the bird ūüôā Once dry I applied Distress Ink around the edges to add a little more olde worlde charm.I carried this through to the delightful backing papers.I wrapped a length of some cotton twill tape that originally bound together a pack of tea towels around the panel then overlayed with some baker’s twine.I die cut a pair of buttons and a couple of swirls (trimmed down) out of cork sheet.I think this creates an interesting texture along with extra whimsy.I’m not sure about the boy’s true intentions of feeding the turkey ūüėČ But they do look as if they have a good bond.Maybe he’s saved him from a fate worse than the dinner table!And so out of this and my odd sense of humour the sentiment was borne!!

Supplies :

Falling for Autumn

cypdt16thseptBarry16thsept 001

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Autumn/Fall Colours.We have the fabulous Stamp Fairy as our sponsors too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I couldn’t resist making 2 cards with the adorable ¬†Molly Throughout the Year September and Barry Throughout the Year 9¬†by Stamp Fairy¬†.They’ve both been coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.The papers on the Molly one are actually supposed to be Summer ones but they say Autumn more to me – especially when teamed with the orange and brown card stock ūüėČ The embellishment is made up of a wooden flower coloured with Copics,a gem added to the centre,then a few of the leftovers from the border die tucked under the edges.So on to Barry ūüôā I coloured him in a dotty fashion to create a little fuzziness and decided to display him on a shaped easel card (not made one in a while).I’ve inked around the edges to give more depth to the whole card.Some texture has been added with some paper raffia and die cut cork leaves.I’m always on the lookout for interesting stuff to bring dimension to my cards – and then never use it!!So I took the opportunity this time.I’ve used a button as the stopper and the sentiment is a freebie from Netty’s Cards.I love making cards in Autumn colours and luckily I get the chance as 3 of my 4 children have Autumn Birthdays!The top card is for my DD2 and the bottom one is for my DS2 ūüôā

For ¬†my card I’ve used the totally sweet¬†Cherry Fairy by A Day For Daisies¬†and coloured her with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers,adding some gloss to the cherries.The pretty papers were a freebie from Papercraft Inspirations magazine.After adhering ¬†them to the kraft base I hand stitched ¬†along the seams and wrapped some lace around both the ¬†top and bottom edges.The sentiment was stamped onto some self adhesive fabric paper.I love the translucency it gives allowing a glimpse of the papers beneath.I layered up a paper flower,a jute twine threaded chipboard button and a couple of pearl topped pins to create the embellishment in the corner.
