Keeping it Pengu-in the Family

cypdt24thnov 001

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Baby It’s Cold Outside.We have the fabulous Delicious Doodles 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 thought I’d try something different with Penguin Family by Delicious Doodles.As the image is shaded I only added touches of cool blues in two shades of Copic Markers.After seeing demos using microbeads and double sided adhesive sheets I wanted to give this a go.It’s fun!!But you do have to watch these teensy little spheres don’t go everywhere 😉 I do have to point out that both image and sentiment show a lot clearer IRL.Think there is a bit of glare from my lamp bouncing back.

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 😦 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 😉 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 🙂

Krafty Baby Rudolf!

dscdt17thjune 001

 

At Digi Sketch Challenge we have another new challenge and the theme this fortnight is Christmas in June.We have the super Delicious Doodles as our sponsor.

It’s the lovely Margreet’s turn to host and here’s her fabby sketch :

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used the adorable Baby Rudolf by Delicious Doodles and coloured him with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.And he wouldn’t be Rudolf without his shiny nose would he?So 3D Crystal Lacquer has been applied to that!Because I’ve cut him out from another card blank so that he I was able to colour him on matching kraft card I’ve used a white gel pen on his eyes,nose and the underneath of his tail.His spots have been given more pop with a white Souffle pen. I’ve simply added a couple of strips of paper to a kraft card base.They have been cut using some decorative scissors.A length of ric rac  has been added over the reindeer paper and a cute red bell has been tied to that.The sentiment has been stamped onto the card base.I’m pleased how well the pens worked on this particular kraft and as the blanks are reasonably priced I will definitely be making more of these.The added bonus is I don’t have to use too much paper (more for me to stroke!) altho’ for posting purposes I would choose a flatter embellishment.Plus how could I not with this sweet little guy?! 🙂

1 Christmas card down.Many more to go.LOL 😀

Supplies :

Image : Baby Rudolf by Delicious Doodles
Sentiment : From a past freebie set from Cardmaking and Papercraft
Mediums : Copic Sketch and Ciao Markers,Sakura White Gelly Roll pen & White Souffle pen,3D Crystal Lacquer,Sepia Archival Ink

A wing and a mare

This week at Craft Your Passion the theme is Fairies & Fantasy.We have the fabulous Delicious Doodles as our sponsor.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used Mythical Pegasus from Delicious Doodles.PLEASE NOTE : I cannot take credit for the beautiful shading on this image.That must go to Teri the artist who created this incredible work of art – for that’s what it is!.The only contribution I made was a teeny bit of pencil shading under the hooves to ground the image.I simply printed it out and felt it really needed nothing else.I decided to try my hand at paper weaving a background and to keep a monochrome look to compliment the digi stamp.Being the mathematical genius I am (so totally not!) I’d cut the strips to 1/2″ and then tried to make it easier by lining the first horizontal piece in the middle.One big problem…I was then left with a 1/4″ to spare top and bottom,instead of being flush like the sides.So trying to make it look like it was really all part of the clever design plan I took my scissors and chopped the top and bottom pieces at angles.I punched a border and threaded it with some ribbon,carrying on the weaving theme,amd added some black gems to both the image and sentiment.

Supplies :

Image : Mystical Pegasus by Delicious Doodles
Sentiment : From Hero Arts Anytime Messages clear stamp set
Medium : Jet Black Archival Ink Pad
Papers & Card : DP Papermania Capsule Collection Bexley Black 8 x 8,Black Ultra Smooth card by Southfield

For my card I’ve used the beautiful Poppy by Delicious Doodles.She’s been coloured with FlexMarkers with black pearls added to the centre of each poppy.The pretty vintage papers were a freebie with last month’s issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine as is the chipboard square.I stamped a sentiment,from Polly & Walter A6 Clear Stamp Set by Willow Designs,onto it.I was going to leave it at that then decided to make some poppy-like flowers to tie in with the image.Well,as close as I could get anyway!A length of wine coloured ribbon was tied in a double bow to embellish.I made the card base from some leather textured card cut to form a 6″ x 4″  tent card then adhered the topper so that it will fit into a DL envelope 🙂
