For my card I’ve used the delightful Strawberry Fairy from Digi Doodle Shop.She’s been coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended out with low odour oils thinners using paper stumps.I’ve stamped a greeting at the top.Both her wings and the stars either side of the words have had Frosted Lace Stickles applied to them.For the background piece I passed some green vellum through my Big Shot using a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.I’ve added some tiny gems to the corners where they’ve been punched and tied some delicate looking white organza ribbon (a little like fairies wings) through the vellum.

I’ve used Heart Felt Roses from Digi Doodle Shop  for my card.I’ve coloured it with ProMarkers.I was very brave and cut out the middle using a craft knife and some of the small flowers have been cut out and layered with Glue Gel.I printed the sentiment onto vellum and quickly heat embossed it before the ink dried then hand cut it into a banner.I gave a lacy feel to the papers with a punch before adding some real lace and a flower/rossette  with a heart shaped brad in the centre.

This is for my son’s teacher who’s getting married this half term.

I chose to work with the super adorable Louis & Clarie from Digi Doodle Shop.They’ve been coloured with ProMarkers and Frosted Lace Stickles has been added to Clarie’s wings.I’ve kept the card to a minimum taking the colours from the paper to use in the image.I wanted to let the image really take over the card to show how gorgeous it is.The flower,which has Frosted Lace Stickles in the centre,and border on the right are die cuts from the paper pack.The ribbon is actually a Christmas one but I loved so much and thought it toned in well with the colours on the card.

I’m going to save this for my DD2’s birthday later this year.

I’ve used the  pretty Hydrangea image from Digi Doodle Shop for my card. Printed onto water colour paper and coloured using Distress Inks.I’ve also used a little Distress Ink applied with Cut ‘n’ Dry Foam on the edges of the image and card base.The Prima Hydrangeas were white but they’ve been dyed with Distress Inks to match.Rather than a brad or gem I decided to use a recent purchase of stamens to fill the middles.Once the wires were trimmed at the back I applied some Pinflair Glue Gel to keep them in place.This also adhered them to the card.

A ‘mice’ cup of tea

For my card I’ve used the totally adorable Mouse In Tea Cup (Cecil) and coloured him with ProMarkers with added white gel pen highlights.To add a little shading under and on the cup I used the Tea Green ProMarker and Blender.I find this gives a softer more subtle colour than using a grey. For a little extra shine I went over the tea cup with a glaze pen.Here’s a close up to show the detail :

I actually tuned the sketch on it’s side so I could incorperate the eyelets onto the edge of the image piece.I chose a gingham background and lacy edged dies to got with the country feel of the image.

Run rabbit,run!

At Digi Doodle Shop’s Best the challenge is Anything Goes.Play along to be in for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop!You could even be in the running to join us as GDT for a month.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s gorgeous work while you’re there.

Why not take advantage of the last few days of this months offers.There are lots of beautiful digi stamps to choose from.

I’ve used The End from Digi Doodle Shop for my card.There are so many uses for this but thought it would make  a great leaving card.I’ve printed the image directly onto a kraft card base.The sentiment is one I computer generated and I made the template for this on MyVerse Editor Plus so I could print it all in one.This is something I’m exploring more and really getting into.I’ve coloured with Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils,my new favourite toys.This is what I had in mind when I bought these but this is the first time I used them like this.After blending a little of the colour over the grass and bunny I went back and used them to create more texture.While I was waiting for the fixative to dry I punched out a border and added some natural raffia,for a rustic feel,and topped this with a Prima flower with a button centre.I tied a very fine piece of raffia,which I managed to peel away,through this.

Supplies :
Image : The End from Digi Doodle Shop
Sentiment : Created by me!
Mediums : Koh-I-Noor Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils,Winsor and Newton Artist’s Fixative
