White Right


I have not put anything on here for a few weeks as I have been on a lovely holiday, but it's time to get back to my cards.

Welcome back to the current challenge from Graph'It Markers. The theme this time is
Crisp and White.

I have used a lovely image from Aurora Wings and of 
course it has been coloured with my Graph'It Markers. I have kept quite a lot of the image white and the background and flowers too.


I have just added a little colour of blue highlights and carried that on with the feathers and embossed layer. I hope you like this and pop over for some more lovely inspiration from my team members and possibly join in to have a chance at winning a lovely prize.

Christmas Past


This was a card I made just before Christmas but I went away for Christmas this year so I will share it with you now. It was sadly my last card as part of the DT for Through the Craft Room Door, a short lived membership due to changes than have taken a lot of my spare time.


I've coloured him with Polychromos pencils and added some 3d snow past.


It also includes a sheet of Kanban Patterned card, die cut snowflakes and a dotty ribbon and bow.
A very cute image from The Stamping Boutique.

Holly Fairy


It's the last challenge of 2014 at the Graph'it Markers challenge and we have a nice easy theme of
Winter Wishes.
I have used an Aurora Wings image Holly Fairy, so cute and I have coloured her in with my Graph'it Markers. All the layers have been cut out using my Woodware paper trimmer, that can use different blades, using the scalloped blade some cut with the scallop in and some out. I think that makes it a bit more interesting to use.


I have die cut the holly leaves and used gems for the berries. The Happy Christmas greeting is die cut. Then a bit of 3D snow added to the fur trim on her jacket. 

Happy Christmas to you all x x

Pretty Miss India


Welcome to the last Challenge at the Crafting Cafe and the theme is 
Your favourite things of 2014.

I've used 2 or 3 of my favourite things on this card so it was quite fun to do.


Firstly I have coloured in the image with my polychromos pencils. Although I have had them for quite a while I have only relly got back to using them this year and I have really enjoyed that. The image is a Besties.


Some of my favourite colours are oranges and golds, warm autumn colours I have used for the background.


Then some very pretty embelishments. A punched border in gold, a tassled brocade trim, some sequined shapes and a lovely bow with a metal flower in the centre. They looked very Indian type decoration and perfect to complete this card. I hope you like it too.

There are die cut leaves and hearts, also I have die cut the image and layer.

Africa


It's time for a new challenge at Through the Craft Room Door and this is my project. The image is from Little Claire one of our sponsors for this week.


For the background I have used Bo Bunny Zebra patterned paper and the image has been die cut with a Creative Expressions frame die.


I have then die cut lots of leaves and grasses using dies from Memory box, Marianne, 
I think it makes quite a striking card in black and white. 
It's always Anything Goes for the TTCRD challenge so please join in and you may win a nice prize.
