Himalayan Poppy


Well we are now in our summer months here in the UK.

So for the new challenge at the Classic Design challenge I have used a beautiful flower image.

It is from our sponsor this month which is Sheepski Designs
and this is one of their images called Peony.

Our theme is anything goes..



I know it's called Peony but I just saw a poppy and had to colour it like a Himalayan Blue Poppy. It's coloured using polychromo pencils. I kept it quite a simple design with just a dark blue frame. The sentiment is from Sweet Poppy stencils.

Totally tropical Toucan


What a busy day as it's the 1st of the month.

It's new challenge time at the Crafty Catz challenge.

Our sponsor is Sheepski designs and this is one of their images called Tropical.


I've coloured him with polychromo pencils. I wanted to keep him tropical looking so I've added a floral background paper. Then a couple of big fancy silk flowers and some die cut leaves. A birthday sentiment completes the design.

My little pony

 

It's the 1st of July so half the year is behind us, where did that time go.

So it's new challenge time at the Critter Crazy challenge.

As usual this is anything goes but must use an animal.



I seem to be having a thing about horses at the minute and there are so many cute images around to use.

This one has been coloured with polychromo pencils.

There is a wood effect paper in the background and the other plaid piece has been done using a Sweet Poppy Stencil called Plaid. It's mostly all monochrome but with just a little red added to his mane and harness.So I picked that up with a bit of check red ribbon.
