A penguin called Fred

This is just so late but the dreaded winter bugs caught up with me.

This is my inspiration for the Challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.

Our sponsor is Jans Digi stamps and this is one of her images called Puttin on the Ritz.

I've coloured this little penguin with Polychromo pencils and added a bit of sparkle to his hat, but thats not easy to see on the photo.

I've die cut the sentiment and punched out some glittery hearts. Just a nice simple design.

Magic Paint

My inspiration for the challenge over at Colour Crazy Craft Challenge is here, well a few hours late.

Our sponsor this time is Dr Digi and this is one of their images called Dunderton Decorating Ltd.

I've coloured it with Polychromo pencils.

I have added a piece of hessian to the background and a few lovely little tool charms.

A great mans card and a fun image too. Please pop over and have a look at all the other lovely inspirational cards made by my team mates and maybe tempted to join in and show us your lovely colouring.

Cocoa Bath

I welcome to 2020 and my first post of the New Year. Plus first card for a new Design Team at Stinking Inkers. The theme for this month is Warm Up, so that's anything that will warm you up.

This little image is from The paper Shelter and is called Cocoa Jacuzzi. That would warm you up quite nicely. I have coloured it with Polychromo pencils.

 I have used ribbon, candy dots and die cut words to decorate. And a stamped sentiment to finish. Why not pop over and join in our fun challenge.

Biker Santa

I am so bad, this should have gone on a couple of weeks ago but something wet wrong and I forgot all about it. Looks like this fella won't be visiting me this year. I just had to put him on anyway in time for Christmas.

The image is from Dr Digi and he's called Harley |Claus. I've coloured hime with Polychromo pencils and then just added a die cut sentiment. I think he's so cool.

I've kept it really simple and I hope you like it.

Christmas Mix

I recently went to a fantastic weekend retreat with Sweet Poppy Stencils. I really enjoyed it.

This card is a result of the inspiring ideas from the fantastic Eileen Goodwin at that weekend. I love her work.

It's been done using Distress Oxide inks, gesso, Archival black ink, a white gell pen and Sweet Poppy Stencils. So much fun.

It's new challenge time at Crafting with an Attitude. Our sponsor this month is Lemon Shortbread and this is one of their images called Japanese Cranes. 

The colour inspiration for this came from a painting I saw and really liked.

I coloured it with Polychromo pencils. I have layered the image using navy blue card. Then cut the edge decoration from some oriental blue leafy papers. I have added an oriental charm and coin to the top left corner. The corners on the image have been die cut and the sentiment is a peeloff one. 

I am quite pleased with the outcome.
