fishing card

I have pulled a few cuts from WIMG & WC for this one
again another lovely boy sketch from Lily-Boo's newest release now available they really are lovely to colour & such good value as you can print them in any size you want as many times as you want!

I used a brown whisper pen to mark the grain detail on the sign then out lined the notice & sketched a plank to obscure the NO there are 2 metal brads in this as nails, I used several browns from promarkers to colour the sign which is from WIMG

the bullrush is from WC & matches the inside paper is dcwv

the fish are from WC too I coloured these so they were chubb like

the inside panel again from WC with the greeting from BB
don't forget there is a new challenge blog coming soon!

Lily-Boo's new collection revealed

I used the soccer solution cart to create the football frame I stretched it a little in DS & cut the bit of grass from this cart too, I coloured the image with letraset pro-markers my newest toy xx

So here we go as promised the finished
card for Lily-boo's
this wonderful selection will be available from today, Sunday
don't forget to check out the new challenge blog just for Lily-Boo's for a chance to win some smashing downloads.

SK8ER BOY another Lily-Boo's

Another fab image from the new collection, I used SU stamps for the back ground, this is an A4 bit of card folded in half, the backing for the title is from Indie solution cart & the title has been welded in DS using hello kitty font cart the corners were punched with a Xcut corner punch. you can click on any image for a close up detail shot

I popped the title for dimension

I used promarkers for the colouring

the inside greeting is usingseveral fonts from hello kitty again & the wicked is from Indie art, then mounted on to a ripped bit of SU black card

Challenge #11 Passion for Pro-Markers

well I have just started using pro markers & I have to say I LOVE them! my friend Liz from cricut MB introduced me to passion for pro markers site
I used my forthcoming Birthday money a few weeks ago as I was in my local craft shop & decided to buy a few packs & Mum had already given me my budget so knew what I had to spend, I spent that evening colouring & am hooked I should'nt of really as my Birthday is not til this wednesday

here is my take on this weeks sketch I masked the bottom layer & used SU roller stamp alphabets as it went so well with the Lily-boo's download, I love Sam's designs they are such a joy to colour, the blue block paper is DCWV I think

I cut leters out in hello kitty font for the flower placement W2G for way to go i coloured these in lime green, Cyan & yellow then I popped these for dimension thought this would make an excellent graduation card etc
this is a top tie card with hot pink satin ribbon & lime organza to secure
computer generated sentiment, I have 35 pens so far & I ordered another 15 last night to treat myself so far I am keeping them in old VHS boxes but already my blues are bustin out!

Lily-Boo's Garden Ovals

This is a little bigger than 8x8 & I
followed the polkadoodles sketch from last week
I had designed the cut using DS but was too busy to get it done
in time for the deadline, I have used funky hand minty madness
stripey paper for the backing & Lily-Boo's for the main picture
this image is from collection 13 Garden Ovals

behind each of the doors is it's your day cut from WC in gold

I just love this wedding confetti I picked up from the states
finished them with a gem on each

I coloured the picture with letraset pens
