I is for Icy colours

Hi all, this weeks letter on the Alphabet challenge is I.......for icy colours.......this is my effort. I made the background of this card by making a small dolphin stencil and using a grey pencil to stencil the dolphins. I cut an oval of card and paper pricked freehand  design round that and in the corners of the card. I highlighted the paper pricking with silver pen. I drew the dolphins freehand onto different holographic card drew in the details and adhered them to the front.

Been scrapping!

Finally found time to do a bit more scrapping, so much for keeping up to date! These photos were taken (obviously) on New Years Day, when were staying down in Brighton, and went for a walk along the pier.

F is for flowers

Hi all, we are onto F again on over on the Alphabet challenge blog. Here is my F for flowers card. I used a purple card blank, and cut the edge with a border punch, and I used the same punch to edge a piece of pearlised paper to mount on the front, which I drew round with a gel pen. I made the large flowers from glittery paper, and cut the smaller ones from pale blue paper, and the leaves from green card. Details were then added with pens and dimensional paints.

Dragonfly Skinny

This week over on the Alphabet challenge blog, we are on D or dragonflies, I have made a skinny, using one of my own design dragonfly stamps. I have stamped the body onto illusion card, and made the wings using fantasy film. The background is decorated with my own design swirl stamps and accent beads. The edges were coloured with gold Adirondack dabber.
 I have also realised I have not put the last few challenges onto my blog, so here is my chocolate colours ATC. This was done using distress ink on the blank, the trees were drawn with black permanent marker, and the horse was then scraped away using a scribing tool, and coloured using a brush marker.

Sympathy card

Having recently received some bad news from a friend of mine, I had cause to make a sympathy card for her. It is a bit unusual for sympathy card, but I was quite happy with the result. I used some lovely black brocade card, silver border peel-offs and some lovely 3D butterfly stickers. The flowers are hand painted of course, using Liquid pearls and Pebeo volume touch paints. Small flat backed gems were added to the centres of the larger flowers.

Golden wedding card

Goodness it's ages since I have posted! I have today made  a 50th wedding anniversary card for a friend of mine. Unforunately the colour in the photo is really not good, it is actually a lot more gold than it looks, and the contrast panels are a fab burgundy card with gold foiling on it. 

Thanks for looking :)

Santa on a mountainbike!

Whilst making christmas cards this year, I had to make some for my guy to give to some of his mountain biking friends, so I thought it would be a bit different to design a card based on him on his mountain bike. I used a photo of him riding his bike and drew this piccy of him as Santa, delivering presents to the cycle shop that I think is his second home! :)
