Indian Warrior

Managed to have a littl play and make something just because I can today (well thats my opinion anyway). I'm not really good at making cards for boys and men, which is soo not good when you have three sons and two grandsons, but I just fell in love with this cute little Indian Warrior by Nellie Snellen, and have been waiting for a chance to ink him up.

he's been coloured with Copics, the papers are by Whiff of Joy which I have had for ages and totally forgot about! I am soo going to have to ban myself from bying any more papers or printing any till I have used some of my stash up!!!!!!

Gift Bag 2

Decided to have another go at a gift bag and didnt have quite so many disasters this time lol, bit dissappointed with the wings though had to use a new quickie glue and it really came out thick and fast, so glitter is not as delicate as I would have liked.
Image is from Lili of the Valley coloured with Copics

Flowers are Wild Orchid
Papers Pink Parfait Forever Friends
Ribbon coloured with copic pen

Left the back plain as soo much going on in front.

Gift Bag

Finally got around to using the gift bags that I got at Ally Pally this weekend, this is the first one that I tried and you so would not believe the amount of disasters that I had making it, by rights it should be in the bin, but I persevered and am now really pleased with how it turned out.

Coloured with Copics
Papers are called Isabelle by Sparky & Marie
Flowers are from Wild Orchid
Ribbon was white but I got the exact match by colouring with Spiced Marmalade distress inks then dipping it in water and drying with heat gun.
A bit of decoration on back and bobs your uncle done - wish it was that easy lol!

Am entering into the WOJ Challenge which is bingo I have gone for Punch/Flowers/Pearl

Rainbows - Make It Colourful


A new challenge starts today at the MIC Clubhouse - Todays Challenge is R A I N B O W S.

I soo loved the new images Zoes's just bought out I just had to have a little play with them you can find all the new images here at the  Make It Crafty store

I have used the three Mermaids and combined them with stamps from Chocolate Baroque, which by the way Zoe is quite happy for you to combine her images with other peoples but not all artists are so please be careful which images you put together!

And where is my Rainbow? Yep my mermaids are my interpretation of the theme! I am soo  looking forward to seeing what your interpretation is going to be!

I have triple embossed all the images which has made them look a bit washed out ummmm not a godd idea when using copic paper I guess!

Backgound done with China Blue distress inks and silver buff and added some seed beads
