Birthday wishes...

Good morning folks, and another card from me...

This time I have used my ebrush to create the background and to shade the flowers and leaves.  I first die cut the flowers and then sprayed them using Spectrum Noir Markers, I did the same with the leaves.  I then die cut the overlays and glued them on top.  I masked off a section of the card and sprayed the top section with a matching colour.  I layered the flowers on to the card.  I doodled the edges as normal.  I thought it looked a bit bare so did some arty type splashes with Spectrum Aqua pens and then added some sequins and gems. 
Hope you likey!

Tiddly Inks DT Call - Hugs and Fishes

Howdy folks, I hope you are well today.
So I have been swithering about this for a few days and decided to go for it, I am entering the
DT Call over at Tiddly Inks.
So I have seen lots of cool shaker cards lately and when I saw this cute little image I thought it would be perfect for making into a shaker card. I have used "Wryn Just Keep Swimming" and coloured her with Spectrum Noir markers and then cut her out. I cut a square and die cut a circle for my shaker, I then die cut a scallop circle to frame the circle as it was a bit plain.  I doodled around the edges of the square and then fixed a piece of acetate to the back.
for the inside, I used my Spectrum Aqua pens to make a wash of colour and then added some splashes of water to make it a bit sea like. I added some glitter, seed beads, sequins and some extra fish which I printed off.
I then gave Wryn the 3D look and fixed her to the front of the shaker to make it look like she is swimming through that little hole!
I added some extra splashes of colour, sequins, pearls and gems to the front.

Some snowmen...

Good evening unexpected post from me this evening...I completely forgot to post this the other day!

I am sharing my card for the LOTV Design Collective.

A wee sneaky peek at one of the new sets of Christmas stamps that will be know I can't resist a snowman!!

I made it quite plain and simple, I coloured the stamped images with Spectrum Noir markers, I cut out each of the images and layered them onto a die cut scallop circle. I cut a square panel and embossed with snowflakes, I also punched some extra snowflakes and 3D them onto the card and glittered them up...oh yes doodled the edge too!

You are my sunshine...

Well hello everybody....I am getting back on track after my manic few months at work.  So this is a set I have been eying up for a bit and saw a card similar on Pinterest so I knew I just had to buy the set and here's my version...
The dies are from Wplus9 called sunshine layers and they have a matching stamp set...they are just so cute!  I used my ebrush and spectrum noir pens to colour the word, the sun and the outline of the clouds...oh I love spray painting!!

Little Umbrella

Hi everybody, something a bit different to share with you, I have decided to follow Laine's tutorial over on the Spectrum Noir blog on how to colour sun kissed skin.

Laine's colouring and instructions are fab so you can't go wrong.

For this card I have used Little Umbrella from Mo Manning which I coloured with Spectrum Noir Marker pens.

I followed Laine's tutorial, which you can find here on the Spectrum Noir blog.

first I coloured all the skin with FS2, then added FS4,TN2, TN4 and FS6, making it darker where there is shade and to the parts of the skin that would get a bit sun kissed.

Gradually build up the layers of colour until your image is sun kissed, pop over to the Spectrum Noir blog to check out Laine's tutorial as she has step by step instructions.

There's lots of other fab tutorials so why don't you check them out too on the Spectrum Noir blog.
pens used: FS2, FS4, FS6, TN2, TN4, OR1,OR2, CG2, DG3, GB8. GB10, GT1, GT2, BT7, IB3.

Thanks a bunch

Howdy folks, well I have been a bad blogger lately, working extra hours at work and getting everything ready to handover and then looking for a new job....anyway I now have more time on my hands so getting all caught up.
So today's card I am quite pleased with...I wanted to make something quite quick using my new ebrush and here it is.  so I first of all cut a piece of white card to size, then I sprayed 3 colours together, blending as much as I could.  I die cut the scribbled roses and stitched them in place, I also added some stitching around the edges too.  I then stamped the sentiment and using sticky fixers, layered it to the middle of the card.  to finish I added some pearls and gems.
pens used: BP6, OR3 and GT4.
