Masculine @ Aud Sentiments

Hello again guys,

Finally getting all caught up after a week away in Sweden at a rock festival. Back to work today (I needed to take a few extra days just to get everything sorted, including the menagerie, as I am working the bank holiday weekend).

Doctor Digi
Anyway, here is my creation for our new challenge - Masculine - at Aud Sentiments. The sponsor for this challenge is Dr Digi, and I used my Naptime sentiment sheet as I think they are perfect for a masculine card.

I used the back of one of my heavily patterned cards, so it can be used as a postcard, for display purposes. I fussy cut the sentiment of choice from the sheet and layered it onto some skull patterned paper (from Papercraft magazine). I finished the card by layering two stripes of washi tape on top of each other. A nice and simple card design.

Products used:

Die - X-cut scalloped circles nesting dies
Image - Naptime sentiment sheet
Paper - Papercraft Inspirations magazine

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
catchthebug - Anything Goes
ThePaperPlayers #455 CAS for kids

Thanks for looking,

Anything Goes @ I Love Promarkers

Our new challenge at I Love Promarkers does not have an optional theme this time. We are sponsored by the lovely IkesArt, and I have used Great Tit on a pine cone.

I used one of my patterned base cards to add interest. I then die-cut the image using a stitched square before colouring with promarkers. Finally I die-cut some pine cones and branches using some glitter, patterned, linen paper from my scrap box.

Products used:

Promarkers - Icicle, Polar Blue, Marine, Ivory, Gold, Burnt Sienna, Wild Cranberry, Ice Grey 4.

Dies - M&C stitched square nesting dies
         - Marianne Creatables - pine cones

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

As many of you will already be aware I shaved my hair to donate it to the Princess Trust. I thought you might like to see Chucky's reaction when he saw me for the first time afterwards.

Fairy garden

Hi guys,

Just catching up after my week away in Sweden! I decided to make myself a new card/postcard to be precise. I had printed the postcards out before I went away, as I needed to use one for my DT creation for while I was away. They are a vintage style postcard design of flowers, and so I thought this one would work really well with my fairy die-cuts.

I used the one with a purple background, as I feel this is more suited for a fairy theme, and the flowers are down the side, so she looks like she has just exited from among them and is looking towards the stamp area.

Products used:

Digital image - Vintage cardmaking CD-Rom received as a gift from my mum
Dies - Fairy die set that came free with a magazine (unable to remember which one)
Card - black/maroon double sided from scrap box

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

intaas #65 Flowers
CMM #239 It's a bugs life
TIOT - In my garden there is...a fairy living among the flowers and calling in the dragonflies.
AYLI - Fav colour combo - I really like using black and purple together as they are such rich tones

Thanks for looking - now to go and sort some stuff in the garden, and get the next load of washing in the machine :)

Animals @ Aud Sentiments

It is time for a new challenge over at Aud Sentiments - with a theme of Animals. We are sponsored by Digi Doodle Studios, and I have used Party Pups.

Anything Goes @ Creative Moments

We also have a new challenge starting over at Creative Moments. Our theme is always anything goes, and here is what I have created:

I used Garden 9, from one of our sponsors - Morgan's Art World. I coloured the image with promarkers and then die-cut with the X-cut nesting oval dies. I then die-cut the next oval up from purple polka dot metallic card, and used a border from a hunkydory topper set to surround the flowers. Finally I added a bow and a button, leaving space to add a sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
SimplyCreateToo #152 Anything Goes
ColorDare #354 Tic-Tac-Toe (Bottom line)
AYLI - Fav Flower - I have chosen a favourite flower type, which is open-petalled flowers, as they are fun to colour, and good for the bees when they are real :)

Birthday Alpaca

Hi guys,

We have a new challenge that started today at I Love Promarkers, with the optional theme of Birthdays (A nice easy one for everybody). Our sponsor is  Dr Digi'sHouse Of Stamps.

I have used Alice the Alpaca for my card:

I coloured the image using promarkers in cyan, Bluebell, Fuchsia Pink and Rose Pink. I then fussy cut the image and layered onto a patterned paper. I believe the sentiment is a Dr Digi one also.
