Wednesday Words

Today I'm sharing a card I created for the challenge at Inkspirational where the word prompt is FACE.

This had me reaching immediately for the Abstract Beauty stamp set from Funky Fossil.
I stamped and heat embossed the image first and then placed the Funky Fossil Watercolour Lines stencil over. I used different shades of skin coloured inks to reflect the diversity of life.
I finished off the card with a sentient from the same stamp set and matted it onto a plain white card base.

Inks: Kaleidacolor, Cappuccino Delight; Versafine Clair, nocturne; Memento, angel pink; SU, crumb cake

Thanks so much for looking today, it's been fun to have you drop by.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

Tuesday Talk

Today I'm playing along with the Twelve Days of Christmas Challenge at CAS Christmas.

Now I have seen commercially produced cards that have all of the elements from the Twelves Days of Christmas song, but fortunately this was not expected for this challenge.

I went with the two turtle doves verse and some added music notes to reflect the inspiration's origin from a song. Hoping this will be acceptable!

Stamps: Lawn Fawn, Winter Sparrows (I'm using them as turtle doves!)
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Copic, E000, E00, R27, R29, G28; Wink of Stellas clear; Sakura gelly roll white

Huge thanks for looking at my blog today, I'm always pleased to have your company for a while.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

Monday Moment

Today I'm sharing a card I created for the challenge at Time Out.

Here's how the quote inspired me:
I started by stamping the Uniko Background Blocks Scattered Hearts so that they spilled off the left hand side of the card. I used a Kaleidacolor ink pad. 
Next I stamped and hand cut the dancing lady from CASual Fridays and popped her up on foam pads above a sentiment from the same set.

Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks, Scattered Hearts; CASual Fridays, Tutu
Ink: Kaleidacolor, berry blaze; Versafine clair, nocturne

I'm so pleased you stopped by my blog today, thanks so much.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

Sunday Slot

Today I'm sharing a card I created for the Snow Is Falling challenge at Christmas Kickstart.

Here's my card:

I started by printing the LOTV digi Polar and then inked through the base of the Snowglobe stencil from Funky Fossil. I added a little shading to the bear with Copic pens. After that was done I placed the main snowglobe in place and inked through with three colours avoiding the bear. 

Next I placed the Snow Storm stencil over and inked through in white. This is frustratingly not showing up at all well in my photos, but it looks very effective in real life. I finally added some small stamped snowflakes and a greeting from the new Funky Fossil Christmas Characters stamp set.

Stamps: LOTV, Polar digi; Funky Fossil, Christmas Characters
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black, London fog, summer sky, angel pink; SU, whisper white
Stencils: Funky Fossil, Snow Storm & Snow Globe
Pens: Copic, C00, C0, C1, C3

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really value your time and am delighted you spent some of it looking at my blog.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

Saturday Spot

Today I'm sharing a card I created using the colours from CAS Colours & Sketches.

And as I'm still in Christmas in July mode it's a Christmas card - yes I know it's August but my lockdown brain is on go slow!

This is such a simple card to create and indulged my love for a spot of colouring and Polkadoodle images. This is the North Pole stamp set - isn't he just adorable! 

The most difficult bit about this card was deciding which of my Copic pens matched the given colours the best. I had to mix a pink and brown to achieve the terracota, but I think it looks ok.

Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Copic, G28, R20, R21, E15, R24, C00, C0, C1,C3; Wink of Stella clear; Sakura white gelly roll

Huge thanks for dropping by today, I really appreciate it.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

Friday Focus

Today I'm sharing a card I created using a Polkadoodles digi stamp as my starting point. I'm entering it into their digi choosday challenge.

I've used the gorgeous Ula Be-a-Mermaid for my card:

This is the second time I've coloured her up, but I know it's not going to be the last time because I just adore her! HERE's a link to my first card made with her. I created a background using stencils from Funky Fossil onto green card. Then I cut her out and popped her up onto foam pads.

I finished off the card with a die cut happy, a birthday banner and a sprinkle of clear gems.

Stamps: Polkadoodles, Ula Be- a- mermaid; Lawn Fawn, happy happy happy 
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, wilted violet, peacock feathers, salty ocean
Stencils: Funky Fossil, Under The Sea, Beach Life, Sea Foam
Colours: Copic, BG11, BG32, BG34, B02, B04, V12, V15, V17, E000, E00, RV00, RV04
Dies: Lawn Fawn, happy happy happy; MFT Die-namics, stitched fishtail flags

Thanks so much for you time today, I'm so pleased you found my blog.

Stay safe and keep crafting!
