Sketch Saturday Challenge..Crafty Sentiments Designs

Hiya..for today's challenge card ,I have coloured the little girl in using Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card..The background is coloured with pastel chalks to give a very soft effect..The card I used for mounting is from Hunky Dory in a beautiful soft green,I used this throughout the card.The papers are from Docrafts Painted Blooms paper pad ,this has some lovely papers in,this one is actually satin finished and looks stunning in real ,the strip however is just matt and adds a different texture..The sentiment is cut off some card I brought from Kanban last year and is white and gold embossed onto craft card,as there are lines of words on it this was just a quick easy addition ,and it really stands out too ..To finish I added three deep red roses to the bottom of the left corner of the image ,they pick up the red from the image and from the paper ..Remember it does not have to be exactly the same as the sketch when you visit the challenge blog you will see how the other girls have interpreted it ,you can show a bit of you own artistic flair ,after all if we did exactly the same it would make us so boring lol..Imagine everyone being able to make cards like mine lol!.. so out of the box sometimes I scare myself ha! ha!..But it's all about the love of doing it ..

Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Reminder

Hiya..for this card I coloured the image in with my Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card,I then fussy cut around it leaving a small white line to help it pop off the card..I have used black card for matting this one ..The background paper is from a tonic pad called Folksy Florals and the beautifully foil embossed craft card is from Kanban I purchased from C&C last year..You can see how nice it is on the center picture..After gluing the backing papers onto the card base I then added the gold panel with 3D glue to give a bit of depth,Then I added a small black piece of card I did a wiggle line around with the 3D glue to lift that up and finally added the mouse with the same glue,it helps to give the card  depth and a bit of movement..I kept it simple by adding a few black gens to opposite corners ..This can then be given to a boy or girl even though the bike and hat is blue it is a nice neutral card..and I think the cool mouse would be fun for either..Thank you for popping by :)xx

New Release at Sasayaki Glitter

I have coloured this super cute Turtle Couple with my Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card,Then I mounted it onto Craft card as I did the lovely papers ,these are from a pad I got from C&C a while ago as their members freebie , it's by THE PAPER BOUTIQUE and is called Rasberry Ripple..lovely 8x8 papers in ice cream colours yummy lol! ..I used some flower dies from China and hand coloured them leaving the center one white for contrast, added them to the card with 3D glue,I then added the last few white flowers and a few faux pearl gems to the one side and to the one corner..To finish I added a computer generated sentiment to the bottom right , bending it gently in my fingers to give it a bit of movement and glued with 3D glue gel..I kept the sentiment open so it could be for a variety of occasions ...
Thank you for taking the time to pop by :)

WWODT August Challenge

This is by far one of my favourite cards in a while..I have coloured the beautiful image by Julia Spiri in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..I then coloured the background with pastel chalks as I did not want it to over take the image..I used pencil just to define it..It was then mounted onto some Pink Hunkydory Card..as was the lovely papers..I chose these ones as the image looked perfect on them..I rather than making flowers decided to decoupage the lovely flowers on the papers and add them on with 3D glue to make them pop up off the page and to add some depth..I do love playing with papers this way ,on this particular case the paper and the image marry together perfectly..The paper pad I used was Hunkydory Florabunda,and it has some extremely beautiful papers in there and they are also double sided too ,so great value for money..I would have used glitter but my my glue pen has died,but after looking at it today in the daylight I am pleased I did not ..not keen on glitter except at Christmas of course ,but that goes with out saying as its all glitter then he! he! he!..

Sketch Saturday ..Mmendel Illustrations

Hiya..Been busy this week I know ,but last one hehe ..I coloured this really pretty mermaid with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card ..I then cut her out using Tattered Lace Basic Ovals and did a pink mat to pop her on using card from Hunkydory..I used this also for the papers too ..These were also from Hunkydory from their Delightful Deco pad.. These are silky papers that add a nice shimmer to them,not my favorites because they are a little thin for my liking but they do look nice on the card..
For the shape on the side I folded a piece of card in half and carefully cut the shape out allowing for the depth of the oval and and just a bit more,then I fussy cut it out,then transfered it to the paper I was using..,this saved making mistakes on the best paper..Then I glued it onto the mat and fussy cut that out too ,not perfect but it is something very different .. The flowers are from CC English country Garden range ,I used the smaller flower on this card..The design merited two but I felt it looked odd so I added three,to finish I added a computer generated sentiment and some pretty resin roses to the center of the flowers..
Thank you for taking the time to pop by :)xx

All The Colours of the Rainbow Challenge at Sasayaki Glitter

Hiya..Quite a simple fun 6x6 card for the start og the new challenge..The image has been coloured with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card,I did the background sky with pastel chalks to keep it soft and natural..Dont forget to spray with fixative if you use these..I use an old trick taugt me at school by my lovely art teacher,use Hairspray..I just use an own brand one not a fancy one..I have tried to add all the colours of the rainbow as accurate as I can with the colours I have to the main picture..but I had no paper that has so many colours in so had to go for the lovely shimmering Do crafts Painted blooms pad for the ones I have used..The card is Hunkydory Adorable Scorable..I doodled across the center strip of green card and added all sorts of size and coloured buttons to finish..It has made a fun card suitable for a boy or a girl..Thank you for popping by :) xx

New Release Day at Sasayaki Glitter

It is nice to do a baby card for a change ..he is super cute too isn't he with his little monkey ..I have coloured him and his blanket (which is my addition and not with the stamp)..with my Polychromos onto Neenah card and done the background with pastel chalks....I have used Tattered Lace Desert Rose Doily Nested dies for the cutting out of the finished image and the backing card..I have used these on a slant as it seemed to take the image better this way..The card I mounted the papers and the image on is from Hunkydory.. The papers are from a First Editions Neroli paper pad..The one paper which was double sided I quartered and mixed the two patterns to give more interest ,and then I did a bit of faux stitching around then to help them pop a bit more..The cute buttons and baby die cuts are from my fast growing collection from China ..
Thank you for popping by :) xx
