Playing with Watercolour Pencils

While I have been away Ill I have had time to sit and playwith my own drawings ..I also was lucky to get some Faber Castel Durer Albrieght (I think that's how it is spelt)  pencils for my Christmas and Birthday present ,so lucky ,and just had to play lol! as you do
The first one I did was for my friend's Grandson,She had made him a fabulous Tepee for his birthday and I sat and drew and inked up this little indian the one night ,offered her it as a digi and she said too hard to colour ,so I did it as a picture for the little one to go with the tent..She was made up,so was her Daughter and the Grandson..Thats why I like drawing lol!

The second was for another friend who wanted a Sheep for a young girl who loves Sheep ,I sat for hours to get it done so she could get it onto the card and get it to her in time ,another happy friend ..

And finally I was shown a silly soft toy and asked to do a card with it on so I used a little artistic liscence ,changed the colour slightly and a few things and this is what I came up with lol!..I have not shown the card as it was personalised ..
So I have not just been sitting doing nothing  in the months I have been away ,but back on with the cards again now 

Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Reminder Inspiration Card

Hiya.. It seems ages since I last posted ,but I have been very ill and have been getting over blood clots on both of my I needed time for me and not the cards lol!..but I am back now and will be posting as usual ..Todays card I am thrilled with as I love this image,I have been meaning to do her for a while ,she is one of Sasayaki Glitter's older ones ,but she is so cute,the link is below for her .. I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card,then mounted her onto craft card.
The papers I used are Hunkydory Florabunda,some very pretty papers in this pad ,well worth having it in your stash..These were also mounted onto craft card and because the brown paper bag type paper looked similar I popped a faux stitch border around it to make it stand out a little more.
The pretty floral dies I used were cut from a scrap of Centura Pearl in pink using some of my bargain dies from China..I am still not well enough to hunt through dies like I usually do ,but as luck had it these were handy,I finished them off by shaping them and adding some pretty blue gems to the center ..I then added a pretty small pink spotted ribbon to the top corner to finish.

World Wide Open Dt Challenge October

Hiya,for this Beautiful image of the Flower Dress,I coloured her with Polychromos Pencilsonto Neenah Card..I decided not to use a background on her because of all the detail,but it her out and layered her onto a beautiful leaf green taking inspiration from her Dre’s..I also uses it the mat the gorgeous papers from Docrafts Bohemiem paper pad. To finish I added three white faux pearls on adjacent corner..a simple card,with a great WOW I did not colour to match the papers ,I was looking through my pads and these ones just went perfect with it lol!, it’s even pearlescent too 😀 xx

Sasayaki Glitter ..New Challenge Orange

Hiya, for this challenge ,being Orange I chose this little cutie as the next two posts are going to be super cool images just right for Halloween so I did not want to do one for this one too..I have coloured her using Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card, and I used Pastel Chalks for the background..Please note the image is just the girl and the background is just my doodling so does not come with the image.
I then popped some squiggles around the edge and mounted her onto craft card..
The papers I used were from a Polkadoodles cd called Magic Garden ..I could not find orange papers anywhere then remembered seeing these on there ,a little more of a teracotta but close enough to orange.I added a piece of cream lace and some natural hessian ribbon to the smaller piece of card then once the topper was added with 3D glue I added a small bow,to finish I added some faux pearls 
Thank you for popping by 😊 xx

Sasayaki Glitter New Release 1st Oct

Hiya...As usual I have coloured my image with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..I cut her out and mounted her onto some green card ..The papers that i have used are from a Hunkydory pad called Florabunda and works wonderfully with this lovely summer image..The background is my own drawing and I did the back wall with pastel chalks..I have noticed that there are pencil marks on this now its been photographed..this is because I used the wrong side of the Neenah..Fore some unknown reason there is a smooth side and a slightly and I mean slightly rougher side ,this is the one I usually use,and I wondered why it was not playing right,now I know lol..funny how you get used to one thing but it does work better for the build up of the pencils and the blending on that side ,seems to slip on the smooth side..
Thank you for taking the time to pop by 😊 xx

Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Reminder

Hiya for the inspiration card for the challenge reminder I have made this beautiful bright colourful yet  simple card .. I coloured them in using Polychromos Pencils on Neenah ..I then added three circles in different coloured behind the bunnies..I then mounted it onto a Bright Blue,Yellow and Green card and simply stuck it to the white card base..I then cut out two stars and added a sentiment from Sweet Dixie sentiment stamps,It is clean and it really pops off the shelf,sometimes it is all that is needed for a card and in this case it worked perfect..
Thank you for popping by :) xx

Sketch Saturday ..Sasayaki Glitter

Hiya,todays card for this challenge I have used my favourite Sasayaki Glitter winter girl image,I did her last year ,but could not resist again this year lol!..once coloured with my Polychromos Pencils I fussy cut her out..I then used Tonic Winter Wishes Paper pad and mounted them onto a beautiful toffee coloured card,As the main paper had the lovely gingerbread men on I used a lighter one for the panel....As you can see I have just popped a straight banner across my panel ,my mistake,but you can make slight variations on the sketch and this is mine..To finish the project I added all the main features the girl and panel with 3D glue gel and then I used a very small punch to cut some tiny snowflakes and scattered them around the card marking the center with a gold pen to just give a little bling to them ..
Thank you for popping by :) xx
