Spots and Stripes at Southern Girls

Hello there!  Time for another smashing Southern Girls challenge.  Wow this one is so darn easy, we're going to have to put our thinking caps on to provide more challenging challenges!!

Spots and Stripes

I've gone all monochromatic as, for me, this image from Little Claire called Swirly Whirlie Cats was made for this black and white setting.  

It's a pretty quick and easy card something that my missing mojo wouldn't really be required for.  I've used a new Spellbinders die and lots of lovely satin ribbon for the stripes then some spotted satin ribbon, the fabulous image and some glue, of course no card is complete without some bling too.

The fabulous design team have some lovely inspiration for you at Southern Girls challenges, Hope you can join us for our Spots and Stripes challenge.

I have candy up for grabs, if you're in need of a Copic Marker storage solution, check it out.

Windy Day

Here is one of the fabulous Saturated Canary rubber images now stocked at Mad for Markers store.

Windy Day, isn't she so cute?  I have lots of new toys to play with from Mad for Markers store, I splurged and got a little bottle of Copic Opaque White in a recent order.  This image has some on her dress, hair and shoes.  Lovely to work with.  I also got a few of the Saturated Canary rubber stamps and some new La La Land ones as well, so many stamps yet to see ink!

I've really had a non creative month and it's still going!  Isn't it just awful when your mojo goes missing? All those lovely new items and no urge to create.  I did manage to colour up this fabulous image and I'm happy with the result.  I decided not to make the card up yet as I might use her on a journal page.

 Colours used.
Dress, shoes and kite:  YG61, 63 & 67, E30, 33 and 35, R20 & 23
Hair:  E50, 30, 33, 13
Skin: E0000, 000, 01, 11  Eyes YG61

Let's hope your mojo is working for you and you are creating a masterpiece for this months' Mad for Markers challenge!

Check out the Candy on offer until the end of this month!

We're testing your metal!

Hello all, welcome to a new challenge this week at Delicious Doodles.  This week we're testing your metal!  (ok bad pun)  But we do want you to use metal on your creations.

I have used Teri's Tattoos and Feathers image, my first steampunk style card, not sure this style is quite 'me' but I did have fun colouring the image and putting the card together, and truly, that is all that counts!

Metal used here is a metal charm which was copper coloured but I went over it with a metallic silver pen, then I've used metal brads and the same metallic silver on the image and one of the cogs. 

Hair: W1, W3, W5, W9 Sand Spica
Feathers: YR04 & R17
Clothes:  R17, R27 & R46
Skin E0000, E000, E01, E11, BV0000
Goggles E39 C2 and C5
N1 outline.

Hope you're inspired to join us!  If you use a Delicious Doodles image, don't forget to enter your name twice and your project will be spotlighted!

I have a sticky post on my homepage, Candy on offer!  If you're after a storage solution for your copic markers, check it out!

Morning all, I'm away for work at the moment, which is just as well because my MOJO is still MIA!  But here's a card I prepared earlier.

Hopefully if Mr Blogger is playing nice, this post will auto-magically appear on my blog!  If not, well I guess I'll just have to fix it up a bit later then.

This month the challenge at Mad for Markers is all about the Copic Marker colour families of Green and Yellow Green.  Create a project featuring those colours and enter it at Mad For Markers

Here is tea time Marci complete with her laden tea table, just waiting for her guests to arrive!

I have drawn the little pattern on Marci's dress and added the pattern to the table cloth using a piece of cotton lace wet with colourless blender.  Well I didn't actually get the lace pattern but I did get a lovely mottled effect!

Copics used
Skin: E0000, E000, E01, E11 & E93
Hair: Y000, Y11, Y15, Y17, Y19, Y35, Y38 E11, E13, & E31

I'm also celebrating 'A Mother's Love' in my card, this is one Teri's soft and pretty images, but she's got a dark side that girl!  LOL If you haven't visited her Delicious Doodles shop, you should, you'd have to see eclectic group of images to know what I mean by that.

I had to make this one a little girl, although I think I'll need to do this again with blue or lemon as the bunny rug.

Skin:  Mother E000, 01, 11, BG000, 11.  Baby R00, 01
Hair: E30, 13, 23, 29, 37, 39

Where the Bl@#$& hell is my mojo!

Hi all, can I just ask you to have a bit of a look around at your place and see if my mojo is visiting you?  I can't find it anywhere here, lucky my next two DT posts are done and scheduled!

I have been having some fun playing around with Zentangles or doodles.  Check this out for a first attempt.  I think I have a long way to go to match the fabulous ones I've seen on Pintrest, but I"m pretty happy with this first one.

If you find my mojo, please send it back this way, I've got several partly coloured images crying out for my attention but the inclination is MIA.

Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful Butterflies

Hello there everyone!  welcome to those of you new to following my blog.  Thank you for that lovely compliment.

On to my make for today, I printed this digi off twice then cut the three butterflies out and layered them to add some dimension.

I added a Cheery Lynne die and a LOTV sentiment.  The dots are embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder, I love that you can extend the dots out to cover a square card as it's a repeating pattern.  Lots of spica pen to make this sparkle too.

My followers know that I am on a few design teams and one of them is Delicious Doodles where the main image above comes from, one of the others is Mad for Markers, an online store in Australia, well I have some exciting news for all you Copic lovers....Sammi (boss lady at M4M) is having a Copic Marker sale!  for the entire month of September.  Need markers?  check it out!
Don't forget to check out the Mad for Markers challenge this month, it's to use your copic marker Gs and YGs.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges.

No matter which challenges - Die cuts or punches (I used a die cut)

Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Thank you for dropping by and if you've taken the time to leave me a comment, I usually reply to them within a day or two to say thanks.
