All in PINK

Challenge #Sketch  Sketch and Stash
Challenge #Let's get digital Cupcake Craft

For this project I chose a digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil called "Shy" and coloured with copic pens.  I used a fine black liner for the faux stitching.

The sketch I used for this project was from Sketch and stash and the papers were from Crafters Companion (plain) and the pattern paperstock was part of a multi-buy I had from Create and Craft 12 months ago and had never used.

I used a Impressibilites embossing stencil to create the flowered pattern and a couple of Marianne dies to cut flourishes.
Finishing touches were corner peel-offs pearl gems and a paper flower which I glittered using a Ice stickles.

School days

Challenge #61   Lili of the Valley


For this project I chose a Lili of the valley stamp - school days which I think is absolutely gorgeous.  I have my 3 year old niece staying at the moment so crafting time has been none existent so am rushing to get this done whilst she's out for a hour or two.

The image was coloured with copic pens and the papers were a collection I've had for some time now.

I used two rectangle dies to create frame and embossed with a cuttlebug folder.

I  used some raffia string and a couple of brads to finish project.

Thank you

Challenge # 1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 embellishments   For fun challenges   
Challenge # 3 Sketch - Crafters companion
Challenge # 6 - Pearls and Swirls  Craftalicious


For this project I used another Jayne Nesterenko stamp from the Patchwork Polly and Friends collection called Olivia (my niece's name) available at Crafters Companion.  The papers are another product from Crafters Companion.

I used copic pens, a gel and glitter Sakura pen to colour Olivia's laces and strips on her pinafore. 


I cut the image out completely removing the wings so that she could be a little girl rather than a fairy.  I remounted her on some white card and added the ground shadow and a bouquet of flowers by using flower soft and some coloured pens.
I used a Nestibilities scallop oval to cut an aperature and then mounted over the image setting her head outside the inner frame.  The flourishes were cut using a Marianne die.

The embellishments were ribbon, flowers, and pearls.
