A Little Steam Power

Yes I have finally drawn another boys image :D
I've coloured the image with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  I struggled a bit to do a quick colouring in these mediums.  I'm used to doing steam trains in water colour paint.  I sold a few paintings of them when I was in my 20's :)

The image has been framed with black card and I've added a Happy Birthday sentiment in deco art script from Scrapienic.  The sentiment was also coloured with ProMarkers.

Hope you like my boys card inspiration

Wow where did July go?  It's the last inspiration from me this month at Outlawz Sketch with Drawn by Krista as our sponsor


I've used Summer Beach Items for this card.  The colouring was done with ProMarkers.

Here's our sketch for this week


Two of my images have doodled borders.  The sentiment was created at the time of printing.

Where the flowers are in the sketch I've used the beach ball and sandcastle by fussy cutting them


The design paper I've used gives a kinda sandy background and it's from Studio Light.  Behind this is a piece of black card to frame it.

Hope to see you at the challenge

Mythology

Someone mentioned horse to me last week at work.  That was enough to set me off at a tangent and I've ended up drawing Peggy.  A horse of the mythical flying variety :D


So how did I colour it.  The background came first with Copics.  The then used ProMarkers and polychromos pencils for Peggy.  I used only a slight colouring on the horse so it would have a beautiful glow.

Once coloured I scattered white embossing enamel across the background for a starry night scene.

All I've done is framed the image with some black card to showcase it for you.

Don't forget I've two challenges running every month on the Blog Challenge and in my Facebook Group

Happy crafting lovely people

Cherry Blossom

A few months ago I was in my mother in laws back yard where she has lots of lovely flowering plants in pots.  one of them was a cherry blossom.  I thought it looked so pretty I used it to create an image with, which I've only just had time to colour up and make a card with  LOL!


This image was coloured with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  I also roughly sketched in a white painted wall into the background with Copics and this is what my mother in law has in her back yard and it makes a perfect backdrop

Once finished I scattered shabby white embossing enamel which also has glitter in it and gives a lovely shine (not that you can see it here) onto it and heated it.  Framed with black card all I've added is a wood chip Happy Birthday sentiment from Scrapienic.

Hope you love what I did with the cherry blossom

Love Life

Today is out second lot of inspiration for the July new release images.

I've used Holiday Girl, you can find here her in Wendy's Shop.  She come with mix and match clothes, sunglasses, hat, sandals and sentiments.

I've coloured her with ProMarkers and then fussy cut her.  I got to thinking while I was at it wouldn't it be cool it she actually wore the sunglasses and hat.  It was a bit of a challenge but I managed it :D

The design papers I've used are from Lemoncraft and Studio Light and have been distressed.

The large Love Life sentiment is from Scrapienic.  I've also added a tiny wooden heart, some flowers and a few pearl gems.

Don't forget to check out the Facebook Group and the blog challenge for the rest of the inspiration.

Summer Walk


It was the perfect excuse for me to turn my coloured image 50's Chic below into a card :)
The image was coloured with ProMarkers, Copics and polychromos pencils.  The white spots on the dress were done with a gel pen.

I've transformed the plain image by distressing the edges with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz, distressing the edges and then using white and aged silver embossing enamel.

I've turned it into a summer themed card by adding a Scripienic sentiment which I've coloured with black Copic

Here's a close up of the flowers arrangement on the left side.  There are some twigs from Scrapienic and the flowers are from The Ribbon Girl.

The design paper I used were distressed and are from Lemoncraft and Studio Light.  I've added some pops of pink to match the flowers and coz it's my favourite colour of course ;)

There are two different types of lace between the layers and a doily.
Finally to finish off a few pearl gems

Hope you love my inspiration today and we see you at the challenge.  Don't forget to check out the other AMAZING makes by the rest of the Fussy & Fancy ladies!

Hello

Yep - it's about time I finished this image off by making it into a card :D
Sorry it's taken me so long DT stuff, work etc.


She was coloured with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  I think I still need more practice at showing image movement through water but felt I'd got good water depth with the shading at the bottom.

I've turned her into a single later card, adding a few sequins and gems for bling and extra interest.

I finished her off with the perfect sentiment for her name, a #hello sentiment from Scrapienic

Happy crafty lovely people
