Penciled Daisy

Tuesday, 26 January 2016



Hi all!  I've been enjoying a wonderful summer break by spending my days colouring, reading, designing, and in-between these good times I've thrown in some housework, but only because the need arose!  I'd spend all my time at the computer or my craft desk if I could (Oh, and reading!) :)
I created a couple of cards a few days ago and amongst it tried to produce a video, but because it's been sooo long since I've done a video, and because now I have a different camera to the one I use to use, it's taken way longer than I would've liked and I'm heading back to work tomorrow so wanted to at least post my cards!
Today I've used the set Squared Posies and printed my image on to Fabriano Accademia paper.  This set was designed by me and originally produced as a clear stamp set which is now discontinued, but I've transformed the set to digital.


I used a background stamp on the textured white card stock and stamped in Antique Linen.  In both cards the sentiment is stamped in Walnut Stain and the two panels made from the same textured card stock using the stamp pads to colour them.


To this second card I added some 3mm Cocoa Sprinkles (still to be added to the shop!), and some natural twine.


Prismacolor Pencils are always wonderful to work with so I had a blast!  To blend I used paper stumps and Zest-It!
Have a great week everyone!

Holiday Creating

Monday, 11 January 2016


What fun to have some time to craft with the school holidays here and Christmas over once again for another year!  I'm constantly amazed at people who can simply fit it ALL in!  Craft, work, family, craft!  I seem to run out of time, but then I also include my books - can't go a day without reading :)
Today I thought I'd share one of the images I've coloured recently as well as a quick CAS card for a challenge.  My first card had me pulling out my Prismacolor pencils which have been gathering dust for at least a year, but are well and truly on my revival list.


I bought this gorgeous image from Mo's Digital Pencil just the other day called Airborne and printed it on to a pencil friendly card stock and included a sentiment to save me adding it later (I can rarely get it straight if I stamp it after the fact).


My colouring is a little rusty, but I have to admit I had a fabulous time practising! I used Zest-It to blend, and because I used so many colours I put them away and so don't have a list this time round.  The balloon colours were for the colour challenge on Splitcoast CC563.


Next is a very quick card for the CASology challenge - Simple!  I used stamps from my Scribble Scrabble Circle set and Distress Inks, but printed my sentiment to suit the challenge but also to give to my husband, either for Valentines or wedding anniversary.
Week 179 - Simple


Thanks for stopping by and I hope your New Year was fabulous!
Smiles,
Andrea
