Then I remembered these two gems...

The image is from Digistamp boutique and the papers are from Wild Rose Studios thank goodness for stash lol! I love the background paper those fish are very calming.
The blossom round the edge of the image is one of the new corner stamps from lilli of the valley

April Showers .............

.......Well not in my neck in the woods there hasnt been we have had beautiful sunshine this week.....
This week It was the lovely Kirstens turn to choose the theme Kirsten herself is taking a short break but we are honouring her challenges until she returns....


This was one of my first WOJ images and she is so beautiful the papers are Basic Grey (offbeat)
a bit of layering this week and some decoupage on the umbrella, dont zoom in though because the photo quality is terrible using my iphone at the moment and i havn't the steadiest of hands lol!
To colour I used a mix of promarkers and prismacolour premier pens....

Sketch it at Allsorts

Good Morning !

Its that time again, time for another challenge at Allsorts and this week its my challenge and I chose a sketch

The image and papers are from this weeks sponser Stitchy stamps!
The embossed panels were acetate not something i'd normally use but I didnt want to cover up those beautiful spring papers a few blooms and pearls to finish....not my usual style but I felt the image called for something a little different.

Anything but a square for Allsorts :)

Good morning and I hope the weather is warm and sunny where you are we have had some great weather this week in Leeds and long may it continue.....

Ok onto this weeks card for Allsorts, Fleur would like you to make a card thats
'anything but a square'

so this was a chance for me to play with my new nesties that I got from Harrogate GNPE

I am realy pleased with the shape and the nesties are now my favourite the papers are from a DCWV pack I think I may have to check....
The image is the beautiful pen pal from sugar nellie and this image is one of the reasons i love Aquamarkers the colours stay so vibrant something I have trouble with with normal water colours.. a quick LOTV sentiment stamp and some prima and e-line flowers to finish.

Have a great day I'm off to work for a few hours to paint some faces lol

Blooming Blossoms

I'm not cross with flowers today Blooming Blossoms is the name of Brendas challenge over at Allsorts
and we have the fab Digistamp Boutique sponsoring us again as its the first challenge of the month...

I went for a CAS inspired card as the image is so delicate I didnt want to take anything away from it, I coloured the image with water colour pencils and with a slightly damp brush (so as not to smudge my printer ink) dragged he colour out slightly added afew pearls and some organza ribon to finish...

I'm going to enter a few challenges this week starting with
stamp challenges - Digi
