Fly High

Hi there

QKR is one of the sponsors at crafting from the heart this week and this fabulous parachuting pigeon is one of their images.

I thought it was so cute and wanted to try out creating my own background "sky". I made a template of clouds with a scrap of card and used broken china distress into to create the sky on the card base, I then applied the same technique to the image.

The image has been coloured with promarkers and finished with ribbon, a button and some little tags

Hi there

The theme this month at Crafting Cafe is "Love and Marriage". This is my DT card using a fabulous image from bugaboo. I was a little tired of white backgrounds when I sat down to make this so decided to flood the background with a maroon promarker. I think it makes the image pop quite effectively from the page.
I've finished it with a little glaze on the glasses.

Hi there

It's a new challenge at 4 krafty girlz and bugaboo is one of the sponsors. This image is so versitle  - the original image had a different sentiment but I change it in serif.
I wanted to try a CAS design this time as I don't often leave a lot of white space on my cards.

Summer is here

Hi there

This is the theme for the challenge at Whoopsi Daisy this week and this image fits it so perfectly! I haven't played with my serif software in a long time so decided to make a digital project this time. I think it would make a lovely tag.

Birds on a wire

Hi there

Limited Runs is one of the sponsors this week at Crafting from the Heart and this is my DT card using one of their images, coloured with promarkers. 

The sentiment is a little tongue in cheek ("a best friend knows how crazy you are and still chooses to be seen with you in public") but I thought is worked well with the image.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Zentangle Heart

Hi there

It's another challenge at 4 Krafty Girls and this fortnight, Eureka is one of the sponsors. My DT card uses their "knot heart" image which I thought was crying out to be zentangled. I've kept the whole design very monochrome as I wanted the zentangle to be the feature.

It's so relaxing to add these doodle patterns on an image and if you haven't tried it yet, I'd recommend it!

Hello Duckie

Hi there

Its a new challenge again at Crafting from the heart and this is my DT inspiration card using a cute image from Eureka. As we seem to be having a little early summer, I wanted to go with something bright and cheerful which could be used for any occasion.

The image has been coloured with promarkers and the background paper is from American crafts.
