A Tasty Read!


It is my turn to post on The Digi Bell's blog and today I decided to make a bookmark  using one of Elisabeth Bell's digi's - A Tasty Read which is available from Elisabeth Bell's digital collection.
I actually had all these little scraps lying around so decided to use them for this bookmark.... I actually think I had used them for another card but didn't really like it so decided to recycle all the papers. I coloured the image in with tria markers, then just added a couple of buttons and the pearl in the flower.
Be sure to come back tomorrow as we have a sweet new digi to introduce to you with our monthly Digi Bell's Blog.

I used papers from my scrap stash to create this card , then just added the button and the image from Eureka Stamps which was coloured with tria markers! Because the papers were so busy I decided th card didn't really need anything else.

Sketch 71 at Seems a Little Sketchy!

A new challenge has begun at Seems a Little Sketchy which will be running for the next two weeks. We are sponsored by

This is our sketch

and here is my take on the sketch
My wonderful friend Sam bought me this fab Sugar and Spice Studio paper pad which is all things Paris which I absolutely love so decided it would be the backdrop to the QKR image Air mail. I coloured the image in with tria markers and all the papers are from the above mentioned paper pad. I stamped the Eiffel Tower onto paper from the paper pad as well, then just added the ribbon and button (which accidentally moved when I took the photo) I have moved the sketch around a bit but all the elements are there.
 I hope that you can join us this fortnight at Seems a Little Sketchy.

Rachel, Little Angel

It is my turn to post on the Digi Bell's blog and I have for you a card using the adorable Rachel, Little Angel from Elisabeth Bell's digi collection. I haven't coloured her up for ages so decided it was time....
I coloured  Rachel, Little Angel in with tria markers, in my favourite two colours. I was sitting here wondering what to do so came up with this design of punching out the different sized peony circles and just adding the buttons. I also inked around the edge of the base card.
Pretty simple really!
Thanks for stopping by!

Sketch 70 at Seems a Little Sketchy!

A new challenge has started at Seems a Little Sketchy and we are sponsored by

Here is our sketch

and here is my take on the sketch
I used Blossom from Delicious Doodles: I never fully colour these images cos I don't think my colouring would do them any justice so I always just colour one element of the image! I already had this embossed paper so I chose that as my background, then added the ribbon. As simple as that, was a great sketch!
I hope that you will join us this fortnight at Seems a Little Sketchy.
