Tilda & Prismacolors

After much thought and watching You Tube videos, I decided to buy Prismacolors & practice my colouring in, yes I hear you say, its easy, we learnt that as kids, however whilst I can stay within the lines, I am not good at the shading & definition, so I thought that the Prismas would be a cheaper option than Copics or Promarkers. I bought 72 pencils from a seller on E Bay for £29.99, so this is my first play. I know I have a lot more to do to get it perfect but overall I am pleased with the result. The papers are from my stash, the flowers are Prima but I coloured them with Brushmarkers or Marvys, not sure which. Sentiment is from Anna Griffin and a few jewels from my stash.

Red French Lady

I was having a clear out yesterday & found a little book of decoupage, all of which were ladies. I thought I would use one of them, this card took all day on & off as I did not like it & changed it so many times. The end result I quite like, so not too bad. Used Nesties labels 2 for mount. Prima flowers from stash, sentiment stamp from Cuddly Buddly. Few jewels & ribbon & voila!

I made this ages ago, my friend Pam created a sheet from another friend Nickys photo of these stones and I promised Pam I would make a card but to date have never shown her, well here it is. Mounted onto gun metal grey mirri card.

Get Well doggy

Can you see a pattern emerging here, am I in a colouring in phase do you think?? lol
Image again from charmedcardsandcrafts . Flowers by Prima, which was originally pink and I coloured it with Marvy Le Plume pens, it has come out really well, albeit the picture does not show it off well. Stamp by Cuddly Buddly.

Pink Pig

This one is another image from charmedcardsandcrafts in their Animal Magic range. Coloured with pens again & waterbrush. Papers again from stash. Flowers by Prima

Yes I know its been a long time!!!!

I realise that my blog has almost expired due to lack of usage but after the wedding I seem to lose my mojo re crafting and as I do not sell my cards, I had loads in my box & could not see the point of just adding to the already large pile.
Anyway I have my mojo back and thought I would share the cards I have made today.
The first one is a digital image from Charmedcardsandcrafts from their animal magic range. I have used a mixture of Marvy & Whispers pens with a water brush to colour in. Papers from my stash.
