A Day for Daisies

Good Evening :)

I have spent time this evening updating my Pinterest with images of cards and getting up to date with the Copic Colours of the Day from Jennifer Dove.  I am finally done and ready to head off to bed and realise I haven't shared with you a few more cards I have made recently, three with images from A Day for Daisies, and one from Tiddly Inks

I came across ADFD about 6 months ago now but resisted buying any of the images until just recently.  They certainly have a unique look to them and bring something different to the digital image world.

First up is a card I made for Miss C with Spring Flower Hair

This year for my Ma's birthday I went with another ADFD image Pearls in my Hair, this was the first image I saw from ADFD and was always on my list to make a card with.

The sentiment came from some Kaisercraft mini stamps I have, and was just perfect!!

Next is an image call Bewildered B, when I first saw the line art for this I wasn't sure how I was going to colour all that gorgeous hair, but once I had broken it down it was actually quite easy :o)  This was such a fun image to colour up.

Finally a birthday card without using an ADFD image :o)  This image is from Tiddly Inks called Druscilla.  This was my first attempt at two tone clothing, and I think it worked out pretty well for a first go :o)

Thanks for stopping by

Boys, Boys, Boys....

Good afternoon, it has been a glorious sunny day here in Adelaide and I am on the couch feeling sad and sorry for myself with a head cold.  However it does afford me some time to catch up on posting some recent projects.  

Today I have 3 projects to show you, all for some of the many boys in my life, LOL that sounds terrible but between my family and work I am surrounded by them!!

So first up is a birthday card I made for my brother in law.  Since I have known him he has had this painting on the wall of his home, it is of an outback house and it was painted for him by his brother for his 21st birthday.  This painting used to hang in the old lounge room above the TV, and I would find myself staring at the painting more often than actually watching the TV.  This image from Make It Crafty reminds me so much of this picture. This is Aussie Outback Shack

A close up of this beautiful image -

This next card is a very clean and simple design for a birthday card using these awesome Candle dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  The Happy Birthday was made downloading a font from called gothical created by Pi Luo Chiu.

Finally a card I made for me and my team to sign to farewell a colleague into retirement.  Phil had been with our company for 23 years, he had so much knowledge and experience and would take the time to teach all of us about how things worked and why things were done a certain way.  For me who is most definitely not a technical expert Phil was so patient when explaining things to me so that I could understand.  He will certainly leave a hole in our team, and will be dearly missed by all.  As he moves into retirement he plans to take up lawn bowls, so Shot Bowl Sid from Just Inklined was perfect :)  (my apologies this photo was the best of a bad bunch...apparently I couldn't take a clean photo that day...)

Thanks for stopping by to have a look :o)

Girly Birthdays

Hello :)

In my world, I don't have many little girls to make cards for.  I have three nephews so cards for little people usually consist of trucks, cars, planes, motorbikes, dinosaurs, dragons or monsters....and very little bling ;)

This weekend was fun, stressful but fun!  My friend is Mum, and Stepmum to two gorgeous little girls who were celebrating their 2nd and 9th birthdays.

Over on the Kit and Clowder Facebook page Polkadoodles had the most amazing image give away to coincide with a funky hair challenge put up by Alyce. Everything fell into place, and it was the perfect image to use for Miss I's 9th birthday card.

A close up of the gorgeous Miss Luna from Polkadoodles.

Copic Colours
Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Tunic/Shoes - BV29, BV25, BV23, BV20
Skirt - BV01, BV11, BV13, BV08
Hair - C9, C7, C5, RV29, RV25, RV23

Little Miss E was turning 2, and the image Baby Unicorn from Make it Crafty reminded me of a My Little Pony.  I wanted to colour it in bright, fun colours.  I certainly achieved bright :)  The mane gave me grief though, pink is soooo not my colour, and I lost it half way through and almost started again.  I persevered though, and I was really happy with the end result :)

This image shows the Clear Wink of Stella brush I used through out its mane to give some beautiful soft sparkle :)

Copic Colours-

Pony - B06, B05, B04, B02, B01
Hooves - B39, B37, B34, B32
Mane - RV09, RV06, RV04, RV02

Two very happy little girls to be spoilt by everyone on their birthdays.

Thanks for looking xx
