ks - Ahoy Matey inspirational post

 Wow, this was a fantastic project to do.
I've recently come across book folding and this is one of my first attempts - it went to the Father In Law for Fathers day - he loves his sailing..

I coloured her with the following promarkers
Hair - walnut, cocoa, sandstone, satin
Skin- Apricot, oatmeal, blush
dress/hat/shoes/belt - cool aqua, duck egg, sky blue, true blue

I mat and layered her up on some striped papers from my stash.
Printed the sentiment from my computer.
Twist 3 white pipecleaners with some blue striped twine and glued to the spine of the book.
Wrapped some red and white wool around a curtain ring to make the buoy.

KS New Release

This months new release from Karleigh Sue is Holiday Greetings.
You can find her and a few more new ones over at Karleigh Sue's etsy shop

I printed her on Neenah card stock and coloured her with my polychromo pencils.
My die cutting machine was out for another project so I thought I'd layer her up 

(sorry, no idea what or where the dies are from - they are off their packaging on a magnetic sheet, and my memory is pants!) lol

I added some ribbon from my stash and cut the mats and layers with the same dies (again papers from my stash)

Added some christmas coloured gems I purchased from KS.

I hope you like this inspiration for KS new release image and will pop over to their challenge blog and share your projects.
We love to see them

Kind regards

I used water colour pencils for the black stripes on the zebra and red for the santa hat.
I added a touch of Decoart Snow-tex to the hats fur and bobble.

Die cut image and layered on black then red.
Layering this on top of a border scrap from my stash.

KS Christmas in July

Are you getting those Christmas gifts made ready for the big day?
I have started mine
and Karleigh Sue has a new release of cute Christmas Elves to get you on your way

Here is what I did with them

That is only 4 of them - there is more to follow but I havent finished them yet ;-)

I coloured them with polychromo pencils on Neenah Classic Crest Card.

Papers and ribbon from my stash and my 1st attempt at a bottle cap..  Melted some embossing powder in it. Then used glossy accents to attach the die cut holly, with some seed beads as berries.
And a peel off greeting.

I chose this cute image from  Bugaboo (U Rock) because it was out of my norm!
I have loved colouring it.

I coloured it with my Polychromo pencils (sorry, was so excited at the enjoyment of colouring I forgot to list the colours used!)

I scruffed up the edges of the cardstock and layered in a scruffed up blue piece.

Cut 9 flowers dies with my newly purchased Presscut Flower#2 and layered them up with a bead from my stash in the center.

Kind regards
