KS - Inspiration post - Birthday Sweets

Todays inspirational post uses Karleigh Birthday Sweets.

I made this card to give to my cousin-in-laws daughter (is there such a thing as a cousin-in-law?)

Again, I forgot to list the colours of the polychromo pencils used - sorry..

I cut around the balloon by hand then layered it over a circle die to cut the rest out - missing the balloon
(easier to do than it is to explain!)

Mat and layered her on more circles from papers in my stash.

Cut the sentiment pieces from another die set (unfortunately these are out of their packaging on magnetic sheets and I cant remember the make of them)

Added as ribbon and bow from my stash.

Please pop over to Karleigh Sue challenge blog and share your projects.
We love to see them

Kind regards

I am magically blogging this as I fly to Rhodes ;-) lol
With this card is in my suitcase for a barmans birthday over there.

This project uses Karleigh Sue Just A beer Please digi.

I used my Polychromo pencils to colour her.
(sorry I got carried away with the colouring and didn't list the pencils used)

I cut her out using one of my fancy dies.
layered up over the same die in card from my stash.
Wanting to keep the 'bar' theme I rummaged through my peel off stash (once I'd wiped the dust off them!) and found a beer glass and bottle with glass.
Filled with diamond glass to get the glass effect and glued cotton wool on the pint for the beer head.

We love to see them

615 Avenue Create - #135 Happy Birthday

Good afternoon on this lovely sunny Sunday.

Todays inspiration blog for 613 Avenue Create uses a Chubby Mermaid Belly Dancer image

I coloured her using the following

Hair promarker tan, (lyra pencil) ochre, burnt ochre, (fabercastel) caput Mortium violet

the rest is a mix of Promarker lime green, fuschia pink
the fabercastel pencils - light phthalo blue, 

lyra polychromo pencil - pink madder lake, Rose madder lake
Derwent polychromo - lime green, bright lilac

I blinged her up with lots of gems, sparkles Aqua marine, stickles candy cane, scribbles Crystal Gel orchid shimmer and some nail art gems.

I layered her up on a patterned paper from my stash.
Die cut and edge with a Tattered lace die from my collection.
Coloured a silve peel off with a pink promarker for the sentiment.

I really enjoyed making this card and hope it inspires you.

TTPH Aug - Flowers

This months inspiration post for Through The Purple Haze  is a Sweet Pea digi called Fuschia Fairy

I coloured her with my polychromos.
Using shades of red/pink and purples (sorry, I forgot to list the exact colours!)

Like my friend (whose birthday it is for) I love Fuschias. so this card was a pleasure to make.
I borrowed her Fuschia stamp and stamped and coloured 3 fuschias to decorate the side and used some of my beading wire to make the flower stems.
The papers were just random scraps from my stash.

Please pop over to TTPH and join in our challenges.

Kind regards
