Keep it Simple

Good Morning! Sorry my blog has been so quiet had a lot on recently, what with 4 weeks of quarantine   due to chicken pox and now were in cause of the snow but lots of good stuff has happened in-between! I finally have a craft room!!! Yep I know its so nice to have my own little space although it is taking some getting used to! I will get some photos as soon as I can! 

Well Im here this morning with the 2nd challenge over at Creative Creations Challenges.  I have to say WOW what a turn out last week! Really hope this challenge will be as good!!! So the theme I hear you ask…. 

Keep It Simple 

Its something I always struggle with - I do like embellishments!!! So our sponsor this week is the Wonderful Digital Delights and they are offing the winner a $5 voucher to the store.

So onto my card.  Now with moving all my craft stuff up to the room it has been a bit hard to remember when I put everything - so I have used the beautiful Lola Sif Digi from Simple B Stamps

The image was coloured with copics a while ago and it was by change the ribbon matched perfectly! The card blank was a 6x6 scalloped and I ran it through my big shot with a 6x6 embossing folder! I love the way its turned out! 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;


Well I hope you like my card and I look forward to seeing you over at Creative Creations Challenges!!!

A cute little butterfly….

Good Afternoon, well its been another long night - poor Nancy is smothered in pesky little spots :( not much I can do other than giver her plenty of cuddles and try to keep her happy - my goodness this young lady knows what she wants!  Anyway I have been busy doing bits here and there…. 

I was asked the other day if I could do an 8x10 for someone - I thought it was about time I coloured up a big print after all its been a while, and so this is what fell together! 

I have to say I am so in love with her - this is the gorgeous I am a Butterfly from CC Designs available from here .  when I was asked to do her the only requirements were that she has blue hair and a pink/purple theme and I have to say she is just so adorable - I was over the moon with the ideas of pinks and purples!!!! So I set to work strait away - she took a while to colour but she was well worth it.  She was coloured with copics;

E00, E21, E11
R30, R81, R83
BV000, BV00, BV02
B000, B01, B12, B21

The photo just does not do her justice! 
I also had to add some sparkle to the wings… I didn't want this to be too over the top and so I added it just on the outside lines using my stickles.

As I framed her I had to add a little bunch of co-ordinating flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts to the corner - I just stuck these using silicone, again you can't really see the colours and the pinks look more peach but I think thats just the photo!  I then had to add some punched butterflies that I coloured using the BV's as listed above.

Well I hope you like her - I had so much fun doing her and think I may have to do more sometime soon! I would like to enter this framed print into the following challenges; 

Can you Digi It - Sparkle (there is sparkle on her wings, flowers and rhinestones)
Crafty Sentiments - Sparkle/Shine and glitter
Everybody Art Challenge - Pastel Colours

Thanks for stopping by, if you have a moment I would love to know what you think! Hope to see you again soon
