More Manga

The Sugar Bowl challenge this week was a sketch with the added extra of ribbon or bows. I have used the Manga Girl image, another Sugar Nellie recent release and Basic Grey Lime Rickey papers for this card. The ribbon is some sticky ribbon from my stash and I have coloured the image with Promarkers. I finsihed the card tonight then realised that the deadline was last night!! Thought i'd blog it anyway.

Sketch Saturday had another great sketch this week and I just had to use manga Girl again. I had to rotate the sketch to fit the image in. Manga Girl is again coloured with Promarkers, the papers are Basic Grey Marrakech and the flowers are Prima. Ribbon and dots are from stash.
Thanks for looking

Friday Sketchers challenge

Hurrah, I found time to get my stamps out! I have used this weeks sketch which was nice and simple to work with. The image is Manga Boy and is one of the latest Sugar Nellie stamps. I managed to get my hands on them last week. I coloured him with Promarkers and inked around the image with orange chalk ink. The papers are Basic Grey Lime Rickey and the sentiment stamp is HOTP. I punched the sentiment out and added some ink and little shimmery dots.

Messy Rabbit saves the day

I was asked to make a couple of cards for work colleagues. One was for an engagement and another was a thank you card that had a tortoise on it. I had very short notice for both cards so with limited time my Messy Rabbit CD came up trumps for both. I have used Bazzill cardstock to mat the images and some little sparkly circles on the engagement card, which you might make out in the close up. The letters were done using the Moxi alphabet and my Quickutz Squeeze. Hopefully I will get the chance to do some stamping and colouring soon- I am having withdrawal symptoms!

Playing in The Sugar Bowl again

A great sketch for this latest challenge and you also had to use some sparkle, bling or glitter! I love bling but decided that this image needed it rationed.The image is another High Hopes one that got inked up for the first time. Papers are Basic Grey Boxer and some scraps of Bazzill. The little glittery dots are from QVC, no idea who makes them. I punched a flower using my Retro punch and popped another glittery dot in the centre.

Newsflash- just realised that I was supposed to use a Sugar Nellie stamp duh!!!Oh well, I still had fun :0)

Friday Sketchers

I have been dying to ink up these cute stamps from High Hopes for a while now so thought they would be perfect for this week's sketch, which I rotated to fit. The papers are Basic Grey Lime Rickey and the mat has been cut using Nestabilities.I coloured the boy & girl with Derwent Inktense pencils, cut them out and "sat" them on the hay bale using 3D foam pads. I then added glitter dots in accordance with the sketch and the sentiment which I washed over with a very pale blue.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you might leave.

Welcome Back Sunday Stamper

Sunday Stamper returned this week and the theme is HOME. I have cheated a bit and used a garden themed stamp as my garden is a large part of my home- hope you will allow this Hels. The stamps are all High Hopes and the papers are from Jesse Edwards. I have watercoloured the main image, cut it out and inked around the edges with a green chalk ink. I also inked around the edges of the card.

Hels is also giving away this candy to celebrate being back.Go check out her blog on my sidebar for details.

Friday Sketchers

Just made it in time to enter this week's challenge over at Friday Sketchers. Nice simple sketch this week. I used one of my new High Hopes stamps, coloured with Promarkers and cut her out using my Nestabilites. The paper is from basic Grey Lime Rickey collection. Flowers are Prima and the glitter dots were from QVC.
I am having problems with my playlist- basically it stopped playing so I have removed it for now. Since I did my blog has stopped freezing:0)
I have put on a few videos instead but these aren't going to smoothly. Anyone else having the same probs?
