A card at last

Been a while since I posted a card, apologies but I really don't know where the time goes some days. Anyway, here is a wee Saturated Canary image....just for a change! I do have lots of other companies images but there are so many of Krista's I haven't coloured yet and I am trying to get around to them.
They are all so gorgeous that I am sure you won't mind too much

I decided to use up some of my flower stash too. I see lots of cards in blogland with beautiful arrangements of flowers on them and I can never get mine to look like they do. Must get practising, I certainly have plenty flowers to get through. These are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The papers are Prima and the sentiment is Whimsy Stamps. I realise as I type this that I have forgotten to do any shading under the image, must rectify that later tonight.

Here is a card using the beautiful freebie image that Krista from Saturated Canary gave away to celebrate Valentine's day. Isn't she adorable?

Her hair is coloured with Copics and the rest is Promarkers. The papers are My Mind's Eye and the sentiment is Greeting Farm.
Apologies for the slightly squint photo, that's what I get for rushing.

Making pleats!!

I have been practising creating pleats after watching a speed colouring video by Alyce Keegan. you can see her blog HERE. Her colouring is just amazing. She uses Copics whereas I use Promarkers so I don't get the same flicks. I am quite happy with how it turned out but definitely need to practice some more.

The beautiful image is from Saturated Canary, the papers are MME and flowers from WOC. I added a littel sparkle to her hair with Stickles but you cannot see it in the photos.

A male card for a change!

BRRR!!! I wish the weather would make it's mind up. Yesterday morning I went to work in a blizzard wearing snowboots. By the time I finished work the snow had all but gone. This morning there was a white covering again but it didn't last long. Tis freezing here tonight, time for jammies and a nice cup of tea.
Here is my card for today

This is a stamp from The Greeting Farm, isn't he cool. Loved colouring his hair.I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The papers are Basic Grey.
