Lovely Lillies!

Hello to all.  I spent a lovely relaxing afternoon yesterday colouring this sweet image from Coloriage Wild.  I really enjoy colouring these pages.  The paper is the most amazing quality!   I have coloured the image and flowers with FC Prismacolour pencils.




The image has been placed on a blue mat background to make a CAS project to showcase the image.






A closer look at this sweet image. She really is a beauty!


Happy crafting fun to all!

A Bouquet with Thanks!

Hello to all.  
Its time for a new 'Anything Goes' challenge at Lemon Shortbread.
Its fabulous to see so many of you joining us for the challenge.
This sweet image is Hat Bouquet Girl coloured with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers and Polychromos pencil detail.


I have a lot of card and embellishments which I have had for a quite a while.   For this DT project I used some foiled card, some Kanban embossed card and soft purple layers.  All of these have been in my stash for ages.
The ribbon trim is new and I have used pearls and die cut butterflies from Joanna Sheen.



 Happy crafting fun to all!

Sunflower Love!

Hello lovely people.  I hope you are getting to enjoy some of the lovely weather we have been having in the UK!  
I have not been crafting or on the internet much over the last week.  
We have been off out and about and had a lovely time.


I have managed to do some colouring in the evenings and would like to share this cute image from Coloriage Wild.  The image is coloured with pencils, with touches of white gel detail.  
The background is various distress inks and a spot stencil.  
I am pleased with the shaby/chic look created.

Happy crafting fun to all!

Sunshine on a Rainy Day!

Hello to all.  
Its time for a new 'Anything Goes' challenge at Lemon Shortbread.
This cute image Polka Dot Raincoat reminded me so much of my eldest daughter as a young child.


The image is coloured with polychromos pencils and has a distress ink sky.
Various designer papers and die cuts have been used to create the detail.


This sweet picture of my daughter wearing a similar outfit, was taken when she was 2 years old.  
She was so cute and really brought sunshine to a rainy day - she still does!
