So Sweet

Well, this is my last official post for my stint on the Tiddly Inks design team. I am a huge fan of Christy's images and artwork, and it was an absolute pleasure to be chosen and to be able to create so many cards for her. The ladies on the team were all lovely and so supportive, and it was great to get such lovely comments from them all the time. Due to a busy winter approaching with family commitments, I will not be submitting a card for the next design team term :( :( However I will absolutely reapply for the one after that. I can't help myself! So for my last card for the So Sweet Challenge, I used Summer Sweet Wryn. I coloured her with copic markers and tried to keep it pretty pastel. I added some glitter to the front lolli pop and used large chipboard letters for the sweet sentiment. More details below.
So thankyou everyone who's come to visit my blog over the past few months. I'll still be posting lots of Tiddly Inks cards so please stop by again.

Dragon Friend - For Fabby Friday!

Tiddly Inks just designs the most gorgeous stamps ever right??!!! I am loving the variety in the store, there's lots of boy images, as well as the most delightful images for little girls, and older girls too! It's was so hard to choose what to use for today's Fabby Friday challenge! I settled on Dragon Friend, as it my cousin's daughter's birthday soon, and she loves dragons! I couloured it with copic markers and added some detail with my white marker. I'm obsessed with the American Crafts glitter paper at the moment and couldn't help but add a bit of green sparkle under the dragon. And yes, another feather! I loved how it looked on my springs in card last week, so I added one on this card too. Now, head back over to the challenge blog, to check out the other design team creations. And I can't wait to visit your blog to see what you've made too. Have a lovely weekend!

Watercolour Birthday

If you're looking for my Tiddly Inks card for challenge #154 - Anything Goes, please scroll down, it's the next post!
If you're here to look at this card, or anything else, welcome! I'm still very much in a watercolouring phase. I think it's a technique I won't ever grow out of. I just love the look. If you have seen my previous watercolour card, you will know that I am an absolute beginner, and have only tried it on a few cards, so bear with me on this journey! I am loving how it turned out on this card though. I mixed a few blues and greens together and then splattered the same colours with a paint brush over the top, but after it dried. I actually then used white embossing paste and a stencil to add a bit more texture. I used two layers of lace around the bottom and added some dazzling diamonds to the cupcake.
