LDRS Creative –Heart on a String!


Hello everyone! Hope you’re OK!

I am posting on the LDRS CREATIVE INSPIRATION BLOG today, sharing another tutorial so if you enjoy process photos at slightly dodgy angles pop over to the blog and take a look.

My card today has Valentine’s written all over it (well not literally) using this gorgeous Cre8tive Cre8tions stamp set CLOUD NO. 9

I tried a spot of no-lines colouring on this and have to say that I find it a little more forgiving of my slightly slap-dash approach to crafting.  Really, I’ve gone over the lines?! What lines? 

I threaded twine through the frame cut from the SCALLOPED RECTANGLE set to add a bit of interest, (note to self; so much easier with a tapestry needle) and added some of the hearts from that set too.


Ingredients:
LDRS PRODUCTS
Stamps: CLOUD NO. 9
Ink: SUMMER SHORE - FLESH HYBRID INK - RAVEN HYBRID INK
Dies: SCALLOPED RECTANGLE

THE REST  
Colouring: Copics
Colouring Paper: ULTIMATE GRAPHIC
Others: Twine – Nuvo Drops – Sakura Stardust Pens

So check out the LDRS Creative blog HERE where you can see all the incredible makes from the amazing DT and go to the store HERE to get all your gorgeous goodies.  We also have a YouTube channel full of education and inspiration and visit our Facebook page where we would love to see all YOUR LDRS creations!

We Love 2 Create –Fly; You Are Special!


Hello, how’s it going?

Time for a new monthly challenge at WE LOVE 2 CREATE which is always ‘Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes’ and we are sponsored by the awesome POLKADOODLES!! Our winner will receive a fabulous prize so check out the blog for details.

So my DT project today has the dubious honour of being my first ever art journal page.  However, I am reluctant to refer to it as ‘art’ or a ‘journal’ really so it’s official title will be my ‘Messing Around Book’! Yes much more ME!! 


So this started life as an inked and stamped pattern created on my gel press using Distress Oxides and stamps.  I used Versamark ink through my stencils to emboss the angel wings and unicorn horns and used starlight paint for the feathers.  I think I was going for a slight nod towards the film Maleficent….at least that’s what I’m saying!


Ok so it’s a bit ‘out there’ but isn’t that what Art Journaling....sorry Messing Around...is all about??!! 

Ingredients:
Main Polkadoodles Stamp Image: BELIEVE IN ANGELS
Colouring: F C Polychromo Pencils
Colouring Paper: Watercolour
Ink: Versafine Smokey Grey - Distress Oxides
Other Polkadoodles Stamps: HEART SING TIME TO BLOOM
Polkadoodles Stencils: BELIEVE IN ANGELS COLLECTION - ACCENTS
The Rest: Imagination Crafts Starlight Paints & Texture Paste – Posca Pens – WOW Embossing Powder – Sakura Stardust Pens

Thanks so much for looking and taking the time to comment; I really do appreciate it! Enjoy what’s left of the weekend!

See ya!

This is HANGING OUT and I have watercoloured this sweet gang in ‘toy’ colours; so to speak.

Digi Choosday Challenge – Recycle!

Good morning everybody!  Hope everything is good with you and yours!


It’s Choosday which means it’s time for a new ‘Anything Goes’ challenge over at POLKADOODLES DIGI CHOOSDAY and as always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   

Don’t forget it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code on THE BLOG to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s for a limited time only so be quick!

The team had to look to ‘recycle’ this week so I searched my desk and this is what I decided to use. 

As I no longer use baby wipes (the eco-warrior in me) I had dried out the couple I had left to use as duster cloths or some such thing.  But then I thought, “You know, I can make something ‘crafty’ with these”.  I also had a bright blue padded foil envelope (that came with packs of sequins) and thought I might be able to use that too.

So here we are, a stamped and inked baby wipe; bit rough but it’s not the easiest material to work with and I used the envelope to cut several of the flower die that comes with the FANCIFUL CIRCLES SET.

This beautiful image is OCTAVIA BIRD IN THE HAND and I used a sentiment from the FOREVER SPECIAL ANGEL set.


Ingredients:
Colouring: Copics
Colouring Paper: ULTIMATE GRAPHIC
Polkadoodles Dies: FANCIFUL CIRCLES
Polkadoodles Stamps: HEART SING FOREVER SPECIAL ANGEL
The Rest: Dry Baby Wipes – Foil Padded Envelope – Cardboard Packaging – Metallic Pearls – Distress Oxides – Posca Pens
