less is more??...

more is better??......well I'll let you decide.. I very rarely do CAS cards because they never look "right" if you know what I mean but that's the challenge over at Saturated I have two cards to share today both using gorgeous SC images :0)...first up is "Copica"

in my infinite wisdom I decided to doodle around the edges..OMG I have never been so the end I held my breath and just did it..not entirely happy but it's a first attempt...

I've coloured her with Flex and ProMarkers... I often get asked about my blonde hair here's a list

Burnt Sienna
Raw Sienna
Pastel Yellow

next up is "Wildflower Fairy"...and this was a card order for a friend at work..again a first as it was an 8 x8 card

I've coloured with Flex and ProMarkers...the papers are 12 x 12's that I've had in my stash for ages.. I think they were Daisy Bucket?.....the l/o and embellies are still pretty minimal as I wanted the image to be the main focus of the card :0)

So there you have it..two totally different style cards..have a fab weekend and thanks again for stopping by

Elven Ardella

Evening bloggers...just a quick post from me as it's time for a coffee and a chill!!....just wanted to share my latest creation...I've kept this card pretty simple as the border was quite busy and the image is quite big :0)

I've used my beautiful new MIC digi image "Elven Ardella" ..i saw her had to have her then sat looking at her thinking ok.."where do i start??"

I've coloured with Pro and Flex markers but  must apologise because i am so unbelievably rubbish at writing the colours i know the dress was Plum, Purple and Orchid with a couple of Aubergine highlights but as for the hair there was defo burnt orange and spice and two other colours but the more i look at my chart the more i know i just havn't got a clue which they were....the wings were Flex markers in Soft Mauve and Pink Lavender with a little sparkle from a jelly roll pen :0)...the border I think is a Personal Impressions stamp which i inked up with my Plum PM...the background card is embossed and the purple strip is from my new First Edition pack ...

I would like to enter the following challenges..
Cute Card Thursday - What's New?....
Paper Sundaes - Saturated Colours

Dream Valley - Anything Goes

Hope everyone is having a fabby weekend so far :0)...apologies as this post is a little picture heavy..this week at Dream Valley Challenges "Anything Goes" i'm sharing a notebook i i have to say it was a bit of a labour of love as i altered the pockets on the inside too and the note book was fairly big..inbetween A4 and A5...

first of all i coloured up the images matching them with my papers :0)

and here's the finished book...


Inside Pockets

Dodgy pic of the whole thing :0)

i really want to share these close ups too along side ones i coloured when i first started  as i've really worked hard to improve my colouring and i think it's good to look back now and then so you can see how far you have come :0)
