My Entry into GDT for Saturated Canary!!

GDT for Saturated Canary!!

Hey all, thanks for dropping by, can you believe i`ve posted so many cards lately. My work schedule has changed which leaves me with a little extra time on my days of..Yippee more crafting time for me!! I just wanted to show you all a new image from Krista Smith of Saturated Canary. I just had to get this one and as my luck would have it she is having a GDT call using this image.
So let`s have a look!!

As you can see i colored this one in the beige and reds with a little yellow thrown in. I colored everything with my promarkers except her hair..i somehow seem to grab that combo for brown hair. I did add a bit of wink of stella to her lips, bracelets and the tags on the suitcase and some liquid accents to her glasses. I almost blobbed a big mess but was able to clean it up fast enough to not do any flew out of the bottle..I loved using my most favorite new color of twendy twine for this one as the colors matched perfectly and i was dying to use it. I wish i didn`t glue down my doily right there but there was no moving it once i put it down, i wanted it out just a tad more but it is what it is..ha ha

Thanks so much for dropping by and hope to chat soon..take care all

Oh how i love the Sea!!!


Hey all, thanks for dropping by. I just have to show you this amazing image from Make It Crafty. I did luck out and received this one as a freebie from Make It Crafty Facebook page..It sure does pay off to follow your favorites online.I have many of her images you should go check Make It Crafty out..i just love all their images..
Let's have a look! 

I colored this one with my promarkers for the most part but did her hair with copics. Did i tell you i just love the sea, ocean and all things fishy..ha ha. I even have a hand painted mural done by me in my bedroom wall of orca whales..they are just so beautiful. On to the card..i embellished this one more than usual but you guessed it i have a few things fish related in my stash. I even went nuts and used real glitter not the Wink of Stella kind but the real messy stuff. I wanted to add needed glitter to her tail which added shine and some dimension as well as texture..there's some crafty words if i ever heard them..ha ha..but it's true!! I had some burlap type material as well that added a nice background to the image for the earthy vibe i was going for..i think it worked...added a few gems, some charms and tags i had from my paper pack...funny i think i used papers from three different paper packs on this I usually stick to one as i know it will all match but sometimes you can get lucky..Thanks so much for coming by and i would love to enter a couple challenges with this one..

Graduation is here!!!

Hey all, been a while since i posted but never fear i`m always busy colouring, creating and making videos for all of you..Pocket Letters have taken a bit of my time as of lately but it`s all good. One day i won`t be working anymore and i can create all day long if i want to...ha ha

Well back to my post of graduation, here are a few i managed to remember to take photos of. I think i did over 10 this year. I wish i took a photo of the green and white one i did, i was quite proud of that one. But of course many of these cards were commissioned and for some reason always ask: can I get it done by tomorrow...whew, thankfully i had a day or two between cards, it was hard but i managed to get them all done. I don`t think people realize how much time goes into making these. I wish i could wave the magic wand and have them be easier to finish. I can`t even colour ahead as i like to match the recipients hair, eye colour and school colours if i can. Lots of red and white this year which makes for a pretty card. 
Well lets have a look..

Do you see a theme this year..All images are from Saturated 
adorable are these eh?? I did take liberty and add a stethoscope to one of the images but 
she became a doctor and i just couldn't resist adding that..sorry Krista...

They are all very similar and coloured with promarkers and a few copics. Didn't add too many embellishments as my usual style but i think all turned out cute. I did add a school logo here and there and added some gold papers to a couple too. In trend i think but thought it added a little sparkle to the cards..Wink of Stella was added to all the accenting colours. 
Many thanks for dropping by and having a look!
