Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 19 January 2018

Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Just a reminder that the Monthly Blog Challenge topic is "NEW BEGINNINGS" eg New Year, new home, new job, new stash etc.

This week the Design Team were challenged to "BRIGHT COLOURS" by Lozzy.

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Ladybug" (which comes in a set of two other images - Seahorse and Dragonflies). I have coloured the image in with Promarkers.

The backing papers I have are from my stash and I have used my Tim Holtz distressing tool around all their edges and the digital image to get some texture.

I have finished the card off with some red satin ribbon, pearls, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and some twine.

Promarkers used: 

Ladybug - Ice Grey 2, Ice Grey 3, Poppy, Berry Red, Cocoa, Henna
Flowers - Orchid, Amethyst and Purple

Colour Crazy Challenge Blog - Friday 5 January 2018

 It is Friday and therefore time for another challenge over at the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog.

Today sees the start of my role as a permanent member of the Design Team.  I am super excited.

The topic is "anything goes".
We are lucky to have "Polkadoodles" as our sponsor this week.
I created my own journal recently and decided the time was right to decorate the front of my journal.  I have used the Polkadoodles image called "Ula - Be a Unicorn" as I loveeeeee anything to do with unicorns. I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and added Stickles glitter glue to her wings.
 The background of the journal I made myself by using Tim Holtz Distress Oxides ink refills, different stamps, knocking them back a bit with Imagination Crafts Pearl Starlights Metallic Paint and then stamped over again.  I used a Marianne Designs die for the letters for "MY JOURNAL" and die-cut twice in pink and blue and shadowed them on top of each other.  The page has been finished off with some Viva pearl drops, flowers and the sentiment that came with the digital stamp.

Promarkers used:

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal
Hair/horn - Duck Egg, Pastel Blue, Azure, Fuchsia Pink and Pink Carnation.
Wings - Pastel Blue and Stickles glitter glue.
Tail -  Duck Egg, Pastel Blue and Azure.
