woj black and white buzzzzzzz!

I made this card for the WOJ challenge which was to use black and white and a splash of one accent colour...........I thought i would try something really different and took my inspiration from .....yes you've guessed it a bee lol!.......

I tried to carry the raindrops onto the back ground and cut out the image with my nesties (curved rectangles)
then stamped the image again over the flower to give a little bit of extra detail a few dew drops and stickles for that finishing touch!

Dont you just love this stamp she is the first WOJ stamp that I actually bought myself i had my eye on her for ages and finally had the chance to buy her in Harrogate.....

An honerable Penny Black Challenge!!

Good Evening!!!

Wow have I had a busy week and not even any time for crafting!

well I had to sneak up to the 'ol' craft room or I would have started with withdrawl symptoms!!
I would normally post my Penny Black challenge with my TYI tag but as I am sure you are all aware the TYI challenge is no more and I bid it a fond farewell......sniff!!
so here is my Penny black challenge piece all on its lonesome....

The theme this week is a gift........ now I decided on a gift tag so I hope thats ok and its also in honour of TYI!

The papers of the sour cream container and the flower are from the 'one in a melon' collection from Pink Petticoat they are so fab and so easy to use great for spring and sumer stuff,
the image is coloured with a mix of water colour pencils and sakura stardust pens ( I love these for a bit of instant glitz) a few mini flowers and a scrap of ribbon from my stash,
a few jump rings to attatch it and hey presto!!!

Here's a closer view so you can see the sparkle!

Color create challenge and sketch saturday

This week on colour create challenge the colours were duck egg blue and rose pink!

Well i had to use my new K&Co papers I picked up in Harrogate these were a bargain! 6 pads for £10 at the Hobby house stall.....
I have water coloured my image and just layered it simply so not to take any attention away from the gorgeous papers....a couple of primas and a charm from my stash.....

The sketch over at sketch saturday was also fab to work with I turned it on its side though as I had already coloured this image and it fit better this way.

papers are .....yep youv'e guessed it basic grey grey card stock is papermania and the little boat was cut out of the same paper the charm has turned around and i hadnt realised but it is a cap!!
