Welsh Dragon

Ok so I think that I might have over-done the Welsh theme with this card! LOL! It is a card for my OH’s Dad’s birthday and well, he is Welsh so we thought we would go for red, green and white. Perhaps a rather loose inspiration for a colour-scheme? But still, it makes for a bright card don’t you think?



Materials:
Stamp – Dustin Pike; Woodware sentiment; Stamps Away; Foam star stamps
Colouring – Copics; Promarkers
Usual Suspects – Paper trimmer; double-sided tape; 3D-foam
Other – Ribbon; Cuttlebug; Embossing folder

Colour Create Challenge Week 13

Wahoo, I’ve managed to do another Colour Create Challenge. This week the colours are Orange, Green and Brown, inspired by this piccy:


What a fab colour combo, I would not normally have thought about them but they were great to play with. The optional challenge is to make the card a male card.

Hope you like what I’ve come up with. I’ve used one of Dustin Pike’s images, coloured with my promarkers and Copic pens and finished with some hand-stitching.



There is a Mother’s Day competition going on over at InStyle Stamps where you can win a cash prize – $50 (or very slightly less for internationals to take into account PayPal). You better get over there quickly as the deadline is 11:59 PST Sunday, May 3rd. So you can still make it.

Materials:
Stamp – Dustin Pike; Stampendous Sentiment
Colouring – Letraset Promarkers; Copics
Papers – HOTP; GCD Studios
Usual Suspects – Double-sided tape; Silicone glue; Paper trimmer; 3D-foam; scissors
Other – Embroidery thread; glitter glue

Dustin’s Dragons

Puff the Magic Dragon – well, actually this little fella is from Dustin Pike who has a whole range of cute characters available as downloads at his Etsy Shop. But Dustin also, very kindly, gives away some free images on his blog too.

Isn’t this Dragon cute? I love my dinosaurs and dragons 🙂 I’ve coloured him with a mix of promarkers and copics and used my sewing machine to finish.

Dustin is also looking for DT members – well, I had said to myself that I wasn’t going to apply for any new DTs for a while but well, Dustin’s images are just so cute I could not resist throwing my name into the mix 🙂
