Inky Impressions Flower Lili

Back to cards today! I’ve got an Inky Impressions girl for you and this is Flower Lili – so sweet!

I’ve matched her with some K & Co papers Que Sera Sera, one of my favourite packs, but I rarely use it. Do you have one of those paper packs that you just like to look at? It is too pretty to layer up on! LOL!


Little Lili is coloured with PrismaColor pencils (no surprise there!)


I’ve used one of the charms from Inky Impressions but I’ve cut off the hanging loop to leave a little dragonfly flitting about the button flowers 🙂

Thanks for popping by and catch you all later

Inky Impressions Challenges No. 32

Fancy a challenge? Well Inky Impressions has a fabulous challenge. We are still thinking green but this time it is to:

Recycle

Now you have two weeks for this challenge and you do not need to have an Inky Impressions stamp to enter the challenge, you just need to recycle something.

So here is my DT make for the challenge and I have used Inky Impressions Lili Roller Skating for this make with some My Mind’s Eye paper and some Inky Dinky Drops.


My recycling? Well the ‘ribbon’ is from some packaging for fruit.


I seem to have a thing for coloured hair at the moment 🙂

Hope you all have a great recycling day.

Kim

Inky Impressions Challenges No. 31

It is a colour challenge for the Inky Impressions Challenges this fortnight:

Think Green

All you need to do is add green somewhere in your make. I’ve used the Amy Butler papers from K&Co with the lovely lime greens.

The image is the cute Lili’s Cleaning Day from Inky Impressions and I have coloured her with PrismaColor Pencils.


The heart embellishment is made from painted corrugated cardboard and I’ve layered it up with some netting, fabric and Hessian with a button and paper beads to finish it.

Have fun with your green makes.

Kim

Edit: The lovely Shirley has done it again and pointed out that this card fits the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday which this week has a Lucky Green theme. Thanks Shirley!

Inky Impressions Challenges No. 28

Morning All, have you seen the Inky Impressions Challenge for the next two weeks? It is all about Luuurve (aka: Love).

Think Valentine!

Show the Luurve by adding hearts and pink to your project! But it doesn’t just have to be for Valentine’s day, it could be for anniversaries, thinking of you etc.

Here is my DT make for the challenge and before you scroll down, there is a hidden space for a secret message to your loved one on this card…can you spot it? 😉


I’ve used Angelica’s Lantern and matched her with Basic Grey Sugar Rush. I’ve used a doily to trim the heart shape and then hand stitched a border using the stitch in this tutorial here and beads.


Angelica has been coloured with PrismaColor pencils and Sansodor.


The sentiment was printed and I’ve doodled with Prismacolor Premier Illustration Marker and used a beaded straight stitch and button to decorate the sentiment seal.

So what about the secret message space?


Did you spot the beads sticking out from the top of the heart? Well the heart is a little pocket and if you pull the beads you will find a little piece of Sugar Rush paper stamped on the back with lines and decorated with glittery swirls and an itsy bitsy tassel.

You can write a secret message to your loved one and no one else will ever have to know – Tee Hee 🙂

I’ve popped this new card into my Etsy shop.

Have a Love Filled day

Kim
