Camper van stamp by Anonymous Stamps

Well today I have coloured a new stamp from Anonymous Stamps, I loved this camper van as soon as I saw it and couldn't wait to purchase it and get colouring.

Think this one is going to look awesome on a black bag / cushion / t-shirt.

Anonymous Stamps

I have been drooling at all the picture frames that have a final initial stuck to the class and that is stylised, so when I saw this fab digital stamp from Anonymous Stamps I just knew what I wanted to make.  As the design is so delicate in places it wasn't possible to cut it out on my blackcat, but I thought of a way round it I reverse printed it on Safmat and stuck the image on to the reverse of the glass.

I am thrilled with the finished item, the beauty of having a clear glass picture is that when I move it from one room to another, that has different colour paint, I get a new picture.

For the benefit of the photo I placed a white sheet behind to make the image stand out but when its in my lounge near the window the design really does stand out.

just to prove it is clear hear it is with a piece of coloured paper placed at an angle underneath
My next item to get a makeover using this terrific monodoodle is going to be one of my pillow cases, I will upload picture later.

Not alot of crafting done today

Today has seen me do very little crafting spent loads of quality time with family.

I have plenty to be getting on with, so must knuckle down to it tomorrow evening.

I have done a little colouring using my present from hubby.  It's a wonderful gadget that makes colouring easier eventually but takes some getting used to.

Here is a sample of some colouring done with graphics tablet using a wonderful image from Sassy-Studios

still plenty of work to do but I will get there

Todays one layer card

Today I have done some more colouring and then created a card with faux layers, I love single layer cards so much easier to post.

Believe it or not my digital colouring probably takes as long as traditional colouring but unlike traditional colouring all is not lost when I make a mistake, which happens more frequently than I would like.

As I got married in the autumn I decided to make a wedding card with a difference, I used autumnal tones.

I would like to enter it into the following challenge:

Another reason for my excitement is that tomorrow I can finally reveal on of the projects I have been working on and share some exciting news (Well to me it's exciting).

Clean and simple card using delicious doodles image

Well today I got to make one of my favourite styles of card a clean and simple with lots of white space and minimal embellishments.  This is my favourite style as I post a lot of my cards and here in the uk posting bulkier items costs more now.

I have used a delicious doodle digi stamp to create the card, but as I didn't want to add any embellishments to the card I made the focal image black and white and only coloured selected areas to really make them stand out.

New home card

Miley Glamoureyes bedtime sentiment card

Well I have been reading various blogs all afternoon, and learning of card challenges that I wouldn't normally have known about had I not read the blogs.

One challenge really caught my eye it was using a sentiment on a card, well my youngest doesn't sleep very well, he never has, so I find myself singing various rhymes I find on the internet most nights.  The one on this card really grabbed my attention.

So I set about creating a background paper, then some embellishments, I would really like to thank Birds Cards for her beautiful cutting files, she never ceases to amaze me with her creations and generosity.  I added an inked edge and then printed the rhyme on to it.  I then used a fab free digi stamp from Glamoureyes called Miley.

I am really thrilled with the final card hope you all like it too

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge

Stamping Dragon Designs

Well a few nights ago I discovered a new to me facebook group called Stamping Dragon Designs.

They run challenges but unlike other groups they reward you for participating with loyalty points and eventually when you have sufficient points you then get money to spend in their online shop which I think is a fantastic incentive to join in and showcase your skills.

One of their challenges this month is to colour in a really cute Christmas elf
Any how here is my card looks, after I had digitally coloured it and printed and assembled hope you all like
