Moving out.

I am moving home! As much as I have loved using blogger I find that it is not as user friendly with iPad and iPhone and so it is with heavy heart that I have fallen out of love with blogger. But, I have found a new friend, hurray! So I can now be found at the following address so it’s a farewell blogger, it’s been fun but our relationship is over 😢

Copics versus spectrum noir pens.

The image on the right has been coloured with spectrum noirs and the one on the left I have coloured with copics. Personally I prefer the copic coloured one as the spectrum noirs were not as easy to blend as the copics. I did use x-press it copic card for copics and Neenah solar crest for the spectrum noirs. Generally though, the price paid for spectrum noirs is cheaper than copics but you cannot buy the refills for spectrum noirs so as pens dry up you are a bit stuck. I also have some refill inks for a couple of the spectrum noirs but was horrified to find that that too has evaporated😡 so sorry spectrum noirs, you lose my vote!

Kit and clowder classes.

I love colouring, I confess, it’s so relaxing and immersing. I have been doing kit and clowder classes quietly for a while and have enjoyed the process without the commitment to have to create “ a project” with it. I have experimented with a range of media and here’s some work using kraft paper and prismacolor pencils. Tomorrow I’ll post some work with spectrum noirs versus copic. Which will win? X

A different phase.

I adore the lawn fawn and my favourite things stamps and dies. I haven’t stopped by here in years , but I signed in tonight and had this as an unpublished post. I was contemplating deleting the blog as I don’t use it anymore.....but now I saw these I thought that the delete button may not have been a good idea... I’ll wait and see what happens. Xx

Harry Potter

Who doesn't like a bit of Harry Potter? When I saw this image a while back I had to buy it and I loved colouring her up, although badly in need of practice!

Wedding card.

I made this for my friend Anna who got married recently. The image is from, the now closed, saturated canary (sob....)  The papers are from stampin up ,courtesy of my friend Diane,  and the image  has been coloured with copics... I'm so out of practice with them!  The sentiment is from Lili of the valley and all the pearls and flowers are from my stash. I bought the diamanté embellishment on holiday this year. I fell in love with them and I have been admiring them for ages before actually  plucking up the courage to actually use one on a card!

Sitting up high

Here's my last entry for the challenge over at Dis' digi designs. This little one is in the sale. I just love the cute little bear!

Get your shades on!

This one is really bright! You'll need your shades. This image is a Di's digi download, so it's only right that I enter this one in to their challenge blog!

Narwhal love

This is a beautiful saturated canary image called narwhal love. I love these images and I had great fun colouring in this one with promarkers. The sentiment is a pink petticoat one and I have only just realised that pink petticoat has closed! The papers are prima ones that my friend Diane gave me and the flowers are from my stash that I bought from Wild Orchid crafts yonks ago. Naturally my trusty old sewing machine made an appearance! I'm entering this one in to the following challenges.

Two more lots of layers and cuteness.

Here's two more cards for the challenge over at Di's digi downloads. The hedgie card is for my dearest cousin who is very poorly and about to undergo some horrible treatment. She's been through it already and is about to undergo some more so I just want her to know that she's very special. xx

Scarecrow antics

When I saw this little scarecrow over at Di's digis I knew it was perfect for a certain someone! I love Di's busy little mice and I'm so addicted to them. I have teamed it up with some bright papers...old ones might I add and a selection of dies and I dug out the sewing machine and managed to slice through my thumb with my paper trimmer, but the pain was worth it as I love how this came together. I dug out my old promarkers too. It amazes me that they still work after being left for so long! I'm going to enter this one in to the new challenge over at Di's digis which is lots of layers and boy don't I just love my layers! I alos need to shout out to Lili of the Valley for their excellent customer service. I bought these sentiment stamp sets back in 2012 and was horrified to find that these had begun to crumble and split. I posed the question on their facebook page and received a new set of stamps and an explanation for why this had happened. Apparently not enough water was used when the stamp set I bought was manufactured and this caused the stamps over time to do this. Well done Lili of the valley for excellent customer service and no quibbles.  Hope my scarecrow doesn't scare you all away!
