a little bit of love

Passion for Promarkers - week 467 Halloween colours - green -orange- purple and black. I love the quirky giraffes- they make me smile - coloured with aquamarkers - the washi tape is the same dark purple as the flowers and the gems - I took several photos but they all look the same - not sure why the colour is wrong.

I think there is enough white to call this card CAS . I used watercolour pencils in shades of brown ,orange and green for the challenge at CAS watercolour challenge .

Using up old stuff

I realised when this was posted I had forgotten to colour the 3 flowers around the edges - that has now been done.
how many of you still have old peel offs in gold and silver - I have quite a few and some black ones which I thought were very smart at the time - and that time is probably 14 or more years ago - I cannot count the number of times I've put them in my craftroom waste bin only to rescue them 5 minutes later - just in case.

I wanted to recycle this Christmas card  - I loved the image - I had a card base in a colour called 'forest green' which matched the colour of the middle king -the gold mount around the edges works really well with the gold peel off border and sentiment.

I WILL use up all my peel offs - eventually - maybe - sometime - perhaps this should be my mantra.

BINGO at ProMarkers

This little bird stamp is from Stampavie and is used more than any other stamp I have . I could happily make all my cards with this stamp - it works with pale colours - dark tones for  Christmas -
I just love it and should probably buy a spare.

Passion for Promarkers - week 466 - BINGO - I did the diagonal - flowers -image- sentiment - coloured with AquaMarkers.

I've tried for a long time to add lots of layers - papers- flowers and to include lots of different colours but it's just not my style - for me less is better.

sweet baby


I played around using lots of stamps for this card - the little bear is from Cuddly Buddly - I used sentiment stamps from two other sets - and mixed lots of sample colours with the red and blue AquaMarkers to get the right shade of purple -I also mixed the yellow and orange.
Passion for ProMarkers - week 465- animals - coloured with AquaMarkers.

a little bit christmas

I know I could have added so much more to this card but I really want it to be all about mice so I kept it simple.
It's very hard to see even with this cropped shot , I did add silver and white glitter under the feet of the mice and also used a white gel pen to add some snow in the sky.

Passion for Promarkers week 464 - Christmas is coming -love this LOTV image- so cute - I don't have a brown Promarker pen so a little mix of orange and green works really well .Thanks for my prize win last week - love my Promarkers.

I did ask myself are mice this colour - when Bella brings them home I don't really get a good look - she's a very vocal cat and when I ask her what she's got she meows to tell me and lets the mouse go - I go through the same process when she brings small lizards in the Summer.

A foxy little birthday

They say the camera never lies but the spotted paper on this card is pea green and matches the leaves on the fox and the sequin ,not sure what I can do to make it better , have taken lots and lots of pics but they always come out the same - hey ho.

Passion for ProMarkers  week 463 -  add a number - I love this little fox stamp- coloured with aquamarkers.
