Swing of Flowers

Hi there

The theme this week at Whoopsi Daisy is "Hand Coloured Image" so I decided to watercolour this image for my DT inspiration card.

The edge of the card has been finished with an accordion style frame (It's a little easier to see in the second picture) and the image has been suspended from one of the folds so it sits away from the back of the card.

Thumbs Up

Hi there

This is my DT inspiration card for The Crafting Cafe challenge blog. It uses an image from Kenny K that I've cut into. I've used some industrial style wallpaper as the backing paper and have cut into it with a round spellbinders die so that the thumb overlays the background.

Ivy Fairy

Hi there

This is my DT inspiration card for Crafting from the Heart. The gorgeous image is from Delicious Doodles and it's called Ivy Fairy. I've coloured her with promarkers shading the wings in fire shades as I liked the effect and thought it went with the red hair.

I coloured the image before looking for matching background papers and realised that I didn't have any that really went. However by edging the image in distress ink and colour tinting some background papers with the same ink, it pulled it together.

Red Hat Lady

Hi there

Sassy Studios is one of the sponsors this week at 4 Krafty Girlz and this is my DT inspiration card using "the new sassy cassy". Red, Black and White is my favourite colour combination and what better than a red bowler hat!

The image has been coloured with promarkers and I've used a spellbinders die to create an aperture in the patterned paper. Its been finished with faux stitching, a bight red ribbon and double set red buttons.

Doodle Birds

Hi there

Doddle Garden is one of the sponsors this week at Crafting from the Heart and this is my DT inspiration card.

This image is so cute, I decided to watercolour it using distress inks. For a change, I actually picked the background paper first and coloured the image to match (my usual method is to colour the image first and then create a big mess of paper trying to find a background that works :)

Pearls in my Hair

Hi there

ADFD is one of the sponsors at 4 Krafty Girls this fortnight and this is my DT inspiration card. It uses the gorgeous "Pearls in my hair" digi.

I've watercoloured the image with distress inks co-ordinating the colours with a pretty background paper. I've cut out the image and mounted it onto the card and finished with pearl dots in the hair.
