Video : Watercolour Wishing – Colour with ‘U’

Today I felt like colouring with my Inktense pencils, Mr Mojo has been long gone and I’ve cleaned and tidied as much as I want of my room, so I finally sat down to colour.  It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to colour this Purple Onion Designs image and she really is soo sweet.  I kept the card real clean & simple, added some sparkle and called it done.  I decided to film as I created so you could watch the process.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

Mini Penguin Frames!

Catching up on some publication shares and I had so much fun making this card, but I gotta say that it took me a while to get here.  I knew I wanted to use the small frame stamp from Purple Onion Designs…  but then it got a bit squidgy….   then I remembered this card that I made and it was easy from then on, although this one is a little brighter.

Happy Mother’s Day!

I love flowers on a Mother’s Day card, I know it’s predictable but isn’t that okay, especially when they are as stunning as these Magnolias from Altenew!  I decided it was time to get out my Inktense pencils again and my colouring was inspired by Marika and if you haven’t visited her before I suggest that you click right HERE she is amazing!

I was lucky enough to have this card published recently in the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine.

Forever Fabulous Vellum!

I haven’t had a chance to make a card for way too long now, it’s been a very social month  here and while you are reading this I am off camping at the beach, so fingers crossed the weather is kind.  I am definitely having crafty withdrawals, but do have a card to share.  It’s a publication for the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine, this vellum is so nice (I accidentally bought the wrong one) it has these fab flecks in it!

Blooms with a sad farewell.

Today is a sad day for me as it’s my last post with the DT with Purple Onion Designs.   So I would just like to say a big thank you to Michele, you are incredible and  have a fantastic and supportive team and I know I will continue to be inspired by all of you.

For my final card I knew it had to involve some flowers and these little Blooms are stunning, so I kept it very clean & simple.

Just in Time for Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

I made these cards months ago as they were for a publication call with the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine, but I think they are my favourite Chrissy cards for this year.  I really like the simplicity of the first and then the bokeh colours, well they kinda make me smile, especially with the shimmer of the sequins.  I hope that today you find a smile and get to spend some time with some fun people and of course eat-a-plenty!
