Guest Designer at Morgan's Art World

This week I get to be the Guest Designer at Morgan's Art World.  What a great honour.  I got to work with the image called Tulip Fairy by Judy Mastrangelo.  The theme this week is Three of Something - I used three flowers.




I have used a patterned background paper from Rosie's Studio.  I coloured the image to match the background paper using copic marekrs.  I added some Stickles to the fairy wings.  The flowers were white and I coloured them with Distress Ink Worn Lipstick using a paint brush and adding some water to the Ink.  I added some pearls from Rosie's Studio to the centres of the flowers.

Christmas Day Memories

This girl looks like she is deep in thought - so I thought a Memories sentiment was perfect.

Morgan's Art World - Christmas In July
http://morgansartworld.blogspot.co.nz/2015/07/challenge-3-christmas-in-july.html

I have used a paper and two sentiments from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from Morgan Fitzsimons and is coloured with copic markers.  I added some Stickles to the trims on the clothing.  I also added some ribbon and used some blue textured cardstock for the matting

Flower Power

I bought a flower making tool a few weeks ago.  I had seen the video and it looked easy to use.  I think I need a bit more practice (and probably more patience waiting for the petals to dry!) but as this is my first attempt with these flowers I'm relatively happy with them.

I know my daughter's idea of fun as she was growing up was spending time with our cat.  Actually, she is no different now that she is older!

I have used a patterned paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft called "Needle and Thread".  The image is from Lia Stampz and coloured with copic markers E00, Y07, YR04, YR2, YR00, Y17, R59, E08.  I used a tool called "Bloom Impressions" and some paper from a scrap paper pack to create the flowers.  I added some pearls to the centre of the largest flower and Liquid Pearls to the two smaller flowers.

Christmas in Green and Gold

Inspired by the stripes in the image, I decided a striped background paper was just what this card needed!

I have used a striped paper from a Christmas paper pad by Sugar and Spice Studio.  I added some gold lacy ribbon.  The image is from Kenny K and is coloured with copic markers.  I added some Stickles - Diamond to the trims and some Glossy Accents to her eyes.  I also used some gold glitter domes.

Just keep swimming

Being a swim instructor, I have a lot of use for cards with an aquatic theme.  Occasionally, I have swimmers who move out of the region so it is good to have a card for them to encourage them to keep swimming in their new location.

Crafting With Friends - Anything Goes
http://crafting-with-friends.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/challenge-2.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft called "Sandy Toes" .  The image is from QKR Stampede and coloured with copic markers.  The sentiment is from Deedee's Digis.  I used some blue textured cardstock for matting and Spellbinders dies for the die-cutting.  I added some sparkly glitter domes as they remind me of water droplets.

I'm last minute again this week.  It has been one of those weeks where I wasn't totally well and didn't feel motivated to create.  This morning I got up with more enthusiasm so hopefully I'll have a better day today!

B is for.......


Balloons.  And nice shiny ones too!

http://onestitchatatimechallenge.blogspot.co.nz/2015/07/challenge-242.html

I have used a paper from Rosie's Studio with a couple of children on it.  The image is from Stitchy Bear Stamps and is coloured with copic markers picking up some of the colours from the background paper.  I added some Glossy Accents to the balloons to make them look just a little more realistic.  I used cardstock from Rosie's Studio for the matting and dies from Spellbinders along with some glitter domes as embellishments.
