Ice Ice baby






Today's card was made for two challenges and I have decided to try out for the Saturated Canary  DT call.  I have absolutely no chance, but you have to be in it to win it as they say.  I have fallen in love with Kirsta's images.

The first challenge is for Colour Q.  I used the colours from the challenge form the basis of my card.

 
  
The second challenge is the sketch #7 from Sketch N Stash where we could choose any of the past sketches.  The image  ice cream and pickles  from Saturated Canary is brand new and I was very excited to colour her in.

Thank you for looking

True Blue baby I love you

.


Today's Card is for the Play Date Cafe challenge.
 The image I have chosen is Marry Me from Saturated Canary. I enjoyed colouring her it was a bit of challenge getting the shadowing right, but I ruin the dress colour when I went to go over it with the lightest shade to blend it. I accidently picked up the wrong colour a much darker colour, so I am not entirely happy with the finished product.  I will have to keep practising shadowing techniques.  I do like how the material of the dress has some movement.

Thank you for looking.

I'm a survivor...I'm not gon' give up

Hi everyone,

Today's card:

I had a colour scheme in mind, but didn't have a sketch or image to go with the colours, Rich Razzleberry, Perfect Plum, Sahara Sands and Very Vanilla.. Until I stumbled on a new designer Krista from Saturated Canary.  I have seen some of the images on Bev's blog but it didn't twig until I clicked on the her link to the Saturated Canary challenge blog # 19 anything goes.  Needless to say I bought a huge range of the digi's that are super cute and the above was a free image. The sentiment is from Flourish Fight like a girl stamp set.

I personally don't know anyone who has had breast cancer, but I have lost my Goddaughter to Luekemia and know people at work who have survived cancer and or battling other forms of cancer.  It is a hard fight.

Tell me Princess when did you last let your heart decide...

Today's card is for two challenges.  A new Challenge blog I stumbled apon called CR84FN, a colour Challange blog.  I was very excited to participate in this new challenge.

The second challenge is also a new challenge blog that I came across after admiring a card made for MOJO Mondays.  This blog suits me to a tee as I love layers that are clean and simple, which I feel all my cards are.    The challenge blog is Freshly Made Sketches.  

I coloured the image from Sweet November Stamps using copics although the scanner as made her dress more blue than the lavender I coloured. I added some sparkle with glitter glue and the borders were done using grey spica gel pen.

Thank you for looking.
