More Dilly Beans......

Loving the Dilly Bean images I created the following:
Coloured with Copics
Glossy accents for the eyes.
More glossy acents.... 

And more glossy accents and lots of glitter too!

Think these images will be featuring a lot more in my card making.
Check out the challenge at Scrapology!
Thanks for the intro Sue :)

Dilly Beans - Scrapology November card challenge

This months Scrapology card challenge has been set by Megan at Dilly Beans who creates the most amazing digi images.
The theme is Buttons and Bows.

Here is mine

I used a 6x6" Kraft blank from Craftwork Cards and paper from Authentique Christmas range.
The image was coloured with Copics and enhanced with Cosmic Shimmer drawing inks and glossy accents.

I added some red ribbon which I "dulled" down a little with an ink pad and some red buttons dressed with black thread.
The stems are a new Memory box die I got on a recent shopping spree with Lynn.
Why not pop over to Scrapology to see the DT's cards and enter the challenge.
Thanks for looking :)

And another Penguin

Just a quick post today, this is the last card (so far) in the Penguin set.

Again I used a brayer a la Barbara Gray and love the way it created shards of light,

Not the best photographs but you get the idea :)

More penguins......

The image here was created at the same time as the one in the "pink christmas" post.
This time I used some papers from MME's winter wonderland collection.
Another Martha Stewart punch was used to create the panel to which I added Turquoise gems.
I also punched the bottom edge of this card and added a dotty paper behind.
Loving this stamp, it's very versatile!

Pink Christmas

More cards made with recent purchases.....
Lynn got this stamp at the Glitter Pot en-route to Cardinal Colours crop, we just fell in love with it :)
The card they had on display was coloured in pink so I followed suit.
Papers are from my stash.
The baubles are cut with a punch and the cap is 1/2 daisy, they are decorated with Candi and punched shapes - the holly is a new Martha Stewart punch.

This is the same stamp I used recently by Lili of the Valley that I got at Ally Pally.
This time I created a mask and brayered it using a big'n'juicy inkpad.

As it was coated cardstock, colouring was not as easy as the ink just moves around but I was quite happy with the result.
The snow is a white signo gel pen which is fabulous.

Thanks for looking, hopefully have more to share soon.

Silly Games - November Scrapology Challenge - C is for Chicken Wire

Our Scrapology challenge this month is chicken wire.
Yes, chicken wire!
Real or faux, I have used real as below.
Our kit contains beautiful papers from My Minds Eye, The Sweetest Thing, Honey collection.
I started with Happiness Cheerful and gutted the centre. Cream puff bazzill was cut to 11" and added to the centre. My chicken wire is approximately 7x10" and was fixed in the first instance with 2 brads at the top. As it was very dimensional and didn't want to sit flat, I added some stitches where I knew it wouldn't show.
I cut the patterned panel from Perfect Best and added to the wire using foam pads and extra tacky glue. I had already cut out the bee which would have been under the photo panel for use elsewhere.
I also cut the honeycombe from the same sheet and added in the bottom right corner.
I am lucky to have a photo booth app on my phone so I printed my photostrip as below.
It's quite easy to do without too as you can mount small photographs onto white card.
I mounted mine onto Yukon gold bazzill and tucked it under the bee and word strips, covering the hole where I cut the bee from. He was then placed to the top right.

I punched and shaped some 6 petal flowers from chablis bazzill and the leftover Happiness Cheerful and added punched centres and stickles, these were placed in two areas on my page.
The leaves are also a new punch (woodware green) which I tucked in around the flowers.
I wrote and cut out some journalling strips and added them to the panel.
We were away for a weekend and had a mad few minutes taking pictures with the iphone app :)

The butterflies are a new Martha Stewart punch with stickle bodies.

Hop on over to the Scrapology blog to see the beautiful layouts by the DT and the original by the mega talented Lou Collins who we are proud to have on our team for a few months.
