I coloured his outfit blue as he wore a blue suit and her dress has shading in pink as I wore a white dress lined with pink - it's tricky to see, but it is there.

Patchwork Birthday


At the Crafters Café we have choices.  The theme is SCI-FI or PATCHWORK.  Take your pick!  See what the design team have made, and join us here: crafterscafeblogchallenge












Thanks to My Besties for the image provided, you can get it here:





Eyes coloured with Copics
Sentiment stamp: Ranger/Dina Wakely
PPaper from stash, a sprinkle of gems, black pen.


I chose to colour only the eyes of the image, I thought the image would disappear into the background if I coloured it  (sometimes I like to leave them uncoloured anyway).  The patched background is made using a stack'n'slash quilting technique.  The stamped sentiment is smudged with pale green in patches.  Stitching is added with a pen once it is all stuck down.  A sprinkle of gems falling into her hand.
It's very interesting; when I was making it, the top left square stood out, but in the photograph the centre square stands out more.

Rainbow Girl



Incy Wincy's theme this time is RAINBOWS GALORE (or at least 4 colours plus B & W).

Man of the moment

Mancards often take a backseat to our other creative efforts but I really like the challenge they provide.   Most men I know like quirky cards rather than sentimental ones.

Here is a CAS version.  I love this stamp set as you get to choose accessories (eg. this time a hat and monocle).

Bear masked and coloured with Distress Inks
