TPS - Two Colours

It's time for a brand new challenge over at The Paper Shelter and this week we would like you to use just two colours.

I knew I wanted to use my favourite combo of Pink & Turquoise.

The image I chose is The Mermaid & The Treasure  as I thought Turquoise would be great for her Tail.

It was harder than I thought to just use 2 Colours, but I managed by using Copics in the colour families RV & BG, which gave me quite a variety in Shades.





I kept the main card nice and simple as the image is so Colourful and just added a couple bow and a tiny resin Seahorse.

We would love to see your projects over at the challenge blog, where there is always a chance to win some prizes.


Thanks for looking and until next time xx

TPS - Rock Star

This weeks challenge over at  The Paper Shelter is all about Hobbies, jobs or Activities.

I have used the image Rock Star for my card, seems like a cool hobby to me!



I have used Copics in shades of Purple and Green to bring her alive.

I found some matching paper in my stash and used a sentiment I repurposed from a Birthday card I received.

Finally I added some die cut musical notes.

TPS Animal

I hope everyone is well and you have enjoyed the recent hot weather.  Today is new challenge day over at The Paper Shelter and our theme this week is ANIMALS.

I have chosen to use an image called The most adorable Jellyfish, it is such a sweet image.


I have used Copics to colour my image and added come bubble die cuts and a sweet Turtle.

I also added a tiny resin seahorse that I made.

I added some clear Spectrum Noir Glitter pen to the Jellyfish, but as usual it is impossible to see in a photo, but it is so sparkly.

TPS Back to School

Wow, where did the Summer holidays go???

Just a couple of days until my Son starts secondary school, I think I am more anxious than he is at the moment, I don't think he realises what a big change it will be, but I am sure he will smash it.

So with that in mind our challenge over at The Paper Shelter this week is BACK TO SCHOOL.

I created my card with the new image A Lovely Girl and she is coloured with Copics.




I found some old paper that looked like some kind of school report, so I sat her on this and then layered with Green card and some Lilac and green patterned paper from my stash.

Finally I added some flowers, a star and a sentiment.

I look forward to seeing all your lovely entries for the challenge over on the Paper Shelter Challenge Blog
Where you can win some great prizes.

TPS Baby Drago

Today I have made a side opening card using a new image from the  Paper Shelter , called New Born Baby Dragon, he is so sweet just popping out of his shell.

I have coloured my image with Copics and again I have used some wall paper sample for my Background.
I have kept the card quite plain and just added some ribbon from my stash and some left over patterned paper from a previous project for the inside.

TPS Challenge 477 - Going Digital

Hi everyone, todays card is for the latest challenge over at The Paper Shelter, our theme this week is GOING DIGITAL, so I have used the digital image called Follow Me on Fairybook.

My image is coloured with Copics and I have used a background technique from one of the monthly classes over at Kit & Clowder, which involved drawing in and colouring the background.

My silver backing paper is actually a wallpaper sample, they make great backgrounds and you can grab them free at most DIY shops, I happen to be decorating, so I have a whole bunch of great papers I can now use.

The other papers are cutoffs from previous cards.

I finished with a matted sentiment the stamp is from Card-io.



Do come and join our weekly challenge over at The Paper Shelter,  you will have a chance to win a great prize.

TPS Challenge 475 - Things with Wing



It is time for a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter and the theme this week is THINGS WITH WINGS.

Originally I had printed a fairy image and was just about to colour her up, when I remembered the Dragon images and in particular Queen of Dragons, which reminds me of my favourite character from Game of Thrones - Daenarys Targaryen the Mother of Dragons, so I just had to swop.

My image is coloured with Copics and the background is done with a cloud stencil and distress inks.

I layered up with some papers from my stash and a dandelion die cut I already had cut.




Now its your turn, pop over to the challenge blog for lots more great inspiration from my Team Mates and don't forget there are prizes up for grabs if you win.
