TPS Challenge 469 - A Shaped Card


So Summer is hopefully on it's way and we know how important Bees are, so I thought I would use The Queen Bee for this weeks challenge inspiration for The Paper Shelter, which is all about shaped cards.

She is so cute just chilling on her Flower.



I have coloured her with Copics, just sticking to three main colours, Yellow, Green and Black, although I used many different shades.

Her wings have been dusted with Clear Spectrum Noir sparkle pen, I wish it would show on the image, it look so sparkly.

I would love for you to come and join the current challenge over at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog the Theme is 'A Shaped Card', you can enter up to 3 times but one of these must be with a TPS image.

If you win using one of our images you can win a $30 gift certificate, or without a TPS image you can win 3 digital images of your choice.

The Paper Shelter Challenge 467 - A Birthday Card

Today I am so excited to share with my 1st card as a part of the Design Team for the The Paper Shelter.

I have been a TPS fan for many years and have accumulated quite the collection of their images, so it is a great joy to finally join all the other ladies on their Design Team.

Our challenge theme this week is 'A Birthday Card", so I have used this sweet fairy image called 'Did you ask for a Fairy?', I love a fairy so think this is a perfect image to start my TPS journey on.


As usual my image is coloured with Copics and all other papers, ribbons, embellishments are from my stash.

Now that you have seen my card, I would love for you to come and join the current challenge over at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog the Theme is 'A Birthday Card', you can enter up to 3 times but one of these must be with a TPS image.

If you win using one of our images you can win a $30 gift certificate, or without a TPS image you can win 3 digital images of your choice.


I look forward to seeing all of your lovely cards.

Dusk

Today I have been getting inky, I watched a tutorial by Tracey Dutton of Lavinia Stamps and thought would attempt a version.

I used Brushos and Distress Oxides for the background and Verafine Clair ink for the stamping, I also added a little white posca pen dotted around.  I struggled with the reflections as I was using the wrong paper and it was breaking down with the water colours I was trying to use.

My first card is using Lavinia Stamps, Wishing Tree and Toadstools.


For my second card I used Card-io stamps to create my scene.

Fairy and the Wizard

I have had several Paper Shelter images in my stash for such a long time and have never gotten around to colouring them, so due to a computer problem with work, I decided to print a few and have a play.

The card I am sharing today is an image called The Fairy and the Wizard, which I thought would be perfect for an Anniversary card for my Hubby.



The image is coloured with Copics and I added to the tree branch to make a tree as the image is so wide.

I used a mask I made on my silhouette cameo with some distress inks to create the dreamy clouds in pink and blue.

Her wings are shimmering with clear spectrum noir sparkle pen.

Finally, I matted and layered to create my card and added a stamped sentiment.



Thanks for visiting.

Time for Tea

I am sharing my second card today which is an image by The Paper Shelter called "Time for Tea", which I am entering into their Design Team Call, fingers crossed.

She is steampunk looking, but I wanted to use some Spring/Summer colours for her as Spring is almost upon us,  so went with a Pink/Green combo.


She has been coloured with Copics.



The backing paper is from Summer Breeze, with metal embellishments from my stash and a resin rose I made recently.



Thanks for looking.

My Time to Craft - Feminine

Sapphire

Wow, it has been so long since I posted and quite the year.

I moved house just before lockdown to be closer to work, only to be furloughed and then made redundant. I thought with all that time on my hands I would craft endlessly, but it seems to have had the opposite effect, I have barely coloured or made cards at all.

Now I am settled in a new job and new home, my MoJo seems to have come back - Yay!!

The card I am sharing today is actually an image I coloured some time ago, but never got around to putting her on a card.

The image is "Sapphire" by Ching-Chou Kuik and she is coloured with copics in my favourite teal colours.

As I was arranging my papers and dies to complete the card, I knocked over my coffee and typically it splashed onto my image, so after a quick clean up, I had to rethink my layout to cover up the coffee stain.

So here she is :)
