TPS - Embellishment

This week over at The Paper Shelter it is all about Embellishments.

The image I have used this week is Moon Spell which I have coloured with Copics.
I made a mask to do the background with distress inks and then flicked over some metallic white water colour.

I kept the embellishments quite basic just framing with some bling and adding a couple of flowers in the Corner.

TPS - Shaped Card

So we are back today with a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter

I have used the image Unicornmania.

I have only made this bow card once before, it is from Sandras Scrapshop and really thought it was pretty, so started by cutting out the white blanks on my Silhouette Cameo.

Next I looked through my papers and picked a bunch of co-ordinating papers from a 12 x 12 paper pad I got in Hobby Craft - Sparkle & Shine.

I should have used white paper instead of card, as it is really hard to bend the bow using thick card, but got it stuck together eventually with a glue gun.

Once all my layers were glued together, I coloured my image in shades of blue and purple with my Copics, then added some tiny flowers and some pink leaves also cut on my Cameo.

I hope to see you enter our Shaped Card challenge and look forward to seeing your lovely work.

TPS - Happy Birthday

We have a nice easy challenge for you to all join in with this week over at The Paper Shelter

"A Birthday Card", so we would love to see all your beautiful creations.

I have chosen to colour up Olivia using my Copics.  As usual I colour my image first, then design my cards around that, probably not the best way as then I take ages finding matching papers etc.

Well I finally managed to find some after a good 30 minutes searching through all my Paper Pads.

I add a printed sentiment and some leafy die cuts and finished off with liquid pearls in the centre of all the flowers.

Don't forget to enter to be in with a chance of a fab prize.

TPS - Easter Time

Happy Easter everyone, not being a religious person it is all about the Chocolate and getting together with Family for me.

Unfortunately I have Type 2 Diabetes and started a strict no carbs, no sugar diet this weeek, so no chocolate eggs for me this year!!

So onto my card for our Easter challenge, I have used the fab Funny Easter Bunny

I have used Copics to colour him up and some nice pastel tones for the egg, I found a cute background Paper in my stash to finish off my simple Easter Card.

See you in the challenge blog 😁

TPS - Girl Power

We have a great theme this week over at The paper shelter - GIRL POWER.

My image is Trapezist, doesn't she look fabulous flying through the air.

I have coloured my image with Copics in shades of Green & Purple, I think it is a lovely combo.

I layered up some fab circle dies I purchased at Ally Pally a couple of weeks ago.

I recently sorted out all my dies, so remembered I had a feather that was perfect for this project along with various flowers from my stash.

Finished with a sentiment from Inkylicious.

To be in with a chance of a great prize, join us with your Girl Power project.

TPS - Let it be Spring

Its time for a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter .

I have spent a lot of time roaming through the woods his week, as my cat decided to take a ride under the bonnet of an electric car and ended up 13 miles away in the middle of the woods!!  Thankfully on our third search in the woods we found him and he is home and safe, so I thought my image this week was the perfect choice for our theme LET IT BE SPRING, she is Spirit of the Woods.

My image is coloured with Copics and I stayed with 3 main colours for this image to compliment the Pre-coloured background that comes with the image.  Green, Brown & Red.

I added some tiny flowers and butterflies to add some dimension to the card.

Below is my wandering Cat, Cloud, astonished but so happy we found him.

I look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations in our challenge.

TPS - For the Boy

This week at the Paper Shelter our theme is ONE FOR THE BOYS, so I have used the image Swag for my card.

The image has been coloured with Copics and layered on a striped paper from a great paper pad from the range, they are such a bargain £4 for a 12 x 12 paper pad and its great quality too.

I added a printed sentiment to complete my card.

We would love for you to join in our challenge over on the Paper Shelter challenge blog.

TPS - Shades of Blue

It's the start of a new challenge over at THE PAPER SHELTER and our theme this week is 'SHADES OF BLUE'.

I have wanted to colour this image for some time, but wasn't brave enough to do those long plaits,  half way through colouring I nearly scrapped her as I wasn't happy with the hair, hopefully they look ok now the image is finished.

The image is RAPUNZEL and she is coloured with Copics.

I trawled through my paper stash to find some blue papers, I seemed to have everything but Blue, finally I found some tucked away in a cupboard!!.

I would love to see you join us over at THE PAPER SHELTER.

TPS - For the one you Love

As Valentines Day is fast approaching, our theme this week at The Paper Shelter is 'For the one you Love'.

I have made a simple Valentines Day card for my Hubby using the image Enchanted Love.

I have coloured the majority of the image with Copics, but the red combo is Graph-it Markers, I think these reds blend so nicely.

I tried something different with the wings and hearts and used Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Flakes in Amber Glow, they are so sparkly but a right mess to use - perhaps that's just me, but I sparkled for days , lol.

The backing paper is from a really old pad in my stash.

Do come join your challenge with week, where there is always a chance for a great prize.

I look forward to visiting your blogs to see all your fab creations.

Happy New Year to everyone, I hope you all had a great festive break.

So new year, new beginnings, which is this weeks theme over at The Paper Shelter.
