the base card is just a plaine white which i have coloured with Broken China Distress ink, then mat with a pretty digi paper from Cuddly buddly,
then another piece of card coloured with the Distress ink, and the image which has been coloured with Spectrum noir pens and pencils, was mat onto this piece, then i glittered the wings with glamour dust. its then finished off with some lace and gem trim flowers and a doily, all avaliable from That Craft Place, also just a mention if you are loving your colouring, give their super smooth a try its beautiful, i havent had any bleeding at all even with the really juicy spectrums, fab price too .

guy everyone, 
its time for a new challenge at

and what other theme at this time of year but 
Christmas

well i thought id give it a little twist lol


you know me by now guys not quite normal lol

i just adore this little lady from That craft Place Etsy store
betsy boots , Witchy poo

she has been printed out on the fab super smooth card from That craft Place, this card is a dream to colour on, once she was coloured with the Spectrum noir pens i went over adding depth with the Spectrum noir pencils.
next i cut out some tiny christmas baubles on my Craft Robo, coloured them (i tend to cut everything in white and then colour to match the project) i printed the cat and cauldron, and fussy cut, then cut some candy canes on the Robo, once they are all cut coloured ans the canes assembled, oh and mustnt forget the holly! everything was covered in TTriplethick gloss glaze,( also available form lisa).
then it was just a matter of finding some lovely papers to go with the image matt and layer and once the embellishments had dried i just had to add them to the card.


the inside is just mat with a piece of matching backing paper and then a sentiment cut on the robo.

i hope you like it and come join us in the challenge, maybe you can put a little spin on the christmas theme too

hey guys
well i said i would show you a the things iv been working on, or should i say playing at lol
a friend of mine gave me the idea for this one, so i made her one.
now i know nothing of harry potter having never seen or read any of the films or books so this was all done from pics on google. everything is made from paper, clay or cardboard.


this is the finished cabinet 



on the top shelf we have harrys letter of acceptance, some spell bottles, a map ( dont tknow the name of it) and a book,.these both open and are tiny replicas so as exact as i could get them.


on the middle shelf we have a history of magic book, a wand, a snitch, 
and some scrolls (which do open)


on the bottom is a spell cauldron and more scrolls 
&
monster book of monsters



sitting on top is a finding hat, and a dobbie? i have to say my sculpting leaves a lot to be desired but i did kind of fall in love with this odd little guy even if he is ugly lol .


then we have hedwig, this poor guy was finished and sat drying on the window ledge and my cat took a dislike to him! and i had to do a bit of a rescue on him....


and of course we had to have his broomstick.

the cabinet itself is made from cardboard saved from deliveries, accetat and the hinges are from tim holts grungboard, the keyhole i cut on my craft robo a few times and layered then it was all painted 
in acrylic paint, and finished with a couple of coats of varnish.

i hope you like it guys i had a lot of fun playing with this .

crafty hugs xx

Hello my lovelies
well i am here today to tell you about the new
That Craft Place challenge

theme 
Anything goes

sponsored by 
All Dressed Up

here's mine



this little girl is so cute dont you think, im practicing a lot with my colouring, and loving it, still loads to learn and improve on but its so relaxing to just lose yourself in a  couple of hrs colouring, ( i just cannot get the hang of leaving white bits though !)

So it a simple mat and layer and the image topper which I coloured using spectrum noir pens and then the pencils on top, the pencils really do add depth and vibrant colour.
I added some of the fabulous flowers and a bit of bling both available from That Craft Place .

Now just a little side note to apologize for neglecting my blog somewhat of late, I had kind of lost confidence in my craft, iv given myself a bit of a talking to and as you can see I had a little play and changed my blog a little , made myself a new banner (quite pleased with myself).
So anyway iv been playing and have made a couple of things just for fun which I will share with you all over the next couple of days.

Now come on and get your entries in :)
