Colorista Dark

Hiya Everyone
I've some fabulous new products to share with you this morning.  I was blown away with the new launch from Crafters Companion.  Colorista Dark 6x6 pads,  Exquaite Florals and Under The Sea.  The Colorista Dark Tags are a mixture of both and then the most fabulous metallic pencils to use with them.  These really are yummyand colour up a dream.
These pads have spot UV which outlines on magnificent patterns for the adult colourist.  Basically the images are raised, like heat embossed but on a higher level.
The lauch was on Hochanda last night and will be shown again today

If you get the chance be sure to tune in.

Here's a couple of my makes. 
This was from the tags books.  As soon as my DT package arrived I knew exactly what I was doing  with these.  For some reason they were shouting 'banner' at me

Next up I have a card, plain and simple to show of these fabulous images. 
This literally took around thirty minutes to make.  They really do colour up quickly.

So, that's it for today girls.  Do have a peep at the shows if you have a spare minute it will give a much better insight to these fabulous prodcuts than I ever could,#
Happy Crafting

Sad to be saying goodbye

 It's time to for me, Anne,  to share my last Design Team card for the very lovely MiRan.   She has decided to close the blogs and stop drawing for the moment, but I am sure we will see her beautiful artwork again soon, just in a different form.
Art by Miran's Facebook group, Challenge Blog and Showcase Blog will be closing its doors at the end of February.   Gutted.com
I am sure going to miss desiging with these gorgeous girls and  would like to take this opportunity to thank MiRan for allowing me to be part of her Design Team and for her generousity, allowing us any of her images at any time.  Yes, you read that right!!!

So here it is, using the gorgeous With Love Lucy
blooms from  my stash 
Thanks so much for stopping by, have a good old crafty day

Kisses for you

Hiya Crafters
Was the Valentine Fairy good to you all yesterday?  Or, like us, is it all a bit ho hum?  We do exchange cards and a wee gift but since it's the hubsters birthday too we usually celebrate that
Anyway, I did make him a card.  A huge one - 10x8 and it took an age to colour but I love how it turned out

I'm guessing you all recognise the Teddy Bo image.   I coloured  with Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Original markers and a tiny wee hint of Sparkle pen on those hearts.

colours used:
Illustrators : Henna, Leather, Rose,  Earth Brown, Pecan, Periwinkle, Cobalt and Brown Grey
Markers: BG1 BG2 IG1 IG6 IG8 IG10 EB7 FS2 TB7 TB9 DR3 DR4 DR5 DR7
clear sparkle pen

Thanks for popping in.  Happy Crafting

Shy lane

Good Morning Crafters

Well so far so good.  I am keeping up with the blogging.  It is only January right enough but 
never say never.

It's my turn to hopefully inspire you over at Art by MiRan and today's card is showcasing
the lovely Shy Lane 

She's a cutie patootie for sure.  I love her wee pig bag.  I can see loads of little girls going for this style
The papers were odds and sods from my stash as was the huge bloom and brad.
She's coloured up with copic markers and a wee touch of pencil for some extra shading.
Don't forget to visit the  shop to see all the wonderful images ArtbyMiran  has to offer!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy Crafting

Floral Delight

Hi Everyone
I'm trying to keep to my word and do a wee bit more blogging than I did last year.  Hasn't Facebook, Instagram and the like really taken over from blogger.  Not to mention the horrid changes they've made on here.  It really is an effort for me now

Anyway, enough of the moaning. Let's get onto my card for today.  I thought I would do Mother's Day, just because .......

 stamps  Sparkle n Sprinkle
 Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils - Florales - Rose Red
Sarah's Signature Collection Floral Delights Ornate Trellis
sentiment- made on pc

I love how this turned out.  It's not often I make a card that doesn't have 'a person' on it but there's a first for everything isn't there.
Thanks for popping in.  Happy Crafting
