Big Girls Bloomers

Hi Everyone
I'm trying my best to keep my promise to blog a bit more.  Sometimes by the time I've uploaded to instagram, pinterest and facebook I am all typed out and have quite literally run out of steam
Anyway, here's one I've just finished.  The bried was for a 'fun card' so I opted for

I coloured her up using Spectrum Noir Markers.  (I'll list them below)
Papers are from Poundland.  Have you noticed they are stocking some a4 pads now?  Not all of them are that nice but I always have a quick look now just incase.
A selection of dies and a sentiment or two finished it off
colours used: BT5 BT8 BT9  GT1 GT3   EB4 EB5 EB7  FS1 FS4 FS6

So, I'm off now to watch a bit of telly whilst I colour up another image or two,
Thanks for popping in.
Happy Crafting

Birthday Bottle


It's sneaky peek time :)
Coming your way very soon are these fabulous foil transfers from Crafters Companion
Sara showed them  off  over on HSN already and they went down a storm

Now, I am in no way an expert in this field (I wasted too many ahem quite a few) but I got there in the end.

I thought they would look good on this bottle, and they do. Pic doesn't do it justice really.

Two coats of chalk paint, then the foils and a coat of spray varnish was all I did to this apart from adding the ribbons and flowers at the end.

I absolutely love how this turned out.  So when they finally hit the store I'll be adding them to my basket and having a wee bit of a home decor crafty day or two, maybe even three as some of my teamies have given me some fabulous inspiration for them.

Thanks for popping in. Have a good old crafty day

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
