Gingerloft Red, White and Blue

Its time for another Gingerloft challenge, where does the time go! This fortnight the theme is Red, White and Blue, here's my card

You can find my fabulous balloon image here its coloured with promarkers.  My background is watercoloured using using Distress markers, my papers are from my stash, I think they were magazine freebies.  My sentiment is Papermania with some dots of promarker.   My balloon dies are Memory box and I think my swirl is Marianne, I have at least 475 swirl dies so I'm starting to lose track!

Please pop along  here and see the rest of the DT makes.

Simply Create Too - Colours of your flag challenge

Its time for a reminder for Simply Create too, the current challenge is Colours of your flag and heres my card

My main image is a stamp from Stampavie (I feel a new obsession brewing!) shes coloured with Distress Markers and matted on a Kanban mat with dots of flexmarker to make a doilie effect.  My background paper was a magazine freebie, I love my freebies! My swirl dies are Marianne and my sentinent tag is Papermania.  My flower is handrolled from a cArt us die.

Blue and white is one of my favourite colour combos so I was delighted at the theme for this challenge.  Scotland is going through an exciting time just now as in 2014 we will decide if we should be independent from the rest of UK

Character tag and card, Stampavie and Visible Image

A couple of makes today, they are quite similar so I thought I'd stick them in the same post and also I'm too lazy to do two posts!

First a cheeky wee tag

The background is Prima, my pouty girl is Stampavie coloured with distress inks as is my rose from Visible Image.  My sentinent is also Visible Image free with this months Craft Stamper.  My borders were also freebies with Papercraft Inspirations and the gems and ribbon are from my stash.

Next a card

I could almost copy and paste this!  Background paper is Prima, main image coloured with distress inks is Visible Image as is my sentinent.  Frames came free with Papercraft Inspirations and gems are from my stash.

Not only am I lazy in my posting im lazy at picking my items to use in my projects! Lets call it "economising" lol.

I would like to enter them in the following challenges

Gingerloft challenge Tie a yellow ribbon

Its time for a new challenge at Gingerloft and what better way to brighten up a project than a gorgeous yellow ribbon?

Heres my DT inspiration, I hope you like it

Ive kept it quite simple as adore this wonderful Gingerloft Digi which you can find here, I coloured it using promarkers/flexmarkers.  My die cuts are Craft too and my yellow ribbon is American crafts.  

Sometimes its easy to overload the embellishments, but in my opinion when you have a gorgeous image which you want as your focal point simple elegance is the way to go.  Its actually more scary for me to do a simple card than one covered with embellishments!  I hope I have done Tamis gorgeous digi justice.

Heres the link to the challenge where you will find amazing work from my wonderfully talented DT teammates.

Fitztown challenge Female

Its time for a new challenge at Fitztown and this week the theme is female, here's my DT card

My background papers are Prima.  My image is by the talented artist Morgan Fitzsimons.  I've coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers using a limited quite neutral colour scheme.  My leave dies are from Double do and my flowers are hand rolled from a die from cArt us dies.  The two buttons are from my ever expanding stash.

I would love you to pop along to the Fitztown store here to see the amazing digis and cds available.

You will find the Fitztown challenge here and check out the wonderful inspiration from the DT,  this is sadly my last challenge with Fitztown and I wish the DT all the best and I will miss working with the wonderful images.

Gingerloft - Critters of the Sea

It's time for a new Gingerloft Challenge and the theme this fortnight is Critters of the Sea.  I decided to make something a wee bit different this time.

I used the fab digi tropical dolphin which you can find here.  It's a shame I couldn't get a decent photo to do the dolphins justice.  I coloured them with flexmarkers, covered them with iridescent glitter glue then layered on glossy accents.  They look so sparkly and shiny!  My camera just couldn't pick it up (nothing to do with the camerawoman I'm certain!)

I used xcut dies to cut the sea in different shades of blue for my background and tag and some gems from my stash for a bit of bling

I can't wait to see the entries for our fab theme.
