Inkspirations Challenge #79

Hello everyone!

Before I get started on this weeks challenge particulars, I want to say a HUGE thank you to all my followers and commentors! I have now reached over 200 followers and I am just flabbergasted. It was only just a short time ago that I was giving a card away to the 150th follower. As most of you know my blogging has been….well, a little slim. I hope to turn this around this coming week and start blogging a lot more regularly. Things in my life have been a little difficult of late {I won’t go into particulars as there were quite a few challenges}, and I am starting to turn a new corner. But the support you guys give me boosts my spirits and makes me smile….a lot!

So I will be randomly choosing a subscriber to receive this weeks creation for the Inkspiration challenge. I will let you know the winner tomorrow……see good incentive to post again! LOL!

Okay, this week is a sketch

my submission…

I realised I haven’t played with the owl punch nearly enough, so I pulled it out. Isn’t she just the cutest?!

I have been seeing quite a few cards with circles in the back ground used as accents and I am loving it. Might do some more. More blog post gold! lol!

My Stampin’ Up! colour combo is Regal Rose, Soft Suede and So Saffron. Love this combo for girl birthday cards.

Now there is one more thing I would like to share with you all today. Last week I bought a new pet. He wasn’t an impulse purchase as we {my family} have been discussing it for a while. But we just were not sure what breed we would go with. But when I met this fellow I just had to have him.

So without further ado I introduce you to CHARLIE BROWN!

He is just the sweetest bird. He is hand raised and he gives the softest kisses and nibbles and I think he starting to copy my laugh!! LOL! He is a Rainbow Lorikeet and has the most amazing bright feathers. Under his wings is the most brightest red I think I have ever seen! In this shot he was entertaining us with his dancing on my crafting desk so his head is a little blurry. When I have some better pics I will post them.

Anyhoo! Don’t forget to check out the rest of the DT and post your submission over at the Inkspirations Challenge Blog. I would love to see what you have created.

Thanks for dropping by!

Inkspiration Challenge #78

Hey everyone!

It is colour challenge time!

I had a lovely play with the distressing essentials kit on this one. I actually made this card back in June and was my first play with the kit. I don’t think I did too badly…LOL! But hey, practise makes perfect. I love the end result though….and these colours are right up my alley! To colour my image I used and a Blender pen and my wonder crayons, I love these things. They are so easy to colour with.

Inkspirations Challenge #77

Hey everyone!

It’s Inkspiration time! unfortunately my crafting has not ‘got the flow’ if you know what I mean……probably not so let me explain. When I start a card I don’t always have the end result in my head. It starts with a colour or stamp set. Gradually different ideas form as I work as I think what would suit the look I want and also the element that would make the card ‘pop’. Some very good elements and accents come out of this process. This is what I mean about missing mojo. You may have heard me mention about this before. So at this moment that flow is not happening and I get stuck on things and I now rush the card to get it finished in time for deadlines {which I think I was late for anyway….bugger!}. Oh well! Hopefully it will come back to me. Wish me luck! LOL!

Okay so the sketch for this week is

and my submission

I don’t know I am just not feelin’ it! It’s a nice enough card but I know it’s not the best I could do with it! LOL!

It is our neighbours sons 1st birthday this weekend, hence the theme. I am sure they will love it.

I glittered the dragonflies wings with dazzling diamonds and made the red beetle nice and shiny with crystal effects! They were meant to make the card ‘pop’…LOL!

Inkspirations Challenge #76

Hey everyone!

Can you believe it’s Inkspiration time already?! Time is just flying by. I have lots to do and no time to do it in! LOL! This weeks challenge is a colour challenge and it was a bit of a toughy! I’m not a huge Poppy Parade player. But hey it’s not called a challenge for nothing.

Here’s the colours

I had a play with watercolouring, followed by Shimmer Painting!

It’s quite basic, but I don’t mind how it turned out. I did a little masking, a little colouring, and daubed the two main flowers with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint. I did use Baja Breeze….I promise! I coloured it lightly over the leaves….can you see it, well can you?! LOL!
