More S.C cards - what do you think???

Hi Again,
Seeing as i dont think i'll be able to post again before christmas, i thought i would show off the rest of my cards using Saturate Canary digis.

Firstly,
This is Frizzy Jinx. When i first saw this digi, i thought of these hideaway papers. There very hippy like and free spirit, and i think of her as that.
I think her frizzy ginger hair realy suits her too!
PROMARKERS USED:
Ginger / spice {hair}
Satin and blush {skin}
Canary
Lime green
Tan
Pumpkin

Next,
Teresa the princess. I chose my up, up and away paper pad. That paper pad makes me think of creativity, doodling and dreams.
I added plenty of flowers and a charm in the shape of a crown that says Princess.

PROMARKERS USED:
Duck egg
Tan
Pale blue
Lime green
cocoa
Chestnut
Satin/blush


Winnie and her caravan. I think if i could choose a image which was most like me it would be this one. It reminds me of summer days spent at the beach with the caravan. Again i used my up, up and away papers and even made bunting out of leftovers.
PROMARKERS USED:
Mainly same as the last card, but for hair, buttercup and pale yellow and for the van, pastel beige, using slate for the wheel.

Going Gypsy,

Now, if i could some this up in one word, it would be vibrant! Look at the colours! Anyway, this is dancing gypsy. The papers i used were from simply homemade magazine and are called Gypsy sister {Well suited huh?! } The papers match realy well with this image. I only used one paper on this card, as well as some bright magenta coloured ribbon and some pretty petals.
PROMARKERS USED:
Oatmeal and blush {skin}
Cocoa and chestnut {Hair}
Cyan
magenta
Maroon
ivory

So what do you all think?? I hope you like them as much as me.
Before i go i hope everyone has a merry little christmas!

3 Days till Christmas Eve

Good morning!
The weekend is drawing closer, and i get more excited by the day!
Todays post is another Saturated Canary card made with one of my 3 new digis.


Cute, huh?
This is Hayley and Harley. I love this image as i think the piggy is so cute! I love pigs!
For this card i went for a black and pink theme with just a tiny bit of green in the mix.
As usual, the image is coloured with promarkers, which i'll list below. I matted the striped 4x4 peice of paper onto black card and turned it so it looked like a diamond.
I added card candy to the bottom left and top right corners.

PROMARKER LIST:
Rose Pink
Slate
Dusky Pink { For the piggy!}
Lime green
Blush
Satin

I used the slate instead of black so you could see the lines of her hair and things, whereas if i had covered it in black you wouldnt of seen it.

I hope you like my card as much as i do, feel free to leave a comment and tell me what you think.

Kraft- y Colour in!

Good morning!

Only 4 days left till christmas eve, woohoo!!! I've finally finished wrapping my gifts, as well as helping my mum with hers, now all i have to do is wait a couple more days to make my gingerbread men and chocolate truffles. Yum!

Anyway, this is not a christmas post, its a Kraft one.
Since looking a few months ago at Dorcas's blog and seeing her stamped images on kraft, i have wanted a go. I thought i would have to buy a certain type of pencil but i was wrong! Just look.......

This is my first attempt. I used the dancing Gypsy digi from Saturated Canary and printed her onto a 6x6 peice of Kraft.
But the kraft wasnt bought in a packet, it was a roll in some wrapping paper! So you could say i recycled!

I coloured the image with some watercolour pencils i had had for years and used to use them lots before i became a promarker fan.
I was suprised how easily the colour showed up.

The papers are from first edition Hideaway collection and flowers from my crafters companion pretty petals stack.

Anyway, i will leave each post with this message..
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Saturated Canary Card

I used a 6x6 cream coloured card and backed the gypsy sister papers onto indigo card. I also did the same to the image. It is coloured in with promarkers. I added a matching sentiment and some wooden material flowers in the corner.

TIP: When colouring skin, if you want more of a tan look, use oatmeal around the edges of the face and where you want shade and then used blush for the rest.

Now i can go and use my two new digis!!

Passion for promarkers: Celebrations

Hello!

My creation for the promarkers celebration challenge is this....

It is a giftbox for a flower girl/bridesmaid.
I remember when i was a bridesmaid, 8 years ago, i was given a gift for being a special person on the day, so i created this box.
The lavendar coloured box came from a gift my mum got a while ago and she allowed me to use it for this project.
I layered silver mirri, purple card and the lavendar coloured paper on and added a large thick ribbon and bow.
The tilda image is matted on the same card as the base, coloured in with promarkers.


I added three pearls to the front too.
Im sure any flower girl/ bridesmaid would be pleased to recive this.
I also made a card to match.


Natalie.

Hanging Around { Post 101!}

Hello!

Well, christmas is just around the corner and the tree is up! YAY!
For christmas this year, i decided to make some of my own gifts, so i have, starting with this:
Not much is it? Well you'd be right, its a single peice of grungeboard. It suprised me how flexible it realy was to be called board. But with a lick of paint and some decoration, i created:
TA DAH!
Now for everyone who watched the last Joanna Sheen Shows, you would of seen this kind of thing be made. I painted it soft peach and once dry { 20 mins at most! } I started to decorate.
I printed out a backing paper, decoupage sheet and caligraphy sheet from the Jane Shasky cd rom.

This is my decoupage

This is the caligraphy topper. I also added three buttons and a shovel charm to the raffia ribbon.
I made this for my aunt and uncle who im sure would love this in their kitchen.

That isnt the only one though, oh no, i created another one for my friend Charlotte.
This time i used the Joanna Sheen Enchanted Dreams cd rom and printed off a topper sheet and backing paper. I painted this one in a metalic blue { Oooh } and then added the paper. { By the way, the papers are stuck with pinflair glue gel, flattened rather than lumps.}

I sprayed my topper with crafters companion glitter spray to make it shiny and added three colour matching flowers in the bottom corner, i used silver card candy for the middles.
Then using some alphabet a added this, which eas already glittery.

So thats it, easy.
