Christmas Tree Light Bulb

So here's a different image for Christmas this year from Limited Runs Digital Stamps !

This is my first time entering their Progressive Challenge and the image this month is called Christmas Tree Light Bulb.


Coloured with my copic markers and then used my Clear Wink of Stellar pen to put some sparkle on the filaments. (hard to tell from the pic).
Added some white gel pen flicks for a bit of character.
I decided to get my embossing folders out for this one.
This time I also used the negative side of the embossed image (the raised part of the image is glued to the matt) just to give it a bit of a muted look. It is a border type folder so I embossed the top and bottom of my cardstock, and then did a centre strip which just pokes out each side.
Instead of traditional Christmas wishes, I kept it simple and will add a sentiment inside the card when I write it up to send.
Dies used are Jaded Blossom and the sentiment word dies are from a magazine - had a cute tag with it.

I am entering the following Challenges:
  1. Limited Run Stamps - FBPC#7
  2. C.RA.F.T Challenge # 429
  3. The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge # 12
  4. Craftyhazlenuts Christmas Challenge - August
  5. Creative Knockout # 207
  6. Winter Wonderland

Ula Just a Bad Day!

Come and join in the fun with us HERE!


This week's Challenge over at our Polkadoodles Blog is Anything Goes / Summertime, Holidays.

I have used Ula Life's Collection for my journal page.



I started off with Ula Don't Listen black and white image which I coloured with Copic markers.
For my background on my journal page I used various paints, inks and stencils.
I have my base page, then using a page from an old novel, I created a matt for my troubled girl.
The saying is one you get from the kit and is referenced as U Sparkle 2 - it reads "It's just a bad day, not a bad life."

Now where do the holidays come in you ask???????
Ok, so no seashore beaches, etc here, but how many of you have a teenager (I have 2!!!) in your house?
You know when the holidays are here because all you seem to hear is how bad their life is, my friends are doing, blah, blah, blah, how come we never do anything? I'm bored, I have nothing to do! I can't wait to get a job and leave home!
Yep, so there in is my holiday theme - my journal page dedicated to my daughter!
That saying is sooooooooooo good, even my husband looked at it and said "Yep, got her in one!

I hope you like her and I look forward to seeing your take on the theme - why not have some fun with it like I did!

I am entering her I'm the following Challenges:
  1. The Crafty Addicts # 39
  2. More Mixed Media - Bright's
  3. Mix it Up Challenge # MIUCB#4
  4. Eclectic Ellapu - August
  5. Delicious Doodles Challenges - August

Wine O'clock Bow Card

I just had to show you my first attempt at the Bow Card!!!!!!


How seriously cool is that!!!

The template for it is by Sandra and you can buy it over at her blog here

I have coloured up my Wine O'clock image by Krista Smith Art using my copic markers.
I kept it very simple being my first one to get the feel of it.
I'm not sure wether to make it a Christmas Card or a Birthday Card yet .....or to just keep it to remind me I have the template in my files.

You make me Happy Nelly!

Time for another Blog Challenge  over at Oddball Stamps.


As always, our Challenge is Anything Goes with an Optional Theme
- this month's is "Life in Technicolor"



I decided to do an Art Journal Page again.
These images are so versatile in that they are totally ok to be used in everyday card making, scrap booking or mixed media without looking misplaced!

Coloured with copic markers and added some neon ones to make it even more Technicoloured!
How cute are her little Nymphs!
My background is just paints and distress oxide inks brayered on and dabbed onto and old novel page. I used an aqua pen to blend the oxide inks out a bit so the page added wasn't soo obvious.
I am no expert but I have to tell you that I am having fun creating these pages!

Oddball Bookworm Owl

Here I am with another Inspiration Post for Oddball Art Co's New Releases.


I am using the New Release Bookworm IMG395


Another uber cute owl and what an awesome sentiment to go with her!!!!!

I coloured her with Neon copic markers and then decided to step out of my comfort zone....deep breath! and create a mixed media canvas piece!
I like her a lot!

I used Gesso over a newsprint patterned paper (just a few spots peeking out) to give an added interest.
Various paints used along with Distress Oxide inks on the background of the Owl and the doily.
Still learning with this oxide ink but am happy with my effort so far.
I also used a few various stencils for my canvas background.
