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: Main…

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 pre…

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!! Natalie

DP2 challenge: Banners or tags

Good Morning!
Well it's 12 days to go, can you belive it?? This years seems to have gone so fast. Well today i have a few posts for different challenges, i made most of them a couple of days ago and was meant to post them yesterday, but i was away getting my last jab, ouch!
So to start with, here is my DP2 entry.
I went BIG! This is my tag i created. It uses the little urchin image. I also used traditional coloured papers and a large pointsettia, along with 2 metal holly leaves and one bell. 

Passion for promarkers: Celebrations

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.


Hanging Around { Post 101!}

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 …
