About Me

My photo

I am a stay at home mum of one gorgeous 4yr old boy, & he certainly keeps me on my toes. I have crafted in some shape or form all my life, I have always loved to draw & paint & I used to do custom murals, back when I had the time lol. I also crochet & scrapbook, but my biggest passions are card making & doing altered canvases. I have been selling my cards for 3yrs now & my canvases & plaques for about 2yrs. It still gives me a buzz that someone wants to buy something I have created.
I will be posting some examples of my work here but you can see & buy any of my work on my facebook business page, I hope you like it.

Just Inspirational Challenges - SSS

Good morning blogland, it's time for another challenge from 


& this week it's team B's turn
We have been sponsored this week by the talented 

 ,who have given us some fab digis to play with for this challenge & are also offering a
prize of  4 digi images to the lucky winner.
Here is this weeks inspirational photo


When I saw the photo I knew exactly image I wanted to use - My Fair Lady
& here is my make xxxx


I knew I wanted a larger card, so I made a 7.5"x7.5" card base, I used my score board to emboss the front of the card in a crisscross pattern. I also embossed the mat  & the digi itself. I made some flowers & dipped them in glitter & also glittered the flourish. I added some pearls to the butterflies & larger pearls to the embossed card base.

I took my inspiration from the colours of the photo as well as using flowers & tried to give it an elegant feel.
I had real trouble with this card as I am so unused to using so little colour & I didn't want it to appear flat or drab. I hope you like my make :)
Here is a close up of the coloured image


She has been coloured with promarkers (I forgot to write a list of colours used, but it was the pale yellows, saffron etc.)
Thanks for stopping by & I appreciate any comments you'd like to leave.
