Desmond in Pink

Even though this digi is called Desmond the Dodo, I've decided to give him a pink tint.  Coloured with Promarkers with offcuts of Funky Hand papers that are no longer available.


I've used half pearls, embroidery thread from my stash and I handwrote the sentiment.  I've softened the background a little by adding a die cut vellum circle.

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme for the week is:

Resist Technique

This isn't something I've ever used but found a white crayon in the boys pencil box and decided to use it as snowflakes.  I literally ground the tip of the crayon into the card and then sprayed it with blue and silver ink.  It is actually quite sparkly in real life - the photo just doesn't show it.

Daring Card Makers Challenge - Under The Sea

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme this week is

Under The Sea

I've used a digi from the Winnie Mermaid Mermazing bundle and coloured her with Promarkers.  I created the background with my aqua markers - I scribbled them on a plastic folder, sprayed it with water and then pressed it onto my card, squishing it as I went and it created this watery background look!


I did two layers, waiting for the first to completely dry before I did it again.  The sentiment stamp is from my stash and I added some iridescent sequins and half pearls again from my stash.  And to finish, I added a dotted line of liquid pearls around the edge of the card.

Male Themed Gift Bag

I decided to make a male themed gift bag, basically because sometimes you just need to step away from the pinks and yellows!

I've used two sheets from the Heartfelt Christmas 8x8 paper pack and created a gift bag that would fit a cd or dvd.  I've punched holes in the top and threaded some garden twine through for the handles (I bought a rather large ball a while ago so have to use it up somehow!)

I then cut a tag using the Posydoodles Tags die from an off-cut of kraft card, again punched a hole in the top.


The sentiment has been cut using the Celebrate sentiment die - I coloured an off-cut of white card with Promarkers to match the greens on the bag.


To finish, I dotted a line around the edge of the tag with a black fineliner pen and added a half pearl.
