Professor Dummkopf

There are some great men's digi stamps over at Dr Digi and this one is called Professor Dummkopf.  I've used a lot of kraft card and a black sharpie and black fine liner pen!  All but the card base are offcuts of card from previous projects and some are recycled from Graze boxes.

Image has been coloured with Promarkers and I hand wrote the sentiment.

Made for a work colleague who looks rather like the image but without the lab coat!

Daring Card Makers - Animal Antics

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and I'm the host for this one!  The theme I've set is

Animal Antics

So feature an animal on your card - the funnier the better!

I've used this cute image from Tiddly Inks - Happy Baa Day To You which I've coloured with Promarkers and coloured pencils.  The papers are from my stash and I thought they went so well with the image.  Buttons too are from my stash and I had no issues trying to find colour matches!

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 15 - Moonflower

It's time for a new Colour Crazy challenge and this week we are sponsored by Moonflower.  The theme as always is

Anything Goes

I've used the cute Gina Caribe digi from the sponsor, coloured her with Promarkers plus watercolour pencils for the background.  For once, I matched the colours to the papers I already had in my stash as I'm trying to use up all the bits and bobs that I have.

Papers are Echo Park, Early Bird and I found a perfectly matching green ribbon in my stash to make a lovely big bow!

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Professor Wiggingson

Here is Professor Wiggingson from Dr Digi wearing some rather dapper threads!  Had great fun colouring him up with Promarkers.  Papers are from the now retired Funky Hand and I must have had them in my stash for quite some time so thought it was a good time to use them!

It's time for a new Colour Crazy Challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

This week we don't have a sponsor so its a blog candy giveaway!  I've used this rather cute image from Knitty Kitty Digi's - The Foxicorn which I've coloured with Promarkers.  I found some oddments of ribbons in my stash and it matched the Foxicorn colours perfectly!

Polkadoodle Challenge - Anything Goes or Girly

It's time for a new Polkadoodle challenge!  The theme is as always

Anything Goes

The DT were challenged to make something Girly.  I've used the Miss Winnie die plus the gift from Winnie Chic. I've also used a tiara and wand die that I found in my stash plus sentiment dies from Clearly Besotted and the name has been made with a Cuttlebug die.

All the papers are from the Bumper Cardstock pack.  I've used one of my own number templates and added a dotted line of liquid pearls around the edge.  The card was for one of my nieces!

Good luck with the challenge.  I'd like to enter the following:

A quick card to share today using Nessie from Dr Digi.  I've coloured her up with watercolour pencils and added an embossed background with a Cuttlebug folder, using an off-cut of the same card I've used for the base.

The buttons and embroidery thread are from my stash along with the little dino charm.

Daring Card Makers - Let's Do Digi

It's Friday, 9am so time for another Daring Card Makers Challenge!  The theme this week is

Let's Do Digi

So digi papers, digi image or a combination of the two!!

I've used two different digi images - the background is a no longer available stamp from Jelly Park and the female is from Kenny K - Happy Hour which is also no longer available.  I've coloured them both with Promarkers, added sparkle to the glass and added the pavement myself.

The bags are made from offcuts of brown paper with real handles (both recycled Primark bags!) and I've added tissue paper inside for depth.  For those with keen eyes, the bag logos are Manchester City and I kept the colour theme throughout as the card was for a fan!

The sentiment dies are from Clearly Besotted.  Good luck for the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 13 - Polkadoodles

It's Friday so its time for another Colour Crazy Challenge!  This week we are sponsored by Polkadoodles and I've used this very cute Horace digi stamp and coloured him with Promarkers.

I've used a Polkadoodles stitched circles die and then ran it through an embossing folder for the background and the sentiment was created on my computer.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
