Christmas Night

I created this scene by taking two of the corner drawings from Lilly-Boo's Boutique and joining them together. I put them into a photo-editing program and flipped one of the images and then placed one behind the other. Once I had them overlapping in a suitable position I grouped the images and then resized them to fit in a 8" x 8" black card from Craftworkcards.
I coloured the images in which were from the Christmassy Corner Collection over at Lilly-Boo's Boutique with Promarkers imaganing the light source to be fairly central.
I then found on my Cricut Christmas cart the moon and the santa sleigh. I cut the moon from some scrap yellow card and then the sleigh is cut in Bazzil Black Tie and outlined with a shadow cut in white.

Rose Invitation

Just a quick post of an invitation I have done for a friend's daughter's 13th Birthday. Her name is Rose. Inside was the details of the day with a tear off portion for the reply. The Roses are from the Indie Cricut Cart and just have the base and one layer of petals, highlighted with glitter and the centres are silver card candy stuck with silicone glue.

Callum's Birthday

Well this was a little bit of an adventure of techniques etc. My son's best friend is having a birthday on Saturday, he is the youngest boy in his year and a totally cheeky little chappy that you can't help but like! This image from Lilly-Boo's Boutique. reminds me so much of him and he pedals around on his bike to the park and to visit friends within his village.
Lilly-Boo's images are great to work with and great value. £1.99 gets you a set of six images that are totally resizeable and could be computer coloured as well as coloured by hand, the choice is yours. Do pop in and have a look at her images there are a couple of freebies so you can try your hand.
The recipe for this card was to colour the image using Promarkers and then cut out the image (still need to work on this cutting out thing!). I then cuttlebugged the 'for a day' and inked it over with a blue inkpad to tone with the backing paper which is from a nursery pad for boys. I also inked a matt white piece of card with the same blue ink pad and also a yellow inkpad and then embossed it with the Happy Birthday cuttlebug folder and pieced the mats together on a white card base. The cut out boy and bike I put on with dimension pads. I did consider in my minds eye using silicone and trying to distort the shape of the front tyre but I thought that might look better in my minds eye and not work out in reality, so being short of time I did not take the risk I played safe.
I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, thanks for dropping in.
