ILPM's #214

I'm a day late with my post for I Love ProMarkers, sorry, but I've got a bit going on in real life at the moment.  We've got my elderly, only Aunty very ill in hospital, so as you can imagine my mind is elsewhere and my mojo just doesn't really exist at the moment.  I made this card a few weeks ago when I was trying to get ahead......
This weeks sponsor is Live Love Crafts with a prize of a £10 voucher to spend in their online store.

Here's my DT card.

The image is a digi by Sherri Baldy, BP's are from Nitwits and the flower was made with a punch.

The usual image close up.

Something Different

I've been wanting to try decorating a canvas for a long time, but I really can't bear to have inky hands...... So now that my  hubby brought me a box of rubber gloves from work, I can get as inky as I like.... lol.
Here's my first ever canvas.

Yes, I did start of with a completely blank canvas.  All the flowers were white and all the shapes were too and cut on my cameo.  I used 3 different colour shimmer mists and a bit of gilding wax on various parts.

I'm ready to make another now..... it's addictive!

Winter Wonderland - Kraft

The theme for this weeks challenge over on Winter Wonderland is 'Kraft', so we need to see either kraft paper/card or kraft colours on your entries.  Our sponsor is Kenny K with a fab prize of 3 digis of the winners choice.

This image is of course from our sponsor and is called Ice Skate Kate.  I've used ProMarkers to colour the image.  The BP is from my stash and I cut the snowflakes on my Cameo.  I got the sentiment from a friend.

Little Claires March Challenge

I thought I'd make a little tag for a change, and enter the present challenge over on Little Claires, where the theme is ' Make A Tag'.  The challenge runs until 11th April.

I cut the tag on my Cameo, used Distress Inks for the background, the stamp is of course from Little Claires.  The little leaves around the edge are stamped for a leaf stamp I found in my stash.  I added a little bit of colour to the image with ProMarkers.

Micro Beads

I've been playing with texture paste and microbeads again, I just love this technique.
I used a stencil from Imagination Crafts and inked through it with Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers.  

Give this techniques a try, I'm sure you'll love it too.

Born To Be Wild

This image is perfect for any motor biking fans.  You can buy and download it from Just Inklined HERE.  I've used ProMarkers to colour the image and added Glossy Accents to the lights.

A closer look at the image.

Micro Beads & Texture Paste

I've been blog hopping for the last couple of weeks and came across Eileen's blog.  I'd seen Eileens blog a while ago, but just couldn't remember the name of it, so couldn't find it again.  Well how lucky was I to stumble upon it again, via Lavinia Stamps.  Well now it's well and truely bookmarked..... lol.  Eileens work is just gorgeous and there's so much inspiration there, so thank you Eileen.

Anyway, I came across this technique while looking at Eileens blog and thought I'd give it a go.  
I inked through the stencil (from Imagination Crafts) with distress inks and dried it off a little with the heat gun.  Then placed the stencil back over the image, taped it around the edges to keep it secure, and spread translucent texture paste through the stencil, carefully removed the stencil and sprinkled micro beads all over it, just like we do glitter.  I did this over a plastic container cos oh do these little beads bounce! lol  Once dry I made it into a card, and this is the end result.  Such a shame I just couldn't get a brilliant picture of the beads, it really is lovely.

I really enjoyed doing this, so will be doing it again.
I'd like to enter this card into the present challenge over on Imagination Crafts where the theme is 'Imagination In Bloom'.  The challenge runs till 31st March.

La Pashe

This is just one of many fun images from the new CD by LaPashe, 'Flippin Families'.  The BP's are also from the same CD.

ILPMs #211

The theme for this weeks challenge over on I ♥ ProMarkers is a colour combo of 'Pink & Brown'.  Our sponsor for this one is Visible Image.

This image is a digi from the Katy Sue CD 'Fabulous Shoes'.  I've had this CD for ages and this is the first time I've used anything from it, terrible or what..... lol.  I added Glossy Accents to the dots on the mushrooms and used a MS punch for the border, sentiment is from Lily of the Valley, the BP I've had for such a long time and have no idea where it's from..... lol

Usual close up!
