Nearly the end of February!

Gosh the time just flies by, I guess that happens to all crafters lol!  I have a cute little card today with an image from Dilly Bean.  Gotta love them!  The challenge this week is love and hearts, and this image captures that nicely.

Happy New Year

Another year over and some new beginnings, not many new year resolutions though!
My card today is for a dear friend and heres hoping she likes it.  Dilly Bean Stamps are having a challenge with the colours, green, purple, and gold, so thought I would make my card around that theme.  Not colours I would normally think of putting together, but now looking at them I quite like them.

Hello, this is a card I made for my husbands birthday, heres hoping he likes it.  Im still practising away with my promarkers and feel quite confident with them now.

This is a Dilly Bean stamp and Im totally in love with them, having bought out half of their shop lol!  Totally different to anything I have done before, but thats not a bad thing.
I coloured this image a while ago but hadnt made it into a card.

Im entering this little card into Dilly Beans challenger/Anything Goes

Have a great day, and thank you for looking :-)xx

Busy Colouring

Hello on a beautiful day here, probably too good to be inside, anyway I was too tired after work to take advantage of  it.  I have been busy practising my colouring with my new promarkers, and am starting to feel a bit more confident with them.  These images are some of my practise sheets.

This first one is an interesting image, but there is some thing about it that I really like.  This was a test on how well I could do an abstract look, and some more blending.

This one is sooo cool, gotta love the mono brow, and my fab wallpaper lol!  So thats what Ive been up too.  Made a nice card for my Sisters birthday as well, so hopefully a challenge will come up that I can enter that in, so will save it until then. Whoops I meant so say these images were by Dilly Bean.  Till next time, many thks for visiting, Hugs Denisexx

Markers practise

Hello, here I go again with another Sat Canary image called Roses are Red Violets are Blue!  A long name for a cool image.  Another red head but different colours this time.  Im on to trying blonde now so watch this space lol!

I really need to start some cards, and give the markers a rest.  Not doing any Christmas cards this year as we will be away on the 17th December.  Im looking forward to sitting back and someone else can worry about food and decorations etc.  Wahoo - bring it on.
Thanks for visiting, Cheers Denise

New Look Blog

Im really pleased with my new look blog, many thanks to Sharon of Plumroselane, love her work :-)

Im still hard at it,  practising with my markers, Ive a couple of images that Ive finished but havent as yet been made into cards.  The first one is a saturated canary image that Ive been busy with trying to get a shiney look to the hair.

Hair is so difficult to get right, along with folds and pleats etc in clothing.  The next one is me learning how to colour folds with a soft colouring technique.  Its a stunning image,
I absolutely love it, but not quite sure if I like the folds or not.

The next one is an image that Ive entered into a halloween challenge, using  the colours or shades of purple, black, and orange, but not on a halloween image.  Another cutie coloured but not yet on a card.

Ive coloured the background in several different shades of gray (ha ha not 50)!  Ive used frantage in shabby white and gold around the edges.  Looks better in the flesh than in this photo.  I really need to get making some more cards, but just run out of me time now that spring is here.  The weeds start growing, and the veges need planted. Off to do more colouring, and keep my eye on the tv as well.  Hugs Denise
