All Dressed up - NEW DT and December release

Hello everyone

I have been so excited I've barely been able to contain myself.  I found out earlier this week that I had made the cut for the All dressed up DT call!!  I happy danced around for a long while I cant tell you what this means to me and to be working with some extremely talented ladies makes my feel very honoured!

Here's my first post.  I only had a couple of days to make this.  The image is yet again so gorgeous I didn't want to over whelm her, I wanted her to be the main focus.

She's called 'little skater'  - Check out the blog and shop for details on how to get your hands on her here
She's been coloured with promarkers and then I've used distress inks and glitter to produce the shadows and ice effect.  The image was printed onto the background and I've then used copious amounts of frantage all around to make it look like its snowing!

please hop over to ADU to see our other new release and see some of Wendy's other gorgeous images too.  Our latest challenge is still on too if you fancy using one of the images (I know you wont' be able to resist!) all info on the blog too.

anyway - I'm off again to dance around a little bit more! 

I'd like to enter this into:

Brown Sugar - Winter
Delicious Doodles - non traditional Christmas
Art impression stamps - Feeling frosty
Crafting by designs - Christmas

Please leave me some love if you drop by here - I love to read your lovely comments they always make my day x

Sentimental Sundays - Embossing wet or dry

Hello bloggers.

I hope your Christmas planning is going well!  I'm currently nursing a rather sore head after my company Christmas party last night.  It involved lots of dancing, drinking and even  food fight well life's too short not to let your hair down at least once a year!!  

Anyway... our latest challenge over at Sentimental Sundays is Embossing.  so either wet using powders and inks, or dry with folders etc.

Our lovely sponsor today is bugaboo - so I used this uber cute image as it reminded me of my little boy!

My sentiment background is embossed with a bargain folder I picked up at the NEC.  I had it from 'every crafts a pound' so no prizes for guessing I paid £1 for it!

The background paper is a docrafts one called letter to Santa and the image has been coloured with promarkers.  The Ho Ho stamp is from a Crafters companion set .

Please hop on over to Sentimental Sundays and have a go at our challenge.  Bugaboo are giving away images for the winner, but even if you don't want to enter, our talented DT have some great inspiration for you.

See you soon

Hello fellow bloggers

its Friday - and our fortnightly release of a new sketch over at Friday sketch challenge.

This time by the lovely Maja.

And without further ado (I haven't got much to add today i'm too busy with Christmas prep to have a life!) here's my interpretation

Hes' a cute LoTV stamp (i purchased rather a lot from a lovely lady on Facebook who was giving up crafting... bargain too!).  Hes been colored with promarkers
For the background I used distress inks with my duster brushes and a torn piece of paper to create snow and sky, and edged this with glitter,

Please stop over at Friday sketch challenge and give it a go.  If you land here please leave me a comment as I'd love to hear from you!
