I was able to use the very cute German Shepherd from Oakpond Creations. I coloured him with my pens and pencils, cut him our by hand. Made a frame using my Labels 4 gold, some distress ink for the grass and sky.
I used a Spellbinders border and swiped it with my blue ink. I used one of my new Embosalicious embossing folders, used my green ink on the embossing and left it at that.

I look forward to seeing your creations as I hop around your blogs, thank you as always for popping by and any comments you can take the time to leave are greatly appreciated.

Pile It On Challenge 25 Cute

Hello again, I can't believe I haven't posted for so long, note to self must do better, this time I am posting for Pile It on and we would like to see your Cute creations. I am sorry not sure what has happened to the post but will try to fix it. We are sponsored by Oddball Art.

 Prize - 3 single digital stamps from Oddball Art

Oddball Art by Lizzy Love: Growing up a child of the 80's, pop rocks princess, with an extreme fondness for anything candy coated, Kawaii Kitten & Ziggy Stardust, all of which had a major influence in the work that I am creating today. I employ many different mediums when I create, anything from mixed media painting to sewing with many different textiles, the end result always being the same; A whimsical dream world filled with big eyed beauties, creepy little cuties and quirky monsters of all shapes and sizes.

I was able to use Kawaii Clouds, I decided to use a beach scene and add my clouds to it. Sorry I haven't put the beach scene into a folder so not sure who it is by. 

I used one of my new A4 embossing folders and some Tumbled Glass distress Ink for the background, I think this is my new favourite way to create backgrounds so apologies if you get fed up seeing this one. 


I used my Spectrum Noir pencils to colour the image in I do love the effect you get with just the pencils. I used another embossing folder for the little beach huts, cut them out of the card stock and coloured then with the pencils as well. I wanted a backing for the image and beach huts so found a sheet of packaging in my scrap box and roughly cut it with some decorative scissors. The scissors are not something I used very often but I think they will be used a little more now as I like the effect I got with them.

Hello Again, I must apologise for my lack of commenting I am having bother finding the time to get round to see your wonderful creations but hope to remedy that soon. On to the crafting this time I am posting a new challenge at Creative Moments, we are looking for you Monochrome projects and as always we have anything goes as well.

I was able to use the beautiful Aurora Daisy for my card. 
 I coloured her with my new Spectrum Noir pencils only, I am really pleased with the colouring and I managed to leave a white space on her hair for some shine, believe me this was hard for me as I always feel I have't finished colouring if there is white space.

I used my new embossing folder I got at Bolton on Sunday, swiped the embossed card with some tumbled glass distress ink to create the background. I wanted to frame the image so used some papers from a magazine, some black card and my doily punch from Martha Stewart. 2 pastel ribbons one is blue the other is pink in a big bow and some flowers in the corner finished it off.
