The Robyn's Fetish Challenge #153 Fairies


Now who's for a challenge then ??

Sponsored this week by

with a fab prize of 4 digis of the winners choice from the

Now who doesn't like fairies and Delicious Doodles have a great selection to choose from and I chose "Away With the Bunnies"

 Super cute and just right for an unusual Easter card !!

I cut 3 white card strips and embossed them with a flower design and then inked over the top with a blue chalk ink to hilight the design. Then mounted them onto my card. Printed my fairy image and coloured in with promarkers. Heat crinkled some white ribbon which I coloured with a pink promarker to colour match my fairies dress and added a a punched out flower. My sentiment is from Crafty Sentiments Designs and has been mounted on 3d foam and a few bits of my crinkled ribbon added. Finished off with a couple of pink punched out small flowers added to image and some sparkle using a Sakura pen.

The wonderful thing about being on a design team is you have loads of gorgeous cards to give to special friends and this one went to my special friend Nicki !!

House Mouse

I love this House Mouse stamp which was a present from Christina when I was part of her design team at A Maze of Memories. Christina used to keep guinea pigs and so did I.

The challenge over at House Mouse and Friends is "Ribbon and Pearls", so thought I would enter.
The paper is by Basic Grey called "Picadilly" and I have embossed it all using a folder with small flowers to give it more texture.  Coloured in using promarkers and added some lace, ribbon and pearls to finish off.

Cute or what !!

Would love to enter:

This very cute image is from " Just Some Lines" and called "Fairy Kiss"

Been playing with my paper again.   Instead of doing a sun burst effect like last time ( Flowers Galore card)  I have made a corner burst.  Just like last time I have put two patterned papers together ,  but cut wedges up from one corner instead.  Doesn't it give a lovely effect !!

Done my usual thing and coloured in using promarkers and decoupaged my fairies wings, head, arm and frill at bottom of her dress as well as the caterpillar.   The sentiments is from a set os stamps by Woodware called "Fairy Tots"   Finished off with some stickle glitter on her wings and some faux stitching and a few buttons.

Just a super cute card !!

Flowers galore !!

Here I am again with my second post of the day !!

How would you like to win this Annabel stamp ??

Just enter our challenge this week !!

Which is

Well my card sure is going to brighten up this dull day for you !! Who can't not smile at this Crafty Sentiments Design cute bunny stamp called "Field of Flowers"

I've made my sun ray backing paper from two cordinating papers from Bo Bunny's "Hello Sunshine" paper stack. Just lay the two papers together and mark the centre, then cut straight lines at intervals to the centre mark, but number each double wedge you cut out. Then glue each piece onto your card starting at no 1 and alternating each paper paper piece as you go. You'll have enought to make two backing papers.

My bright flowers are just strips of narrow card, hand cut to make a fringe and then rolled up to make the flowers. My leaves were cut using a Sizzix small die. Finished off by faux stitching round the edge of my card.

These are just sooooo cute and not just for Easter !!

Birthday Fishes

Is it me just me who cringes when I see maggots ??

Well I had a box full of them last night on my washing machine, no nothing had died and started to go brother likes to fish and he had to let his magots breath.....hay ho

which explains my card I have to show you today. It was said brother's Birthday yesterday and when I saw this fab image by Bugaboo I had to grab it for his card !!

I love bright and cheerful papers and these are by BoBunny called "Hello Sunshine". Coloured my fish using promarkers and used a blue promarker to colour the background and the blue circle and strip so it all matched. Wouldn't be me if I hadn't decoupaged the image and also glazed the fishes eyes.

The Robyn's Fetish Challenge #149 Easter

Well guys Tesco have had them in since Boxing day !! Yes I'm talking Easter Eggs and M&S not long after that !! And now it's nearly here !!

We have a fabby prize of 3 images of the winners choice !!

And my fab image from The Robyn's Fetish Store is called

Now anyone who knows me or follows my blog, knows white card isin't my thing because it doesn't stay white for very long !!  But this one did I am glad to say !!

Used my pastel promarkers to colour Babette bunny and made a frame using a spellbinders die.  I popped the middle section from my frame behind the sentiment. I then embossed two pieces of white card with two different embossing folders to make the background.

I cut a piece of white card and  punched a lace border and then wrapped three lengths of pastel ribbon round to make the border behind my image and then made a bow using the three ribbons.

To finish off I punched out some very small circles of white card and coloured them with the pastel promarkers  to edge the sentiment.

Can't wait to see your fab Easter creations so why not popped over to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and enter !! The team have loads of inspiring ideas to show you !!
