80th Birthday Mummu

Good Morning Mo Friends I hope you are all well. The card I have for you today is one I made last year(that sounds so wrong as it was only a couple of weeks ago). I was asked by a cousin if I would make a card for his Nan as it was her 80th birthday on boxing day.The lady in question is also my Auntie so no pressure lol.
I decided to use a Mummu image as she is the perfect resemblance to how a grandmother should be. I coloured the image with polychrome pencils then inked with oxide inks.
I added die cut bird cage and flowers which I embossed with frontage powder, the papers were freebies from pixel scrapper which I thought went perfect with the image.
To finish I added a sentiment and insert with verse.
Hope you like it and I will see you soon.

Giant tag

Hello everyone I hope you're OK. Today I have a mixedmedia giant tag to share with you.
It started life as a caddy from poundland as you can see from photos (I brought more than one)



 anyway one broke and rather than through it away I thought I'd keep the sides as tags.


 I sanded it back then gesso'd for texture I added patina paint and once that was dry, I added acrylic paints in blue tones,then with pink acrylic paint I added some texture with background stamps.
The image of the flowers in vase is stamped onto watercoloured card then coloured with inktense pencils and fussy cut out. (They were freebies from a magazine)



I die cut my letters after embossing some card with frantage then stuck down in the words I wanted, I then added a key and lock to finish which I aged with patina paint. I'm entering this into #ninaribina prompts group if you haven't heard of it before pop over it's a great friendly group.

Falalalala

Hello my lovelies I really do hope you had a magical Christmas. I was lucky enough to get some crafty goodies in my Christmas stocking lol can’t wait to use them.


Anyway as it’s Friday again already it’s my turn to share a card with you so here it is. I have used one of Mo’s new Christmas images Falalalala (links at bottom)
I used some old papers I haven’t used in years for this card as I was tired of using the same ones and so glad I did, I added ribbon and twine around the centre of the card then added a snowflake.
The image has been coloured with my trusted polychromos  then I used distress inks to ink around the edges oh and I added puffy stuff on the snowflakes to give some dimension.
So there you have my card for this week hope you like it and I will see you soon so until then Happy New Year to you all

Roman Oh No

Well it’s that time again, yes Friday and my turn to share some inspiration with you. Mo has done some adorable Christmas images and one was very apt for us at the moment so that is the one I have gone with.
We thought twice about putting our tree up this year because of the kitten but we thought why not. So far tough wood he hasn’t been too bad.
The papers were freebies from a magazine a few weeks ago and I die cut the image out before colouring with my polychromos.
The snowflakes are from Sainsbury’s on offer 3 for 2 at the moment.
Hope you like it and I’ll see you soon.

Winter Fairy Halla

Hello my lovelies Oh it’s so nice to be back with a card. My mojo seems to have abandoned me for what seems like ever. Anyway I’m here today with a gorgeous Christmas card using the ubber cute Winter Fairy Halla I think she is one of my favourite fairy’s I love colouring her in and this time I used copics (shock horror yes I did) you can probably tell as I’m not too good with them yet.

The papers are freebies from this months Card making and Papercrafts Magazine. Now I don’t usually use the freebie papers in magazines but these looked so pretty but they are so thin and flimsy which is why I don’t usually use them but they have done the job.
I made the bow from some Christmas ribbon and added some snowflake sequins to finish off.
Hope you like it and I will see you soon.

Esmarelda

Hello everyone well I'm back with another Mo make this time it's a card for a special friend who's birthday was on Halloween so I decided to make her a fun card using the ubber cute witch Esmarelda  

The papers are from pixelscrapper (freebies) which I have distressed the edges.
The image isn't she adorable? Is coloured with polychromo pencils and then I used a mask of the image so I could ink the background in distress oxide inks.


The pumpkin and hat are just clipart images which I have decoupaged to give dimension
So there you have my card for today I hope you like it and I'll see you soon
