Swing high

Hello Lovelies, I hope you are all ok ? 
I wanted to share with you a card I made for a dear friends daughters birthday. 
It is such a fun image and I thought perfect for a 6 year old.
I have made the Pinwheel using this fab tutorial ….I will definitely be making more of these. 
I added the cocktail stick to turn it into a windmill. I did add a sentiment to the front of the card but it was just for the birthday girl 🙂 
I hope you like it 🙂

When life throws you Scraps ….

Afternoon lovelies, I cannot believe it is Thursday already ! where are the days going. 
Today I wanted to share with you a card I made using Fairy Needle image from Mo Manning 
I love Mo’s images, especially her little fairies. 
The lovely Lis did a tutorial some time ago on the Spectrum Noir Blog on colouring on Kraft Card, it can be found here , i thought this image would look great coloured on Kraft and i am really happy with how it turned out…Thank you Lis 🙂 It is coloured of course with my Spectrum Noirs (list below) the papers were scraps (they are Prima papers) that i stitched together using my sewing matching, I then added some rough stitching around the edge of the sentiments. All the edges were then distressed and I added some Broken China Distress ink. 
Don’t forget to check out the Spectrum Noir Blog  there is TONS of fab tutorials on all sorts of different techniques.

Morning everyone, I do hope everyone is safe with this awful weather. 
Now those who are on my Facebook page would have seen me saying how fantastic the new Spectrum Noir pencils are…I truly love am in love with these pencils !! 
Spectrum noir challenge  is currently Masculine, so I decided to to make a card and enter…and here it is…
I have used the image Dare from Mo Manning, the sentiment also comes with the image, I decided to go for a travel feel to the card…and of course had to be vintage ! 

Here is a closer look at Dare…I have used the pencils to give definition on this image and I cannot believe how fantastic they blend….I have not even used blending solution ! I really think these will take your colouring to another level and cannot recommend them enough…I was very silly and only got the Essentials set, but I will be purchasing the other sets. I know currently these are only available on Create & Craft, But I *think*  they will be released elsewhere around April time. 
Here is a list of colours and items used-
