Digital Tuesday - Layers

This is our last challenge for a while at Digital Tuesday, we are on holiday ;)  Somewhere nice I hope.  The challenge is layers so I layered this card up good and proper.

 I used an image from Saturated Canary which I coloured up with Prismacolor Pencils.  I have used lots of glimmermist on this card, the colours are Sun Sisters, Iridescent Gold,  Patina, Turquoise Blue, Lemon Meringue, Wheatfields and Apple.  The paper from MME Merry & Bright 6x6 paper pad and I cut the shapes with a doily die from the warehouse, no idea of the brand, a spellbinder label die and Tim Holtzs alterations dies, mini snowflake and mini rosette..  The sentiment  is from Hero Arts Very Merry sentiment set.  I also used some gold thread that I have had for yonks and I coloured her wings with about 3 different silver pens I have in my pen bucket and the gold was done with an Atyou Spica pen.

Here is a close up of all the shimmer.....

Pretty aye :)

A Thank You and a Blog Candy Heads Up

First up, make sure and go and check out Tonya's Blog Candy, she is totally sweet!

Next, here is a card I made for my Mum to send my cousin.....

I actually don't know why I put a Thank you sentiment on here but it got taken off before it was sent, duh.  I guess we all have those

The papers are DCWV Baby Girl papers and the image is from Tiddlyinks and is coloured with my beloved Prismapencils.  The butterflies were one of my BLITSY  bargains.

Thanks loads for popping by on the first official day of my boys Summer Holidays :)

SGC - Endless Summer Challenge

Summer is my most favourite season of the year, it brings swimming, jandals, Christmas, sand and sun.  All the fun stuff :)   And over at Southern Girls Challenge we are celebrating my favourite season with an "ENDLESS SUMMER" challenge.  And here is my card using a very cute image from one of our sponsors THE PAPER SHELTER.....

So it is pretty obvious that this little cutie wasn't actually designed as a Christmas image but I personally think that she looks pretty sweet in her Christmas hat and dress :)  I have coloured this image with my prismacolor pencils and added some highlights with glimmer glaze in Saffron.  The papers came in a pad I got cheap in Blitsy (link at the top of my blog) and the sentiment is Hero Arts.  The flowers came from Wild Orchid Crafts and I blinged them with the glimmer glaze as well.

Digital Tuesday Challenge - Non Traditional Christmas

Ok, I know what you are thinking when you see my card BUT in my humble opinion BROWN is not traditional!  Ok ?  So I used brown!  I also used an image from our sponsor THE STAMP FAIRY.  
So there you have it, if you want to make a Christmas project using something digital in Non Traditional Christmas Colours then Digital Tuesday Challenge wants you :)

And here is my card........

I used some old SU papers I had stashed away.  I coloured the image using prismacolor pencils on canson watercolour paper.  I also added liquid applique to the image along with red stickles, green e-line rhinestones (from Prima), liquid pearls and white gel pen.  The ribbon is my newest purchase and it came from spotlight. The sentiment is hero arts and is stamped in Chocolate Chip dye ink from SU.

I am entering my card in the following challenges......
