Spooky...........

Hello!

This week the design team are thinking autumn and what comes with autumn - but Hallowe'en (and pumpkin spice lattes!!!).

I have been playing with my Silhouette again and this week decided to make two wee gift boxes for those treats.

I made a pumpkin gift bag which I coloured with my copics and decorated with a Lil Miss Sugarpops - I used Kittycat Digi Stamp which you can see here.

For a wide range of more of Lil Miss Sugarpops, you can see the whole collection here.


I also made a wee box decorated with bat paper from a previous Hallowe'en collection, which you can see here.


I am quite pleased with both of the makes.

Right so back to Winnie White Christmas - so many beautiful images - you can see the whole range here.

Black & white plus one other colour.........

Hello

It is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme and this week we were given black and white and one other colour. PINK!!! Sorry, that was what I thought as soon as I saw the challenge!

REMEMBER to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

Ok, so I've got to use black & white and one other colour. As you can see above, I immediately went to pink. Ok, so I have my colour palette, what to use, hmmmmmmm

Enter Horace & Boo. Yes, the perfect (or should I say Purrfect) character collection for a black and white theme. 

So I rummaged through my gorgeous Horace & Boo Collection which you can find here. I could have used a precoloured image but wanted to use my pens. So I opted for 'Friendly Cuddles' - because everyone needs a friendly cuddle now and then!  


I made a 7x7 card and kept it black and white, I embossed the white backing card to break up the vast whiteness! I cut out two scallops for a topper and then I cut the image out on my Silhouette. I then coloured with my Copic Markers, introducing pink into my image. Yes Horace has a pink collar, but real males wear pink don't you know? 





I added a satin pink ribbon for that burst of colour. The sentiment is from the same collection. 

So hop over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with, there is lots of inspiration for you to look at.

Remember to come join in the fun with us, you can use any medium you like and the theme is anything goes.

Hope to see you soon!

A little bit batty about Bat Girl..............



Hello!

So I am back again today sharing another Halloween card I made using the NEW Winnie Wednesday Collection from Polkadoodles - which you can see here. This was my OH's third pick of the collection as his favourite image, so I had to colour her up for him!

Winnie Wednesday Witch Full Bundle Printable download Halloween Trick or Treat  - Digital Stamp download printable clipart.

Today I am here using 'Bat Girl' which is sooooooo cute, you can get her in the collection, as a black and white digi stamp and also as a coloured digi.

I made a 7x7 card using papers from the collection, which again, you can get within the main collection or as seperate downloads, using collection 1 and collection 2.


The sentiment is from the same collection. The webs and bats are cut from my Silhouette. I love the contrast in colour tone in the photos, it's October in the north east of Scotland, we may never see the sun again this year, so I took the top photo with the flash on to make it 'brighter' and the flash off for Bat Girls close up, you wouldn't believe that's the exact same paper! I need a photo studio, and a craft studio.........ah I can dream...........

I used the following copic markers:
Skin: E000, E00, E13, E11
Hair: E25, E27, E59
Dress: G24, G82, G46
Bat Hat: C9, C7, C5
Bat: C3, C1, C0
Pumpkin: YR12, YR16, YR09, YR18

She's so lovely, I did mess up her ponytail but I don't think it's so bad, I couldn't use her, so I don't mind if you don't look too closely at the colouring! LOL!!!

I hope you like her and please check out the collection, so much content for a cracking price! 

See you soon!

Winnie Wednesday Skull................



Hello!

I LOVE this image, I love her attitude and her pose, she is the cutest and is almost my favourite of the entire collection. Of course I am talking about the FAB NEW Collection Winnie Wednesday - which you can see the WHOLE collection on this page, and buy the complete bundle here.

Winnie Wednesday Witch Full Bundle Printable download Halloween Trick or Treat  - Digital Stamp download printable clipart.

You get images in both black and white digis or pre-coloured images, papers and sentiments. Jam packed with all you need for Halloween!

So Winnie Wednesday Skull is ADORABLE! I made a 7x7 card and coloured her with my copic markers. I used two papers from the collection, the main focus paper is quite detailed so I didn't want to detract from that, so all I added was my image, a sentiment and some bats - because she sooooo needs to have bats!


I just love how this one turned out.

I used the following copic markers to colour Winnie
Skin: E000, E00, E13, E11, E04
Hair: C9, C8, C7, C5
Dress: BV17, V25, V27

Look at that pose! What a little miss, so very cute! 

Now as you know Polkadoodles allows you to get all elements of a collection individually, so if you want the black and white digi only, click here.  If you don't have time or desire to colour, get the pre colured stamp here. I used papers from collection 1 and collection 3.

I really think she's lovely.

Remember to check out the whole collection here.

Thanks for popping by! 

See you soon

Witchy Witch.......



Hello

Well I started making DT projects yesterday  for an upcoming Halloween theme and kind of got side tracked by how amazingly CUTE the new Winnie Wednesday Collection is, so I dragged my other half over to the laptop and said of the wonderful 6 images which ones where his favourite. He picked his favourite three and I snuck my favourite image in for the DT challenge coming up later in the month.

The whole collection can be found here.

For today's project, I had to use the wee Witch first. She's called 'Witch & Cat' and you can get this as a single black and white digi here, or the coloured digi stamp here.  


I made a 7x7 card, using the papers from the collection which are again available in the complete download collection or in individual collections, these two papers are from collection 1 and collection 3.  The sentiment is available from the same collection or by themselves here.

The wee pumpkins are from Halloween 2015 collection and you can get them here

My Winnie Witch and Cat are coloured with my Copic Markers. 


I used the following markers:
Skin: E000, E00, E13, E11, R20
Hair: BV23, BV25, BV29
Purples: BV13, V22, V25
Greys: C8, C6, C5, C4
Cat: C4, C3, C1
Pumpkin: YR12, YR16, YR18
Broom: E93, E95, E97

Isn't she uber cute!?  Because of my poor photo skills you don't see very well that my mat and die cut is actually aubergine card.

I hope you like my first offering of the Halloween Collection - remember to check out the whole collection here

See you soon!
