Father Christmas Papermania Style

This is my best-ever colouring using Promarkers. That really is showing off isn't it? I can't help it - I took 5 hours to achieve this look! The image is from the Papermania stamps, which I adore.
Hope you like it too.

Altered book

This is a new one for me! I've never altered anything before but I must say, it's fun. Above is the finished project, although the baby is sitting behind a 'window' but it doesn't show in the photograph.

It all started with this:-
After gluing 2/3rds of the the pages together with pva and letting them dry, I cut out a recess which I lined with a Christmas paper. (I'm sorry but I don't know who's paper it is, I have had it in my stash for years)

I made a 'box' from white card for the remaining 1/3rd of the book. Once fitted, I matted and layered on the inside, stamped the greeting and added a die cut snowflake embellished with stickles.
The back page and spine were covered in a contrasting paper which, in turn, was fixed to the 'box'.
Baby Bea was mounted on foam pads in the recess which was then covered with clear acetate. A die cut frame was placed to hide the edges of the acetate. Teddy Bea (skating) was coloured with promarkers and embellished with stickles 'Ice' and glued to one side. The star is part of the Teddy baby download. All of the snowflakes are from a die cut. The icicles (in the first picture of the finished project) is a stamp from Stamp Addicts.

Thanks for looking.

I'm not sure about the composition of this card but I like the apples around the edge and the brick wall! For the wall, I used a mask from Creative Expressions which I coloured with chalks - I think it's very effective and must play with that a bit more.

summer Tilda

I was inspired to make this card after seeing one made by DeliaPrime. This is a lovely Tilda image and lends itself to light, delicate colours. The embossing folder is 'Lattice' by Creative Expressions. Thanks for looking.

summer Teddy Bo

These Teddy Bo digi-downloads are so cute. I've coloured this one with Promarkers and edged the die cut with stickles. The flowers are made from a Marianne die. I can't remember where I bought the paper from - I've had it ages but think it is really summery. Thanks for stopping by.

Humphries Friends

I just love this set of stamps. I coloured this image with prismacolours, embossed the background and matted and layered in peachey colours.

Adorable Tilda's

Just couldn't help myself with this one - the background is from the Adorables cd - enlarged - then I did a bit of decoupaging followed by adding the Tilda's all coloured with Promarkers (I'm hooked on colouring in! lol) Thanks for stopping by.
