Wee One Bug

Hello everyone, another card made from one of my images that I have watercoloured but this time around I have added some details with pens afterwards.

10 06 BugBoy

This cute little image is called Wee Little Bug from Bugaboo Digital Images and is still available. This card started with a sketch from Stella Says Sketch #716 

But I will also be putting this card into the Anything Goes Challenge over at the Catch the Bug Challenge site.

I kept this card on the simple side because I wanted to let the watercolour image to be the main star. I had a lot of fun both colouring in the image and making up the card as well.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I appreciate all of the likes and comments on my posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

Until next time, enjoy the season you are in,

Fluttering Butterflies

Hello everyone, today I had some fun and pulled out my watercolour paints. I have just gotten into using these again after not using this type of medium since High School. But I used a digital image from Bugaboo Digital Images. And this is the card that I made.

10 06 Butterfly

Unfortunately, this image is no longer available but I love using it. The image only comes with 1 butterfly in the middle to get the other 2 I cropped the image and printed them at the same time on another piece of watercolour paper. This whole design was started by this sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #336.

I will also be entering this card into the Anything Goes Challenge over at the Catch The Bug Challenge site.

Christmas Time, Digital Stamps, Handmade Cards, travel

Roo Christmas

Hello everyone, today I am bringing you a card inspired by 2 challenges.

Over at Shopping our Stash it is Dare the Embossible Dream. Which means its time to share your embossing skills of any kind.  And then over at the Daring Cardmakers it is

So by combining these 2 challenges together I made a 1 layer card using a large image which is a composition of several digi stamps from Make it Crafty.

09 30 Roo Christmas

I think that this highlights an Australian Christmas. We don’t have any snow, it is usually blistering hot. But this Christmas I think that we would all love to have rain for our presents because we need a break in our drought. I think that when I coloured in this I was thinking of greener happier times in the western regions of Queensland.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card making project combining the 2 challenges together. I appreciate all of the likes and comments that my posts receive. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought to ponder on.

Purrrfect Birthday

Hello everyone, trying to make a card with not many colours makes it harder. But having a wonderful silhouette image to work with makes things much easier.

And this cat silhouette image from Bugaboo was just the ticket. This card I will also be entering into 2 different challenges.

This bingo challenge from Bugaboo which I have used the right column and also a sketch challenge #355 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I really appreciate all of the likes and comments on my posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

Never too late…

Baby and Bear

Hello everyone, the card that I have for you was made for the Catch The Bug Challenge. I am super pleased with how the card has turned out.

09 25 Its a Girl

The Catch the Bug Challenge is the September Bingo Challenge, these are fun to participate in because you have so many options.

For my card I went straight across the bottom. Even though this is a retired Bugaboo image I love using her as she is adorable sitting with her teddy friend. The papers that I used are actually from a card crafting magazine that I got quite a while ago but was sitting on my desk. The sentiment sticker has been sitting in my stash for ages but the gold stripes are actually new to my stash from a company called “Love From Lizi“. I love these but postage from the UK is a killer to the land of OZ – I got these when Lizi was offering free postage so I only had to pay for the product.

Thanks for coming on by my blog to have a look at my card project. I appreciate your visit and all of the likes and comments that I recieve on my posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought to ponder on.

Nice Cup of Tea

Until next time, find something that you love and go do it!

Hobnail Tulips

Hello everyone, as I mentioned in my last post I made 2 cards with the same image from Power Poppy. Well here is the other card from that pair.

09 25 Vase Tulips 2

As I also mentioned in the last post this card started with a sketch from Sketch Saturday #582. And here it is again for your reference.

I have used the same die that I used on the previous card to make the swirl but I have only adjusted it a little to fit on the card. This time around I have used a Get Well Soon sticker from my stash. The paper that I have used on both cards comes from that large stash of Recollections Black and White Paper Pad it gives a little bit of pattern without overwhelming my watercolour panels which I wanted to be the focal point.

Thanks for stopping into my blog and having a look at my card project. I want to also say thanks for all the comments and likes on my blog I really appreciate it. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on for this post.

Until we meet again, always remember that you matter,

Tulip Vase

Hello everyone, today I am actually bringing you 2 cards made with the one image from Power Poppy. I haven’t done this to an image for a while but this image just cried out for it to be done.  Here is a photo of the 2 cards together and then I will concentrate on one card at a time with a close up of the image.

09 25 Vase Tulips

But this card actually started with a sketch from Sketch Saturday #582.

You can see how I have used this sketch with the halves of the picture. I flipped the sketch just so that it suited the 2nd side. This image was coloured in with some watercolour paints onto some rough watercolour paper that I put through my printer to get this image. The image is called “Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher Digital Stamp Set” and it is still available. You can also buy it as a clear photopolymer stamp set as well. I love images from Power Poppy they can be used for so many different occasions. This was my first time using watercolour paints since I was in high school.

Here is the Happy Anniversary Card just by itself.

09 25 Vase Tulips 1

I didn’t have a die that came near the sketch so I used the curliest one that I could find. I matted each layer with maroon card stock and added the Happy Anniversary sticker from my stash. The 3 hearts were on the same sticker sheet so I added them to the top right and that finished off this side of the image 🙂

Thanks for coming to my blog today and looking at my card project. I hope that you like what I did with this sketch. I am grateful for all of the comments and likes on my posts. And as always I would like to leave you with this image to ponder on before you go.

Rose Hill.

Until next time, find something that you love and do it!
