Caught a Bug?

Hello Everyone,
I have been going through the digital images that I have already printed out and trying to match them to projects or sketches so that I can use them and not waste them. So I found an image that looked like fun to work with and the sketch from Feeling Sketchy. This is the card that came about with this combination

Isn’t this a cute image. I just love the look on the lady bugs face. This image is BJ Ladybug Jar from Bugaboo Stamps it doesn’t seem to be available anymore but there are plenty of other fun images over at their store (here). I coloured in this image with my Copic Markers and used my Polychromos pencils to put a shadow around the bottom of the jar to ground it so it wasn’t just sitting on nothing.

And this is the sketch that started this card

Feeling Sketchy #210

Because of the size that I had printed this image I had to change the dimension of the flag element on the card. But I think that I still kept with the sketch. The backing paper is from an old paper pack from My Minds Eye that I am near the end of. I matted everything with some orange paper. Then I found some pink felt flowers which I stuck on with UHU clear glue and included some leaves cut from green paper. And that completed my project for today.

I have learnt this unfortunately over the past year. I broke my toes in January 2018 and here we are over a year later and things still aren’t back to where they were.  A lot of other stuff is cropping up because of this … it’s a definite learning curve.

Until Next Time,

Cats Christmas

10 Cat Christmas

Hello everyone,
Another Christmas card finished and I am really happy with how it turned out. On my Christmas card list is a bunch of cat lovers and I am sure one of them will love receiving this.

This card was actually inspired by 2 challenges. The bunch over at Time Out Challenges are asking us to be Colourful for challenge #120 and then I have found a lovely sketch site over at Feeling Sketchy and this is sketch #203

The first is the image from their site the 2nd is my copy with the measurements included.

I think that I have covered the Time Out requirements for being colourful. When I saw that challenge I thought of this image, I’m not 100% sure where I got this digital image from. But I printed it out and coloured it in with my Copic markers.  The papers are from my Christmas stash which is shrinking a little but I need to shrink it a lot more.

Hope you like my take on both of the challenges. Thanks for stopping by and having a look at my project. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought

RoughOh Snoopy my pal you don’t know the half of it and its not even the end yet! This has been a really really rough week. Hope that your week is going a whole heap better.

Have a Happy Crafty Smooth Kind of Day,
❤ Tracy
