An Alternative Beauty

Ooo look at me twice in one week, don't all fall off your chairs in shock now!!
I have created a card using one of the fab new images from Saturated Canary using this awesome new image called Alternative beauty..
Now, I wonder why I like her so much?! She is soooo up my street with her funky style and I'm sure there are plenty of young girls that would just love a card with a funky image like this on! This is for a friend of mine who turns 24 soon and I know she is just gonna love her!
I have used fancy pants papers here, love the funky colours. Along with black feathers from my stash for a bit of drama! Flowers are from WOC and beautiful butterflies are from Kays. I have used black acrylic paint around all my papers for a distressed look and have used pink paint on the edges of my butterflies too. My sentiment is papertrey ink.
My image has been coloured with prisma pencils, still having some printer issues so I can't get the colouring ad defined as I would like but I guess I will get there with the ink bleed thing soon enough! I have edged again in black paint and added adornits letters for personalisation.
 There are so many awesome new releases lately that you just have to check them out and I really should create with more of them!!!
Thanks so much for coming by my blog everybody, loves ya all!!!
Big hugs

A favourite stamp

Hello everyone, yes I'm back for another brief encounter!
Things just seem to be tough to fit into my day right now and my crafting is just not happening as much as it used to. I am still here I promise! I'm just not creating anywhere near as much as I used to, I do hope I can find time to do more soon!
I have a card today which is for both the new challenge at Divas by design (your favourite stamp -anything by Saturated canary is a favourite of mine!) and a midway challenge reminder for the Saturated Canary Facebook challenge which is to create something using this awesome "Miss Personality" stamp.
I have used lots of pretty spring/ summer colours for this card. I can't even remember where my papers were from (soory) I think they were more than likely MME. My flowers are a mixture but mostly from Wild orchids and my butterflies are prima. My sentiment is LOTV.
My uber cute image has been coloured with prisma pencils. I think she looks a bit dirty as my printer ink kept bleeding when I was trying to colour :( I ended up using a blender pencil as it bled less that the mineral I used. I'm not sure if it is the card stock or the printer but it didn't make for easy colouring! I used a SU paint splodge stamp around the image too.
Do join in with  us for both of these awesome challenges for a chance at fab prizes!
Thanks for coming by again everyone.
Big hugs

A Creative Romance birthday blog hop

Happy 1st birthday to A Creative Romance!!!
Yes can you believe it has been 1 year since we started and although I have been a dreadful blogger and creator of late I am thrilled to have been a part of the first year at this challenge blog and obviously HAD to participate in our first birthday blog hop!!!
So here is my card... Well I wouldn't say my mojo is well and truly on form yet but for a first creation in a while it's definitely not my worst! I have used MME papers along with Jute and flowers from WOC and butterflies from Kays. My sentiment is Stempelglede like the stamps used around my image.
My image is of course the stunning Denise from saturated Canary coloured with prisma pencils
and what is a birthday blog hop without a little candy along the way?! So as it is a birthday I have this brand new "Ellies birthday" rubber stamp from Saturated canary to give away to a lucky blog hopper and not just that but I may just throw this card in too!
