Lexi’s Creations #47 - Oriental

Arggghhhh I should be shot. I completely forgot to post my DT card for this fortnight’s challenge at Lexi’s Creations, where we are once again sponsored by image with a 5 pack of promarkers up for grabs.

Our challenge to you this time is to make something Oriental. I was lucky enough to be given this gorgeous image from Lexi’s own range which are available at Fairy Dust Crafts. My lovely oriental girl is called Ching Lan.

Lexi 47a I coloured her in with Promarkers, apart from her skin which are copics. The paper is a freebie from a craft magazine from a Kate Night stack, and the pink card is a WRMK sheet. The corners were cut with Nellie Snellen dies which I mistakenly thought were corner dies, but actually I prefer that they sculpt the corner of the page instead, although you do have to be very precise with where you position them before you cut. The centre and image are cut out with nesties. Greenery is cut with various Marianne dies and the flowers are from my Wild Orchid stash. The chinese coin I have had for ever and it was originally brass but I coloured it with the same colour I chose for her dress.

Dream Valley #14 Colour Theme

We have a colour theme for you this time at Dream Valley. But beware, put your sunglasses on first ‘cos it’s bright!image

We are sponsored again by image with a fabulous $10 prize for their store. The team were lucky enough to be given some fabulous Stitchy images to play with and this is what I came up with.

DV 14 2My image is called Tattoo and Feathers and I coloured her in with promarkers. Using mainly the orange and lime colours in the colour combo.  I made the base card and the daisy layer (Bearly Mine paper) from a Go Kreate die. The doily is from my stash as is the orange feather and the gorgeous filigree corner piece. The ribbon comes from Bunny Zoe Crafts, as I was lucky enough to win a £10 voucher to her store recently. The cogs are genuine from an old clock that had stopped working years ago but which stood on the mantle when I was a child. Strangely when I started to dismantle it it suddenly kicked back into life and started to chime. The sound took me back 40+ years!

DV 14 I used the metallic gold promarker for the studs on her funky glasses and the chain, but to be honest I am not overly impressed with it, and I would have preferred a sakura or pentouch pen I think.

Belated ABC Z is for Zoo Challenge

I am not entirely sure where my head is at this week but I completely forgot to post my ABC DT card from last Wednesday! Arggghhhhh – sorry team

Anyhow late, but finally here is my idea for the Zoo challenge.

Main WM

As soon as I saw the gorgeously cute little elephant from Robyn’s Fetish, who are our sponsors this week. I was put in mind of hayfever because he looks like he might be sneezing. So with that in mind I sorted through my huge Basic Grey stacks for some floral paper that would fit the bill. The image has been coloured with prismas and OMS.

The ribbon, button and clip are all from my stash and I made the sentiment myself with a floral font in my graphics program. It reads, in case it’s not too clear here, ‘To keep hayfever at bay, take one Ell-ereze tablet a day …. Bless You!’ I also made the flowers from a combo of the papers.

I’m entering this into the following:-
