KS Inspiration - Adriannas Owl


My son is mad on owls..
So my challenge was t take this girly owl and make it suitable for either sex...
and being near Christmas of course it had to be a Christmas card !

So here is my Karleigh Sue Adriana Owl - Christmas style



I also wanted to keep it CAS..


I cut her out using a nestie die. 

Edged this cut out with a red felt pen
I coloured her using the following polychromo pencils
 Bow - lyra light carmine, moss green
 Branch - lyra burnt sienna, Faber Castel caput mortuum

 Owl - Lyra raw umber, burnt ochre, van dyke brown, gold ochre

The background paper is from my stash.


I had to buy a new Christmas greeting die this year - so made good use of it on red card to match the base card.

I hope this inspires you to join Karleigh Sue challenge and share your projects with us all.

So I found suitable colours in my blendable pencils and away we went. - recipe below..

Hair - Faber Castell caput mortuum violet
Skin - Lyra light flesh, med flesh
Onesie/Panrs/Shoes - Derwent deep fuschia, lime green, Lyra brown ochre

KS Inspiration post - Senorita

I wanted to put a different twist on Senorita
So I went with a new year card.. to celebrate with some vivid colour..



Recipe

Skin - Lyra medium flesh, dark flesh
Hair - Lyra burnt ochre, raw umber, dark sepia
Roses - Lyra rose madder lake, Derwent deep fuchsia
Dress - Lyra light green, dark flesh, rose madder lake

I found some backing papers from an old magazine that I liked the colours on so went with those

Cut some spirals from some of the scrap card and rolled 4 flowers.
spiraled 2 thin strips of the pink backing card I used.
Printed the greeting and punched out with a circle punch, mat and layered on same papers

I used a different card fold (learnt the other week at Sir Stamps Alot)
An A4 card folded in 1/2 to make an A5 size portrait card then divide & cut into 3 horizontaly (approx 7cm tall)
Then mount your image onto the front of it so it stands above..
(With some practise you can work out the right sizes to fit the envelopes you have)


I hope this inspires you to get colouring and share your projects on Karleigh Sue Challenge blog

King regards

I wanted this fruity little number to be a xmas card 
(I am so behind on making this years it is ridiculous!)

I was going to add 3d berries and such to this Art By Mirian Berrylicious digi until I re-read the guidelines for this challenge.. CAS so had a rethink..

trimmed down a 6x6 xmas paper to fit showing a slight edge of the green.
coloured the image with the following pencils

Skin - Lyra light flesh, medium flesh
Hair - Derwent ochre, Lyra cream
Dress - Lyra cream, gold ochre
Berries - Derwent deep red, Lyra India red
Leaves - Lyra moss green, cedar green

Then layered her on the same green card as the base card.
2 red brads/split pins under and to the right of the image.


I love this image and may make a few more 

I hope this inspires you to pop over to CCCB challenge and share your projects
We love to see what you do

613AC - #141 Love Me Do


This project uses a Bugaboo digi called Faith block.
The challenge was 'Love Me Do' as it was on September 11th, 1962 The Beatles recorded their 1st single  "love me do"

After watching someone on Create & Craft colouring something red by starting with bright orange I thought I'd give it a go too..  It's supposed to emphasise the redness..


So I used Bright Orange Promarker to colour the roses.
Moss Green Promarker on the stalks and leaves.
Then coloured over the top with Derwent pencils - scarlet, red, deep red, and bright orange on the roses.
Derwent purple on the butterflies.
Faber Castel  light cobalt and turquoise for the background/
Lyra light blue on the background

 and Burnt Carmine on the roses.

I layered the image onto red card from my stash and added a couple of butterflies that I found in a toppers box.

I hope this inspires you to share your projects.

KS Inpirational post - Lets Go Team

Todays post uses Karleigh Sues Let Go Team digi



I'm guessing as our artist is American this is aimed at being American football,
But being a Brit I used artistic licence to turn it into a rugby theme.

I used Polychromo pencils.
Shades of blacks and greys for the hair.
Flesh and blush for her skin.
Then shades of orange for her team strip.

The rugby ball is just in light shades of grey.

I found co-ordinating coloured papers in my stash to bring it all together.
Hand cutting a rugby ball shape for an embelishment.

And a peel off Dad that I coloured black with a Sharpie pen.

This is in our favourite rugby league team colours - Castleford Tigers..



Please pop over to Karleigh Sues challenge blog and share your projects.

TTPH - Sept - Zuri - Nadia


This project uses Zuri digi Nidia.

The challenge theme was birthday.

My inspiration for this digi was a part made dream catcher I found in my stash!
Which lead to the greeting.
I added extra beads to the dream catcher to co-ordinate with the colours used on the digi.

I cant find the list of pencils used

(blame my post holiday head!)
But I have started to use Promarkers as a base colour
building up layers with the pencils.
I added some Diamond Glaze to the bubbles to give them a wet look (hasnt come out well on the photo)

I hope this inspires you to use things out of the norm on your projects

TCCC - All Dressed Up - A Star is Born



This is my first project for this DT..
The challenge theme was monochromatic for a child for National Childhood Awareness week


My recipe for this project is very simple and listed below

Promarkers, dabbed on in the following shades;-
Walnut, Cinnamon, Tan, Satin.
Then dab blender over to get the 'fluffy' effect
and a gold pencil (no make) to colour the stars

I used a 'nesty' type die set (sorry no idea what make it was as out of packaging on magnetic sheets) to cut out the image and a patterned layer that was in my scrap box.
I found a random piece of gold ribbon to layer diagonally.
Used a brown Promarker to outline the edges of both die cut pieces
and another to draw faux stitching around edge of card blank.

I hope this inspires you to share your projects.

Kind regards

Todays inspirational post uses Karleigh Birthday Sweets.



I made this card to give to my cousin-in-laws daughter (is there such a thing as a cousin-in-law?)


Again, I forgot to list the colours of the polychromo pencils used - sorry..


I cut around the balloon by hand then layered it over a circle die to cut the rest out - missing the balloon
(easier to do than it is to explain!)


Mat and layered her on more circles from papers in my stash.

Cut the sentiment pieces from another die set (unfortunately these are out of their packaging on magnetic sheets and I cant remember the make of them)


Added as ribbon and bow from my stash.

I am magically blogging this as I fly to Rhodes ;-) lol
With this card is in my suitcase for a barmans birthday over there.






This project uses Karleigh Sue Just A beer Please digi.



I used my Polychromo pencils to colour her.
(sorry I got carried away with the colouring and didn't list the pencils used)

I cut her out using one of my fancy dies.
layered up over the same die in card from my stash.
Wanting to keep the 'bar' theme I rummaged through my peel off stash (once I'd wiped the dust off them!) and found a beer glass and bottle with glass.
Filled with diamond glass to get the glass effect and glued cotton wool on the pint for the beer head.

KS New Release


This months new release from Karleigh Sue is Holiday Greetings.
You can find her and a few more new ones over at Karleigh Sue's etsy shop




I printed her on Neenah card stock and coloured her with my polychromo pencils.
My die cutting machine was out for another project so I thought I'd layer her up 

(sorry, no idea what or where the dies are from - they are off their packaging on a magnetic sheet, and my memory is pants!) lol


I added some ribbon from my stash and cut the mats and layers with the same dies (again papers from my stash)

Added some christmas coloured gems I purchased from KS.

I hope you like this inspiration for KS new release image and will pop over to their challenge blog and share your projects.
We love to see them

Kind regards
Theresa

613 July #132 challenge

Here is my inspirational post for challenge #132 Create Your Own

This image is from Oddballartco, Santa Zebra

I chose Square card, Christmas and water colour from the options.



I used water colour pencils for the black stripes on the zebra and red for the santa hat.
I added a touch of Decoart Snow-tex to the hats fur and bobble.

Die cut image and layered on black then red.
Layering this on top of a border scrap from my stash.

I can see this image making many of my Christmas cards this year.

Kind regards
Theresa

KS Christmas in July

Are you getting those Christmas gifts made ready for the big day?
I have started mine
and Karleigh Sue has a new release of cute Christmas Elves to get you on your way

Here is what I did with them



That is only 4 of them - there is more to follow but I havent finished them yet ;-)

I coloured them with polychromo pencils on Neenah Classic Crest Card.

Papers and ribbon from my stash and my 1st attempt at a bottle cap..  Melted some embossing powder in it. Then used glossy accents to attach the die cut holly, with some seed beads as berries.
And a peel off greeting.

Please pop over to KS blog challenge and share your latest projects.
