The city scene was handdrawn onto Navy card using a white pen, then I coloured over some of the 'buildings' with my promarkers...
Spider Henry is raised on foam pads, and the idea is that he is swinging out of the card from the city... Hmmmmm yeah I guess you can see the!

Totally Papercrafts challenge...

Hello!! just a quickie post from me today, I have a card to show that I've made for a challenge, and I want to post it before I forget!
 This weeks challenge over at Totally papercrafts is this fabby sketch from Sue

And heres my take on it...
The gorgeous Stamp was a pressie from a friend! thanks Honey MWAH!!
I do adore these ketto's but they are a bit smaller than I thought, and a bit tricky to colour...

when I made this card there was a doodling challenge going on somewhere, but I can't find it now, if anyone knows can you point me in the right direction??
Went a tad OTT on the doodling...oops!

I was going to save one for tomorrow, but I've made them both for challenges and I don't want to miss them!

First up is Dahlia Anya... I've had this lil baby for ages now... and have only inked her once!! That had to be remedied!!

This card is for the Anya Ink Challenge... which is Buttons and Bows
And for Allsorts which is Lace and/or buttons (I went for 'or' lol!)
I'm hoping I can also qualify for Kaboodle Doodles, who have asked for 'anything goes, with a dash of purple' although you can't tell from the photo, the card base, and Anyas hair are purple, and there is purple in the paper and purple pearls...

'Hugs and Fishes' A challenge card...

Well... I've decided...
I'm on a one woman mission to get this blog active again!!!
Its definately been getting a bit 'stale' and only posting on a Saturday is just not good enough is it?

So, I've been playing around with the new blogger features, and 'freshened' the place up a bit...
and have made a few essential crafty purchases to lift my spirits... ;)
So all thats left to do is:
Bring on the challenges!!!

I'm head over heels in Lurve with these new Sweet November mermaids from CC designs 
This stunner is Coral Reefweaver...
Isn't she beautiful?!?

I've followed the sketch over at Truly Scrumptious

But I wanted to get the effect of her sitting with her tail in the water, so I didn't frame the image, hope thats okay?

I'm also entering this for A Spoonful of Sugars 'Enjoying the Sunshine' challenge

HUGE thanks for stopping by... Hopefully things will get a little bit more interesting in this neck of the woods from now on!!

I'll be back tomorrow!
