We go together like.........

Back again for my second post of the day!

For Copic Europe today I thought I'd share with you the card I made my dear husband, Peter for Valentine's Day!

This simple image did pose a challenge ......... how to colour "white"
I tend to use a combination of pale blues and greys, focusing on the shadows to give my objects shape and depth - above all resist the temptation to leave it blank!

Background paper from stash
Polaroid die - Quickutz
Cookie - W8, E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, R20, E23, E25, E27, E29, RV32, RV34, B0000, W7, V20

Thinking of you

It's Tuesday, so that means we have another challenge over at Tiddly Inks and this time the theme is - "Thinking of you"

I've opted for a very simple layout, no sentiment and not a cm of background paper.  I merely mounted my coloured image on to a plain white card using square foam pads!

Tiddly Inks Challenge - Kissy kissy!

We are getting all loved up at Tiddly Inks for our new challenge!

I've chosen a couple of adorable hedgehogs
(and the image is currently only $1 in store!)

Quite a simple card this time I'm afraid.........I'm still having "fun" adjusting to the lingual braces I have had fitted to my teeth in December......and it's playing havoc with my crafting!

Ho hum, I'm sure it will get better soon (I hope) and then I'll be colouring up a storm like a woman possessed and posting/sharing lots of new stuff!
