MAWTT challenge In the WILD (Day 23)

We love 4x4'ing and off-roading although we don't nearly get enough chance to do so with our hectic lifestyle! So when I saw our challenge at Moving Along With The Times, "IN THE WILD", I just had to set my sights on the wild outdoors:
It's also the first time I'm inking up this very cool Itty Bitty, Having Fun, from Unity Stamp Co. I quickly coloured it with the broad nib of a light blue Spectrum Noir marker and just went around the outline as well with a tan one.
The trees in the background was done with some generational stamping using GinaK Designs. I didn't find the stamp set in the shop so sadly I'm thinking it was discontinued :(

In the Wild can be country, weather, animal or whatever this means to you!
We hope the challenge calls you to join in !

This is also Day 23 of the 30-day Colouring challenge!!

30 Day Colouring Day 22

In the home stretch!!!

Remember these that look like this are just coloured images that will be made into cards in future. I struggle to photograph them clearly because of the nearness of the phone camera to the paper I think...

So here's DAY 22!!!!  Anyone for a spot of tea?

All occasions Sunflower

Here's a quick card I made to fit some challenges (listed below):
Flower stamp: GinaK Designs  "A Year of Flowers" - I just shaded it with a finger dauber and distress inks. The top flower was popped up with foam tape on top of a plain image (fussy cut).
Leaves die-cut: Spellbinders - Also shaded with distress inks

I made a card for the following challenges:

Sliding it in right at the end!!

This will also be my Day 21 card for the 30-day Colouring Challenge!

Take care everyone!

Viva La Verve sketch 1

Here's a card using Viva la Verve's sketch for March week 1:

 I used GinaK Designs "A Year of Flowers" for the rose and the sentiment from "Whimsical Wishes"
Colouring was done with pencils & then shaded with artist thinners. It was a bit bright to match the papers so I shaded over it with Antique Linen distress ink. (This was my colouring for Day 11).
I would also like to make this my 3rd entry into the World Wide Open DT challenge:

Take care all!

DS4J new release - Tier Cake (for Day 20)

My second new image today is this cake that I drew so that it can either be a classy birthday cake or a wedding cake. It's quick to colour and easy to cut out. I did 3 layers of the bottom tier, 2 of the middle tier and paper piecing in a single layer at the top:

 The sentiment and its frame is from Unity Stamp Co "Basically said"

I used Week 2's sketch from Viva la Verve:
I'm going to post this tomorrow for my Day 20 of the 30-day-colouring challenge:

Thank you for visiting!

DS4J new release - Chinese Lanterns (Colour challenge Day 19)

Hope you are all well on this Lord's Day.  It's our bi-weekly New Release Sunday at Digistamps4Joy and I have two new releases today. First up is my Chinese Lanterns:

The stamp image has the three lanterns hanging on a drawn line. I cut them out separate to do paper piecing on the tag and switched them around a bit too. I glued some twine down for the line.

The images were coloured with pencils & shaded using artist's thinners. (So here's to Day 19 of the 30 Day Colouring challenge!   #thedailymarker30day)

The background on the tag was created with some distress ink & stamping with silhouette stamps from the Unity Stamp Co's September 2013 Kit of the month.

My other image, Tier Cake, will be in a separate post.
