Saturated Canary in Aqua tones

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a new card with a gorgeous Saturated Canary stamp-I seem to be addicted to them at the moment! ;-)
I was practicing my colouring aided by the great videos on youtube by Make it Crafty and the tutorials I used were the black hair and the pleats on clothes one. I am quite pleased with how well they both came out considering this is my first try! Thank you to Zoe for helping me :-) I used Promarkers and flexmarkers as those are the pens I own but you can still learn by substituting the Copics for the PM's :-)
I also used Papermania Capsule collection papers and gems, Craftime glitter card and butterfly embellishment, American crafts polka dot ribbon and a dome greeting.

I love Butterflies because they remind you of the beauty of life, I raise a couple of broods a year and here is a photo of one my last set I released a few weeks ago :-) I truly never get tired of doing this, they are so beautiful and delicate and make me appreciate life in all its glory :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Our Creative Corner: Butterflies
Card Makin Mamas: Make it Girly
Delicious Doodles: Lots of Layers
Inspire Me Fridays: Anything Goes
Paper Crafting Journey: Use three or more patterned papers
Sundays with Chrissie: Your Favourite Colour Combo

An exciting new challenge for all my crafty friends!

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to announce something new for my blog that I hope you will all get involved in! :-) I quite often make items which don't fit into a 'card or scrapbook' page category and often struggle to find places to show these in blogland. I thought I would remedy this by making a new two monthly 'Anything goes' challenge where we can all inspire each other with the different crafts we have been playing with! :-) So I mean jewellery, altered items, knitting, etc etc.

I will choose items to showcase on my blog throughout the challenge with a link to your blog to show the talent out there and hold a draw every couple of months of all the entries to win prizes-this first challenge will be sponsored by the wonderful Sarah Hurley-you can drool over all her lovely items at her etsy store here!
I encourage all of you to pop by each others blogs for some fabulous ideas, fun and mostly to meet other like minded crafters and hopeful…

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
