Two of the Girls

These are the final two cards which I made for Craftwork Cards.

Part of the Dolly Mixtures collection by Craftwork Cards comprises postcards of the three girls who make up the collection, Amy, Coleen and Cheryl.  These are great for colouring in with ProMarkers, Copics etc.  I don't really 'do' colouring in as I always seem to find that whatever I do looks a mess!  But... I coloured in part of Amy and it didn't look too bad.  Here is the finished card:

I wasn't brave enough to colour Amy's dress but then I coloured in Cheryl and decided to go for it!  Here is the card I made:

The colouring is nowhere near as good as it could be but I don't think it's too bad.  There are lots of videos on You Tube that are worth watching but I guess the old saying practice makes perfect is relevant here!

Little Scottie Dogs

Here are three more of the samples which I made for Craftwork Cards to display this weekend.  All three feature the gorgeous scottie dog die cuts and Dolly Mixtures goodies.

I love the coat on this card:

Next I used a kraft card blank and lots of crushed Candi.

Here's a close up to show the detail:

Finally another kraft blank.  I cut away part of the front of this card and the tartan paper at the right is actually inside the card:

I used some kraft Candi on this card - I spotted it in clearance on the Craftwork Cards website and it's really nice so get some while you still can!

Pen Holder

Here are some pictures of a pen holder which I made from an empty coffee tin and some Dolly Mixtures products.

This is one of several samples which I made for Craftwork Cards to display on their stand at Alexandra Palace this weekend.

I love the little scottie dog die cuts - they work so well with these papers.

Two Quick and Easy Cards

I made this using a kraft blank from Craftwork Cards and two of these kraft flowers.  I used the pieces which I popped out of the petals on the large flower to create a third flower.  The sentiment is an In Circle message and I finished the card off with some Candi.
For my second card I used paper from the Flower Fusion Paper Pack - the flowers were cut using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.  I added crushed Candi round the the edges of a black and silver frame before attaching the flowers to the frame and adding more crushed Candi to form the centre of the flower.  Again the sentiment is an In Circle message.
Here is a close up of the frame:
