Red and Green??

Red and Green??

Hi everyone, I hope that you're all well and are having a wonderful week. Will 
any of you be watching the partial eclipse this morning? I'm not too sure if I will 
be watching it or not, I wasn't lucky enough to see the Northern Lights again :( 
I've been super lucky to have seen them twice already but unfortunately we had 
an awful lot of cloud cover here along the North East Coast. 

Anyhoo onto my post for today in which I've used one of my 'Hannah Lynn' 
digi images, it seems like such a long time since I coloured one of her images 
up, this image is called 'Aliah' I thought I would colour her up as a red head with 
luminous green eyes. 




Card Recipe
6x6 white card, lime green bazzill, basic grey's sweet threads design papers, lime green satin 
ribbon & lime green pearls 






I coloured this gorgeous image using pro/flexmarkers in the following colours 
skin ~ coral, dusky pink, blush, almond and pastel pink
hair ~ apricot, burnt orange and burnt umber 
eyes ~ soft lime, lime zest, pear green and marsh green 
blooms ~ fresh bloom, rose pink and antique pink 
I also used sakura gelly roll to highlight her hair 

I'm off to do the weekly grocery shop. Take care and enjoy your weekend everyone.

Orchids

Orchids

Hi everyone, I hope that you're all having the lovely weather that we are having here 
on the North East coast. It's been glorious today so my Spring cleaning has been put 
on the back burner so's to speak, well it was just too lovely a day to spend it indoors, 
so I've been for a lovely walk along the sea front and I've also spent some more 
time in the garden. 

The card that I would like to share with you all today is my first "Jeremiah Ketner" 
image, she's called "ORCHID" and I think she's so pretty. 




Card Recipe
6x6 white base card, mink coloured bazzill card, first edition design papers, pale lilac 
berisfords satin ribbon and hand tied bow, peach rosebuds from WOC and white opal
 liquid pearls 




To colour this beautiful digi image I have used a selection of pro/flexmarkers in the 
following colours 
skin ~ coral, dusky pink, blush, almond and tea rose 
hair ~ satin, tan, tawny owl and shale 
orchids and blooms in her hair ~ pink mittens, lavender, iced pearl, amethyst, 
starfish, honeycomb and burnt umber
I also used stardust gelly roll to highlight her hair too





I had so much fun colouring this beautiful image up and I'm pretty sure I will be 
heading back to "Jeremiah Ketner's" Etsy store very soon to be buying some more 
of his gorgeous images.

Golden Wedding

Golden Wedding

Hi everyone, I hope that you're all well and have had a lovely weekend. 
I've been making the most of the warmish weather and have spent some 
time out in the gardens getting them ready for the summer. My poor back 
has been protesting today so I think I may have overdone things a little lol, 
but once I got started I just lost all track of time and I really wanted to tackle 
the weeds while they're small and before they start to flower and seed. I've 
also bought some new slug and snail pellets that are non poisonous to birds 
and animals, because we had an awful lot of snails last year so I wanted to 
make sure my plants weren't munched by the little beggers this year.

It was my Mam & Dads Golden Wedding last week too and this is the 
card that I made for them.




Card Recipe
6x6 Ivory Card, Prima Fairy Belle Design Papers, Gold Mirri & White Super Smooth Card, 




Marianne Anja Border and Circle Dies, SU Crumb Cake Ink Pad, Tim Holtz 
Distress Ink Pad, Soft Gold Berisfords Satin Ribbon & Guipure Lace





Ivory Pearls, Mulberry, Lilies, Roses, Rosebuds and Blooms from WOC, Pretty 
Topper from my crafty stash and Handmade Sentiment.



I'm going to tackle some spring cleaning today, sort through wardrobes 
and bag some clothes, shoes and bags up for the charity shop. I hope that 
you all enjoy the rest of today.
