Hello everyone,

Hope all is well with you and yours.

Had some fun with this one....love this digi called Tempest of Ice from Stamps by Aurora Wings. I couldn't resist having a go at colouring with Copics and pencils.  I created a night sky using blue ink and splashed a little white using a toothbrush. Simple frame to complete the scene.

***Goth/Punks***

 Hello everyone,

Hope you are having a good week

Today starts a new challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #550

where our team mate Buffy has chosen the theme

"Goth or Punk"

I did have trouble with this one 
then I thought of a pre-coloured Mo's digital Pencil image
 and decided to make her work on this slimline card.
I was thinking she is waving the rose...and the sentiment came to mind.
A Lawn Fawn stamp and Heidi Swapp stencil used for the dots then sequins added.

*** One for the Boys***

Good morning everyone,

Today starts a new challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #548

where our lovely Buffy has chosen the theme "Masculine"

After clearing out a lot of my stash earlier this year I convinced myself I did not need any more craft goodies and held off for almost 3 months...but oh..when I saw these cute panda's at Whimsy I broke down.  I have used it here for a masculine card but can see many uses for this trio.  The paper is a very old Basic Grey boxer that I've been hoarding. Fingers shook on first cut into the 12x12 sheet.

****Heartfelt***

 Hello everyone,

Today starts a new Challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #547

hosted by our lovely N-Eva

with a theme of "Hand Coloured Image"

I have chosen to colour with copics and pencils a sunflower digital image created by
Poppy Power by Marcella Hawley called "Sunflower Power".   This very thoughtful designer created this image to help the wonderful people of Ukraine.  All proceeds go toward "Sunflowers for Peace".  I purchased the Sunflower Peace set separately and this image was free.
For me like many others Ukraine is never far from my thoughts. 

I did make a bit of a mess when adding the background.  I fussy cut the image on scrap paper and masked onto the flowers.  I think it might be my choice of ink that I'm not pleased with.  Will have to do some research to perfect this technique.
