Puffing Billy Dinner Special

What a great night out on  the Puffing Billy Dinner Special.  I have used Retro Designs new kit, "Natrure Notes for the page, the kit has some great elements.  You can find the kit at Retro Designs Shop

Halloween Colours

A Day for a Daisy is having a challenge at the moment where you have to use Halloween colours, thought it would be great to use those colours but not necessarily a halloween image.  I have used an image from A Day for A Daisy called "Gift from stars".  The moon face and bats are from Createwings new digital kit October Night, if you like her facebook page, you can get the kit for free.

To get the smokey night sky background, I printed the background black, but on toner saver mode, so it would not be too dark, then I distressed the black area with cream chalks, black, grey and silver.  The image was coloured with Copics and Touch Pens, some leaves are 3D. I have used some glitter on the leaves and on the branch, mounted on green cardstock.  A cute Halloween card:

Trick or Treat

This card for Halloween features a Witch that I have drawn, I called the image Dinner Time and have entered her in the Digital Drawing Challenges at CDAC for October.  I thought I might play with her a bit and gave her a cobweb dress and coloured her with copic and touch pens, mounted the image on an orange card with gold paper and hessian.  Now, even an old witch deserves a bit of glitter in her life, so I added some gold glitter to the flowers, to cheer her up.  I've entered the card into the Try it Tuesday Halloween Challenge.

A Visit to the Dentist

This little card has been made for my Grandson who ended up in hospital for a tooth extraction.  Jordan like his grandmother, doesn't like dentists very much and he was very brave.
I have used  Toadstool Thicket and part of a freebie called Spoonful of Honey from Digistamp for Joy.  I have also added a little tooth fairy from A Day for Daisies.  Bit of bling, bit of glitter and of course a bravey award.  Card has been entered into the anything goes challenge at Digistamps for Joy blog challenge

Toadstool Thicket

New image for CDAC Progressive Challenge No 22,  is "Toadstool Thicket" by Digistamps for Joy.

For the Toadstool Thicket, I added a cute little mouse, which was part of a freebie from Digistamps for Joy, he just seemed to fit under the leaves.  Coloured in copics and touch pens, added lots of flowers and leaves, scalloped three edges and mounted on green cardstock.

A Stitch in Time

First of two new images for CDAC Progressive Challenge No 22,  is "A stitch in Time" by Patties Creations.

I made a cover for a journal with A Stitch in Time, coloured with copics, added some material, cotton to sew on the buttons and some gems for the pin heads.

Lucky enough to get picked as a star.

Although Halloween is growing in popularity in Australia, it was never anything that we took any notice of growing up, but I can remember our children going out maybe once or twice when they were in school.  Today in the supermarket there are lots of things to buy for the night. So I suppose I had better buy in some treats in case anyone knocks on our door this year. Over at the Crafters Cafe Challenge Blog, the challenge for the month of October is Halloween with distressing.  I have used a number of overlays from Lettering Delights called Bootiful Overlays, added a black cat, did some distressing with Brilliance Lighting Black Ink, mounted the image onto some sparkly silver card and then onto a black card.The little Jack O'Lanten is one I created digitally a while ago.  Hope you like it.

A very cute pig by Doodle Pantry called "Mud Piggy" is the image for the CDAC Progressive Challenge No 21, and I was lucky to be chosen as one of the stars for this challenge.  I created a gift card. The pig has been coloured with Copic and Touch Pens, cut out with a ribbon attrached to her tail, and with her little flower fascinator she is ready to adorn someone specials present.
