Snowman Tag maybe

 Hi everyone, this month's image for The Outlawz , Progressive Freebie is Challenge is Mr Squiggles drawn by Cara.

I decided to practice with my pencils and coloured the snowman with Prismacolour pencils. Firstly to show my husband what ombre was in colouring as our daughter had her nails done last week in blue ombre, but as her father has a form of colour blindness, the subtle changes were not apparent to him, so I made them more prominent.

Couldn't resist adding colour to the yellow nose and rosy cheeks though.  Marker snow and some glitter completed the image.   

Rummaging through a box for a label, I came across a pad of labels I bought a long time ago and I am sorry I can't remember where as I would love to have more of these labels.

At this stage I have made a tag, but maybe I might turn him into a card.  The square at the top with the hole, is perforated and can be removed, leaving the top the same shape as the bottom.

Crafter's Cafe - 15th January, 2024

 This month's challenge is to decorate the edges of your project, deckle, stamp, ink, fancy cut etc, whatever you would like to do with the edges.

The sponsor is the wonderful Polkadoodles, check out the challenge blog to get all the details

I chose to use Rebel Girl for a card that I am giving to a friend going through a hard time.  Something totally new for me, I printed the image on top of some digitally patterned paper, coloured the image with Prismacolour pencils.

For the edges I distressed them and then added  glue and some Gold Glitter.

Festive at The Outlawz - 5th January, 2024

 Hi everyone, my first time on the team at Festive Fridays.  The themes for this month are:

Love is in the Air
Fun in the Snow
Something New

 I've chosen to create with the Christmas theme, using  Hettie's, "Beach Pony Float".  Coloured with copic pens and glitter, layered onto some striped paper.  Would have to say the sentiment is perfect for 99% of our Christmas days, sadly not the recent one, rained all day

A place to Start , 1st January 2024

Happy New Year.  Let's hope 2024 sees as creating more.

The optional theme to start the new year is to make a Gatefold Card.

I haven't made one for years, but think there could be more coming this year, I had great fun using patterned papers from Uniquely Creative and diecuts from 49 and Market.

The Happy Birthday was made with a Stampin Up die, I used 4 layers of white and one layer on patterned paper.
