Outdoors Birthday Girl card (Little Miss Muffet image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have created 2 cards today using my favourite artists - Little Miss Muffet and Tiddly Inks. This is the gorgeous digi from Little Miss Muffet below. I have used png images so I could add a background. I've used the same background pathway on both cards but I've used it more as a cobblestone road in the next card so it's definitely versatile. You can find it at Make it Crafty.

I'm thinking of setting up a Youtube channel, would you be interested in looking at something like my Copic colouring of certain images or how to make a type of card or anything at all I might have to offer hehe? I'm not sure whether it's a path I should take so I'd love to know what you watch on Youtube or what you'd like to see.

Mixed Media background card (Hannah Lynn/Crafts & Me image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

2nd and last card for today and it's made with one of my favourite artists' images - Hannah Lynn. I also used a pearl Jasmine laser flourish from Flourish with a Bling and embossed it with an embossing folder to see what would happen - the embossing folder was a fairly plain one, just lines but I like the effect it gave. In the background I used a mixture of distress inks in yellow, orange and green and added water in parts. I then added some gold sequins, liquid pearls and some clear dots (sorry I can't remember their name, will check later). I used blue, green and yellow copic markers on her eyes.

Water fairy card (Faery Ink Designs image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's the International Comedy Festival in Melbourne (Australia) and we've got tickets to see 2 comedians tonight, I'm very excited, I think it will be a great night! So I'm going to rush through these 2 cards as quick as I can, I didn't rush the cards though so I hope you like them.

I've been trying a few mixed media backgrounds lately, it's still new to me so sometimes it's a hit sometimes a bit of a miss but that's the only way to learn by keep trying isn't it? You can find this beautiful fairy at Faery Ink Designs and the water drops are from Flourish with a Bling. I added a little glitter to the water drops but I shouldn't have because they have a much nicer glimmer to them without it.

CCC Digi Creations - add some glitter 
Come and Get it - it's a girl thing
Creatalicious - anything goes with option of Birthday

Black background Easter girl with bunny ears (CC Designs image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I printed out this image a long time ago and for some reason her toes didn't print so I never coloured her. I love this image so much that when I found her in my stash I decided to colour her anyway and figure it out later. I really like how it turned out and her toes are covered by flowers so no-one needs to know she's toe-less hehe. I scattered some liquid pearl dots and the pink hearts from the banner die. I also added part of a Flourish with a Bling Jasmine puffy flourish in white, it shimmers and looks gorgeous on this card.
