Magic inside us




Good day

It is time for Catch the Bug's weekly challenge with my favourite bingo! and I have joined them once again as guest designer. This time I have played with a Harry Potter collage, I was searching for some real adventures paper that will go well with the image and for my son, who will celebrate his birthday next week. Then this piece popped up. I have coloured the image with Prisma pencils and added some bling with gel pens. I used the bottom row left to right.

Challenge I took inspiration from:
The Male Room #122 - Halloween
Cheerful Sketches - October challenge
Colour Crazy Craft challenge#41 - Anything goes
The Outlawz Festive Friday 18 Oct - 1 Nov - Anything goes
Cute Card Thursday #604 - Spots & Dots

Thank you for your visit and hope to see you at Catch the Bug's bingo challenge!

Happy Fall Y'all at Catch the Bug



Good day

It is Saturday and I have the honour to play along at Catch the Bug as Guest Designer again. Out theme is Happy Fall Y'all. I love autumn colours, though we are in the beginning of Spring here in the Southern Hemisphere. Since end of autumn is also the start of the hunting season, I thought I'll use Gus Hunting. My papers is from my stash. I have also used some handmade paper that was made with wild animal dung. I bought it some years ago at a local paper shop. Image was coloured with Prisma pencils.

Challenges I used as inspiration:
The Sisterhood of Crafters - A "wood related" theme autumn
Incy Wincy 7-19 Oct - Autumn colours
Crafty Calender October - Autumn/Halloween

Hope you'll come and join us at Catch the Bug with your fall creations!

Creative moments




Good day

There is not much time left in this year. Can't believe we are in October. It is the 7th today and it is time for a new challenge at Creative Moments the theme is make something Spooky. This time around we are sponsored by Creative Bug. I choice "Twiggs", since I do not do spooky or Halloween. I decided to challenge myself for a one layered card and to player with some watercolours. I used some wet embossing on the snow flakes and some glitter on the snow, though that is not quite visible.

Hope you will come and join us.

Lasting memories



Good day

This image - Taking Pics from Sheepski - has been on my table for quite a while now. Everytime I want to start it, life happens. I used designer paper from the World Traveler collection from BoBunny, though the middle strip is from a scrapbook paper. I made this for a friend who loves taking pictures with his camera and of course travelling. Image was coloured with Prisma Pencils.

A chirpi autumn





Good day

When I saw the orange challenge at Double D, my eyes saw this image on my desk and it said it wanted to be coloured in orange. I think the biggest challenge was her hair, luckily you do get ginger heads as well. The gingham is from Sunny Studio and the rose vellum from my stash. I've coloured the image with Prisma pencils and the sentiment was embossed with some glittered powder. Some sequinces add the final touch with a glittered flower.

Challenges I'm joining:
All Dressed Up #97 - Anything goes with ADU image
Double D - Orange & white only
The Outlawz Colour Challenge 24 September - 7 October - Diecut,Glitter, Embossing
The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge - 2 October - 15 October

Thank you and have a great day!
