I decided to have a different play with the image this week and use it on a Christmas cracker. (Tonic die). So I re-sized the digital image to fit the rectangle on the cracker and I split the drawing from the Happy Holiday sentiment. After cutting out all the pieces using the various dies, I coloured the digital image using my trusted Copic Ciao pens. The main cracker was cut in black card and I used some red and silver card on one of the crackers too. A fun project and I like the end result.
This week’s cards are made with Twisted Circus 12 Odd Oracles Sagittarius Creepy Cute Zodiac # 486 image from Oddball Art.
I started off finding a sagittarius star background for my card and mounted that on gold card. Then I printed and coloured in the digi image using copic ciao pens and again mounted this on gold card. When adding it to the existing layer I twisted it slightly. Finishing touch was a little bit of blink in the form of crystals in a matching colour.
The image was printed on 160 gsm paper and mounted on a 6 x 6 white card.

Bugaboo Stamps make such fun and quirky stamps – I love the fun and life in them – and the sentiments always make me laugh!
So this card is a real summer stunner. Ladybirds had to feature high on this card – I love them but sadly we don’t see as many nowadays as we used to when I was a littel girl. For those of you who follow this page it probably comes as no surprise that I had to do some decoupage with this one too.
I printed the image several times. Made an extra frame with the ladybird. Cut out several layers to decoupage up after they had been coloured using my Copic Ciao’s. When done I layered it all up on a 6 x 6 quite card.
A really cute and fun design which I printed a couple of times and cut into the images to create a couple of decoupage layers. Then I coloured with my trusty Copic Ciao pens. The image was mounted on a couple of squares (using Carnation dies) and the Twins was cut with a First Edition alphabet die set. Finally everything was mounted onto a white 6 x 6 card.

This image made me think of fashion, so I thought what if I create a shop window which will depict mannequins with dresses in different colours.
The image was printed 5 times and coloured in 5 different colours using my Zig pens – Yellow, Bright Yellow, Pink, Purple and Blue. I decided not to colour in the bodies or the hair so the dresses would have an extra wow factor. I decorated with a little “diamond” at the top of the dress.
The images were added to an A5 black card, which had a white mat on top, a black strip of card and 5 die-cut strips. The final touch was die cut letters to spell out Congrats. I think this card could be great for a school leaver or for a birthday.
A brick wall is a fabulous blank canvas for almost any theme which is why I opted for the Brick Wall. I could have gone all pinks and floral on a nice grey background with lots of green. But I didn’t! Instead I decided to go with a cool boys cards.
I started by copying and pasting the Brick Wall image several times in a Word Document until I had an A4 page full of bricks. I then proceeded to cut out a piece of wall to fit my 6 x 6 card. I coloured the wall using Jim Holtz Distress Ink – Pumice Stone making sure I did it rough and uneven and leaving a few places almost white. I also cut out a few individual bricks and coloured these in Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
The boy image and sentiments are from Polkadoodles. They were coloured using ZIG real brush pens.
I chose a white 6 x 6 inch card which got a black mat which I stuck my Brick Wall to. I added the boy charactar and the sentiments before placing the small individual tiles around the card mounted on foam pads to add dimension. Fairly quick card with enough grunge to keep any young boy happy!
