Father's Day

Hi everyone. A super quick post from me today showing the couple of cards that I made for Dad for this Father's Day.

 This one is a photo that I took on our recent holiday to the Norway Fjords.

And this one is made using an image from Crafter's Companion's Halcyon Days CD Rom. Love the imagery on this!!!!

Scruffy Little Cat - Ashleigh

Been sooooooooooooooo busy with creating cards that I just haven't had the time to post anything for ages so I thought I'd make up for it now by posting a few different looking cards that I recently created for The Craft Barn's Extravaganza Weekend using just one of the new stamp releases by Crafter's Companion from the Scruffy Little Cat range called Ashleigh.  So here goes........

 Papers are from the Vintage Spring paper pad by Maja Designs.

A closer look at the colouring which was achieved using Spectrum Noir pens and pencils which I am just loving!!  As most of you know I've always been a Copic girl but I can honestly say that I am loving the new generation Spectrum Noir pens - I haven't put any of the interchangable brush tips into mine yet but am achieving a good blend just with the bullet tip.
This is my take on a clean and simple card using this image - again coloured using Spectrum Noir pens and pencils with Pumice Stone Distress ink for the background around Ashleigh.

Another simple card using just the Grand Labels Four die from Spellbinders to give a different feel to the card. Papers again from the Vintage Spring paper pad.

A closer look at the colouring again - I used the same colours as the clean and simple card - mainly warm greys and golden browns from the Spectrum Noir range.

I have a class coming up at The Craft Barn at the end of July featuring how to colour these sort of images using Spectrum Noir pens and pencils. If anyone is interested click here for more details :)
