Two colours I don't use together a lot and from the sounds of things, my teamies found it hard going too. But we made it!    This weeks challenge at Make it Colourful is to use yellow and purple together on your card.  Why don't you give it a go....go on...YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!!!!! 

We're sponsored this week by Magnolialicious and I've used Tilda spreads love along with the background images  MIC Big Tree and Daffodil Dell .
The colours I've used are:

Quick Post

Just quickly posting a card made for a friend's mother a few weeks ago to give to her granddaughter.  Only specifications were it had to be feminine!!!     I used some K & Co paper and this cute Tickled Pink image, lots of flowers and stickles! The lace is from WOC.

Fun in the sun!

The new release of digis and rubber stamps over at Make it Crafty are sooooo cute!   We've been hanging out to play with these babies and this weeks challenge at Make it Colourful is to colour a water scene so its perfect!
I've used   Miss Charlotte layered with the Tropical Waterfall background. And yes, Shirl will probably tell you I had fun colouring this... I was blindly colouring what I thought were big leaves and EEEEEK ! It was part of her headscarf.  Can you tell? Huh? I think I saved it ......just....
 Then I stickled the chipboard corners and dropped one on the cat's back.   He now has a lovely patch of stickles and my card has some additional ginger hairs attached! LMAO!

The paper is Prima, the flower and leaves are a Marianne Die and the seam binding I coloured with Soot Distress Ink. The butterflies are from MIC also , and I've used glossy accents over the stickles on these.

This week we are sponsored by Quixotic Paperie in the UK.

and you can find a lot of the MIC rubber stamps here, along with the wonderful MIC lasercut chipboard which we all LOVE!!!!!

Lets get dotty!

Howdy doody!  Its a crazy autumn Saturday here and we've had blinding sunshine and heavy rain,  but at least its still  warm! Worse is to come......shudder!!!! 

This weeks challenge at Make it Colourful we want you to use dots to colour your background.  I've used copics to colour my image which is a cutie digi from Crissy Armstrong ( who is our sponsor this week) , called Nose to Nose. And yes , its cute cos it has a wee doggie in it about to slobber all over her face!   I've merged it with the MIC Timber top ridge setting.

I've used Prima Raspberry tea paper, with hand-dyed ( using distress inks)  seambinding, a WOC flower, a magnolia die flower painted, then added crackle accents.  The metal strip is from Ten Second studio which I've had for ages but hardly played many toys, so little time! Sigh.....
The chipboard corner from MIC is coloured with copics then coated in distress stickles.

Just playing

I was sent these Whiff of joy stamps by the lovely Deb of Deb's Creations a while ago and decided it was time to have a play colouring them and practise some folds.
The paper is MME Bella Bella, with weathered wood distress crackle paint around the edge. The die cut is Marianne D Creatable and the ribbon is seam binding dyed with Tea dye distress ink.
  I got the gorgeous butterflies , the flower buds and the crinoline to make the flower from my lovely friend Linda,  The Funkie Junkie who has sourced lots of lovely lace, appliques and other gorgeous vintage bits and pieces and sells them in her etsy shop.    Linda also has several fab tutorials HERE and HERE on making the flowers on her blog.
I used weathered wood distress ink to dye the crinoline. I need another sized die to cut the crinoline to make a fuller flower i think! Doesn't help that I somehow squashed it all up before taking the pic! Arrrrggghh! Too lazy to take another pic though so you'll just have to pop over to Linda and see what they're sposed to look like! LMAO!

I'm entering this card in the Secret Crafter- Dust off your stash  ( had the paper for years and the metal flower base too!)
