Something Else on Saturday #162 Featuring Rockabilly Girls from C.C. Designs

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. This week I have used the adorable Rockabilly Girl from C.C. Designs, but this was the digital version from way back when they still did digi stamps. It is still available as a clear rubber stamp set though. 

I went for a fairly simple design on this one, mainly because I wanted the girls to stand out and the background needed to be cute but more neutral as they are so brightly coloured too. I added a fun sentiment from an old Whimsy Stamps set, added a bow in the corner and a few gems and it was all done!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #518 - Under The Sea

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week's challenge is called Under The Sea, so we would love to see your cards and projects showing things you can find under the sea. It can be sea life animals and plants, submarines, mermaids, whatever else you can think of! 

I used the gorgeous The Mermaid and the Treasure with the accompanying background paper. To create this scene, I printed the patterned paper with the PNG file over the top in the right position. Then I printed the same sized image again, before colouring and fussy cutting her out. It was very fiddly to cut out but so worth it as I love how this one cam out in the end. It didn't need much in the way of decorating so I just added some glittery bubbles and a sentiment!

All Things Magical and Mythical #44 Featuring Unicorn from Simply Sweet Stamps

Good morning and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mystical post. I found this image in my already coloured pile and thought she would be perfect for today's post. The unicorn set is from Simply Sweet Stamps and was sold through Lily of the Valley Stamps. 

I wanted her on or with a rainbow and thought I would use my new Over The Rainbow stencil set from Altenew. I have to say it was very fiddly to use with inks having to tape down every section and hold the ends while trying to use my blender brush at the same time. It also left gaps between some of the arcs, but I went over the whole rainbow with my clear Wink of Stella brush pen and it blended it all together much better. Looks almost water coloured with a touch of shimmer now!

All Things Magical and Mythical #43 Featuring Alyce Copic Fairy from The Stamping Chef

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mystical post. For this week's card, I pulled out a very old digi, which I coloured up many many years ago now for a promo when I was on The Stamping Chef design team. Unfortunately the company is no more, but I just happened to find this already coloured image in a box of old bits and bobs and thought it would be a great one to use.

As it has been so long since I coloured her, I'm not 100% certain of the copic combos I used back then, but have guessed at what I think they might be! I couldn't find any papers with my colour combos on! 

I made this cute scene using my Fairy Door die from Tonic Studios, another die bought so long ago and only used once! I am trying to use some of the stuff I have, really to justify all that spending! LOL

This card is for

Recipe:

Stamps: Alyce Copic Fairy from The Stamping Chef, Enchanted Lily from Pink Cat Studio
