Quickly sharing this "Blooming Cold" altered index card before the weather turns nice and sunny - we are now in Spring so things are slowly warming up!!! Digi stamps by Vera Lane Studio and I did a bit of a play on words with the penguin wearing a floral hat!!

Lil Tricksters....

September 15th 2017

A fun new digi set release from Vera Lane Studio "Lil Tricksters"!!!! This set has 8 digis - 6 lil characters plus a sentiment and bowl of eyeballs LOL!!! Great value and so much fun for Halloween coming up! We really don't celebrate Halloween here but I love to create Halloween style projects at any time of the year!!

These two (above and below) I added to a double tag with mixed media background. Digis coloured with copics and fussy cut and I used the set sentiment!

I printed off 2 more of the Lil Tricksters - the skeleton and the little pirate - so cute! These were both added to pages in my mini journal. I love the colours of both of these pages!

I think some of these characters would also be great for little boy birthday cards and invitations as well - they are great and spooky cute!! Make sure you check out the Vera Lane Studio Etsy Store for more great little quirky and cute characters to create with!

Bugs & Birds.....

September 8th 2017
An altered index card made for one of this months Facebook challenges at the Gecko Galz Facebook Group with the them of Bugs & Birds.

I used several Gecko Galz collage sheet sets for this card - background images are from the "Fly Away Jewels" set - I cut them all out and stuck them down patchwork style to the card base and added a wash of Gesso all over. The butterflies are from the "Butterfly Jewels" sheet and I fussy cut them and added to the card with an ink sprayed piece of muslin cloith, some blue pearls and some little bits of sparkly Stampendous Shaved Ice - a little hard to see in the pic. To finish I added the "fly" letters in the bottom corner and edged the card with a dark blue ink pad.
