Holiday Creating

card2-2-110116What fun to have some time to craft with the school holidays here and Christmas over once again for another year!  I’m constantly amazed at people who can simply fit it ALL in!  Craft, work, family, craft!  I seem to run out of time, but then I also include my books – can’t go a day without reading 🙂

Today I thought I’d share one of the images I’ve coloured recently as well as a quick CAS card for a challenge.  My first card had me pulling out my Prismacolor pencils which have been gathering dust for at least a year, but are well and truly on my revival list.



I bought this gorgeous image from Mo’s Digital Pencil just the other day called Airborne and printed it on to a pencil friendly card stock and included a sentiment to save me adding it later (I can rarely get it straight if I stamp it after the fact).


My colouring is a little rusty, but I have to admit I had a fabulous time practising! I used Zest-It to blend, and because I used so many colours I put them away and so don’t have a list this time round.  The balloon colours were for the colour challenge on Splitcoast CC563.


Next is a very quick card for the CASology challenge – Simple!  I used stamps from my Scribble Scrabble Circle set and Distress Inks, but printed my sentiment to suit the challenge but also to give to my husband, either for Valentines or wedding anniversary.

Week 179 - Simple


Thanks for stopping by and I hope your New Year was fabulous!

    Happy new year Andrea! How lovely to see your beautifully coloured cards as we drive home from the Dandenongs. I thought of you as we saw the sign for your suburb. Xxx


  2. Andrea, let me just say that I love the name of your blog, and adore your logo! Secondly, these cards are beautiful! I am smitten with the second one. Love those overlapping scribble, scrabble circles. Such an effective, eye catching design. So glad you could join us at CASology this week!


  3. Super cute image and fantastic stamping and colouring! Since I started using the MISTI I tend to stress a lot less about stamping the sentiment after, it makes it so much easier (especially when so much work has gone into a design)
