Hoppy Birthday!

Afternoon all! 
We've got two new lovely 2 Cute DT members and BOY are they good!
So I'm trying to up my game a bit with colouring and trying some new techniques,
ok what I mean is that I'm not just block colouring which is what I normally do lol

So using a helpful chart a friend sent me, I've coloured in Birthday Froggie, 

Promarker colours used:
Frog - Lime Green, Lime Zest and Soft Lime
Cupcake Heart - Maroon, Fuchsia Pink and Pink Carnation
Cupcake Frosting - Antique Pink, Salmon Pink and Cocktail Pink
Cupcake Base - Ginger, Saffron and Oatmeal
Flame - Sunflower, Tulip and Buttercup
Outline - Twilight Sky and April Shower (Autumn and Spring ltd edition sets)

This whole mixing colours and stuff means my list is a LOT longer than usual lol

Anyway, have great week everyone

New Mum

A quick card made for a new mum at work.
Using Tim Holtz butterfly die.
Just splashes of spray mists and some gems, but otherwise

Here Be Dragons!


So I had a lovely day off work today and thought I'd play with my 
new favourite Tiddly Inks image Fantasy Friends Dragon

I just LOVE him and had great fun colouring him in with my new
autumn promarkers :)

Tag is made up of Distress Inks:
Crushed Olive / Dusty Concord
Festive Berries / Evergreen Bough - Winter edition
Peacock Feathers - Summer edition

I then used a 6x6 mask (swirly vine) with gold acrylic paint to add to
the background, some stamped up crystals and finally some doodles!

To add a bit of sparkle, added some gems along the swirls and
my all time favourite sakura pen - Star Dust (#700)
