Naughty or Nice - modern or traditional

It's a new month, so that means a new challenge over at Naughty or Nice.  This month's theme is a Christmas one (of course!!) and you can go traditional or modern - A Christmas Carol versus Frozen.  Hope you'll play along and pop over to the blog to see the other Troublemakers fab creations :)  And there's a prize of some Die-namics up for grabs this month!


I've gone for the 'modern' look with my card. I watercoloured my base in the Frozen movie colours - I think every little girl in the country has either an Anna or an Elsa dress and all the other stuff that goes with it!  I wouldn't be surprised at all if you could get Frozen toilet roll!!
My singing goose is an oldie from Penny Black, and the sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers.  Paper Smooches snowflake dies.

Phoebe's birthday card

Whoops I was in a rush to take this pic and must have had my wonky eyes in at the time ;)
It's not quite finished, but I didn't want to miss the last day of the 30 day colouring challenge after I managed to keep up the rest of the month.
I reckon I'll probably add some flowers or butterflies and a bit of sparkle - if I remember I'll add the finished version.
Tiddly Inks image - coloured with watercolour pencils and highlights added to her hair with ordinary pencils.

December Calendar

Ha I'm back to my usual last minute rush calendar page for Mum, I'd been doing so well being early this past few months ;)

I haven't used this oldie Penny Black stamp for aaaaages, but you'll be seeing him again in a couple of days for my Naughty or Nice DT post!  Though actually, maybe he's a she now I think of it with all that pinkness ;)
'She' looked a bit lonely so I masked her off and stamped her a couple of buddies.
Falalalala sentiment is from a recent win from Happy Little Stampers.  Coloured with watercolour pencils; snowflake dies coloured to match.  Dates hand written.

Webster's birthday

Here's another one of my gazillion doggy stamps, this one's from Eat Cake Graphics:
Webster's tilting his head.
The sentiment is an oldie from (I think) Penny Black.
Coloured with a mix of watercolour pencils and ordinary pencils.  Sentiment popped up on dimensionals.

Sebastian's whiskers

Woops, I forgot to upload my card yesterday for the Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge, so here it is ...
I've used a sentiment from Paper Smooches and the images are from Eat Cake Graphics:
Bunch of Grass
Kitty Sebastian has very long whiskers

I tried a new technique for me here - I watercoloured my image and then highlighted areas with my ordinary pencils.  I'll be trying this again as I like how it added a bit of detail to my kitty.

Day 26 of the Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge

Twit twooo

It's the usual Sunday night quickie from me - the fabulous David Attenborough and Planet Earth II is on telly.  It's one of the few programmes that I actually sit down and watch properly!  Even the music is amazing, never mind the filming!

This card is based on this week's featured stamper challenge over at Splitcoast - here's Jan's original
My image is from Paper Smooches, not sure about the sentiment.  Coloured with watercolour pencils, sparkle added to his beak and feet, and clear gloss to his eyes/feet/beak.  Owl popped up on dimensionals.

Flowery Thanks

Well I hit the shops today and got quite a few Christmas pressies marked off my list, so Yeyyyy for Black Friday!  The shops were busy but not hectic and I got some bargains along the way :)

I also had some happy mail today, these lovely MFT stamps that I won recently from Simon Says Stamp :)  My flowers are one of the first stamps I ever bought, I think they were from Cornish Heritage Farm, and they still get inky quite often.  Coloured with watercolour pencils, sparkle added to the petals and popped up on dimensionals.
