Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Bubble Bear

Lauren set this weeks sketchie challenge over on the CMLI group on Craftbubble. The theme was 'just because' and there was a fabulous sketch made up of circles. I knew I had the perfect image for the job!!

Gorgeous spotty paper by Pink Petticoat
Kraft card from Stampin Up!
Pearls from stash

Gems from stash
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Ribbon recycled from t-shirt

Sentiment by Pink Petticoat
Gems from stash

Image is Lenny 1 by Stampfairy
Coloured with Promarkers
Nestabilities for circles and sentiment

I must acknowledge Coops for her inspiration and SUBLIME colouring..I hope one day to be half as good as her!!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Creative Craft Challenges - Animal Antics
Passion for Promarkers - Cut it Out (use die cuts)
Cutie Pie Challenge - Circles
PaperPlay Challenges - Animal Antics

Hope you liked my Bubbly Bear card...I'm sure I will be using that image again soon!!

Super card Debs.
You asked last week what I had used round my image on one of my cards- nothing special just a PM. For some reason it looked better in that photo than it normally does!

Karina said...

Such a sweet image, and I love what you did with it. Perfect choice of papers and so beautifully embellished. The embossing looks great! Gorgeous creation, Debs!
Hugs, Karina
