My Lovely Friends,

It's Thursday!

Hi guys, this is on scheduled post just in case Kay has gone into labour, as of yet there is no sign and boy is she fed up!!! lol
anyway the cards I'm posting today are of course for Colour Create and Paper play,

Colour create has a lovely colour challenge for you by our lovely Kerry and it's
Red, Kraft and white, the optional extra is create your own background paper,

now as you know this is something I don't do a lot of, but this time I have stamped in moonlight white brilliance ink the snowflakes, heat embossed with clear embossing powder  over the top, added Barn door Distress ink with cut and dry foam, then rubbed over it with a dry baby wipe which then reveals the white embossed snowflakes,

I've attached this to craft coloured card stock and machine sewn the edges,
the main image is of course by Magnolia and is coloured with copics,
the sentiment is stamped again on the craft card and I made the die cut leaves out of it too,
the poinsettias are a Magnolia stamp which I did with the same DI, then cut two out and layered them,

Skin ~ E000  ~ 00 ~ 01 ~ 11 ~ R20
Hair ~ E51 ~ 31 ~ 33
Reds ~ R05 ~ 17 ~ 27 ~ 37
Browns ~  E40 ~ 41 ~ 42 ~ 43 

Paper Playtime ~ Anything goes
Stampavie and more ~ Christmas in summer

Back to school,
we were kindly sponsored by Kenny K digi's and I've chosen cool Kid
My digi is coloured with copics  and I've cut him out then slightly shaped him with a shaping tool, he is then put on the card with Pin flair gel to give depth,
I've used my favourite Sissix clock die again so useful this and added Tim Holtz spinners as the clock hands again too, a computer generated sentiment finishes it off,

Skin E000 ~  E000 ~ E11 ~ E01 ~ R20
Hair ~ E31 ~ 33 ~ 35 ~ 51
Red ~ R17 ~ 27 ~ 59
Orange ~ R02 ~ YR04 ~ 07 ~ 16
Blues ~ B0000 ~ 00 ~ 01 ~ 23 ~ 32
Greens ~ YG 03 ~ YG 63 ~ G21 ~  G94
Grey ~ C0 ~ C1 ~ C5 ~

papers are Basic Grey Olivia paper,

Kenny K ~ layers
2 Sisters challenge ~ Back to school
Lollipop Crafts ~ Make it masculine
