Ahoy Matey inspiration post

I'm late again (I belong in Alice in Wonderland!)
This should have been posted a few days ago.. sorry..

I used Ahoy Matey to decorate a folded book for my father in law on fathers day. (He loved it)

I am new to book folding and this was the first I'd made and actually given as a gift. The digi went with it perfectly.

I coloured her using Promarkers
Hair - walnut, coca, sandstone, satin
skin - apricot, oatmeal, blush
dress/hat/shoes/belt - cool aqua, duck egg, sky blue, true blue

I used some co-ordinating papers from  my stash to mat and layer her.
Printed my own sentiment.
Twisted a pipe cleaner with blue twine to look like rope to  decorate the spine of the book.
and wrapped red and white wool around a curtain ring to look like a life bouy.

Please pop over to Karleigh Sue and join in the latest challenge.
We love to see your projects.

Kind Regards

Just a walk in the park

by Cheri

I love this sweet image. All set to go with her books on the way to the park to sit in the shade and maybe study.. maybe not.
I printed her onto neenah cardstock and coloured her with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils then imported the coloured image into Craft Artist 2 where I removed the white surrounding the image and added the countryside background.

Waves of Grief

Hey there Karleigh Sue fans!  Today I am popping in to share a bit of mid-week inspiration with you.  For today's card I am using an image that is so lovely, and has been on my lost for some time.  She is called 'Waves of Grief', and you can find her here in the Karleigh Sue Etsy Shop.  I kept my card fairly simple, as I believe the image say so much on it's own.  I would love to know what you think.

You can find more details - including Copic colors - on my blog This Creative Day.  I love visitors:)

Lets Go Team

Heres an awesome image called Lets Go Team by Karleigh Sue Designs, and how cool for footy season! Seeing that I live in Cairns Ive gone for colours that are used in the Cowboys NRL team.
To make this card I have started with a kraft card blank and then matted it with a grass paper and then football sayings paper from Kaiser craft. My banners that have been stapled to the top have also come from Kaiser Craft. I coloured our team gal with copic markers and then cut her out and popped her out. To finish I stamped a party sentiment and cut it out and popped it up too.
The colours that I used are :

Love Notes

Isn't she the sweetest little Postlady! I do love these images..so crisp and clear and so very easy to colour. This time I pictured her in a little English Market Town early in the morning when it is just starting to warm up with the bunting fluttering and the birds singing with the town looking so clean after last nights rain. I printed her onto neenah and coloured her with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils. Then I used Craft Artist 2 to remove the white and to create the Town background. I do hope you will join in with the challenges here http://karleighsuechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/

I wish you the best of luck with your entries. Sue xx

Well, as our summer seemed to have been last week.
 And today has just started to chuck it down with rain..
 what better time to share a cheery male birthday card

I coloured it with the following promarkers - turquoise, powder blue, arctic blue, sky blue, raw sienna, terracotta, chestnut.

I used some papers and matching sentiment that were free with a magazine.
And cut 6 circles with a punch and turned them into candy.

Please pop of to Karleigh Sue challenge blog and share with us your projects.

Happy 4th of July-American Beach Babe

 It's a Super Star Spangled Saturday-

What's on your agenda today? If, of course, you are living in the USA...I am sure you are celebrating in a super fun way!!  My bestie, of 30 years, is visiting this weekend.  I am so excited- we plan on eating, drinking and relaxing...throw in a few movies and we are set!  So for this special day- I wanted to share American Beach Babe with you.

I always use Copics to color with- I have to start writing down the colors I use.  And the pattern paper is from an old Bo-Bunny line.  I hope you have a little time this weekend to buy a few digi's from the Karleigh Sue ETSY store and enter your project over at the Karleigh Sue Challenge BLOG.
