POE APPRECIATION DAY BLOG HOP January 19-23, 2018 - DAY 2



Hi Peeps and welcome to DAY 2 of the POE APPRECIATION DAY BLOG HOP as hosted by the wonderful Leigh of LEIGH SNAITH-BRUNTON DESIGNS.

I have made 5 new pieces to show you - one each day, but I will also be including some of my previous POE inspired projects to inspire you along :-D

For today, I have a Journal Page using one of the brand NEW images from LEIGH SNAITH-BRUNTON DESIGNS :  " ODE TO POE " .

The main image is from my Shop - IKEsART. She is called " ANNABEL LEE #2 " from my POE collection.



                         ANNABEL LEE #2               

Firstly I made a background using an old print of a sepulchre and underneath I have typed the poem Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan POE, and splashed with a little blood - of course LoL :-D
Merged into the background also is ODE TO POE by Leigh :-)
I coloured digitally in Photoshop, then printed and cut her out for my page.

I don't usually do a lot of MM cuz it scares me to death hahahaha :-) 



The Raven was using in the same manner and then subjected to a dunk in my ' Melting Pot ' to make an earring........ just one for effect - yes ? !!

Firstly I made a sort of shadow box using  " GOTHIC ARCH " from my Poe collection at IKEsART. The background is a freebie I gave out  a while back which has Ravens.  I coloured POE with Promarkers and then fussy cut him and added him the the background with 3D foamies. The Raven head was also fussy cut and 'feathered' and added to the frame. Then I tarted it up with some white silk leaves and hand made roses.

HI EVERYONE

Hello everyone and HAPPY NEW YEAR.
I have returned from my UK trip and am now getting myself back into gear :-D
I have decided to try not to neglect my little personal Blog so much so here is my first card make for 2018.
I have used the Kangaroo from LITTLE SCRAPS OF HEAVEN. He comes from the "AN OUTBACK CHRISTMAS Set" but I didn't cut out the Chrimbo hat because this card is for a Birthday.




I actually printed it out onto white card and coloured it with Promarkers and then cut the pieces by hand (only because I was too lazy to get out my Curio and sort out different colours of card LoL)



The background is a printed mining map of Oz because the recipient works in the mines.  
I have used my new Alphabet Die Cuts to do the name.  :-D
This card was a commission order.

Thank you for popping in. xxx



Challenges I am entering:

Cute Card Thursday Challenge#512 - Something New     17/1
Seize The Birthday Challenges - AG Birthday    17/1

CHRIMBO TAG

Well Folks, I have printed my flight tickets so am just about set now :-).

 I have popped in with my Tag that I made using my new freebie from AURORA WINGS... " Yorkie In A Stocking ", which I got for spending $5 in their shop.
He was just perfect for some friends who are Yorkie crazy :-D



I coloured him using Promarkers and the background is a scrap of Chrimbo paper left over from last year. The gold card doesn't show up well but looks pretty in real life. I added some KindyGlitz on his hat.

Challenges I am entering:

Aurora Wings Challenge #62 - Anything But A Card
Little Red Wagon Challenge #423 - Christmas Critters

MERRY CHRIMBO

Hi All,
I am popping in with some cards I made and most importantly to wish you all a Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2018.
I am off to the UK in a couple of days to spend Chrimbo with my Daughter and Grandsons, so I think it will be a bit colder than here in sunny Greece. :-( 
Luckily I have a house/Dog/|Cats/Chickens  sitter :-D  :-D

So anyway - here are 4 cards I made using the same stamp set. I heat embossed the stamped images in gold and then cut and arranged them in a different way.
I did some delicate colouring on a couple of them using watercolour pencils.






Sorry the gold and glitz doesn't show up very well, but you all know how hard that is to photograph :-)

Well - I am off now for today - I have a couple of other bits to finish.

MERRY FISH-MAS

Hello Peeps,
I hope you are having a great crafty weekend ?

I snagged a pretty cool FREEBIE fish this afternoon drawn by Teresa on the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Blog and I decided to use it for a masculine Christmas card for a fish loving friend.
After colouring the fish I covered it with textured sticky backed plastic to give him some shine - it doesn't photograph at all well though :-(  He is sitting on a pencil sketched fishy tank.
The background paper and overlay are also freebies from PIXEL SCRAPPER.






Challenges I am entering:

2 Crafty Critters Challenge #8 - Feature A Creature  30/11
Christmas Card Challenges #26 - Anything Christmas  30/11
Craft Rocket Challenges #43 - Christmas is Coming  30/11
