Saturated Canary Challenge #3....

Yay Challenge Number 3 kicks off today over on the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog!!  We have been getting soooo many gorgeous entries, keep up the good work!!!! Thank you all so much for joining in!!!
This fortnight it's as easy as 1..2...3!!.....1 image, 2 patterned papers and 3 embellishments!

I have used Penny, from the Ragamuffin Series...coloured with my Promarkers. Flexmarkers and pencils. The papers were given to me in a RAK a while back..aren't they gorgeous...been holding on to them for a while...need to go on the hunt for some more!  I have used 2 flowers and 1 button for my embellishments and I have distressed all the edges and added a tiny bit of stickles to the edges which you can't really make out in the pics.

Head on over to the SC Challenge Blog for all the info and to see the rest of the teams cards!!

Saturated Canary Challenge #2

Wow what a load of wonderful entries we had for our very first challenge...thank you to all you lovely ladies who joined in the fun!
Now I have scheduled this post and I hope Mr Blogger is behaving and has indeed posted it.  As we speak I shall be en route over to the East coast of Scotland to just outside Banchory with all the troops to visit my little sis and her partner for a few days!
But anyway enough waffling from me.... lets get on with  Saturated Canarys second challenge !  Which this fortnight is to use stitching real or faux!
I have used Violet for my card....coloured with my promarkers and pencils...the stitching I have done by hand as I don't have a sewing machine....I normally just use a pen and doodle some stitching but for some crazy reason I thought I would hand stitch!
Head on over to the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog for all the details!

Saturated Canary "Hand Me Downs"

I found this great tutorial here on shading behind the wanted to give it a go...think I have maybe been a bit heavy handed with the blue but for a first go I am pretty pleased with the result.
This is another gorgeous Saturated Canary Digi stamp "Hand Me Downs"
She has been coloured with my promarkers again and a pencil for some shading......can you make out the tiny pearls? I ordered some of ebay in various sizes 99p each and there are loads in each bag!.....the tiny ones are 1mm I could barely see them!

I will be disappearing for a few days...going over to the east coast to Banchory to visit my wee sis...soooo looking forward to getting away for a couple of days!

TiddlyInks Wedding Card...

Here is the wedding card I made for our next door neighbours who got married at the weekend there.
I have used this lovely Tiddlyinks image and coloured just faintly with a pencil.  The paper is from Raspberry Road and embellies are all from my stash.

And here is another one...

Another beauty which will be available tomorrow from the Saturated Canary Etsy Store!  Not sure if I am entirely happy with how this has turned out...I had run out of my thick embossing powder so used this sparkly stuff....she looks a bit orangey in this photo but she is not in real life!
The gorgeous paper is a digi paper from Raspberry Road Designs

Wanna see a brand new digi?.......

This is one of the new digi stamps Krista will be releasing on Friday...ain't she fab!!  Coloured again with my trusty Promarkers and I used a black pencil for some extra shading......the paper is from a freebie pad I got with a magazine ages ago....I have also added a little bit of doodling and some buttons and flower from my stash.....kept it pretty plain and simple as I wanted her to stand out.   Hope you like and make sure you head over to the Saturated Canary Etsy Store on Friday to check out the new releases...there are more gorgeous ones...hopefully will be back later with another!!

You also still have time to enter our first challenge over at the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog and be in with a chance of win two of Krista's fab Digis!!

WOYWW #122

Bit tidier than last week!  I am sorry I didn't manage round you all last week...promise to do better this week!! Only 3 days of work left and then we are off for two weeks!! 
The card on my desk today is just about finished and is a sneak peek of one of Krista's new Saturated Canary images which will be released on Friday!! There is still a week left to join in with us at the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog!!
The white basket holds my limited supply of nesties and dies...think Santa might rectify that!  The mug in the corner is for water when I get the urge to paint with my inks!
Come on over to Julia's to join in the fun!

Here's a card order I got finished the other day......thanks for stopping by for a look!!xx
