Winston Gardening

It is time for a new Digi-choosday Challenge over at Polkadoodles Challenge Blog.

The DTs brief for this week was use an image with boots. As a little girl I always wanted red wellies so who better to colour up than Winston Bear

Special Friend

With the festive season most of my energy had been thrown into making Christmas Cards so I feel a lot of my stash was a little unloved. 
I stamped and coloured this fun and cheerful scene while I was watching the news unfold of the earthquakes in Croatia and our rapidly escalating virus numbers. I decided at that moment that this card had to be full of vibrant colours as there is enough grief and anxiety in the world at the moment

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to the amazing community that has encouraged and embrassed me in my crafting journey

The Greeting Farm Warm Wishes Colouring Background

I wanted to try to create a scene showing the couple doing their christmas shopping pottering around town. We normally go to the Christmas Market and then potter around York which is our local city but that is of course reserved for next year. 

I imagine this couple pottering around London.

I have had to upload the video in 3 parts due to its size. I have tried to show the colouring in detail and really can not condense it anymore. I just can not figure out how to upload such a huge file from my phone! You can find the 3 videos on my  YouTube channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Spectrum Noir Colouring blends

I have been asked on a few occasions about the blends I use for my colouring. Most of the tutorials that are out there focus on Copics so learning to use Spectrum Noir markers has been a real journey of trial and error. 

I have therefore put together a few videos of my colouring and blends.

Under each link are the colours I have used so do not feel that you need to watch the whole video as the colours are there for you to trial and experiment with.

Above all else remember there is no right or wrong and just have fun!!!

Autumn Thank You

I love these autumn wreaths by Clearly Besotted. I feel that they work so well with the Kraft card

Versamark Embossing Ink
Wow Embossing Powder in Ebony 
Hessian Ribbon

Tiny wooden buttons

Card Making Tutorial
I begun by stamping and colouring the wreath, I then ruddy cut this out, cutting off the intricate parts.

A piece of A5 Kraft card was scored, burnish and folded down the middle.

Onto this I heat embossed the wreath.

The image was then glued over the top. On the left hand side of the wreath are a few small berries that come out of the wreath. I filled these in using Nuvo Drops.

The critter was placed onto the pumpkin using foam squares

A strip of burgundy card was cut and a piece of hessian ribbon glued onto it. On another piece of the burgundy the sentiment was heat embossed. This was trimmed and the corners were rounded before been adhered onto the ribbon

The last 2 critters were glued either side and this was glued onto the bottom of the card 

Before the card was finished with the buttons and clear drops
