Kith & Kin Blog Hop with Kit & Clowder!

Welcome to our super exciting Blog hop which is being headed up by the Wonderful Alyce Keegan of Kit & Clowder. There is a live colour along starting now with Alyce over on her Kit and Clowder site which you can follow along with or at a later time as the video will be available for 2 weeks.

So if you have come across my blog by chance and want to start at the beginning, head over to Alyce's blog to start! 

For my project I used the digi Jill the Mermaid which was designed specially for me by the fab Kyra Patterson of Kith & Kin. She has done an amazing stamp for all of her DT. Now for anyone who nows me, I'm obsessed with Mermaids, pink, turquoise and glitter so my project has all those things! lol I made a framed picture to hang on the wall in my craft room! 




I coloured my digi using copics in my fave colours! Pink, turquoise and my matching blonde hair! Its hard to see from the picture but I have added lots of crystal glitter to the scales on her body and glossy accents to the bubbles also. When I was on my hols last year I went to Shell Island in wales and picked up lots and lots of gorgeous shells to add to my stash! So added these to the paper blooms I used, and I also added a bright pink starfish that I got in a pack of large shells that I bought at a seaside gift shop! Hope you like her as much as I do! 

Now, for the rest of the hop list!

Scribble & Scrap Challenge #15 Anything goes

Time for another new Challenge over at Scribble and Scrap Challenge Blog which as always is super easy to enteras it is Anything Goes!

Here is my DT card using Magnolia Edwin and the Monochrome Set 1 papers from the S&S shop.


I coloured Edwin using copics. I didnt write them down at the time *slaps wrist, but I'm pretty sure it was the N's that I used for the greys. The skin as always is E000, E00, E11. I added a mustache onto Edwin using an Indigo Blue male stamp set that I had. The 'Bingo' background is a large wood mounted rubber stamp that I picked up at a craft fair in a bargain box! As is the Birthday sentiment stamp. I used 2 papers from the monochrome set 1 for the backing as well as some plain bazzill cardstock. All the edges of all the papers and stamped images have been distressed using Pumice Stone Distress Ink and sponge applicator and then filed along with an emery board to 'roughen' it up a bit!

Hope you like my card and would love it if you get chance to stop by the other DT girls blogs and leave them a little love!

Scribble and Scrap Challene #14

Time for another new Anything Goes Challenge over at Scribble and Scrap!

I have used a Tilda stamp and the papers and backing are all from the Mint Chocolate Set 1 from the Scribble and Scrap shop! Hope you like her!



I coloured Tilda using copics E000, E00, E11, E13, E15, E18, R11, R21, R22, BG13, BG23, BG32, E71, E74, E77, C1.

The paper's all came from THIS set, even the plain background papers. The only none S&S card I used was the plain card that is part of the punched flowers. The punch used for the flowers is the EK Success Reatro flower large punch and I curled the petals slightly with my pokey tool and then added large sparkling rhinestones to the centres. The fence is cut from a La La Land die and the swirls are bits snipped off a die cut cut that was cut using the large Cheery Lynn flourish die. Finally added some pearls to the corners and a little piece of self adhesive ribbon that was knocking around in my stash in the bottom right hand corner. The sentiment is a digi one I have had for ages and it was cut using MFT fish tail dies.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you like my card. Would love it of you get chance to stop by the other Scribble and Scrap DT blogs for lots mroe fabbarooney inspiration.
