Beautiful Scenery

I thought some of you may appreciate these ones, done in a totally different medium for me at the moment but totally and equally enjoyable, I often use different mediums together when I’m colouring and there is no fast rule to what you use, whether you like markers, pencil, distress watercolour of pastels but you can be sure that if you enjoy the colouring you’ll end up with something you like.

I used the AquaMarkers  from Letraset for both of the cards below.

I love how quickly this one coloured up, the image is Bridge Scene from Just Inklined 

Bridge Scene

Next Up is Man at Work again it’s from Just Inklined

Baby Cakes–Saturated Canary

I managed to squeeze in a card today, it’s been such a scorching day, Jack came with his mam and we spent most of the afternoon in the garden playing in the sandpit and then Jack watering the flowers, he just loves being in the fresh air, later his Dad came and of course my hubby started with the water fights, they never grow up do they?

So onto my card, Baby Cakes by Saturated Canary Digis  she’s a little sweetheart.

Baby Girl SC1

The wording was done with my new Cheery Lynn alphabet dies bought from Dies to Die For and the ribbon from Ribbon Carousel and the gorgeous gems from Mei Flower (love these companies)

That's Better!

The things we go through to try to get a bit of sparkle back.

I had a lot of natural blonde (wink) coming into my hair and thought it was time to enhance the hairdo.


Thats better.


Dinner time! I remember my eldest daughter lining her dollies and teddies in a row to feed them, she was always a Mum even as a toddler. Sometimes fed other times bandaged. Where did the years go.

Kiko with Carrot from Mo’s digital Pencil, all ready to feed her cuddly rabbit.

Coloured with Promarkers and glittered here and there, you can just about see the glitter on her petticoat. I kept her in fresh summery colours. She’s like a little bit of sunshine.
