And after that title I now have the song going through my head LOL!!

This is an image from out sponsor Wink Wink Ink over at Outlawz Sketch this month.  Its called Love Cats.

I've coloured it with Copics and have actually got a list for you of the colours (yes don't faint!)

A little old age tenderness

It's that time of year again where I create something special for my hubby.  This year I've gone with another of his favourites - skeletons!!

There are two different versions of the image.  The one with just the skeletons I've sketched a heart.  All of the image was coloured with Copics.  I've added a little black polychromos pencil to add a little extra depth to the shading.

Finished off with layers of red and black card, I've added a Forever sentiment from Scrapiniec coloured with black Copic.

Happy Valentines hubby!!

Here's a little more inspiration from Wink Wink Ink, our sponsor at Outlawz Sketch for February.  I've used Rainy Day Friends for my inspiration this time.

The image has been coloured with Copics and then cut with a Spellbinders die.

Here's out sketch for this week.


I've used black card and design papers from 13 Arts and Studio Light this time.

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and has also been coloured with Copics.

Perfect Pointe

We've a fantastic theme over at Fussy and Fancy Fridays this fortnight - Flowers, Lace and Pearls, some of my favourite embellishments :)


I coloured her up with Copics just after Christmas then didn't know what to do with her so left her for a while.  I thought she'd be perfect for this challenge inspiration, the design kind of evolved as I went along.

I've sprinkled some embossing enamel around the image using white and gold.  There are a couple of tiny brass corners, you can just see one at the bottom right of the image above, these I got from Noor Design.  The edges of the image were distressed with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz.

My design papers are from Maja Design, Joy Craft and Studio Light.  All these and the image have been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.  I've also sprkingles some embossing enamel and glitter onto the top layer of design papers.

Here's a close up of the flower section.  You can find the lace heart, the flat back pearl string and pins at The Ribbon Girl.  You can also find some of my flowers there.  The rest at Wild Orchid Crafts.

Layering up like a mad thing as you can see with pinks, aquas and creams, my final touch was to add a wood chip "love" heart from Scrapiniec.  

Hope we see you over at the challenge this time

Where Dragons Sleep

So where do tiny dragons sleep, in beautiful flowers I'd like to believe.  This is how I drew MorpheusYou can find this little guy in my shop here.  I've created this card for the inspiration over at Passionate Paper Creations and Friends this week where I've got three games running to win my images :) . If you don't already know I'm sponsoring them - but there's not a lot of time left if you want to grab the discount code or enter the games!

Coloured with Copics, a white polychromos pencil, and white and gold gel pens, I've textured the background using champagne (Faye knows what I mean - she taught me how to do it!)

I've kept the design very simple to showcase the image for you.  Morpheus has been framed with some black card and design paper from Maja Design.

A simple sentiment complimenting the image from Scrapineic - Always Follow Your Dreams.

Hope you like my inspiration for today.  Thanks for taking a look.

What To Wear


The image has been coloured in pastel pink and aqua using Copics.  I've tried my best to get a reflection image in the mirror for you.  Not brilliant but you kinda get the idea :)

My design papers are from Lemoncraft, Joy Craft and Lili of the Valley.  All the design papers and the image have been distressed.

I've doodles a border round the image.  Used a Scrapiniec sentiment coloured with Copic and added LOTS of DecoArt glitter to it for some girly sparkle.  Finally there are some pearl gems added to the edges of some of the design papers.

You can see more inspiration by the Dressy Girls for todays new release in the Facebook Group and on the blog

Hi Foxy

Our sponsors at Outlawz Sketch for February are Wink Wink Ink, the image I've used today is Foxy

It's been coloured with Copics, then fussy cut to put onto the tag.

Here's out Sketch for today - now you get to see the tag I'm talking about ;)


I've used papers from Maja Design, Lili of the Valley and Studio Light.  Added to the tag are some different fibres in burgundy, two tiny wooden hearts, some brown rose trim and some word stickers from Tim Holtz.

The mushrooms are paper cut with a die from Joy Crafts.  The wispy grass stems are wood chip embellishments I got from Wild Orchid Crafts a couple of years ago.

Hope you like my inspiration for today and we see you at the challenge
