Love Life

Drawn for a for a young girl / teenager and coloured in pink, here's Lolly Liz.  you can find her in my Etsy shop and get her with 10'5 off by quoting code SKIANDREA10


I have a DT call for my Facebook group in the photo folders and there's one for my new challenge blog - SheepSki Designs challenges, the closing date is 28 February.

Anyway enough rambling onto my card and what I've done

Liz has been coloured with ProMarkers, Copics and polychromos pencils.  I've then cut her, some back card stock and design papers with some Spellbinders die cuts, to created a nest of layered circles.

The design papers I've used are all from Lemoncraft.

The sentiment is a wood chip one from Scrapiniec that has been coloured with black Copic.

My final embellishment, a few pink sequins to add some bling and complete the pink look :D

Shabby roses in monochrome

I coloured this image Wild Roses in monochrome as an inspiration piece.  I only used one black polychromos pencil to create it with.  Finally I've had chance to make it into a card!


You can enter an of your card created with my images into my Facebook challenges.  I have a DT call in this group at the moment and I've also a DT call for my new challenge blog.  Both of these close on 28 February.
I debated for a while whether to add a splash of colour.  BUT as you can see below I kept with the monochrome theme.  It's kind of ended up looking like a black and while photo of a coloured image :D but I can assure you its not!

I've distressed the image and the black card stock behind it to give it a shabby feel.

My only embellishment three silver dragonfly charms to keep with the monochrome theme.

Hope you like the card I ended up making :D

Sandra's Cupid

Here's another of Sandra's creations for us for Outlawz Sketch.  This one is called Cupid Angel, you can find him in Sandra's shop Baby Cakes Digis and Designs

I've coloured him with ProMakers, then mounted him onto some red card stock.

Here's our sketch for this week


I've flipped mine on its side and left off the part for the sentiment.

Papers used are from UHK Gallery and Santoro.  I've also used some black card stock.


The love sentiment is wooden, I found these in Hobbycraft in the wedding section.  I'v coloured this one with ProMarker.

My only other embellishment are a couple of black gems.

Hope you like my inspirations for this week and you'll join us at the challenge

Perfect together

Yay the day is here when I can share what I've created for my hubby's Valentines card :D

He loves whiskey, partly my fault, when we first started dating he used to drink Jack Daniels and Coke all the time.  So I had this idea why not draw it, so I've created my own digi with it on!



Behind the image I've drawn a heart with a sentiment Perfect Together created at the time of printing.

I've used ProMarkers and polychromos pencils to colour the image.

Mounted onto some red card stock to create a border I've then doodled a border onto the image with biros.

Happy Valentines Day hubby!

Sleep Tight Little One

This is the latest image I used for my guessing game in my SheepSki Designs Facebook Group to win the image.  It's called Sleep Tight and features Fuzzy :D

You can find Sleep Tight in my Etsy Shop and get it with 10% off by quoting code SKIANDREA10.
I've used Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils to colour the image.  

I wanted to keep the image as the main focus so have made a CAS card.


The sentiment was done at the time of printing.  It's mounted onto some Kraft card and I've used a biro to edge the image with.

Hope you like my inspiration with my new image

Lolly Liz


Check out the blog to see who else has entered.

Sam gave us a few clues to go on Vampires, Vacuum Cleaners, Lottery Machine, Hummingbird, Lollipop etc. etc.

Well the it was the lollipop that gave me inspiration for this one.





Oh and I've coloured her so you can get an idea of what she'll look like for your cards etc....
