Scatty Jan I adored my image this week, so very lovely to colour up. My digi stamp is called Heart of Spring from our lovely sponsor and can be found in the shop here - I used the second pallet for colour inspiration. This so had to be girly and it was lovely using lots of lace and gems. I coloured her up and popped a frame around her. Painting up the birdcage and corner to match and finished off with a little feather.

Cara My image this week is called Embrace the Ocean stunning and with it being an undersea image I chose the first colour pallet and just had to give her green skin! I decided to colour the background too and used my blender to soften it and give the impression of bubbles. I had great fun!

Greens: 8120,8115,8110, Blender
Greys: 9101, 9103

Claire C I've chosen the second colour palette for inspiration for my card this week. I've used this gorgeous image from our sponsor, she's called Sunshine and you can find her here


I love to see the gorgeous backgrounds that people have created with their markers but I don't have a lot of patience so I've created a very quick background with my markers. Just scribble some shades of blue on a glass cutting mat, spritz with Mix'It Fluid and swoosh some glossy card stock through it for a lovely 'sky'. Then I roughly sketched in some grass and a few dots of pink/blue/lilac and lemon to create the effect of flowers! Easy peasy :-)
