Fairy Freya

Another month, another Art by Mi Ran progressive challenge. Pop over to Art by Mi Ran’s Facebook group for details on how to join in the challenge and how to obtain the image. The adorable image will also be available in Art by Mi Ran’s shop in May. Her name is Fairy Freya.

Some of the papers are by Lili of the Valley. They’ve all been painted around the edges. Butterflies are from Noor Design, the flowers and deep red ribbon are by Wild Orchid Crafts and the lace is from Live and Love Crafts. The card base shape is made with dies by Go Kreate.

Flowerbed Teddy

I am still playing catch up with last year’s cards. My mojo is still missing and I haven’t felt like colouring or creating at all this year. I really hope that it will return soon!

As I haven’t coloured anything this year, I thought it was highly appropriate that I posted up one of the cards I made last year using a pre-coloured image. The image is by Lili of the Valley. I’ve used Papermania papers, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, some bits from Craftwork cards. A button and some liquid pearls.

Spring swing

Time for a new Mi Ran anything goes challenge in the facebook group. This month we have the optional theme of: Things with Wings! I chose the gorgeous Haylee for this and coloured her in with copics. As we’ve had a crap summer and autumn is around the corner, I deliberately chose a spring theme!

The papers I have used are by Lili of the Valley and the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. I used a couple of Martha Stewart punchers to make the butterflies. As the theme is things with wings I used it as an excellent excuse to add then! The border is also made using a Martha Stewart puncher and the leaves with a Noor Designs die.

It is spring!

Blog posts seem to be few and far between these days. I am still crafting regularly, though, I am just not posting what I make on here. Today I have decided I really need to add an update though, so here is one of my most recent cards.

I have coloured an Art by Mi Ran image using copics. The background papers are all from various Lili of the Valley paper pads and the sentiment is a stamp from there too. All the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves are made with a Noor Design die.

Flowers, flowers, flowers

Last weekend I went to Iceland and it was fantastic. It was a surprise hen do / bachelorette party for a friend of mine and she had no idea she was even going! No idea whatsoever. What a fun surprise! We went whale spotting (with a bonus of dolphins), rafting and after a night out we had some relaxing hours in the Blue Lagoon before heading back home. A busy, but highly enjoyable weekend!

Anyway, time for another card. I will spend a couple of hours tomorrow as well making more cards. This one is made with a pre-coloured image by Lili of the Valley. I have used ribbon from a local shop, a blank card template by Craftwork Cards, papers by Pion Design, a couple of Martha Stewart punchers, pearls by The Hobby House and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
