Inky Impressions Embellish It

Hi crafty friends,

I hope your week has been wonderful. I have to admit that I have not been crafting as much as I would like lately as it is too cold in my craft room at night and I don't like the cold. It is too easy to snuggle on the couch with a blankie so I have promised myself that I will do some crafting and stop hiding behind the blankie. That's the plan anyway. :)

The theme this week at Inky Impressions is to Embellish your project. Now I love to add pretties to my card but I decided to keep it to a minimum this time to show you that you don't have to use a mass of flowers etc to make your card pretty, you just need to place them strategically to achieve your desired effect.

Here is my card;
You can find both the image and the sentiment in the Inky Impressions shop where you can also find so many more fab images. I would love for you to head over to the store and check it out . I do hope you will join in with us this month with our Embellish it theme. Thanks for dropping by.

Cheers Nicole

Inky Impressions June Release

Hi folks,

Today I am sharing my creation to show off this months New Release images from Inky Impressions. You can find this image and a few more in the New Release section of the store. I hope you like her as much as me, it reminded me of my childhood afternoons watching Happy Days.

Here is my project;
Isn't she just so fun. I went for a CAS card for a change and I am glad I did as I think she looks fab.
Thanks so much for dropping by today.

Inky Impressions Something in the Air

Hi folks,

We have another great challenge for you this week at Inky Impressions. The theme this week 'Something in the Air' is open to so many different interpretations. The first thing that came to my mind was my lovely Echo Park Everyday Eclectic papers. I just love the hot air balloons, so that is my something in the air. I threw in some butterflies as well to add in some other ideas.

Here it is;
Isn't she fun, this is Lili Roller Skating. She reminded me of my daughter who has been rocking the roller skates lately. I hope you like her as much as I do.

Thanks for dropping by today.
Cheers Nicole

Art by Miran DT Call

Hi there,

Today I would like apply for the Art by Miran design team. I fell upon these beautiful images through the Kit and Clowder Facebook page and I am love, love, loving them. They are the best to colour and practise the techniques I am learning in the Kit and Clowder classes. My favourite thing at the moment is coming home from a long Friday at work to find out the new image for each months Progressive Challenge then planning it over the month to get it just right. My entry for the DT call is also my project for last months Progressive Challenge using Rora and Butterfly. I apologise if you have seen this card on Facebook already however I am quite proud of it and thought it fitting for the DT call.

Here it is;
So I guess it's time to share a little bit about me. I am a sporty mum with a crafty side. I love being active during the day and then getting my craft on at night time during 'me time'. I love using pretty images on my cards and flowering them up but I also love to use fun images and change it up with a more Clean and Simple style. I don't like to stick to one style, I like to change it up a bit and I like to try new things. I love colouring with my Copic's and I love playing with different mediums like Gelato's, pencils and water colours although I am still mainly playing with those.

I am currently on one other Design Team (Inky Impressions) and I have experience on others. I work really well with deadlines and I feel that I work well in a team. I would really love to join the Art by Miran Design Team as they are my favourite images at the moment and I love working with them. The projects produced by the current Design Team are so lovely and I would love to be a part of this team.

Thanks so much for dropping by and listening to my waffles, thanks for your consideration.

Cheers Nicole
