The Sketchy Challenges # 59 Annette's Sketch with Kenny K !!

Hi Crafty Bloggers
It's time for a super new fun sketch at
 designed by the fabulous Annette and there is a super sponser Kenny K .
There are lots of fun stamps to choose from at Kenny K .
I have chosen this super new release called Happy Holidays.
 Thought these kind of images would be better suited with copics but I liked how she turned out with the distress ink markers...such a fun image to colour.
 ...The secret is to print them from a laser printer so that the ink does not bleed had fun playing with something completely different .
I have sewn the panels.... finally fixed my mums old sewing machine by downloading instructions lol . The papers Are from Maja design and have been frantaged to death with shabby white embossing powder !!.. for lots of chic sparkle !!
.The baubles are Marrianne dies that I have had for a few years,
 and the panels underneath the stars are a decorative oval from spellbinders die just cut down to fit the sketch.  For the panel in the middle I cut a slit and distressed with scissors and put some different design paper underneath and added  this cute bell charm . The ribbon and pearl string as with all of the above apart from the dies are from Live & Love Crafts.
The pearl button is from The Hobby House.
I hope you will join us in all the fun and see all the details and gorgeous designs from our fantastic design team at The Sketchy Challenges

Anyone for Tea and maybe a wee scone lol

Hi Crafty Bloggers
I have been having fun playing with Afternoon Tea Tilda from the London collection of stamps . I do love tea and a  fresh scone with jam and cream yummy !!! .....I enjoyed colouring her with distress ink markers and pads I have created the background by penning around her in small stages and then adding water to spread the colour out . I then frantaged around her with shabby white embossing powder and then went over the top with a distress tool using chipped sapphire ink. I doodled the flowers underneath the masked bench and added the dots with an inkessentials white gel pen .

The beautiful papers clock and tag were cut from Maja designs basic Autumn and Winter paper pad. I have sewn all the panels including around the sticker letters from Kaisercraft and added lace beaded trim and pearl string. The white flower, leaf and corner are by prima all from Live & Love Crafts. The lovely pearls are from the Hobby House and lastly the cute charms are from Marrianne designs bought at Sirstampalot as with the stamps.
I had so much making this card,,,I hope you are having fun crafting away ...

Hi Crafty Bloggers

I have used Pion Wintertime in Swedish Lapland designer papers for the layers and matted them onto Papermill black card finishing all the edges with snowtex and sprinkles of dry stickles stardust glitter.
The super cute stamp is from Lili Of The Valley and is called fairy lights. I used versafine ink on Langton hot press aquarelle paper and coloured using a combination of distress ink pads & markers and finished with an inkessentials white gel pen.

All the gorgeous embellishments are from Live & Love Crafts . The cones and bark star are painted with gesso and some more glitter added before it dried. I have used some lovely white trim behind the panels and finished with this pretty ribbon bow and bells.
