Make it manly

Well it is time to challenge myself again and this time I need to make a card for a man or boy. Luckily there are some incredible artist out there that can make it so much easier :D
For my card I have coloured this super cute digi from Mo's digital pencil (dragon hugs) with spectrum noir illustrator pens, The papers are first editions wild flowers and Crafters companion Just for men brights. It is all on a 6x6 card and the little glossy blobs are the brilliant black tie enamel accents. It was all stuck together using collall glue.

Little people

This month at the Crafty Purple Frog challenge we want you to have some fun and make some thing for children of any age.
I have done two cards this week both using the super cute unicorn from the greeting farm magical day set
I couloured them with spectrum noir pens (see under each picture for the colours used) I also added some sparkle with wink of stella pens to their horns, then put them on foam pads so they stand out from the rest of the card. The cards are C6 size and the dotty papers and buttons are from the pinks goody bag, the neutrals goody bag and the teal goody bag. The green paper is from the bright spark set and the sentiment is from the sweet dixie it's all in the words set. They are all put together with collall glue.

Pink unicorn: PP6, PP5,PP1 mane and tail: FS8, LY1, CT2

Wishing you brighter days!

I promise i will get off of the rain theme for the next make but I couldn't resit colouring this cutie up and putting her on a card :D
And then I saw the gorgeous new Wow! glitters and I just had to team them up with her. So this is really just a 5x7 card and an extra little bit of white card for the frame around her. The borders and the stripe have all been done with the amazing glitters and double sided tape. The glitters I used were Santorini (the blue one) and Celebration (the silver one). For the great little pink blobs I used my other new favorite thing enamel accents. This one is called pink gumball. The rain drop stamps and the sentiment are from Stampin' Up's Weather together set and the main lady is from Kraftin' Kimmie's Look for rainbows set. I coloured her using the following spectrum noir illustrator pens:

It is that time of year when all us crafters get all loved up and get asked to create valentines cards and creations. So this month at Crafty Purple Frog we would love to see what you are making. The theme is love. It can be valentines,wedding or any creation for someone you love. 
So here is what I have made. 
I used a 5x5 scalloped card for the base and the pretty roses paper is First editions black out paper. For a touch of texture I added gorgeous red pearls and the image is  the greeting farm Cutesy Anya, coloured with spectrum noir illustrator pens. I put it all together with collall glue and 3D gell to make her stand out from the rest of the card.
