Oh my word the weeks are soaring by.

Yet again Thursday is upon us and another card to show for Just inklined, I nearly missed it as its been that busy in the shop this morning.

But here is my offering of this week, I just fell for these little guys, and new I wanted to keep this card nice and simple, coloured using just the ice greys, a couple of reds and greens from my spectrum Noirs.

The fantastic digi stamp is from just inklined and the digi stamp robins kissing can be purchased here and it's only £1.00 how could you resist.

 

Till next time xx

From one old banger to another!

Good morning it's Thursday again so that can mean only one thing,
It's Just inklined time again!
When I first saw this image it evoked so many memories for me,
when I was a little girl we had a neighbour we called uncle Bert,
both my grandads had died before I was born
so this old gent was like a grandad to me,
and this is the car he had ( or the un pimped version of it lol!)
he loved this car he would wash it every other day,
every spring he would repaint it and varnish the wood. Such lovely memories.
Then when my hubby saw me colouring the image, he said ooh!
An old Morris your old next door neighbour had one of those.
wow that is a cool stamp and would make a great tattoo!!!
The minds of men!!



Well the image is a digiimage available from Just Inklined http://www.justinklined.com/digi-packs/wacky-wheelz-digi-pack-morris 
(sorry having trouble with linky).
I really wanted to keep this card manly, with no frills or ruffles. 
I coloured with spectrum noir pens this time.
Used stamps away washables background papers 
distressed with distress ink pads, 
cut out 3 circles and embossed them in a
circular motion to make fake brads, 
added a die cut tag and hand wrote the sentiment.

Ooh ooh!! More sneaky peaks

Posted by tracy watkiss at 09:30 1 comments

I had so much fun two weeks ago, we were all privileged to get the latest Cd rom and stamps being launched from Mulberry Wood everyday collection by Ian Hallows and Crafters Companion. They are also going to be running a competition, so 3 lucky people could win the cd.

We are allowed to show sneak peaks as of today for you all to see, I have to keep this short and sweet as I am off work at the moment, too long and depressing to explain on here. So without further ado here is card one.

 

 

I have used one of the card companions to make this adorable little easel card x

Another sneaky peak for you tomorrow x

Just inklined WHOO hoo!!

Well I hope this scheduled post works!!!
The other day I was very honoured to be contacted by the girls at Justinklined, informing me that I had been accepted onto their DT, well I was so excited as I love stamping and colouring in, so be involved with a digi/ stamp company is amazing!!!
They have some truly original ideas for images as well as more traditional, you just have to check them out, and they are all so reasonably priced.
The rest of the DT girls are lovely and you can find links to all their blogs down on the left hand side of my blog linky things.
Right on to my very first card.
Well what a decision to make, I firstly had to choose an image. But as its October I could not resist.
I chose to use pumpkins three, (click on the name to purchase it).
 
I went with the treat giving of the trick or treat variety, maybe inviting someone out to a party, or event on Halloween!
 
I loved colouring the image and used my polychroma pencils to get a real glow on those scary pumpkin faces!! Then edged the card with distress ink pads. Matted and layered onto various browns and orange papers, gives a real autumnal feel to the card too!
Well I hope you liked my first outing as a DT member, off to get next weeks card ready.
