Brown Sugar # 90, 18 April - Use Burlap

Our Sponsor this week is Dr Digi
Go check out the wonderful images in the store
http://www.doctor-digi.com/

I chose "Green Fingers and Thumbs" for my Burlap project.  She looked like she would love to wear bright  coloured clothes, I have used pinks and aquas from Copic to colour the image.  I made a burlap flower, added a fairy sticker and some journal words.  This is one side of a Friendship page, the theme was fairies.


Red Robin

This lovely image comes from Digistamps 4 Joy and is the monthly image for April, printed and coloured twice with Copic Pens, I have used designer Papers for the card, mounted the bird and branch with 3d stickers, hopefully in some sort of alignment with the branches on the designer paper, so little bird becomes part of the design.  Inside the card, is the same designer paper only a more greener version.  I have added a small gold sticker sentiment.

Robin Redbreast - Children's Song For Christmas
When Christmas time is coming near,
And snow clouds fill the air,
There’s a tap, tap, tap on my window pane,
And Robin Redbreast is here again!
*
He stands there on my window sill,
Just singing on and on,
Then he’ll tap, tap. tap for me to see,
Robin Redbreast has come to me,
With his happy Christmas song!

Geraniums

The image on this card is one that I won from Beccky's Place

I have used KaiserCraft pens to colour the image, which I printed twice,  I have sculptured and decoupaged two flowers and a leaf.  Using green cardstock I created a trifold card and added pink card stock to one side which has a gold sticker sentiment on it.

Winter is coming

A little plaque for me, myself and I, to remind me that I have to put up with the cold rainy winter days, so that I can enjoy the rest of the year!  I do not like rain or cold weather.

The image is a precoloured version of "Bear Rain" from Scrapbook Eden.  I have printed and mounted on blue cardstock and then onto a heavy white cardstock added magnets so that I can attach it to the fridge.
