Winter Wonderland Meets Spectrum Noirs.

Posted by tracy watkiss at 13:55 5 comments

Have had a proper play today with my new Spectrum Noir pens and have entered this card into the winter wonderland challenge,  they wanted cards with Holly and/or Ivy on them.

I just love this image from Cuddly Buddly : Wee Digis

thought that the holly on the pressies would just pass, for this challenge.

Papers, gems, leaves and ribbon were all vrom my stash.

For the bunny I used
Cool Greys  CG0.5, CG1 and CG3  his ears and cheeks were skin tone 196

all red was 11 and 1

the sledge was
browns 100, 104 and 101

the green no 43
 the parcels yellows were 38,45 and 35
the image was then coloured around with Turquoise 171.

See you soon

PolyChromos and Cuddly Buddly Challenge.

Posted by tracy watkiss at 14:17 4 comments

Oh my word I forgot all about Cuddly Buddly starting their own Challenge blog
 which can be found here, go check out the DT work it is lovely and if you like Digi images, these are some of the best around.Well lucky for me I remembered this week.

This week you had to make a project with a charm on it.

So I thought I would give it a go, my card is below, with a little heart charm.
I used one of their Wee Digi Image - The Florist.

Now normally I am a copic / promarker girl all the way, but I forgot I had bought polychromos ages ago and thought I would break open the box for the first time ever!(Ahem - cough- cough)

Here is a close up

OOOOH ! I really liked the softness of these, this is my first attempt with them - couple of niggles but I have a new addiction LOL!!  (I did copic the face though).

Kept the rest of the card quite simple, sprayed the Kaiser flowers with Gold Glitter Spray from Crafters Companion.
Papers where from my stash.

I must also say a BIG THANKYOU to my buddy Jill Barber for all her help this week, whilst Karen had a well earned break.

Till next time Hugs.

Testing and a promise!!

Posted by tracy watkiss at 21:08 0 comments
Well I have been missing for a few days and I can only apologise, shop was mega busy last week, I am working on Septembers workshops.

Wrexham Arstamps show is coming up soon, and my business partner is having a well earned rest in Scotland.

So I promise to post something pretty tomorrow if it kills me.
Just testing networked blogs too so I can follow some of my facebook pals and hopefully (cheesy grin) they will follow me too.

Just Tracys Challenge

Posted by tracy watkiss at 00:25 1 comments

Second card for today and this time for our very own challenge at

Keeping this post short and sweet as I am busy prepping for Newbury Artstamps and hoping this will be scheduled correctly to appear. (Famous last words!)

SO the challenge this months is

Summer Holidays

For me the Beach Holidays when I was growing up are some of my fondest memories.
so I wanted that to be the theme of my card below,

Please check out the other DT members cards as they are great.

I have used, Digi images from Mo Manning for all of my images, the sentiment is a digi from cuddly buddly
all coloured with copics and chalks.

That was that!

I just cannot believe another month has been and gone!
And another Launch from Crafters Companion that I simply had to have.

Just in time for this months challenge too over at

This months theme is a toughy

well it would have been a toughy if I did not have the new stamps, hee hee.

Please drop by and see the other DT yummy cards.

Here is mine.

I used two of the new stamp sets to create this card

They are Jayne Nesterenkos New Adorables sets
Set 1 : Special Friend and Set 2: By the sea.
Coloured with promarkers and chalks.

Using stash cardstock, twine, eyelets and quick cutz die for the anchor to decorate up.
