It's Dr Digi time again!

Hello! It's on of those "Second" fridays again and I am back with a new Dr.Digi project!! Here is Katy the Cat Lady!! And yes, yes... I went to town on the textures and patterns like a loon!

The problem is, well it's not really a problem, that I really really enjoy colouring the Dr. Digi characters and sometimes know a skirt HAS to be in a Nana Mauve Plaid and then.....nothing else will do!
This then also happened with handmade cardy, blue rinse curls, check pattern slippers....etc.

I also had to go full furball on her cats...tho three cats is not really enough for a true cat lady, you will have to imagine all the others inside the card! :) This was the first time I had used my fur colouring method on much smaller cats, and it worked fine as soon as I was "a bit more restrained".... that is not my natural mode!

The font is Troutkings and the backing paper is from the stash. I also added some glossy accents to the cats eyes (but not her specs this time, I thought the pencil effect + posca pen worked ok without) and some stickles on their collars.

Here she is in the shop, so you can see the awesome digi!

Completely loved colouring this one! Can you tell? Not sure who I will be giving it to! I have quite a few crazy cat ladies in my life! lol.

Cat's Chorus?

Am so lucky to work on the LBB DT where it's ok to do a bit of a collab! I know designers collaborating, who'd have thought it? lol! (This post is cross posted on the LBB Blog).

For my DT choice today I have the super Caroling Sophie and.... she has some Knitty Kitty friends!

I loved this image of Sophie but thought she could do with some friends, hard to carol properly when you're snuggled deep in a cosy scarf! :) And we all know what delightful voices cats have when they sing!

I added the caroling cats digistamp to Sophie on the computer and then printed them out onto the topper together. I coloured them with polychromo pencils on kraft.  I added some Glossy Accents and Stickles as well as a few bits of posca pen. The papers are all from the stash. Font is Candy Buzz BTN.

Here is a bit of  a close up of the kitties! 

I haven't released them as a digistamp yet, but you can buy super Caroling Sophie in the LBB Shop Now!

The Crafty Addicts Blog Challenge

Hi everyone! Another sad final post as challenge runner, this will be the last Blog Challenge that Helen and I run on The Crafty Addicts Challenge Blog, but it will continue without us so no worries!

This Challenge (No.43) is sponsored by Polkadoodles! Offering a prize of  £6.75/3 digi stamps voucher to the winner! The Theme is ATG/Non-traditional Christmas Colours. I have used one of the digistamps from the  "Cute Christmas Penguins" duo, coloured him tho as a robin (that's not very traditional lol ) and paired him up with a traditional verse.

I have coloured him with polychromo pencils and used posca pen for highlights and the snowflakes. I have also worked in a bit of the theme (non-traditional colours) by giving him yellow and pink knitwear, not my default red and green lol!
The font I used is Kilsonburg.

I also added some pearls, stickles and glossy accents, to bling it up! :) Red Polkadot card stock is from the stash.

Here he is as a digistamp incase you are interesting in seeing his partner digi, or just what it looked like before it was coloured:

Hope you can take part in our final challenge! See you there! :)

The Crafty Addicts Adhoc Facebook Challenge!

Hi Folks! This will be the last Facebook Adhoc Challenge that Helen and I will be running! At the end of the year both the Facebook and Blog Challenges will be taken over by someone new and we are retiring from running challenges for a bit! So I am very happy that I was also able to sponsor this last facebook challenge with my Knitty Kitty Digis! (If you enter you could win 3 KKD images!)

And here is my DT inspiration project - Holly Poocherson!

Here she is as a digi so you can tell what she looked like before I added texture!

She's actually based on my dog Holly, so I coloured her in as a chocolate labrador, just like my poocherson!

I used polychromo pencils on kraft card. The font is Impact Label Reversed.

Going to have to reserve this one to give to my Mum! I am quite safe saying it here, she never reads my blog! I think she will appreciate the waggy nature of this christmas card!

Dr Digi DT day!

You may soon spot these post are happening in a fortnightly friday pattern, and you would be correct! I am DT'ing every second friday for Dr.Digi's House of Stamps and I am back with my second project! :)

This is Morag the Moo, and she is a delight! :D

I have christmassified her. (It's a word! Honest!) So I could use her for one of my friends Xmas cards! Really love using a digi that you might not think is for Xmas in a Christmas fashion :)

Here is what the digi looks like in the shop: (She's cheap, go buy her! It's awesome hair/fur practice doing something this hairy!!!)
So I set about her with my polychromos, on kraft (unsurprisingly) and then added on some extra snow!

I also added some posca pen and stickles to the snow, to make it extra snowy! :) The hilarious (cough) greeting is in the font: Troutkings.

I am pretty sure my friend is going to love her and if she doesn't I will ask for her back  lol. :)

LBB New Release - Anna's Present

Back once again on New Release Day at Little Blue Button Stamps! Very pleased to be colouring Anna and Spike again, and here is the one of the new digis - Anna's Present.

N.B. Thru til 5th Dec (2017) you could use the code winter40 to get 40% off in the LBB shop!

I thought I'd go non traditional christmas colours and make her into a contemporary christmas card but I think she would great for other types of cards too! I've used polychromo pencils on kraft card.

I decided to add some snowflakes and a greeting in two fonts, Snowflake letters and Snowhouse demo! I also used some posca pen and bling on the snowflakes, mainly just to christmassyfy (official word) the scene! :)

I mounted her onto a blank and backed her with some spotty paper from the stash. Spike had some glossy accents on his nose to make it ultra shiny! :)

If you would like to take a look at the other new releases and the super projects made by the DT, please pop to the LBB blog and have a nosy at the new release post!
