DT Inspiration Slinky Tart - 31 July 2015

Well hello there fellow bloggers and happy Friday to everyone xx
As part of my DT contribution for the Slinky Tart Team, I get to showcase the fun and fluffy image called "Snowman CPR".  Whilst I coloured her in the lovely frozen blue and aqua colours, I have also seen her coloured in Xmas colours and she looks just as amazing.  Perfect image for that wintery, snowy Christmas.
But I wanted to have her in a gorgeous wintery, snow-flaked, icy wonderland with her cutesy snowman.
And then trying to find the right sentiment become somewhat tricky.  Then all of a sudden this just popped into my head.  Does anyone else struggle with finding the right words, I certainly do?
This image is coloured with Copic markers.
My card is about as fancy as I get.  My craft stash is super limited.  I have lots of paper, ribbon, washi tape and some embelishments, but I really have no clue even how to use some to the amazing products that you can buy.  When some of the other design team girls are chatting about certain products, it just goes way over my head lol.  My passion is colouring, and making a card for me is kept quite simple.

The Slinky Tart DT are having a little break now but we'll be back real soon with some more new Slinky inspiration.  Come over to the facebook page where there is lots of activity and smexy pin-up art happening.
Have a great weekend everyone xxx

Just getting my Smexy Pin-up Art on ......

Last week I coloured three new shop previews for the Slinky Tart store.
The first image is "Tangie" who (I think) may have been one of Tamara's first smexy pin-up images.  She is a doll (and she is workin' it lol).
The next image is called "A Classic Tail".  A fabulous image for those mermaid loving crafters and colourists out there.  I did have fun colouring her (especially her lower back and bottom).  I have had some requests for her colour combos so I endeavour to upload these real soon, I promise.
And the third image is a brand new one called "Strike ...... you're out!".  She is definitely working toward a home run this little gem.

DT Inspiration Slinky Tart - 17 July 2015

This week I am showcasing my very CAS card featuring the gorgeous digital image from Slinky Tart called "Better than Tarzan".
I fussy-cut the image I had previously sent Tamara (the amazing Artist) as a colour preview for her store.  I just love her flowing hair and those beautiful big eyes.
My card is ultra simple today, just some coloured card stock, some flowers and butterflies and a glitter washi tape.  I didn't think she needed much given the size of the image and her scene in the jungle. 
This image is available for immediate purchase and download from the Slinky Tart store (the link is on the right hand side of my blog).

Saturated Canary Colouring Competition

This week I am entering a Colouring Competition over at the Saturated Canary Blog.
The artist, Krista Smith, has released three new (double) images called "Fashion Decades".

Here is a link to the Saturated Canary Store if you would love to view or purchase the Fashion Decade images -

And here is the link if you would love to also enter the competition
I have chosen to showcase my colouring and card using the 40's image.
I adore her hair colouring and little red velvet purse.  I have the perfect friend in mind for this particular card.  Such a lovely image to colour.

Feeling a little bit glamorous ...

Last night I had another colouring session on this little beauty from Slinky Tart.
This image is called "Vainity".  I have coloured her before, and I think she may be my all time favourite at the moment from the Slinky Tart Collection.
Below this image is my first colouring of her looking very glam in Paris.  But this time she is super glam in her red, let's say velvet, gloves, white silk dress and her striking red hair.

Saturated Canary .....

Hello everyone
Today I am showcasing an image from Saturated Canary called "Afterburn".  She is coloured with Copics of course.  I have to say her hair was a massive challenge.  I didn't know quite where to start.  So after using about 5-6 different colours and trying to capture the light and shade, I'm pretty pleased with the end result.  Actually, I had that many colours and markers spread out, I lost track of my colours to share.  I also used a little technique with the colourless blender and an E43 pen to make her shorts look like a dirty denim with some texture.
Hope you like her :)

DT Inspiration Slinky Tart - 3 July 2015

Hi everyone, here is my Design Team inspiration for this week.  Soooo pretty in pink.

This image is one of my all time favourites.  She is called "Illeana".  She is inspired by Belle from Beauty and the Beast and how slinky is she.

I coloured this image some time ago but it was time she was made into a gorgeous card, but now I don't think I can part with her.

I broke out my Sizzix and embossing folders for this card and tried out a new Die.  But don't hate me for not knowing the names as I threw out the packaging.  I scrambled through my stash of beautiful floral and pink papers and just added a white washi tape from Close to My Heart, added a lace flower and some sparkly pink ones, a paper doily and a tag and taaaa daaaaaaa lol.  I am just so technical in my crafty comments lol.

If you would love this image too, please refer to the right side bar of this blog for a link to the Slinky Tart and Spunky Tart Stores.  Many more amazing images to choose from, I best you don't stop at just one.  Happy shopping :)

Hope you like her as much as I do.

Crafty hugs until next time

Somewhere over the Rainbow - Australia might get on board :)

Here's my Design Team inspiration for "Slinky Tart" on the fabulous new image "Equality". There is an essence to us - that is who we naturally are, and it has nothing to do with our gender. Love is love.

The first picture gives you a better preview of the actual image you can purchase from the Slinky Tart store.  The bottom pic has been showcased with a rainbow image just to set the scene.

In a democracy social policy should be decided by the people, not by the judiciary, as has happened in the United States this week.  C'mon Australia, catch up.  In a land of so-called freedom, I don't understand the objection to same sex marriage.
