Tropical Penguins

Now, a rare thing has happened, I had time this weekend to make a card just for the fun of it.  I am up to date with DT work, even a weeny bit ahead, so I took the opportunity to grab a favourite set that always make me smile and got busy.

So, this is MFT Penguins In Paradise stamp set
I love that the tree is really bendy so can go either way
Coloured with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and Polychromos Pencils
Paper is from a very old Papermania Capsule Collection
Sentiment came with the Penguins

Hugs to all

Sanford (DT) DTDF

This time last week I was mooching about in a t-shirt and cotton shorts.  This week it is thick jeans, a long sleeved t, and a chunky jumper!  

OK, so today's card is bright, warm, sunny, and happy, in complete contrast
to outside, but it is also very CAS.

sentiment comes with the image

The image is painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
and the matter layer was simply inked with Distress Oxides

AYLI (DT) Favourite Animal

Morning all, popping by today with my make for another AS YOU LIKE IT challenge!

The theme for this fortnight is Your Favourite Animal (and why).

OK, so, favourite animal....in terms of the one I share a house with, it has to be a kitty, but if it's that other animal then what else could it be but a cute, fluffy, frisky, and now quite rare, little red squirrel!

It's difficult to find cute red squirrel stamps (some of them look a little possessed)
but this set is just sooooooo adorable!

Colouring Medium:  Distress Inks (ReInkers)

Our sponsor for this challenge is
Fantastic Ribbons

DTDF (DT) Nancy Gardens

I am fretting about our grass, if it doesn't get cut soon I may never be able to get out of the back door.  Toad intended to cut it last weekend, but no sooner had he mentioned it and it poured with rain.  Sigh.  I guess he knows what job he will be attempting later today!

I bet Nancy doesn't have that problem, after all, she was born to garden.

Right then, the yummy stuff

Nancy and the Tweet flowers are painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) with some
Polychromos Pencils to help detail her hair a little.

Speaking of hair, I am off for a tail trim now.  Maybe I should just lay down on the lawn.

DTDF (DT) Hoola Twila

Hello peeps, I'm here today with a little bit of happy for you

I do have a real soft spot for the Roberto's Rascals characters, especially this
cheeky little girl, Twila - there is just something so absolutely joyful about her, whatever
she is doing, and she always makes me smile - I hope she will do it for you too!

So, the things I have used:

Twila has been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) with Polychromos detail for her hair.

Whatever you are up to, have a wonderful weekend!  We are off to visit my Oldies in a little while, then dashing back for me to make a "Somerset Pork Casserole" for dinner, and watch the F1 qualifying for the China Grand Prix.  In there somewhere I intend to have a good inky session!

AYLI (DT) Favourite Colouring Medium

Not quite sure where the last fortnight has gone but it is time for another challenge from the AS YOU LIKE IT team and this time the theme is "Your Favouring Colouring Medium".

So, I bet you think I am going to straight in there and boldly say Distress Inks (ReInkers)!

You would be partly right, but I have been venturing deeper and deeper into the world of
mixed media, and I have to say, I am surprising myself by how much I am
loving it.

A very simple CAS card, but this shows off the colours very well.

Supergirl is painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) but
her hair is done with Polychromos Pencils
and the splatter background was done with Copics and ProMarkers with

I had so much fun splatting the background that I completely forgot I had intended to
stamp and mask the image before getting inky, so in the end I stamped and
fussy cut her.

Our sponsor for this challenge is a perennial favourite

DTDF (DT) Bitty Bears

Morning all, hope the Spring sunshine of the last couple of days is cheering everyone up.

There's rather a lot of sunny colours and little bodies on my make today,
and all the little bodies are bear

MFT Die-Namics Celebrate die (currently o.o.s)

A lot of Post-It Notes sacrificed themselves in the name of masking for this one, and
the bears are all painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

It's the F1 Bahrain grand prix this week, and it's a live race (rather than hightlights) so if anyone needs me, you won't have to search far.

Happy weekend everyone!
