VLS - Give me some Suagr


Inspiration time over at Vera Lane Studio.

Being Valentine's Day, I thought I'd best share my lovely Sugar ATC.

I have used Val and the Tall Heart Stalk from Give me some Sugar.




Coloured with copic markers and gel pen.
I distressed the edges of my patterned paper -this is another of my gel plate creations.
I think she is very sweet and just perfect for Valentines Day.

I am entering my Val in the following Challenges:

VLS - Arthur Ave Polka Dot Fairy


Inspiration time over at Vera Lane Studio.

Have you seen the 'seeing red' Valentines ATC swap Corrie is hosting over on our Facebook page?
You can use pinks, reds, skin colours, black and white.
So here is the  first one I made using Polka Dot Fairy from the gorgeous Arthur Ave Collection.



A great challenge to stick with the colours allowed.
Coloured with copic markers and gel pen.
I left out "Polka" from the sentiment when I fussy cut it as my background (lining) is dots!
LOL, yes, I try to have fun when creating as I'm just as quirky as Janet's images at times.

OK, so I made a second ATC for the swap which I will show you as well.
I have used the Iyoga set from last year.


Coloured with copic markers.
Staying with the colours allowed again, I distressed the edges of my patterned paper - I actually was feeling quite stressed the day I made this so the distressing of the paper was a bit therapeutic!
I really do love how she turned out and hope whoever she goes to loves her too!

VLS - Numbers & Circles


Inspiration time over at Vera Lane Studio.

This week I have used Numbers and also the new set Circles (released last month). 







Coloured with copic markers and gel pens.

I would love to say this was easy to make, LOL, but it was a labour of love. 
Having said that, it wasn't hard, just a bit fiddly and a fair bit of thought had to go into it.
How cute are those flowers made by using the circles images. You do get a few different circles and stems in the set so you can make these easily enough and have a bit of variety as well.

I am entering them in the following Challenges:

VLS - Wings for Things


New Release Inspiration time over at Vera Lane Studio.

I have used one of the wings from the just released Wings for Things PDF sheet along with Buns Head and Sun from the Arthur Ave Collage Sheet No.1 PDF and made this gorgeous card.






I love it and oh so colourful!!!!!!
These PDF's make making a card on the go so quick and easy.
I printed the PDF out on sticker paper and then cut them out - cut them out watching tv and have them bagged ready to go for even quicker creations.
The little saying on the right is also included.

VLS - The Homemaker


New Release Inspiration time over at Vera Lane Studio.

I have used one of the wings from the just released Wings for Things PDF sheet along with the current $2.00 Tuesday image (only one week left for her) The Homemaker.


 



I made another Planner clip with her and I have named her "The Homemaker Angel".
LOL, she has that "where the heck is that Fairy Angel when you need her" look!

So I coloured the image with copic markers, fussy cut and then added my wings before putting through the laminator machine.
Fussy cut again, made my slit and glued in the paperclip.
