Guitar Hanglar Boy

This card I made for my son Jack for his birthday. Its not while July, but Im back on my hospital placement on the 11th May (Im spending 16wks in the operating theatre, Im so excited !) so Im frantically trying to get as many cards done before then. The image is by Hanglar and was an extra I had left from a previous project they were sent to me by the very kind and talented Caz.
I coloured the image using copic markers and I seem to be getting the hang of blending the different shades and Im pleased with the result on this card. I tried to give the image a distressed look using Tim Holtz distress ink as the background was too white for the papers. I also added the ink to the sentiment as this was white too.The papers are from the Crate Paper ' Static Collection' and I also used Static Collection die cut shapes. The scallop oval and the oval punch are by SU. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

Thanks for visiting

Mum's Hanglar Card

We had a fantastic time in Portugal (despite some very rainy weather) and i feel quite relaxed and chilled out. I finally got round to making a card today, I made this card for my mum who celebrates her birthday on the 7th May. The image is by Hanglar and is coloured using copic markers (and i managed to do some blending). The papers are from the 7 Gypsies 'Savannah' Collection. I used some Prima flowers and decorated them with some spacers from the Hobby House.
They have a fantastic range of spacers and charms available. I followed Bev's tutorial and decorated the card with a chain and a charm and I love the way this adds extra bling. The circle sentiment is from the 'In Circles' range from Craftwork Cards.
The mum sentiment is a Woodware stamp. I also used an SU scallop and circle punch.
Have a great evening

Sweet Hanglar Girl

Gosh Ive had a busy week. I have just got my results back for my last two assignments and I got passes for both of them, so Im a very happy bunny. The results also mean I have passed all my academic work for the last three years without any re-sits or re-submissions which is quite an achievement as im not a very academic person.
The image for this card is by Hanglar and she is coloured with copic markers. I added some Sakura stardust pen to the wings for added sparkle. The papers are from a DCWV paper pad called 'Nanna's Nursery' in girly colours. The flowers are by Prima (I just love these flowers) I added a small pearlised brad and a spacer to the centre. The charm was bought from e-bay. I used a Martha Stewart heart punch and a Paper shapers punch to add some decoration.

I will be having a blogging break for two weeks as my husband has booked a surprise holiday to Portugal (not a surprise now) over the easter holidays. He said it was a break for all my hard work over the last year and for nearly completing my nurse training -awwwh bless him. Megan and Jack are ecstatic and packing as I blog. I will visit you all when I get back.

Have a great Easter

Tilda with Flowers

This card was made for Megan and Jack to give to their grandma who celebrated her birthday today. The image is by Magnolia and is quite an old one I think. She has been coloured with copic markers. The papers are from the Basic Grey 'Eva ' Collection. The flowers are by Prima and I added a spacer and a brad to the centre. The sentiment is by Craftwork Cards and I inked around the outer edge.
