A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Sweet 16

Hiya all!  Well, I think my crafty mojo has finally revitalised herself ...... about time too!! She was obviously quite at ease with her bikini and shades on even though I was desperately prodding her to get motivated again ;) 

Today I thought I'd share another fabulous design by Redonkadoodles called 'Goth Birthday'.... and here she is .......

I thought I'd colour her up in my favourite colours and wanted to make a statement with her beautiful hair! Initially I was going to just colour black with a touch of colour but then thought I'd reverse it and add colour with a touch of black instead!  I would have loved to have had my hair like this when I was younger ..... would never have been brave enough though hehe! 

I used Spectrum Noirs for her hair and clothing plus accessories and I used Promarkers for her boots.  I know Goths don't necessarily 'do' sparkle but I couldn't help myself and HAD to add a bit of glitter to her headband and cushion :) 

For the background papers I printed each separate mat from my various Pink Petticoat downloads.  I die-cut the 'Sweet' sentiment, added glitter (of course) and some little liquid pearls around it. 

I didn't want to make the card too flouncy this time by adding ribbon and bows etc but I do hope I've done this fabulous image some justice ...... although, I think she could quite easily make a card look fab just as she is naturally in black and white!!

Spectrum Noirs - Teal colouring:   BT3, BT4, BT5
Spectrum Noirs - Purple colouring:   PL2, PL4, LV1, LV2
Promarkers - Boots:   Black, Cool Greys 5, 4 and 1

Thank you so much for popping by today and I'd love to hear what you think of my colourful Goth :) 

Big hugs to you all and Happy Crafting!!

  6. I just have to comment on this one again. I love the glitter too So I don't blame you for adding touches of it. It looks soooo good! My parents would kill me if I died my red hair those colours! I wish I could turn back time and do it just once! =) I was never the rebellious type. Can't wait to see the fairy digi stamp! Now there is the perfect opportunity to get that glitter out again and go crazy with it! :)
