Tooth Fairy

Hi guys, Happy New Year!
Here is my entry for the Spoonflower 'Mythical Creatures' fabric competition. My 'Tooth Fairy' is a fiery redhead with deep pockets for all those gold coins. Click here to see her in repeat.

There are lots of great designs that you can vote for here. If you are new to Spoonflower it's a print on demand fabric company - and now you can even sell your fabric through them. Cool huh! They also run weekly comps. The next one is 'birds' - anyone can enter so check it out.

As per usual I like to give away freebies - so check out 'My Download Page' to grab my Tooth Fairy clipart.

Hi, Pam has got another super challenge @ 365 'Circles'. This one is for my hubby - Merry Christmas sweet.
I made the background paper with a halftone patterned brush. I like the way the circles become gradually smaller and there are definitely more than 10! I added a bit of text and Santa. Voila. Enjoy.

EDIT: My Santa is now available at Squigglefly 2010.

EDIT: My Santa is now available at Squigglefly 2010.

Here is a quick place/name card idea for a 'Santa Claus' set I designed. It's too little late for release but decided to show it anyway. And now you can grab the Santa clipart from 'my downloads' page for free (or see the side bar).

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

Gingerbread Man

A quick CPS card and probably my last for the end of the year. I've flipped sketch 147 used my new digital stamp Gingerbread man. Here I've swapped my watercolour pencils for Photoshop and coloured the line version of the Gingerbread man (the set also includes silhouette version and two borders - see below). The dotty background is a digital paper by Lynne Grieveson at Digital Designers and I've type a text overlay for the bottom paper. Enjoy!

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone and a glorious new year!

Edit: I'm also entering this card for Get Sketchy 'Your favourite colour' challenge - and my favourite colour is Green! Dont forget to check out my free download page. I've just added a clipart Santa - see sidebar!

Introducing Celestial my new stamp set for Squigglefly (Dec 5th). The range includes a Star, Tree, Bell, Bauble and Heart in both lined and solid versions (JPG & PNG). Perfect for colouring or to use as a brush.

I've used the solid bauble image to make a brush in Photoshop. Then I stamped the bauble in three different sizes and colours. I printed them onto 'Misty' paper (from Lindcraft), cut out and popped them up with foam stickies. Add a bit of black Artline pen. Volia! A quick and simple card.

Quick Photoshop tip: If you find it hard to choose colours (like me) stamp your image onto a transparent layer first. Then add a 'fill' layer above the stamp and select 'create clipping mask'. You can quickly change the colour of the 'fill' layer to see which colour fits you existing scheme. This method works great with digital paper too. Hope this helps!

'Tis The Season

I've been thinking of trying the colour challenge at Embellish for a couple of days now - and when I saw Lucy's second challenge 'Wings & String" I had the perfect idea. The colour scheme for Embellish is'Orange, Brown & Green' - which works wonderfully with my Turkey.

I coloured him in Photoshop - printed, cut and popped him onto the sentiment 'Tis The Season'. Due to a slip of the finger with my printer he came out a lot smaller than I expected - so I made a mini card instead.

The Turkey image is from my 'Birds OF A Feather' stamps set at Squigglefly. The twine is DMC cotton thread #581. Papers by Kikki K & Misty.

Panda Magic

Hi, Just wanted to share my latest accomplishment of 'Member Spotlight' over at Magnolia Grace. Check out my new blinky! Brooke kindly hosts the 'Rory Email Club' where she previews her new digital images. As a member you get to sample her great designs and clipart for free. So if you want to join in - check out her site Magnolia Grace.

p.s. Brooke loves seeing what crafters do with her images. So send in your creations and you may be the next Member Spotlight with a blinky to boot!

Okay, here is my tag for 365 & Digital Tuesday. Pam is running two challenges that caught my eye so I decided to combine them (hope that's not cheating). Challenge # 277 'Just a fraction' is to use just a portion of your image & challenge # 278 'You can’t miss it' is to only colour part of you image with glitter. When I saw these two challenges I immediately thought of Brooke's panda - which has a bow just waiting to be zinged with glitter.

Digital Tuesday also has a sparkle theme so I’ve added some silver twine to match the bow.
