Dottie's all distressed!

This week over at Dottie's World , Nicole set the challenge to include some distressing in your Dottie projects; any type of distressing, as long as you include a Charmed Download.
I wanted to try an image from the Boy, Oh Boy! collection I haven't yet used but I am not sure it was the right one to go with the challenge, perhaps something more traditionbal would have worked better. Still I loved colouring this image and had great fun trying a few different distressing techniques.

I distressed the edges of my patterned paper and sentiments with some scissors and roughly inked them, I used ink on my Cuttlebug embossing folder and once again, roughly inked the edges, I included some paper tearing on my project-something I haven't done for ages and lastly I srunched up the brown layered nestie and used metallic rub-ons to create a more textured effect...this doesn't really show...perhaps I should have been a bit more heavy handed. LOL
Hope you can pop over and join in the destressing distressing fun!
It's my turn to set the challenge over on Dottie's World next week, and as it's my birthday I have some very special Birthday Blog Candy up for grabs kindly donated by Charmed Crafts and Cards. Make sure you drop by to find out the details!

I ended up not really using the grey (although I did use C1 to add a bit of shadow on the blue wing and beak) it's not compulsory to use all three colours but I usually try to. Here's what I ended up with;

Dottie's World - It's a small thing!

It's Lou's turn to set the challenge over at Dottie's World...a boy did I struggle!LOL Here's what she said;
"This week I want you to think small, I'd like you to use your Charmed download on a project that is smaller than which you would normally make. I won't give any specific dimensions, just think dinky (small)..........This should be fun!!!!!!!!!!!"
Now at first I though shrink plastic....but do you think I could find it in the chaos I call my craft room! So in the end I resorted to making a little card, it's just over 7 x 9cm so very roughly around a quarter of the size I normally make my cards! Boy did I have fun making it!!!!!

Can I please say thank you to the lovely Net who sent be the butterflies and punches leaves THANK YOU!!!!
Make sure you pop over and join in with this challenge, just remmeber, think small! LOL

Dottie with Hearts!

This week over at Dotties World it is Gunns turn to set the challenge and she wants us to include a heart or hearts on our creations and well as some doodling and obviously one of the fabby Charmed Downloads.

I chose to use Water Lily from the Pixie Chicks #2 and rather than put her onto a layered backing I put her directly onto the patterned paper. This is not something I do very often but as I doodled in metallic pen I wanted to keep this on view. This is a great way of doodling by just adding a bit of sparkly interest to a patterned paper. Have a go and join ibn our Dottie Challenge!

Playing Copic catch up!

Hello there, trying to play a bit of catch up here while I can. Had another hectic week with Statementing reviews, Physio and Occupational Therapy to squeeze in as well as work. We have all been full of coughs and colds, I am feeling rotten and on top of everything my mum was rushed back into hospital on Wednesday. Will things ever calm down!
Anyway, I didn't schedule this, there were a few technical issues and I have only just got around to blogging this week's DT card for the Copic Colour Challenge.
This week's colours are;

and here's what I came up with.

Eagerly waiting to see who is going to join us on the Design team, so watch this space!!!!!
