Remembering Lily

Today we are remembering Lily Chilvers a truly beautiful artist and soul taken from us too soon.
To honour Lily we are sharing projects we have made in her memory using the wonderful, whimsical and wacky art she shared with us all.
I hope you're enjoying this wonderful Blog Hop in memory of such an amazing artist.
And I hope you've been inspired by what beautiful projects you see throughout this hop.


I chose to do two Halloween themed tags for this hop using these adorable images Chris The Pumpkin Kid and Gloomsville Cordelia Pumpkin. These images were just fabulous to colour, I really enjoyed making them. 
I hope you enjoy looking at all the other creations as you continue your journey through this amazing blog hop.
May our thoughts and prayers be with the family and friends of the truly talented Lily Chilvers

Inspired By A Song......Or Two

Happy Friday crafty friends
I've been so busy this week doing various crafty things, I thought I may as well throw in a card for good measure as I haven't made one in a wee while.....and after all, that is what got me started.
So it's my favourite shape to use........ square, this one is 6 x 6

Mat and layering papers are not anything in particular, just various ones from my stash that fitted in with my colour scheme.
The image I've chosen for this card is from The Goblyn Workshop and she is called Dahlia Of The Dead.  I've coloured her with my Promarkers using Aubergine, Plum Preserve & Spring Lilac.  Hair colours are Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon, Cappuccino and the skin colours are Coral, Sunkissed Pink and Dusky Pink.

I've used my Impression Obsession spider web die to create a border to compliment the digi stamp and added some sticky faux pearls in the corners.  I Then placed some mulberry paper flowers on top of some scrunched up sisal that I picked up at our local garden centre, and added some die cut foliage sprigs to finish off.

Two blogs that I want to share my card with this week are Left Of Center who's theme is Inspired By A Song.  Well I kinda got inspired by three songs with this marionette image, "Living Dead Girl - Rob Zombie", "Start Wearing Purple - Gogol Bordello" and "Living Doll - Cliff Richard And (of course) The Young Ones".  And finally The Corrosive Challenge who's theme is Perfectly Purple.

I hope you've enjoyed snooping around today, please share some crafty warmth and come back again soon xx

A T C Fest

How do crafters?
Here I am again with yet more ATC's...........I think I've become addicted.
I've done a set of four this time, all different images but I decided to do them all in the same colour scheme.

They started life as just plain old kraft card from my stash, which I die cut with a nestie.  I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain and then randomly scattered some Aged Teal Frantage around the edge too (there I go again with the Frantage).

The first image is from The Goblyn Workshop.  Coloured with Promarkers Marine, Turquoise, Frosted Jade and then slightly lightened in the middle with a blender pen.  The die is one of my newest additions from Frantic Stamper "Dem Bones Skeleton".......I love it

The next image is also from The Goblyn Workshop, he is Evil Jester.  Promarker colours were Marine, Frosted Jade, Pastel Green and again more fading out with the blender pen.  The die used on this one is "Barbed Wire" from Cheery Lynn Designs.
Again another great image from The Goblyn Workshop, he is "Charlie Zombie Cat".  Coloured with Marine, Turquoise and Frosted Jade (no blender pen this time).  The die used is another Frantic Stamper purchase "Bats And Ghost".

And finally this is one of my favourites, the image is from Kenny K and she is Elf Queen.  Coloured with Marine, Frosted Jade, Pastel Green and the blender pen.  The spider and web die is from Impression Obsession and I've added some dabs of Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles in "Graceful Mint" to finish it off.
So with all of this sparkly Frantage and Twinkles, I'm off to play along in this weeks challenge at Wicked Wednesday ATC, who's theme this week is "Make It Sparkle"
I hope you've enjoyed stopping by and please call again soon xx
