Some crafty colouring relaxing

Hi all well I had a break from crafting the beginning of the year and I have been concentrating on a new healthy and active lifestyle so have been spending most of my spare time in the gym. I have also given up making my plaques and things made to order on ebay and etsy and decided that I wanted to get my crafts back as more of a hobby and more enjoyable when I do have some spare time. I felt like I was working to much to deadlines and the fun and relaxation of crafting had just gone.

Unfortunately I have been unwell with my chest this past week and have spent some time in hospital. Well I thought that as I am resting up at the minute I would do a spot of colouring/crafting. I have had loads of digital images in a box printed and waiting for colouring so they were ready to hand which was very convenient. I set myself up in front of the tv, with my tray and Spectrum Noir Pencils, feet up and set off colouring a range of images. Once I had coloured a few and felt in the mood, I decided I would venture into the abandoned craft room and make some cards.

I have actually missed making cards and have really enjoyed making these 3 so far. I have also decided that saying I have made some cards for fun I would also enter some blog challenges. I will add details of each challenge under each individual card.

Well here goes for the first one

This card I have used a saturated canary image.

This card uses a backing paper from nitwit's and I have added black cardstock, silver glitter card (embossed with my dots folder), some ribbon, a diecut bunting which I added guilding wax to and then a stamped sentiment. I have added glossy accents and stickles to the image to make it pop. Finally finished with some gems.

Card No 2

This time for a My Besties image from Sherri Baldy. 
The backing for this card I have created using my Spectrum Aqua Pens. I then have added some stamped embossed details and some glitter around the edges. Additional details are an embossed butterfly panel with a ribbon and bow detail, A die cut gilded butterfly. Finished with stickles glitter glue and gems and a diamante cluster on the bow.

Finally Card Number 3

This card features the very cute Jolly from Teddy Bo. 
Papers are from Nitwit collections and sentiment is from my stash. I have added some card candy and brad details on the card to give it more of a masculine feel and of course I have added some glossy accents to his eyes and the little heart.

Well thank you all for stopping by. Hope you enjoy my creations.
I have 3 more images coloured and will be back to share my cards when completed so watch this space.

Bye For now
