Hi, here's my last entry into the Make it Colourful Texture Challenge
All images can be found at
I've tried to add texture to her clothing

and texture in the trees
I hope I'm not being greedy by entering this challenge 3 times it's not so I can have a better chance at winning it's because I am really enjoying creating texture and that's the best part of these challenges, they push me to try new things and learn new techniques.

Hello again, I have been practicing adding texture to my colouring and thought I might add this image into the Make it Colourful challenge you can find this image here

I'm also working on one more for this competition I will put up a pic tomorrow thanks for popping by Andrea xx

Hello, hoping everyone had a Merry Christmas. I had a bit of spare time and decided to colour this big scene I had created using all Make it Crafty images 

It took a while for me to get started on this but once I got going I didn't want to stop. I have several step by step photo's to show.

Sorry about the quality of the photo's, I hope you enjoyed looking at them anyway :)

Hello, I did a bit of bartering with a very lovely young lady recently and in return for my goods she asked for a card made by me, I was so very nervous colouring this image as I look at this lady as one of the queens of colouring but I gave it my best shot and this is what I came up with

She has received this card and loves it, YAY!!
Here are a few progression pics.

So happy she loved it :)
This cute little girls name is Lizzie and you can find her here

Having a play with this cute Santa Mouse again, He's a Stamp Art Design by Kathryne image,
 and can be found at Whimsy Stamps

When I finished colouring this little guy he looked a bit flat

So I thought I try this funny yellow shadow/dotty thing
which I thought to be honest looked a bit silly, but when I put the card together it grew on me and now I'm quite happy with it :)

Thanks for checking out my blog :) feel free to leave a comment.

I needed a break from Christmas Cards so I made this fun Birthday Card for no one in particular, although I thought I would add it to the Make it Colourful Competition hard challenge - muscle definition, but is three cards in one challenge too much?? I have loved learning how to do this and find I can't colour a being that has definition without applying some, whereas before I added some shadow and was happy with that lol Oh these challenges are wonderful :)

and here's a closer look

Oh to have a figure like that lol.

Have a great day :)

Hello, when I checked out the Make it Crafty facebook page today I noticed Zoe had put up a very special post from The Squirrel and The Fox Blog asking crafters to join them in there challenge with the theme 'Use Violet' to support their DT member Mags B and daughter Sacha who are currently fighting Hodgkin's Lymphoma so I decided the least I could do was make a card and 'Use Violet' so here it is.

So I will be entering this into The Squirrel and The Fox Challenge 57

and I will also enter it into the Make it Crafty FB Challenge 3
Hope you like it :)
