Hi again :)
Although it has been pretty quiet here on my blog for the last week (due to Zoe & I sick with the flu) I have still been able to spend some time putting a few designs together :)
The weather here has been warming up quite nicely lately so a few days ago I took my Copics & image out into the garden & sat there in the sun colouring this gorgeous little Sorcerer to life :)
This gorgeous image is from The Paper Shelter. He was one of three images that I chose when winning one of their challenges about a month or so ago. He was a pleasure to colour :)
I tried extremely hard not to add any flowers lol. Instead I got my star stencil out that I have had for donkeys years & put it to good use. Mental note: Buy a star die - can you recommend one?
I also used my circle punch which has been collecting dust & then got my hands on some buttons from my 'oldies stash'. I purchased the twine about three months ago & finally got around to using it :)
The DP is from my oldies stash too. The star DP is from NRN Designs...are they even still around? The yellow plaid & purple DP's, I wouldn't even have a clue nor would like to guess as they were in my scrap stash.
I have used a few MS punches & have distressed the edges with Ranger Distress Ink - Chipped Sapphire. The pale yellow ribbon with gold edges are from my oldies stash too.
So what items are new that are on my design? lol That's a good question lol. The Little Sorcerer's Apprentice image is & so is the Halloween sentiment ticket which is from Paper Cupcakes (which I also won in a challenge over at There's magic in the air).
I have decorated the inside to co-ordinate with the outside.
I think it all came together quite nicely :)
This adorable little Sorcerer has magically added this design into my
