Lil Inker Designs

Hi, Hi Butterfly!

Hello friends!

Today, I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge which has a lovely colour combo – grey, lavender and black.

I created a background panel using watercolours and Distress Oxide ink. I must confess I spent far longer on this than I should have. I couldn’t quite get a colour mix that I felt was representative of the combo. Eventually I was satisfied and cut the panel with the beautiful Lil Inker Designs Butterfly Cover Up die. I adhered the die cut to a black card base and inlaid some glitter card. Finally I added a sentiment, also by Lil Inker, to complete my take.

Thanks for stopping by!

Rosy Hi

Hi Everyone!

I’m sneaking in a last-minute entry to this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

I used the gorgeous Simon Says Stamp Modern Rose Blooms Background stamp which I coloured with distress markers and then spritzed generously with water. This is actually the second impression – I often feel they turn out better than the initial impression.

The sentiment is by Lil Inker Designs.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 23 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 23 was Lil Inker Designs. I loved seeing Tracey use the circle wreath die, which I have, but I decided to use the Baubled Tree die. Kim Heggins’s colour palette provided the colour inspiration!

I created a smooshed background using Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick distress inks and then added the Lil Inker Designs Tree which I’d cut from white glitter card. The sentiment is by Ellen Hutson.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards! This fortnight’s theme is geometrics’ and our sponsor is Uniko.

This was quite a challenge for me. I knew I wanted to use inlaid die-cutting with the cool triangle dies that I bought from Simply Graphic a few months ago AND incorporate the colour combo from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (aqua, black and white). But the design…. well that was a real challenge! I tried so many different versions and decided on this super-CAS layout in the end. The ‘hi’ die is by Lil inker Designs and I replaced the dot above the ‘i’ with a triangle from one of the unused black die cuts to reflect the theme!

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Carol from CarolG Creates. She has some fabulous creations – you must check out her site!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

Swirly Hi

Hello again!

There’s a fabulous colour combo over at the Color Throwdown this week – navy, aqua and pink! So good, in fact, it took me a while to decide how I could best use it in my entry. In the end, I decided to use a Lil Inker Designs background die that I have had for some time now but for some reason I still haven’t used it! I did some inlaid die-cutting and then added a Lil Inker Designs word which I cut from white glitter paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 6 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year.

The sponsor for Day 6 was Lil Inker Designs – and the DT had come up with tons of amazing tags! As I had bought a cute (unused) Lil Inker Designs die at the end of last year, I knew I wanted to use that for my tag. I took one of Lynda Pryor’s tags as inspiration and got to work!

I used the ‘Merry & Bright’ die to make a shaker tag – my second so dar this year! I’m loving it! I like how Lynda used patterned paper as the backdrop for her shaker – perfect way of using up some of my massive paper mountain (which never seems to go down!). To finish of the tag, I stuck it to a frame cut from a Spellbinders die and then added some ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
