Dotties World Sunday challenge

The challenge over at Dotties World this week is set by Louise and she has asked that we do a shaped card, it can be any shape except the usual square or rectangle.
So having been doing some gardening this morning I decided to do my card along that theme.
Here it is

And here is George hiding away in the potting shed
The whole card is coloured with Pro markers, not a piece of paper in sight! This must be the only card I have done in years that doesn't have any paper on.
The images are available at Charmed cards and crafts

Blog candy card

I've done this card for a chance to win the fabulous blog candy being offered by Crafty goings on. Have a look on my side bar.
The image is from the Holly and Madison collection available from Charmed cards and crafts
I've coloured the image using Promarkers. The papers are from Papermania sweet nothings.

The final colours I used were red and black, again using Holly and Maddison images from Charmed cards and crafts

I've made a clipboard from some chipboard and a crocodile paper clip I've had forever.

Colour themed cards 2

The second colour theme I used was pink. Again using Holly and Maddison images from Charmed cards and crafts

Colour themed cards

After doing the pink and brown cards for the Dotties World challenge the other day, I thought I'd do some more sets of the same colours.
I've used Holly and Maddison images from Charmed cards and crafts I ummed and arred about getting these images as I wasn't sure I'd use them! Well, how wrong was I, lol

The first colours I used were blue and green, and as a person who hates green it was surprisingly easy.

The papers are DCWV glitter stack. And the images are coloured using Pro markers

I've done a card inspired by the colours

As usual I've used my promarkers to colour the image which is from the Holly and Maddison collection available at Charmed cards and crafts
The papers are Basic Grey, and the swirl is a gift from Incy68 from DC. I've also used some Anitas 3D clear gloss on the hat and boots.
I loved using these colours so much I did another 2 cards along the same theme.
