Remembrance

I designed and laser cut this poppy using 4mm Oak Veneer MDF - oh how I love it when a project comes together and everything fits lol.  I am writing this post while an extension to this project is underway, resin filling the poppy.  I am not a resin user by any means, just a bit of dabbling here and there and no great success alas.  It is why I have take a pic of the poppy cross for this challenge before attempting the resin filling.  No matter what happens I will share the result with you - going to take a couple of days to set then I will know if this has turned into a bin job or good enough to give as a gift to my army daughter :) :) 

Update - happy days, it worked better than I could have hoped with the resin filling. The poppy cross is now with my daughter and on her desk at work.  Super big smiles from me.

      Anything Goes with an option of Water

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)  


I made this card using a combination of 2 painting programs, Photoshop and Procreate.  The fish and background were coloured on Procreate and then I brought my colouring into Photoshop where I have a card template made which I can manipulate to suit the coloured image and also add any text.  This lovely fish is from IKEsART Tropical Fish set.

I so struggle with Halloween, totally hate it so this creation was somewhat difficult.  I used digital elements to create the card and then wrote a spell poem - not really my forte but a bit of fun anyway.


I am entering this card in the following challenges :

I just love this saying - it is awesome to be different and not follow the 'sheep' ROFL.  I created this card digitally, background like the one here are such fun to do - just blob on the colours and then play with some of the program settings to get different mixing results.  Next the birds and text were added, a very quick digital card to make but rather like how it has turned out :)

Ahhh how could anybody resist giving this wee pup a treat at Halloween, just look at that face.  Do you think a beef and pumpkin flavoured biscuit would be acceptable lol.

For this card I used Ike's Howl-oween image and digitally coloured using Procreate and added the background too.  I then exported the image to Photoshop to finish off my digital card where I have a card template made up of several layers which I can manipulate with relative ease.  Really enjoying the digital colouring at the moment lol

This fortnights challenge 'Furry Friends' has been chosen by Debbie.


I created this wee plaque of one of our pussy cats from a photo I took of him.  Lots of image editing - background removal, playing with contrast etc. needed to prepare the image for laser burning but I am so pleased with how he turned out.  I really must get round to doing his sister Bree so I have the matching pair, just wish there were more hours in the day.
