New Release Paris Collection Julia Spiri

Good Evening to you All

I have some exciting news .. I have joined the DT team for Julia Spiri and today is her new release of the Paris Collection

Julia has illustrated the most beautiful images available at the Etsy store link :
I have had  the wonderful opportunity to colour "Promenade Paris" and make it in to the card below:

I used my polychromos pencils by Faber Castell .. I always use a 300gsm card as I use lots of layers with the pencils and build up the colour.

 I brought the Sweet Paris Collection Paper by Dovecrafts a few weeks ago and was delighted that I had the chance to use it !... It goes perfect with Julia's Paris Collection

The sentiment "Sparkle its your birthday" is a clear stamp  by Penny Black Stamps and is called Sprinkles and Smiles 

Thank for visiting NessyNoodles cards

This weeks makes 31.01.16

Hello to you all and hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday :)

Well this week I have been busy mainly colouring .. along with attending my Occupational craft Class and Pottery Class so I thought I would share my makes with you.

2 years ago when my ADEM ( Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis) started .... unfortunately it effected my hands and I lost the ability to write ..I have come a long way and give thanks to my Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists for their encouragement and understanding.

My colouring and card making is not only a hobby but is great therapy too.

This is a water colour painting I am currently working on in my art and craft Occupational Therapy class at my local hospital .... I was over the moon that I had managed to draw the scene.
We have a new OT and she is inspiring me with her fabulous art knowledge and creativity too. 

I have been attending Occupational classes for a year now and I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of them. I have been blessed to have made some wonderful friends and share our experiences and help each other along the way too.  

This is a cake stand I am currently making for my lovely Mom for Mothers Day - 6th March here in the UK .. so I hope I get it done in time HA!

I adore my pottery classes but this is my last project as I have improved and its time to let someone else have their time with this amazing class and helpers.

I will do a Blog post at some point of my pottery makes.

So the cards I have made and my colourings this week - all coloured with my Polychromos Pencils by Faber Castell

Good Morning and a very Happy Monday and February!!  

A new Month and over at My Besties UK today we have a new challenge for you to win some fabulous Digis from Sherri Baldys.

The theme this month is Buttons and Brads.

I have made 2 cards as part of my DT role and I must say I have really enjoyed colouring and making these cards.

The first card I made was using IMG667 and what a beauty she is.

Card Number 1 IMG667

I used my Polychromos Pencils by Faber Castell to colour image IMG667 
I adore this image and love the vintage feel to her.
I used some pink spotty card stock and red card to frame the image from my stash and added 2 heart buttons to the corners.
 Then I decided to pop 2 pearl gems on the top of each button.

I am really please how she turned out

Card Number 2 IMG521

I couldn't resit this beautiful Image from Sherri ... I am so blessed with some amazing friends and family and thought this is a perfect card for those special folk .... this time I used Best Friends .. but in the future I can maybe use it for sending hugs, thank you -I have so many ideas for this Image.

I started off by choosing my paper first from the Fist Editions Neroli card Pad ... I had purchased the coordinating buttons set previously... so I thought it was a must for the My Besties Uk Challenge of Buttons and Brads!
So I matched my pencils colours (the best I could) with the papers I had chosen.  

The Blues 

The Reds

I decided to go for the Blue hair and think it turned out ok - my first image with blue hair ha !!

Well that's my 2 cards Button and Brads  for My Besties Uk Challange ... thank you for visiting my blog ..remember to pop over to MyBesties Uk and look at the other amazing cards the other DT members have made and also your chance to enter to win some of Sherri"s amazing images.

Hello to you all 

Thanks for visiting NessyNoodle Cards

I am getting used to 'Blogging' and I wished I had found it sooner !

I am disabled and spend a lot of time colouring in bed and resting due to my illness.. (but on a better day I may be able to get in to my craft room for a short period of time to make a card)  ..... social media has been a link to the outside world for me over the 2 years and now becoming a blogger myself and looking at many other blogs...... Its opened yet another world for me. 
So I appreciate that you have taken the time to view my colouring and cards.

Apart from colouring Digis and Stamps... I also enjoy colouring books .. especially Johanna Basford ..Secret Garden, Enchanted Forest and Lost Ocean.... they are her wonderful illustrations that you can colour and bring them to life, with your own personal style.
I am hoping to do a blog very soon about these colouring books and some of my own creations including tips and tutorials.

So this week I have not yet be able to get in to my craft room..... so I have sat in bed colouring the following Digi Images

POLKADOODLES - Lady Horse riding
This Digi I absolutely Love ... I only discovered http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/ this last week.
They have sooo many different Digi Images in this range something for all occasions ... I download 7 ha! I couldn't resist! Look out for more Polkadoodle cards from me soon :) 
I coloured this with my 120 set of Polychromos Pencils and used a White gel roll pen for her buttons and the white spots on her hair ribbon.


SHERRI BALDY - Big Eye Digi Bestie Setting Pretty
This card is for a relative of mine who loves gardening..... so I thought this little sitting Bestie seemed a perfect choice.  Again I used my Polychromas Pencils to colour her. Sherri's Images are a dream to colour and there is so much choice.. take a look at Sherri Baldy's shop over at the Etsy Store you will not be disappointed :0) 

ALL DRESSED UP - Hippie Chick
This gorgeous  image from Wendy Burns is one of my favourites ... I adore butterflies so I guess that's why its a personal favourite of mine :0) ...... Although I wasn't to sure on the yellow background .. I tried to create the warmth of the sun.... (In the UK its Winter and I was craving the warmth ha!) I used my Polychromos pencils yet again to colour this little hippie chick.

ALL DRESSED UP - Three Little Party Girls
I have made this card for a friends granddaughter who will be 9 next month and loves the colour pink and all things girlie ... again I used my Polychromas Pencils and I will be adding glitter to her skirt for that extra bit of sparkle.  This digi from All Dressed Up has 4 images.... firstly three party girls ...and then each girl is on a separate digi ,,, love them :0) 

Thanks again for dropping by to view my blog

All Dressed Up Digi Image 'Party Frock' Card

All Dressed Up Digi Image 'Party Frock' Card 

Good evening to you all 
Thought I would share with you how I made this  card
using ALL DRESSED UP Digi Image 'PARTY FROCK' from Etsy

I mainly use Polychromos Pencils By Faber Castell - they are oil based pencils and I find 
they give a very smooth finish to my pictures.

I generally use the following pencils for my skin shades

I always start off light with Light Fresh 9201-132 and build up in the shaded areas with each darker tone pencil and only using 9201-130 for the cheek area.

Next I decided the dress would be blue and I used the following shades:

I started with the lightest colour first - grey 1 9201-230
Then added Sky Blue 9201-146

 Then I took  Black 9201-199 and added the darkest shaded areas to the dress.

Once I had added the black I used Blue 9201-146 over the top of the black to create the definition to the dress.

When I was happy with the shading I added My Blending Solution with a stub in a downwards movement pulling the dark to light - creating a smoother finish.


Then I moved on to the hair - and used the following colours :

Starting with the lightest 9201-185 and building up to black 9201-199

I always like to ground my digis and add a grey background - I used the following for this:

The Paper I decided to use is by 
Docrafts Papermania The Capsule Collection - 
Parisienne Blue on a white pearl card. 

I added clear diamond stones for her earing and added a larger one to the bow.

 Hope this has been of help and you have enjoyed seeing the creation of this card.

Please leave any comments or questions you have.

Many Thanks
