Twisted Easel Card and another bookmark!!

I decided to have a go at a Twisted Easel Card last night and as easy as it was to make I had an idea in my head of how I wanted to decorate it but it just didn't come together like I had imagined. I still like it and my boys loved it, so it will get used..
 The Tilda and Edwin images had been coloured awhile ago...Edwin is coloured with Aquacrayons and Copics and Tilda is coloured in with aquacrayons and H20's. The boat is coloured in with copics and Tria's.. The DP paper is kaisercraft. I didn't add any embellishments because I thought the paper was busy enough!! I'm not overly happy with the colour of Edwin's skin but I'm off to Paperific here in Melbourne on Sunday so I'm hoping to pick up a few new Tria markers to fix that problem!!

I have entered this card in the following challenge:
* Creative Card Crew - For a Child
* A Gem of a Challenge - Anything Goes
* Quirky Crafts - Twisted Easel Card and /or a mothers day gift!!

I also made another another bookmark for my younegr son Logan.. He started speech therapy a few weeks ago and I altered a notebook (which you can see in a few posts below) for him and when I made the bookmark for me and Liam Logan decided he wanted one too for his speech book!! He did choose totally different stamps and papers from what I ended up using but I was sitting here the other night and just got an idea in my head and so went with it!!!  This is a sweet pea stamp I won a few weeks ago and DP paper I got from a friend. I coloured the dragon in with Tria markers and copics. I then just found some cross stitch cottons that matched the colours of the papers, added a button, added the star bling and coloured it in with a tria marker and added the antique embellishment. Logan absolutely loved it!! As did I!!

I've entered this in the following challenges:
* A Gem of  a Challenge - Anything Goes
* Crafts and Me Challenges - Yellow

Well that's it from me for today!! Another busy day for me tomorrow,  so I'm going to  get tidy up then off to bed for me!

Until Next Time...Enjoy!! xx
