Well I absolutely loved trying out this sketch todayfrom the sketch saturday challenge blog at


Manga Lime and Orange

I just love the colour combination of the Lime and Orange. I have used Doodlebug Papers and the fabulous Manga stamp from Funky Kits.  I have coloured it in using my Prisma Colour pencils and was very unsure as to how to colour them as they are not your cutesy kind of stamps. I love the sketch and will be keeping it for future use..Here is a close up of her


Thanks for looking and I love your messages…although I dont seem to get that many !!

Pink Manga

I have used the new Manga stamp from Funky Kits which I adore. I have coloured her using my Prisma Color Pencils.

The Message was done on the computer…here is a close up..


Thanks for looking and Happy birthday Tinks

Playful Petals Sitting girl

I love the paper range which is Playful Petals from Daisy Bucket Designs, I used ribbon and heart headed pins from stash, pearls from Basic Grey,  and three swarovski bi-cones on the end of each pin which really finishes them off and add’s that all important sparkle.


I have used one of the Gorguss Girls Stamps from www.funkykits.co.uk and I have coloured the image with my wonderful Prisma Color Pencils…thanks for stopping by x
