About Me

Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom
I have been crafting since May 2008, when in desperation to find an unusual birthday card for my Mum, I gave up looking in the shops and decided to have a go at making my own. I soon realised that crafting is addictive and I haven't brought a card since. In 2011 I completed my certificate in papercrafting as a result of the work I did as part of the course I started entering challenges on line and in magazines. I applied for design teams and also started making samples for Ooh La La Creations for their shows on Create and Craft. I have now completed my Diploma in professional crafting and most recently been runner up in the Papercrafter of the Year 2013 a competition run by Papercraft essentials magazine, I don't have a particular style I like to use elements from lots of styles and techniques, although I do love all things vintage. In 2014 I started to move more towards scrapbooking to take care of the huge family archive of photographs that were stored in my attic. I have continued cardmaking and Scrapbooking through 2015 and 2016 but have also become interested in off the page projects. I hope to be able focus on these in the future.

It's all Rock and Roll at Fab n Funky

Hi there, firstly thanks to all those who entered our last challenge at Fab n Funky you can check our the winners over on the blog now.

This week we have the fabulous Kenny K Downloads sponsoring our challenge this week which means the DT had some fabulous digis to play with. 

 Our theme is 
Its all Rock'n'Roll to me!

This means that you can either use a music inspired theme or image for your card
or as an added twist 
You can use a rock'n'roll song as inspiration 
- in which case tell us what the song is in your post

So come on - have some fun with this one - we can't wait to see your rock'n'roll cards

The prize is a fabulous 5 digis of your choice from Kenny K downloads - so what are you waiting for!

I chose to use Vicky Lee Vicious for my card. 

She is definitely sassy and a little bit punk so when I found these papers on a My Craft Studio Essentials papers CD I just knew they would be perfect for this girl with attitude. I took the colours for Vicky from the papers and coloured her with a mixture of Spectrum Noir markers and added highlights using gel glitter pens. 
Skin Tones - FS1 FS2, FS3, TN1, TN2
Hair LV2, LV3, and purple gel glitter pen highlights 
Outfit - BG1, BG2, BG3, LV2
Boots - Silver gel pen 
Guitar Gold Glitter Gel Pen 

I die cut the letters from white card and coloured them with gold glitter gel pen before sticking them to black card and did the same with the die cut guitar I used as a stopper
