WOYWW + 1 winner + 1 More RAK To go :)

So here's my Space today My Card box up on the top shelf and then on my desk my 2 Rak's I'll pick a winner from last weeks comments and one from this weeks and the lucky Winner from last week is  
..... #4 who is Briget Larsen send me your snail mail and I'll pop it in the post  sorry no ATC that was spoken for may you enjoy this mini RAK instead :)
So I moved a stuff around a little so my markers are lower and off to the side easier to work with plus more space for my little area to post things up to inspire and I have nothing on the go at the moment I have a BD lunch on the weekend so I've got her card all set to go with me and that's about it I do want to make another little paper tower for my inks that don't really stack well and will be making that up soon funny how an Oatmeal box can hold 10 ink pads perfectly and all it cost me to do is my time and use up a little stash I already have at home so easy. I'll try and take some pictures to show you how I make one. 
I'll pop around to as many people as I can

Easels can always be a challenge

This week at Incy Wincy we have 2 wonderful sponsors Doctor Digi and Craft Classes online and where asked to create an easel card I wanted something that was still mail-able so this is a flat easel card.
I'm using Keep off the grass by doctor Digi. Now this one was a little tough to pick a sentiment that I wanted to work so I thought make it funny which always works with these images

Not a Stamp or a Digi in site Oh MY!!

Ok so Roll your eyes on past this Christmas Card it's only January but I can't help myself and I've managed to go through some stock piled stash that is just lying about from FOREVER it seems 
This card is Based on Casing Christmas and I found my red not red enough and my green was not green enough so thank goodness for Ink pads and Voila brighter colours
Isn't Chalk boards all the rage well I wanted to be able to see the writing so I wrote on them with a white Gel Pen then heat embossed a little bit of white dots to look worn out a bit.
With this layout how could I not use a little sitcker Christmas tree it was just Perfect for this challenge

In the Sea

This stamp was a gift from a good friend of mine isn't she gorgeous all coloured up now I should have let the ink dry a little longer instead of not waiting instead of instantly colouring it right up.

Faded Pretty in Pink

Here is something a little new for me I've stamped the image out it a soft yellow brown and then coloured her in using various shades of pinks and browns to give her depth and to make it seem like light it refecting off of her.  Had to sew the one sheet onto the back ground sheet seeing it's acetate
and glue just can be so difficult at times on it :) but I'm happy how this turned out and I managed to include flowers Yah !!

Red Fairy

Here's a sweet little fairy which is now a stamp folder. I bought these studio G cards for the 5 by 5 envelopes and struggled with the odd shaped edge they be a bit of a pain to add papers too so these will all be CAS like. I've spent along time colouring her in with lots of layers slowly built up to try and create the blended look.

Free to be Me !!

This week at Incy Wincy we have a new sponsor Aurellia Art and our challenge is Coloured inspired I've used her image - Shelby. This challenge made me realize I don't own a lot of purple colours so I made do with what I did own. Which didn't turn out to bad I tried to have a little or a lot of the colour pallet we where asked to use and it's a fun combo when it's all done :)
This also works with Darrel's contest the acetate I've had for too long the die cuts,papers and the flower all new and never been used !!!

Cased a Red Christmas Fairy

Well here is a card I've created for the Case-ing Christmas Challenge I changed the color and shifted it a little but it's close to the inspiration and had to add in a bit extra too just because I also used a fairy for her wings like the bird they had in the center,

Simple Birthday Card

Made a Birthday card and thought I'd try out one of these Heidi Swapp Card base that has a tag that you have to lift up to get inside the card, had this for over a year just looking at it I had to hand cut out the tag inside to get it to fit proper and it didn't turn out to badly. I've used a Some Odd Girl Digi I found on my computer from so long ago I don't think I've ever used it before. Stock Piled digital stamps at least they don't make a mess and take up tons of room !!

So here's my space this week
Painted a little board with chalkboard paint to see how it looks just got to find the chalk in my house somewhere to test it out or try and paint on some word or something :)
Went through my paint brushes and removed all the old nasty ones that are great for touch ups around the house but horrible to paint fine details with cut it down in half. 
So the only new stash on my desk is some glue. Was playing around with my die cut tags and see how they might look on something may be the wrong colour but it's the size you want as a sample.

 So here is a painting I've been working on it's still a little raw at the moment I want to add in more details on the branches but looking at the picture now it's not to bad in Real life I want some more detail in it.  So that's all my stuff going on for the new year and If you want to see everyone else's space pop over to Julia's and check out everyone else's desks.

Happy New Year & WOYWW 
hugs Nikki
