About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Craft Your Days Away #4; Friday Sketchers

Good Evening everyone. Another cold and miserable day here in West Yorkshire. Hubby was away last night for business in London early this morning which I meant I got to do the early dog walk AND the afternoon dog walk which culminated in 2 soakings!!!

Anyway, to brighten up my evening I have created this autumnal tilda for the Craft Your Days Away Challenge which also asked for some doodling. I tried my hand at some leaves. Hope they're OK. I used a bronze glitter pen to blend with the other colours.

I've also followed the sketch for this week's Friday Sketchers.

The base DP is by Paper Pizazz and the foremost DP is Prima 'Fairy Flora'.

Tilda has been coloured with copics as follows :-

skin - E00, 21, 93
hair & boots - E33, 35, 37
top - R00, 02
jeans - YR00, 02, 04, 07
ribbon - R02, 05
leaves -YG63, 67
flowers - R02, 08
shading - W1, 3, 5

I hope you like it and the challenge links are below, x
