Good evening folks .... I hope this finds you all well and fighting fit. I've not posted anything for a while but it's not because I haven't made anything, I just haven't got around to entering them into challenges or posting them. Isn't it always the way though ... life gets in the way and you manage to sit down and colour and sometimes even make a card but to take that next step and get it uploaded is another thing completely lol.
|Just a close up of the colouring - Prisma pencils and solvent on Copic paper|
I've coloured a digi stamp called Summer Dreams from Make It Crafty .... Isn't she just the most divine little thing? I've coloured her with prisma pencils and solvent using one of my new favourite things - nifty little cut n dry brush tip pen nibs from ranger. I also accidentally coloured her using Copic paper instead of my usual Gina K Luxury Paper or Stampin' Up! Whisper White and I must say that I think the pencils have come up really nice on it ... harder to spread but still fun to do. The PP is from Basic Grey and the flowers are of course from Wild Orchid Craft ... one of my most favourite things eva lol.
Well that's where I'll leave it tonight ... I hope you like the card and I will try and get my posts done more frequently .... I did say try lol ...
Just one other quick thing though ... My friend Vicki has convinced me to give Copics a go and I have bought a few and have a few more on order ... I also bought a couple of brands of Copic paper to start practicing on so will let you know how all that pans out lol.
Have a great rest of the week .... Ciao
