Colouring in

Well I recently succumbed to the temptation and bought some Copic Sketch Markers and today I had some time to play with them. Still a novice and learning how and what to colour in with them.

I now realise that I haven't got many colours that blend together so my palette is very limited. Oh dear I need to buy some more hahaha.

Here are my efforts from this afternoon.

I realise that I don't have any colours for hair, hence her rather pale brown hair. The shading didn't go right on the bottle of fizz but as I said this is my first real attempt.

Night-time Christmas

Here are three cards for Christmas I made last night. I think these sort of cards are called "scraplings" as they are the scraps cut off of bigger cards? I'm sure if I'm wrong someone will correct me - (please) :)

Again quick and simple designs using papers from Bella Road, "Everyone Loves Christmas" and bits and bobs lying around my desk and drawers. Need to have a good de-clutter I feel.

Thanks for stopping by and maybe even leaving a comment.

A Christmas Card

Today I want to show you the Christmas card I made for Kathy's Waffle Sketch 2 Circles 2 Go and as it happens also is the Daring Cardmakers Challenge this week! Double whammy!

I have used papers and stickers from Echo Park Paper Co "Everyone Loves Christmas by Bella Road" and just followed the sketch. Easy, very easy indeed.

Now visit both of those wonderful blogs and see what inspires you!

Well my kids don't think it is spooky enough! haha.

I have made this card for the Tando Spooktastic Challenge which finishes at the end of this month.

I've used a Tando house and fence that I inked and used Distress Ink on the hill and for the sky. The bats were hand drawn. As I recently purchased some Copic pens I thought I had better start to use them so tried to make a cobbled path effect with them. Then stamped lettering as I'm not sure whether Halloween is a "happy" time hence the question mark. haha.

I'm back

after a long blog absence ..... sorry Miss! ... I have something I have created to blog about.

I have made a card for the Totally Gorjuss Challenge 102 which this week is a Bingo board. You have to choose 3 elements from that board and use them on your project. I chose stars, buttons and pearls and made this card. Quite manly I thought and will come in useful later on in the month for my bil's birthday.
A very simple and quick card to make so I guess I will be making more in the future. Thanks for stopping by my blog and why not pop over to Totally Gorjuss and take a look at their challenges to.
