ooo this is new

Only came on here quickly (I thought haha) to make a blog post and everything has changed.  Hope I can still work Blogger?

What I wanted to show you today was a card I made for the April challenge over on Tando Creative Challenge Blog.  Their challenge this month is Yellow and Green.



I have again been playing with my Copic Sketch pens and on the advise of the talented Joanne over on  Ambrosia and Iron blog used one pen on each monster and practised my shading.  


The monster stamps are from Paper Smooches and I love their big fat bellies so good to make look round and full - haha.


The star is a Tando one in their grab bag and it is painted with several colours of acrylic dabber paint.  Sadly these dabbers are no more as they have all dried up and the remaining paint has been smeared onto pages in my journal to create backgrounds - messy but such fun. :)


So thanks for stopping by today and if you get the chance have a go at the Tando Challenge.  Thanks.
