Friday Sketch Challenge #4

One day late but finally blogger is allowing me to upload my photo's. I made my card nearly 2 weeks ago but of course when I want to upload it I can. This weeks challenge is another great sketch from Tracey. I have used Marci from La La Land Craft. Which you can buy at Mad for Markers. I have lost my list of makers I used on my card but from looking at the card I think they are :
Red-R24,27,29
Green-G20,21,24,29
Hair-E74,77,79
Teddy-E31,33,35,37
Boots-C5,7,9

Funny how less then 12 months ago I would of had no idea what these numbers meant.









So go check out all of the other amazing DT cards and enter here if you dare.lol

Friday Sketch Challenge #3

It's week 3 over at the Friday Sketch Challenge Blog and there are so many new and wonderful cards to look at. It's been a busy, busy first week back at school for most of us but the fact that I went away to Sydney to met some amazing women ment that is was hard to get back into the swing of things. But this is one of the lovely images I coloured while I was away. You can get her over at Tickled Pink. And Amanda and I found some cool and different christmas D.S.P so was good to use that aswell. This is my very first copic xmas card and I can not wait to make more. I especially loved colouring in my flowers with my copics. Go the copics. So head on over to the Friday Sketch challenge for some inspiration.




Copics I used

R 24,27,29, 59

Random from from Week end

Well today has been the only day that I have had the time to post or even play on the computer. I had a fantastic time last weekend. Meeting some lovely ladies. We did lots of practicing different techniques with our copics, lot's of talking (well me mostly) and lots of spending(well Leigh mostly).lol

Just wanted to put up some techniques that I learnt over the weekend. If you are interested in copics head over to Mad for Markers and Sammi can help you out.
