Hello everyone. I think I’ve finally recovered from the three days Crafters Companion ‘Craftaganza’. Phew – what a full-on three days that was. There was ink blending, stamping, stenciling, die-cutting, foiling, sewing (not for me!!), and any number of hints and tips from the Crafters Companion ‘tutors’.
Since being back, I have been at work, but managed to try some colouring with a new set of Copics, and found they actually blend well with the Crafters Companion Illustrator pens too – win-win situation.
Here is a card which shows my colouring:
Here is a close-up of the glittery silveryness and colouring:
I stamped the Concord and 9th ‘Grateful For Everything‘ in a newly acquired Gina K Amalgam ink – liking this for colouring with alcohol markers – then set to the colouring.
I used grey for the leaves as a ‘free’ neutral colour. The silver is a piece of glimmer card I had left over – how handy are those little strips?
I find combining a colour and a sketch challenge really helps me plan what card I want to make, and you may have noticed I have done that in the past. This time, I went away from the Christmas cards – for a short time only – and decided this would best suit a birthday theme.
I shall be entering this card into the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – red, aqua, silver
Freshly Made Sketches – sketch
Seize the Birthday – birthday with option of CAS
Watercooler Challenges – occasions
It seems WordPress has made some changes to the way you add items to a blog post, and I must say I like how much more simple it is now. I have even played and updated by challenge badge page………..I think I’m going to play with the ‘all about me’ page next – maybe add some photos……. 🙂 🙂
