Morning my lovelies :) Another scheduled post from me, as I am still without t'internet until 1st September - (I am really missing blogging) :(
So, this is my DT card for One Stop Craft Challenge where this week our theme is 'Anything But Square', and we are sponsored by Stitchy Stamps. Check out the rest of the DT's creations, they are fab!
Now next week I will be mostly making......'Steampunk' style cards. I had a couple of days practising my colouring and blending with Flex-markers and Pro-markers, and got quite carried away, so I am on a bit of a roll with them.
The flex markers are quite juicy and so I kind of used them for a bit of foundation and fluidity, and as they are mostly very pale shades, you wouldnt believe how many I used in this pic!.. Im still loving the PM Fine Nibs, as I naturally favour very dark, rich shades IRL, and the precision application has given me a lot more confidence to experiment.
I was also inspired by a recent trip to my blogging friend Paula. She has been sharing her progress on a colouring course, and I was quite taken by the tips for colouring cylindrical objects, so the top hat in this pic was almost a breeze! :) I used a Kenny K image and Prima Botanical papers. The gears, keys and clock wings were cut from my Silhouette digi die cutter, and I dug out some old peel offs for the chains.
I am entering this card in the below competitions:
Kenny K - Layers
Totally Gorjuss - As You Like It.
Papertake Weekly - Dies to Die for - Spellbinders and digi-dies.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I really, really cant wait to get back to normal and visit everyone soon! :)
