Snowy winter scene

Technically, it's not a card yet.  But I have done the topper!  this one is from the new At Christmas Time set of stamps from Papermania.

Mum and I first saw this stamp at a promarker class we went to at In2Crafting at Wickford 

In2Crafting run an online shop as well, but I would definitely recommend a visit to the shop as René and John who run it are super helpful.

Anyway, this image has been coloured using a combination of promarkers and spectrum noir pens.  The glittery "snow" effect was achieved using a quickie glue pen and my trusty favourite - Glamour Dust!

Winnie Polkadoodle owl

This week I thought I would have a go at colouring a digi image from the Kraft Sprinkles cd from Polkadoodles.

First, I coloured the background of the card, so I was positioning my image in correct colours, then I coloured in and layered the images I printed off with promarkers.  I glued the fence  so it curved slightly, which I think gave a good effect.

I do like the muted tones here, but stupidly didn't write down the colours.

I was pleased with the results though - not quite up to Nikki's standards, but quite passable for me!
