Always Playful


I love all the images from Lili of the Valley and they are just perfect for colouring in with my copic markers. Here I have used YR12,15,18,E40,41,43,44,47,49,50,51,BG93,95 and 97.
I have been practicing my Copic shading - you know the whole "where the light source is coming from" stuff. Marianne Walker has recently released a book all about it and I cant wait to get my hands on a copy. 
Lili of the Valley have a sketch challenge no. 81 that I might just get into if I post this quick enough.
Allsorts challenge no. 87 have asked us to make cards for males/boys.
Paper Sundae have given us a challenge no. 53 to "Distress" and once I had that distresser thingy in my hand - I couldn't stop. (Even my shopping list for tomorrow is looking a bit jagged around the edges. LOL)

  6. I love this little guy, and looking closely, the stringy bow thingies are a great addition. The Copic shading is terrific.

    About parking the two-wheeler outside Bellbird... The journey would be a cut lunch job and the freeway scares me witless!!! But if you guys want a "factory picnic" at my place, that would be great. :-) I'd be very happy.
