Colouring a winter wonderland

I’ve been working with Copic markers for more than four years and the vast majority of that has involved colouring stamped or printed images. There have been a few times when I’ve hand-drawn pictures and coloured those, but that’s still working within the lines, just lines that I’ve made and that aren’t as solid as… Continue reading Colouring a winter wonderland

The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 1–5

Well, five days in and I haven't given up yet 🙂 And I've completed one card and done the colouring for another so that's definite progress on the Christmas card list. I say that like I actually have a final finished list of cards I have to make, whereas, in practice, I actually have a… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 1–5
