Every month the IG Crafty Crew sets one easy and one hard just-for-fun challenge over on Instagram. I normally forget to join in, but I had no excuse for February as I was already doing the 30-day colouring challenge and this month’s easy challenge was to use the Copic colour of the month ā€” ultraviolet. But this post is not about that image (which hasn’t made it onto a card yet). This post is about the card I created after being asked to provide the inspiration and theme for the March easy challenge.

The Daily Marker challenge 21-25

The Daily Marker challenge 11-15

Another five days and we’re halfway through the challenge. As well as minimising the stack of digis, I decided to use this as an opportunity to stretch myself a bit. I really enjoy colouring with my Copic markers and simple colouring can be a nice relaxing way to pass the time, but I do want to keep trying different techniques and subjects as well. So, along with colouring some cute critters, I also practised blending reds and took on a digi with so much hair it took me two days to finish.
