Spotlight embossed flowers

Inspired by Seven Hills Craft's September challenge, I thought I would have a go at spotlighting not only the colour but also the embossed outlines. Technically, this turned out pretty much how I hoped it would. If only I had remembered to keep my hand out of the still-damp marker, which meant I had to… Continue reading Spotlight embossed flowers

The Daily Marker challenge 11-15

Another five days of colouring. As well as using my Copics again — and even doing another lesson in the Autumn Scenes mini course — I also did my first bit of coloured pencil work in a long time and even got out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. https://www.instagram.com/p/BY6Js3AgEV-/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BY8xVwAAflZ/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BY_Itjng3dS https://www.instagram.com/p/BZBp1bygnl0/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BZEhe2UA2r_/

Happy mail: Snails

Create A Smile have just launched their monthly challenge and, being a lover of their stamps (and stencils and embellishments and kits and…), I just had to join in. The theme this month is “favourite” so for this card I went with my favourite colouring medium: Copic markers (though I do love the cute snails… Continue reading Happy mail: Snails

Birthday: Butterflies and flowers

Another catch-up post; this card was originally made on February 1st on the first day of the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. I couldn't share it then though, as the person it was made for also follows me on Instagram, so I restricted myself to posting the circle that was die cut from the… Continue reading Birthday: Butterflies and flowers
