Good morning all!
The weekend is almost upon us and as there is a great new challenge this month, i thought i would share with you a card or two for some inspiration for you to get out there and colour,Colour,COLOUR!!!
R's and RV's i find are not the easiest to colour with. I find they bleed a lot and if you do not get the shading right they are not very forgiving.
I have always found though if you treat them a little different than your other colours especially the R's you can get some great results. I always try to not flood the page, i always use smaller flicks when using the R's and with that i do not get as much bleeding and they blend better.
The first card i have made today is with a Spech Digital image his name is Draggy, and boy he is SO cute! He reminded me of the Welsh Dragon that my daughter has,so i just had to colour him in red!
Supplies;Spech designer digi stamp-draggy, Copic markers-R22,24,27,29,30,32,35,Y00,08,15,26,28,38 and 0,
Bo Bunny papers-Crush, Paper smooches stamps-sentiment sampler, Fiskars interchangeable border punch starter set, Bella! glitter card stock, bling.
I think this card would be perfect for a special someone!
My second card i tried using the darker R's and RV's. This card was going to be special for me as i made it for my parents 40th wedding anniversary.
Supplies; The greeting Farm digi image-cake topper kiss, Basic Grey papers, Copic markers- R20,59,83,85, E00,11,33,35,42,43,47,50,57,Y28,YG45,C3,5,7, 100 and 0,, spellbinders die-lacy squares,and ribbon.
I hope i have given you a little inspiration to enter the current challenge!

And if you need a stamp to colour or a couple of Copic markers/refills do not forget that the Mad 4 Markers online shop has a great variety of stamps and markers for you to choose from.
