Something new....

well for me anyway!

Good morning blogworld

Well here goes - deep breath and show.

This is my first card where the image is coloured completely with Copics (apart from the sky which is with chalks (I doubt I will ever be brave enough to try properly colouring a sky!)).

I don't mind at all if you want to tell me where I've gone wrong - as long as it doesn't get too insulting!! Otherwise I'd have to send one of the moggies round to lick you to death ;-)

Front shot:

Her Close Up:
I used:

Digi Stamp:
Time for Tea - Sitting girl with birdie
coloured with Copics!!!

CC Designs - Teardrop border
Whimsy Stamps - fence

My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found; Blush

I won't tell you all the things I think are wrong with it or that I think the fence was a mistake - instead I'll just let you make up your own minds.

I've sung.


A challenge, or two:

In the Pink Challenge: Challenge #36 - Diecuts and Punches (just diecuts for me - hope that's OK?)

Without Words: Spots and/or stripes - Just spots for me

Now, here's the thing, I don't get along with Copics at all, whereas you have nailed it!! The hair is fab, the grass is amazing and the shading is spot should give yourself a huge pat on the back!! xx

I can't see anything wrong here, Sarah? Your colours blended well and the shadings look right. I especially love the way you coloured the grass. Well done! ^_^

I can't see a thing wrong Sarah, in fact I think you've created a mini masterpiece! Cute little gal and I love that sky!

Gorgeous sweet card and I think you're spot on with the colouring.

Kim said...

fantastic job with it Sarah - are you finding the copics easy to colour with? I must admit that I love the brush nibs and they do blend so well.

This is a fab card Sarah. I love the clouds x

Christine L said...

Hi Sarah

Me again.... the stitched squares you asked about are not available in the UK I'm afraid... they're from Li'l Inkers...

They do rectangles and circles too..

Their postage isn't too high and their service is good... but if you order over £15 worth, it gets stopped at customs in the UK... and you get charged VAT on whatever over £15 it is.. and then the post office have the cheek to charge £8 for taking the money off you! LOL!

This is something similar though - although it's dots along the edges, rather than similar to stitching..
but it IS available in the UK!

Big hugs
Christine x
