Yes still here

Lots of stuff happening around here at the moment. Some good some bad but i know in the end it will all work out for the best….

But on the scrapping/cardmaking front i have been having lots of fun learning how to use my new Copic markers… i so cant wait till tomorrow night when i get to go and learn how to use them properly… but for now here is my attempt (first attempt LOL) at feather blending… Mad For Markers has a comp on at the moment using this technique so thought i would give it a go after watching a few tutorials on it. Ive have also used a gorgeous digital stamp from The Greeting Farm… im so in love with these images right now they are just too cute…found out they have a challenge blog also called Anya Ink so gave that a go too with this card by making my first ever easel card… very cute can see myself making lots more of these i think….and i also used the sketch from this weeks cardabilities sketch… love having lots of challenges to work with that are so much fun… make sure you go check them out they all have the most amazing dt girls who are very inspiring…

ok here is my card

Wow this is really cute! I have never seen this image before and you have coloured her really well, your blending looks really good. I have only just got my first copics too, they are lots of fun aren't they. I love the background paper that you have used here too.
Thanks for playing along with us at Anya Ink, hope to see you back next challenge xoxo

Gorgeous easel card! Great use of your copics too. If that's what you do before you've 'properly' learnt, I can't wait to see what comes after.
