Off to Port Sunny

Evening all!!  Its that time of year again woo hoo!  Port Sunny in the morning :D  You'll find me on The Stampman stall with Ian and Jill who will be demonstrating the Fran-Tage technique, if you've not seen it as I havent either then pop along and come see!  Look forward to seeing all the familiar faces there again :)

Got a couple to share with you tonight.  First up is the gorgeous Lady Liberty from Crafts & Me coloured with promarkers.  She turned out lovely so I wanted to make the image the focus and keep the embellishment minumum.  I coloured her one evening a couple of weeks ago and popped her in my to do box, I usually have a few in there as I like to just colour in the evenings.  Thats now been made a whole lot easier as I just bought this fantastic tray which has a beanbag bottom and a light built in so I can pop it on my knee whilst drooling over the mentalist and continue my promarker addiction :D

I've also started adding ebay links to cards I sell as generally I wouldnt on here but have realised that 95% of my customers are actually crafters, some like to buy as example pieces as even I've done that before.  Our Molly colours me things in and says I can sell them for our holiday haha bless her!
So if you're interested the link below whats available will take you there :)

Next up is a lovely little stamp by Tiddlyinks which got a few ooohs and ahhhs at the vicky stampers workshop I did last week as I took a few sample pieces along.  She was lovely to colour in too and I used all the cool greys and a teensy bit of black with a fine nib on for the hair.
I've used coredinations black magic and papers from my scrummy new stack by first edition called dreamcatcher.  I did the ribbon and flowers a bit crumply to fit in with the feel of the card  :)

Anyway toodle pip, going to colour in bed whilst learing at the mentalist haha! x
