I decided after making my way through the ironing that I would put a couple of cards together. The images I coloured during the week. My first card covers two challenges - the sketch is this week's Friday Sketchers and the Passion for Promarkers challenge was "books". The gorgeous image is Harvard by the uber talented Mo Manning. I have coloured him with my Promarkers and have tried some new colours and techniques for the skin tone following some tuts on the Passion for Promarkers blog. I wasn't too sure about it- what do you think? The papers are Basic Grey Lime Rickey. My eldest son wants this card for his teacher at the end of term, which is only a few weeks away in Scotland.
The second card is for Karen's Doodles challenge which is "distressed" this week. I have used "Tea with Grandma" and coloured the image with Promarkers before blending in some Distress Inks in Antique Linen and Tumbled Glass. All edges were distressed with my TH distressing tool and inked with a brown chalk ink pad.The paper flower was made with my medium Retro punch and the rose was distressed with the chalk ink as well.The papers are from a mixture of pads.
I hope you like my efforts and thank you for visiting. All comments are much appreciated.
