January colouring class

just thought I would share my image from the January marker class by kit and clowder.
I haven't used the image from the class but chosen to use one of my lilies (retired).
I've really surprised myself with my efforts even though I didn't have any rubbing alcohol I've used my blender in the sky colours.
and here it is.



at some point this will be framed and displayed in my craft room.
all it leaves me to say now is: have a lovely day, enjoy and craft happy. Ann

Merry Christmas santa claus is coming to town

good morning everyone.
i'm back today with my 2nd dc card share in conjunction with Lili of the valley's facebook challenge in between all the sneaky peeks of the next lotv release from the team.
back to my share.
i have to say crafters i am over the moon on how this project has turned out. to create my background i have joined in with this months marker colouring class over at kit and clowder and as always i have learned loads and i have topped my project off with one of my Lili of the valley christmas stamps: snowy presents (retired as a stamp). this project has all been coloured with my copic markers.

here is my card who hooo.


i have an admission one of my markers blobbed badly on one of the trees, but on the plus side my image has been fussy cut and has hid the blob really well.





onto what i have used:

7x7"" white base card
stamps: lili of the valley's: Snowy presents (may be available as a digi soon)
sentiment stamps
papers & card: from my stash
ink: memento espresso truffle
sakura gelly roll pens 

copics:
skin: e000: 00: 04: 11: 21:
outfits: b99: 97: 95
