Hello, my dearios! I hope you're all keeping well!

I have been practising with my Promarkers recently! I belong to a facebook group, Donna-Marie's Cards and Promarker tutorials and Donna has produced an e-book on colouring. It's with the permission of letraset, of course. All money raised will go to a homeless charity. Her tutorials are very detailed, and well worth £12!

Here is Bubbles who I coloured along with one of the tutorials.

I am so much happier with my colouring, it's much smoother and more defined!

I edged the image with a Fiskar's Scallop Sentiment punch. The black paper for my mat was dull, so I livened it up with some clear embossing, using a background stamp by Impression Obsession called Circle Fusion 2 CR002. I think I ordered it from Simon Says Stamp. The background paper is from a Christmas pad by Dovecraft called 'Noel.' I added glitter to the star, bubbles, and the dots on her dress.

The sentiment and heart are from a Hero Arts stamp set, 'Year Round Sentiments.' The black ribbon and clear gems are from stash. I used glitter card to cut a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis square and cut it up to put behind the image.

The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches and I've turned it 180 degrees, it was just right for what I wanted to do!

Ok, time to stagger downstairs and see how the curry is doing!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
