It's orange...

Good morning my fellow the storms have calmed down, it's now white outside!! I will be glad when this winter is over, perhaps that means we will have a good summer... Well I have been doodling away colouring with my new polychromos, and I think they do take a bit of practising. I haven't quite mastered the blending to get the same effect you get with copics or promarkers but I am not giving up as I really like them!

So, I have used Peek a Boo birthday from Sugar Nellie and coloured her with my new polychromos as I said, the papers are scraps that I have left from Echo Park - Country Drive, I must order more as I really like these papers. I also added some stitching and distressed the edges of the layers to cove up my wonky cutting...think I pulled that one off!!

Will be back shortly with Pippi!!

Fabulous card and I loooove all that stitching. My Christmas goodies included a small sewing machine so you have inspired me - to get it out of the box. Ta for that!

I love this stamp and I can see that you're really starting to get to grips with the polychromos! I've coloured 3 images so far with mine, but not yet made into cards. Hope you're doing well. Susie x
