The papers are from the digi set Oh So Shabby from Raspberry Rd, printed onto linen card and lightly inked around the edges with antique linen distress ink. I've had my eye on Raspberry Rd papers for a while, but I couldn't work out whether it was ok to sell the cards I made with them - finally got round to sending them an email at the weekend and had a speedy reply back saying individual handmade items are fine to sell... so I downloaded quite a few different ones, they're all so pretty!
I've coloured Misty with Prisma pencils, although I used flexmarkers for the sky. I've made a terrible job of the colouring really, but I've got yet another rotten cold and I wasn't really in the mood. So sick of the constant colds, I'd only just got rid of one!
I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
- Papertake Weekly - one for the girls, or mum
- Digital Tuesday - think spring
- Simon Says Stamp - Mother's Day/ special girl
A few of you have asked how I do my clouds... now there's next to no chance of me doing a tutorial, but this tutorial is where I started, although it's actually for copics, so I adapted it first for promarkers and then for flexmarkers. It's all quite random so mine ends up looking very different to the original, but it's a fab tutorial so a great starting point if you fancy having a go yourself. If it helps, the flexmarkers I use are 'glacier blue', 'cloud blue' and 'blue grey 2' and I go over the whole thing with the blender pen.
Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)
