New Challenge at Mad For Markers


Thanks for stopping by, it's always nice to have you drop in.

Thanks to those of you who emailed to ask after my little guy and his tests.  He was such little trooper. It's the first time he has had a blood test and being on the Autistic spectrum it was never going to be easy but he held up well. All I can say, is how did Mothers ever cope before the days of IPODs??? I'd like to think it was my soothing words and loving cuddles that got him through but truth be told I think it was good old Sponge Bob Square Pants!! lol :-P.

With the ENT visit, the blood test and working three days a week now I haven't had a lot of crafting time. That seems to be the case most weeks now sadly. But I have managed to create a card this week to share with you.

I have used Mo Mannings sweet image "End Of Summer"

I'm not sure why my photos end up so blurry but if you click on it is much clearer.

I have used the following Copics to colour this image and the flowers.

Skin - E00, E000, E11 and R20
Hair - E25, E27, E29 and E53
Flowers and Shirt - R81, R83 and R85
Jeans - B91, B93, B95 and B97
Blue Shading - B00

Speaking of Copics, there is a new challenge over at Mad For Markers that you should check out.

My teamie, Melissa, has come up with a fabulous tag sketch this fortnight and it is up to you how you use it, you might want to make a tag, incorporate the tag on to a card or maybe make a tag shaped card, it's up to you.

For all your Copic and related supplies head on over to Mad For Markers online store.

Mad For Markers post to Australia and New Zealand and stock a large range of Copic Markers, Blending Card, Masking Paper etc.
You can also check out the store blog and challenge blog for tips, tutorials and inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by

Michelle :-)
