Friday

I've been enjoying the process of colouring images...



Relax-and-enjoy-card 

Of late I've been enjoying the process of colouring images. It's really therapeutic and a way to do something creative without the need to pull out a million craft supplies [I'm sure you know what I mean...*winks*].   


The downside to it is that I've been staring at people in public places. A lot. Seeing how the light hits their skin and hair so that I can colour them better. *LOL* And watching lots of YouTube videos on colouring. 

Supplies: Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps image: Suitcase Ruby, Graphic 45 patterned papers, Ranger distress inks, Jenni Bowlin pearls, SRM stickers, Copics, brad, lace trim, corner rounder.


P/s: Relax and enjoy your weekend friends. If you have some creative time, come play along with my guest Hussena's challenge and LESSology Challenge #1: Fun with envelopes!

Nice work...love the paper piecing.

I've been trying to get the hang of copics and people coloring by forcing myself to use my copics...practice practice practice.

happy weekend!
