Sharing a couple of cuties today.

Hi all.  Popping in today to share two recent copic colourings.  Both of the shares today were freebies from two of the many sponsors of the Kit and Clowder 10,000 party.  

Up first is Fairy Swing from All Dressed Up Stamps.  Isn't she sweet?

This next coloured digi is from East Wind Digi Stamps.  Super Chunky was a bit of a challenge for me.  Like I know how to colour a cat! 

Well .. on came the big girl panties and out came the Copics!  Yes there is room for improvement but one has to start to improve!! Right!

Colouring Crystals

Hi everyone!  It has been forever since I last posted.  Summer days find me hanging outside more and inside colouring less.  As most of you know I am a huge fan of Kit & Clowder and have been taking the online monthly class since ...well, forever.  The beauty of these classes are you end up with a finished project/image and you can do them whenever, no time limit!  

Today I am sharing my progress with the July class using the beautiful digi Crystal by Lineartsy .  First impression seeing this image so beautifully coloured by Alyce ... you got to be kidding!!  I am never going to be able to do that!  

I purchased, sized and printed Crystal, printed out the class, organized my copics then proceeded to find every excuse not to sit down and start colouring!  Maybe I will just read some of the class instructions, after all I wanted to know how to colour crystals. 

That was all it took!  Following Alyce's instructions and working in sections ... Hey, I can do a section ... helped me to finish this beautiful image.
