Happy Easter!?!?!?!?!

 Hi Everyone and Happy Easter if you Celebrate today. I made a Christmas Card last night as I really need to get cracking with them (Thought it would be an Eggcelent Idea!!) So after a scramble about I managed to get this one done (sorry about the eggy yokes jokes I cant help it, Chocolate overload!!!) 
 My Christmas Fairy has been sitting on the Craft Desk so she wanted in the piccy, She is called Hiccup and the Wee Elf beside her is her Brother Atichoo. Shes called Hiccup as she always falls off the tree and Im sure its cause she has the hiccups! :0)

More funtime...

Hi Everyone.

Well today has been a very sleepless one!!! I stayed up to as the kids were coming home at 2 this am. Then I had to catch up with all their tales of Madeira. I ended up in bed at 3 but got up again just before 6 as wanted to see if I could see the Eclipse. (Sadly I didn't) Then was back up at 9am so Im shattered and off to bed very soon!! 
 A few weeks back Alyce at Kit and Clowder did a fabby tutorial on colouring this image in. I missed it but bought the image since it was Tiddly Inks (Farie Fae Catches a Star) and last night coloured her in wth almost the same colours that were used. Im sure Ive not done it as well. I really should be more organised as the Tuts only stay up for a fortnight!! Oops Mys bad!!!

Play Time....

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all having a great weekend. I have been busy playing today. Its been lovely just to muck about with my pens. I have followed the Lovely Alyce over at Kit and Clowders Free Colouring Tutorial she did last night with this ever so cute Saturated Canary Image called Pixie Nerd. 
Now I didnt use all the same pens as Alyce as I dont have a huge amount of copics. (I only have the skintones) so this was done using my promarkers and Spectrum noirs to get the colours similar to the Copics she suggested. Mind you I kinda added a bit of glitter to her wings!!( I am an addict!!!). I used my cotman watercolour paints to do the background at the top and again the pros for the base.
