Sent with love

As a kid I always preferred cuddly monkeys to teddy bears, still do if I'm honest but here is a cute little chap from My Favorite Things that I sent to my sweet husband for Valentine's Day!!


I opted for my favourite "no lines" technique, it gives a lovely soft appearance, quite apt for this adorable little bear.

COPIC COLOURS:
E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, W0, W1, W2, W3, W6, W8, YR30, E000, E00, E21, E51, R20

SUPPLIES:

Paper: from stash
Colouring Medium: Copic
Tools: Versafine Crimson Red, MFT Hydbrid ink - Natural, MFT Blueprint 29, White Gel pen

Short and sweet today, but I will be back with more soon and don't forget my next Artistic Expression feature on MFT Blog will be on 24 February.

Happy Colouring

A long time coming........

Oh goodness, way back in November I travelled across the pond to Arizona to go meet my good friend Jennifer Dove and attend her Copic Bootcamp.

I got to see the Grand Canyon, travel through two deserts and caught sight of my first ever Road Runner - although my attempts at photographing the darned thing were abysmal!

I started colouring this stamp (Southwest Mountain - CC Designs) soon after I returned, but things kept getting in the way and it's been hanging around in the studio waiting for me to find the time to finish it.

Ta da - I finally added the last touch of Copics to it on Sunday.  I adore the warm colours and it will forever remind me of my first trip to Jenn's part of the world..........hope you like it.
