Up, Up and Away!

Here is a simple card with a detailed image
a combination that I love!

Apart from the central image, everything else is drawn by hand and I think it sets the scene for this adorable young pilot and his passenger.

Easter Eggs.......yum!

Unfortunately for me, lingual braces will put pay to eating chocolate eggs for the next 2 years ........choccie buttons are about all I can manage (and one of those took a bracket off - oops)

Ho, hum, at least I can still colour........well when the old gnashers aren't aching too much.......for all you teens out there with a face full of metal like me........you have my sympathies!!!

Anyway, enough whining Jane, show off your newest colouring....
..... a Copic, pencil combo..... and it's pink, yeay!!

Although this is quite a simple layout the colouring was not - the background is predominantly Copic, Emma, however has had a lot of pencil enhancement.

Enhanced with Caran D'Ache Pablo, Supracolor II & Luminance pencils

What do you think of the daisies?  They were so easy to do........and went well with the flower in Emma's hair.
I used my water-soluble Caran D'Ache Supracolor II white pencil, wet the lead to get it soft and then created daisies using dots and once dry I was able to add a little yellow centre. The odd stalk drawn in pencil was added too.

Now this has been created to inspire you and get you to join in with the latest challenge over at
