I am surprised that the weather is still good ,I enjoyed my picnic on Sunday , we had a lovely day out, and made the most of a nice weekend, I made far too much food so leftovers where Monday's lunch for work. It has been hot, not that I'm complaining but it is a bit to muggy for me! especially the last 24 hours, I'm finding sleeping very difficult...it will probably rain now that I've moaned about it !
I'm still in my pink phase as you can see.I had planned to use this card for a sketch challenge and now realise that I missed the challenge...it happens a lot I have an idea and then miss the boat as I lose track of time or I dont get the opportunity to make the card in time, but I liked the layout so have still used it.I haven't coloured Tilda in a while and liked the cute teddy bear so gave it a go. I was going to go pale and pastel but I thought it wouldn't have worked with my paper choices so I went for bold and bright's instead.This is the first time I have used pencils with my promarkers. I recently bought some Prisma pencils to try them out.I blended with the pencils, although I'm not sure I did it right...I watched some Youtube videos and tutorials but it didn't work out how I expected it too, not sure why? ...I think I should not have done any shading with my promarkers and used the pencils for all shading, it doesn't look much different, but I will try again as I love the look when others do it. I only have a small pack of 12 pencils so maybe its the colours I used? anyway I will watch more tutorials and have another go soon.I used my new flower punch to decorate the inside, I like how it embosses also, although this hasn't shown up well in the photos (ideally I would have liked to use a cupcake punch or embellishment but I didn't have another one).
I'm off work today so might get another card done if not I will be back at the weekend with another update, although I'm off to the Great British Craft Festival at Donnington with my daughter so might not get any card making done this weekend but will have had a great day out and hopefully a little retail therapy...I cant wait.
