A combo ... and Copics

Woohoo, I actually coloured an image with my Copics (the 3rd one in all this time) and to be honest it was a lot easier than I remembered lol. Okay I still need a lot of work with the shading but feel as though I am getting there ... very slowly. I am determined to master them, and to stop being so afraid of them.sarah-kay-how-sweet1 
I have done this card using the Friday Sketchers challenge and have used the colours for the Roses on Paper challenge (okay the brown is stretching it a bit, but her hair is brown lol). I've used .... again .... the MME Bloom & Grow papers (really love these if you haven't guessed).sarah-kay-how-sweet-3

Recipe:
Stamp: Sarah Kay How sweet you are, sentiment from Whiff of Joy
Papers: MME Bloom & Grow
Tools: Martha Stewart Frond punch, circular nestibilities, retro flower punch, SU 5 petal flower punch, SU word window punch
Embellies: Pearls, pearl brad, spacer and charm all from The Hobby House

Thanks for stopping by,

  59. HI

    I don't know if you will be able to help me. I bought some new stamps, they are sugar nellie.

    I thought that they came with the wooden block for them to go on or that they stuck onto a perspex stamp block. They didn't, do you know what I should buy to use them?

    Thanks

  90. Thanks for the lovely comments Bev on my card, I'm really honoured that someone of your standard thought so highly of my card. A little tip that I have found while using my copics, if you want the colour to go lighter, trying using coloured pencils onto of the darker colour, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Give it a go and tell me what you think. Karen

    PS I'm loving the puppies, they are sooooo cute xoxo
