First colouring in mono


I have wanted to try colouring an image using just grey Copics and when Faye challenged us in the Copic group on FB it made me determined to give it a go. I have lots of these lovely little Gorjuss Girls stamps which come with such pretty packaging. I thought a small image would be a good starting point and apart from the hair I am quite pleased with the result. The wavy hair threw me a bit so I will try another image next time. I used Go Kreate frilly squares 10 die for the card base and MME touch of chalk paper. The image was cut with a MFT wonky stitched rectangle die and the umbrella is a Memory Box die. I wanted to keep it simple just adding some blue enamel dots for a splash of subtle colour.

Off to see my Mum this morning, coffee, looking round a few shops and lunch before coming home. Hubby is on a first aid training course this evening for his volunteer rescue boating so a crafty evening for me.
