The daily ramblings of a disorganised crafter and a sometimes cakey-bready-baker ....

Oh little bear... little bear....

Morning folks...

Well, it's a very wet, miserable and grey day here in Doncaster again. Perfect day to get stuck in to making more samples for my upcoming shows on Create and Craft I think.. then I can sit and relax this evening. Great idea me thinks...

Today, I have something a little different to show... I have made a Christmas card to fit in with the challenge over at the Promarker Challenge blog. I just loves my alcohol markers, so it was great fun to get them out to play.

Here's my card.


Sorry for the quality of the picture - I must really get my camera back out and stop being so lazy, taking pictures on my phone... the quality really isn't that great!

Anyway.. I've coloured onto the wonderful Papermania Kraft card, love this stuff... and I've coloured with the promarkers. I did add a little black shadow with pencils. I've noticed the oval looks really squint on this photo, in fact it is rather oval-ly and fits the frame really well!


Here's a little close up of the colouring.

I'll be back tomorrow with a really cute little commissioned card... hope you check back soon!
