For a Loved One # Creative Card Crew

Good Morning,  it's a cold but sunny morning here hope you're all tickety boo!!!

Tuesday means another fun challenge from Creative Card Crew.

This week we want you to create something....


Our sponsor for this week is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps 

This little girl from our sponsor is called Lucy she's a Valentine's girl but i've used her for a Mother's Day Theme.
I thought I would get some Polychromos pencils to try, which i've used along with Copics, to deepen some of the shadows. These are wax base pencils and, as with any new technique it takes practice to get to know how they work.
I've been thinking lately that I want to spend more time practicing with different colouring mediums.
The Prisma pencils are another one I want to try. If anyone has any tips on the difference between the the two pencils i'd love to hear them.

When I attend workshops at Whichcraftuk we sometimes colour with distress inks and I get really frustrated because i'm pants with them so they are on my to-do-list!!!

Some great workshops this month and a demo day on the 26th hope to see you there!!

There's not much I can say about my card as the papers are out of the scrap pile so not sure where they're from, just thought they went together ok.
I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday Challenge

There's lots of love in blog land... some challenges to share it with:
