All in Blue

Hi Everyone,

I have been dying for ages to colour up a Saturated Canary image by the fabulous Krista Smith and what a beauty this one is. So I took the opportunity to combine my DT card for Copic Marker Europe and Make It Crafty together.  I remember a long time ago, when I was a Simply Sassy Girl, writing on Krista's blog that I'd love to see more images with long flowing hair, and this little lady certainly fits the bill.  She came in the E-Book from Make It Crafty which the awesome Zoe has put together to show you how to achieve those defined strands of hair, definitely worth Copic enthusiasts investing in and a must have for practicing hair, and to be honest the best advice I can give anyone who is new to copics is, practice, practice and practice.

And here's my finished card. 

I also have a new camera, yayyyyyy.  I'm still practicing with that too, so any tips will be greatly welcomed.

Image by Saturated Canary available in an E-Book from Make It Crafty

Leaves, flourish corner and mini butterfly chipboard embellishments by Make It Crafty and coloured with prisma pencils
