Markers practise

Hello, here I go again with another Sat Canary image called Roses are Red Violets are Blue!  A long name for a cool image.  Another red head but different colours this time.  Im on to trying blonde now so watch this space lol!

I really need to start some cards, and give the markers a rest.  Not doing any Christmas cards this year as we will be away on the 17th December.  Im looking forward to sitting back and someone else can worry about food and decorations etc.  Wahoo - bring it on.
Thanks for visiting, Cheers Denise

New Look Blog

Im really pleased with my new look blog, many thanks to Sharon of Plumroselane, love her work :-)

Im still hard at it,  practising with my markers, Ive a couple of images that Ive finished but havent as yet been made into cards.  The first one is a saturated canary image that Ive been busy with trying to get a shiney look to the hair.

Hair is so difficult to get right, along with folds and pleats etc in clothing.  The next one is me learning how to colour folds with a soft colouring technique.  Its a stunning image,
I absolutely love it, but not quite sure if I like the folds or not.

The next one is an image that Ive entered into a halloween challenge, using  the colours or shades of purple, black, and orange, but not on a halloween image.  Another cutie coloured but not yet on a card.

Ive coloured the background in several different shades of gray (ha ha not 50)!  Ive used frantage in shabby white and gold around the edges.  Looks better in the flesh than in this photo.  I really need to get making some more cards, but just run out of me time now that spring is here.  The weeds start growing, and the veges need planted. Off to do more colouring, and keep my eye on the tv as well.  Hugs Denise
