Tilda's getting cuddles



Hello my dears,  I've not blogged for a few days now!!  I'll tell you why shall I ??

Last week I invested in 48 copic markers, they came on Monday and I've been beavering away trying them all out and this is my first finished image using nothing but copics.  I know I've got a long way to go i.e. shading etc, but I'm quite pleased with the effect.  I love colouring and have used lots of different medium but I must say I've fallen in love with these pens.  Don't think my Bank Manager is going to like me very much as I build up my collection !!!!!!!!

Anyway.  I made this card for a few challenges although I've never used these colours together I think they work so well.  So without further ado I'd like to enter:

Magnolia Down Under Challenge:  The theme this week is a fabulous colour combo of Orange/Pink/White.

Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge:  I know I'm cutting it a bit neat with my entry but I haven't missed one yet, the theme is Spring is just around the corner.

Simon Says Stamps Challenge:  Have an Anything Goes this week.

I would like to say a big Hello to my new followers,  thank you so much for taking the time to visit and for leaving such wonderful comments.  You have no idea how much they mean to me.

Hugs

It's a long way from Australia to Scotland, Suzi, but this dear little Tilda looks like she's really enjoying the trip. You're doing a beautiful job with your Copics. Hope you have lots of fun with them.

Nice and bright colored Tilda card Suzi. The tree and fence are very cute accents to add on this card. It's so coincident that I colored the same Tilda and did a card using bright colors too. But mine won't be posted until next week though :o)
