Challenge cards and The Northern Retreat .

Once again the copics colour challenge has come around and this weeks colours are gorgeous !
Charmed Cards and crafts are sponsoring this weeks challenge and you have a chance of winning a download of your choice .

The stamp i have used is Stamps Happen , unicorn and maiden stamp , ive had it for years but never really used it ! The card was for a friend and craft club member so i couldnt post it till now. I used a martha stewart punch for the fern leaves and distressed the edges of the image card and ofcourse the image was coloured using copics .It was quite a tricky image to colour i have to say but im pleased with the finished result. Please check out the other gorgeous cards from the Dt team.

Just Magnolia and Friday Sketchers.

Ive combined this card with the Just magnolia challenge and the theme this week is Summer , with the sketch at the friday Sketchers challenge sketch.
I used butterfly tilda and coloured her in with copic ciao markers . I love doing gradient shading which you can see on her dress .Her dress in the photo looks quite orangey but in real life it does look more pinky at the top , im not sure why it isnt showing in the photo.

Fancy a retreat ??? well if you pop along to Jo's blog you will find the details of The Northern Retreat click here PLUS the chance to win some copic markers !!

Have a great weekend folks !
