I just adored this image when I first saw it!  It's just soooooo Cute!  I loved it so much because it reminded me of my son when he was very young and I just loved him so.  Cute and cuddly, loving, bliss.  Mind you I still adore him now - I remember his Father saying I wouldn't let the wind blow on him - to true - who would!!

For this image I used my copics and prisma pencils.  I edged the image with a fine liner pen.

I kepted the design clean and simple as I didn't feel there was a need for anything else.

Papers:   Patterned (Quitoxic Paperie), Plain (Crafters Companion)
Embellishments:   Ribbon and faux brads (QVC)

I like this image hope you do?
Best wishes,

This is a digi image from Kelly's Kids by Bonna called "Leo" hence the lion feel to the image.  I liked this image but didn't know how I was going to use it!  I tend to choose images that have nice faces a bit like when I buy ornaments (I'll only buy the ones with nice or detailed faces).

This was the first image I tried my new box of Prisma pencils on, not forgetting my copics.  I used a fine liner pen for the border.

Papers:  Patterned (Quitoxic Paperie), Plain (WHS)
Embellishments: Ribbon, heart, gems and letters.

I know this is an unusual image for Valentine but definitely one liked by the boys!

Thanks for looking,
Best wishes,

Saw this image popping up from time to time and liked it every time I saw it!  Got a couple of the kits (stamps) from QVC in the sale so decided to get the other two.  I think this one is the Summer Fairies.

As well as treating myself to Polychromos pencils (brilliant price on ebay for wooden box set of 120) love them.  Saw the Prisma pencils wooden box set on ebay and bid on those two.  Finished up winning both - LUCKY ME!  As I had the Polychromos wooden box set first I have been using them (I did buy a number of each of the pencils before placing my bids to see if I liked them!)  On this image I used the Prisma pencils with my copics.  I would say the difference
between the two sets is the Prisma pencils are softer leads.

I used a copics black fine liner for the border and white gouache for the highlights and spots on the girl's dress.

Papers:  Digi papers - patterned (think Creative Cottage?), Plain - Crafters Companion
Embellishments: Ribbon, faux paper brads (QVC),
Hope you like the spring colours for Valentine!
