Day 5 of The Daily Marker Colouring Challenge

Hi all.
It’s day 5 of The Daily Marker colouring challenge.
I decided to colour these fish from Avery Elle
These always make me smile as they have mischievous looks about them.


I hope you’re loving the colouring like I am. My next mission is to put all of these images onto cards.



Day 4 of The Daily Marker Challenge

Hi all,
It’s day 4 of The Daily Marker colouring challenge.
I’ve had this image for a while but hadn’t coloured it. 
I couldn’t decide if the cat was grumpy because of the rain or because he is wearing a raincoat.
So I’ve finally coloured it and you can decide why he’s grumpy. 


I hope you’re enjoying seeing my colouring.


Day 3 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring

It’s such a cute stamp.

Day 2 of The Daily Marker 30 DayChallenge

This bear is a cutie.

Scrappers Delights Tutorial

Hi all,
Today I'm sharing with you a tutorial on how I made my card 

First I started with colouring the skin with copics.


Now it doesn't matter if I go outside of the lines as I will be cutting the image out.
Next I coloured the hair.


I then coloured in the goggles, flippers and trunks


I then cut the image out and put it to one side.
Now to start on the background.
I used Distress Oxides to make the background.
First I used brushes to brush the two colours over the card.


I then drip some water over the top to make it look like water.


I then cut the background out, stuck the boy where I wanted him 
and added some dots to give it some dimension.


I then stuck it to the base card and my card is finished.


This is quite a quick way to make a background.
You could use a circle stencil to make circled backgrounds and so on.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial
