Well, I don’t know if Spring is finally here to stay but we are all about the ‘Spring Shades’ over at Totally Gorjuss this week. The new Spring Basics collection from Maja Designs (available from Live and Love Crafts) is perfect for this theme and I had to buy pretty much every design in the collection as they were all just so beautiful!
I used several layers of pretty papers (I had so many to choose from!) all matted onto Kraft, then stitched and inked around the edges. Here you can see the layers and the little ribbon loop under the button;
I also decided to add to my collection of Saturated Canary images as I have loved these awesome digistamps by Krista for a long time but only have a couple. I thought Ava with her balloon was a great match for the spring papers and I have coloured her with my Copics – I think I am slowly getting the hang of them but still have lots to learn.
Our theme at Totally Gorjuss this week is ‘Happy’ and we have TWO lovely sponsors; The Ribbon Girl and Saturated Canary. It certainly made me very happy to get a free SC digi stamp to work with this week so thanks Krista 😀 I chose Cali Girl and some fresh yellow and blue DP to bring a little taste of the summer we will hopefully have this year!
So, why the post title? Well, I am on the edge of ProMarker cliff readying myself to jump off into the big wide Copic sea! I have been thinking about it for a while and my colouring of this image convinced me that I needed to try it so some Copics have been ordered; watch this space! Until then, here is the image coloured with ProMarkers/FlexMarkers;
