Ta Da ...
As promised, here is the card that DS1 made using an image which he coloured with Promarkers (for the very first time).
I printed these images and DP's out a while ago, ready for when I started my Christmas card making, but I never got round to starting because I had/have the wedding stationery to do for my friends wedding... which is only 3 weeks away today (OMG).
DS1 and I had a little colouring session to kick start my Christmas card making on Sunday - it was cold, snow on the ground and nothing else to do - so he agreed to craft with me (gosh).
This card is for my niece and is made with an image called 'Christmas Princess' - drawn by the very talented Christy Croll, owner of Tiddly Inks. You will find the Tiddly Inks store HERE, where you are sure to find something just for you. They are whimsical, quirky digi stamps - and for some of them, there are design papers (DP) available too.
I have another Christmas image from Tiddly Inks which will appear on my blog soon - in the meantime - check out Tiddly Inks blog, where the DT has done an amazing job in this weeks challenge. It showcases just what can be done with these delicious images.
What do you think of DS' first attempt with the Promarkers. He's quite chuffed with himself and is currently sat watching Dawn Bibby with me (not really - he doesn't have much choice). He's been talking to the TV when she was 'selling' sets of promarkers - telling her there is nothing she can tell him that he doesn;t already know about using them... i'm sure that's testiment to his mum (that would be me) that he's been shading and doing the hair...
Not too bad for a first attempt. I think I could get him to have another colouring session.
Here are the details of the card:
