Hey

Morning!  The sun is shining in the UK albeit it being chilly still but I am stuck in the house because my cold won't shift!  Bleh.  Hopefully I will feel good enough to venture out of the house on the Bank Holiday tomorrow!

I am here today with my Bellarific Babe card using the sweet Arthur from the Tiddly Inks Annie and Arthur duo stamp set...


I coloured him in with Copics on kraft cardstock - I love this technique but it sure drinks the ink!!  I used October Afternoon Report Card papers and alpha stickers and finished off with a simple button - cos boys don't tend to like much else!

Okay, I gotta go now but I'll be back tomorrow with my There She Goes DT post!

Huh, I didn't know you could colour on kraft with Copics. (Not that it's relevant to me - the pencil-only user. ;-) )
