Morning - It's a gorgeous day here. Well it looks like it is - haven't been outside yet and it's probably freezing but the sun has made me think of summer.

I've been playing around with trying to colour in our stamps with the fewest possible colours - but so they still look pretty. I've tried our stamp Rosie Posy using only 3 Promarker colours - Buttercup for her hair and dress, Baby Pink for her cheeks, bows, socks and flowers and Blush for her skin. I suppose it's a bit of a cheat as I also used the Blender pen to blend the Buttercup on her clothes and hair.

I think she looks very sunny and spring like and she's put me in a better mood.

Don't ask about the papers - crashed the system - can't find them on the PC - so their appearence may not be for a while yet!!

  10. Gorgeous!! I'm feeling very inspired by this and your fairy tutorials ..... I have just started collecting Promarkers and have just bought my first 15 so my colouring options are still v limited - I have quite a lot of PB animal stamps which I think may be difficult to colour with Promarkers, but i have started building up my collection of LotV recently and I can really see the potential for colouring some of these images without too many pens ( I have the fairy) so can't wait to get going.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
