LOTV Colouring day

Hi guys,

How are you all this windy Sunday? I am good, bump is growing nicely. No card to show you today however as some of you know I attended the LOTV colouring day yesterday along with some other wonderful ladies. It was a fantastic day out, I really enjoyed myself. So I just thought I should give you a little sneak as to what we all got up to:

So we started off by colouring in James the Bear. The colours that we used and the technique were so different to what I would normally do. As always I stuck to Promarkers. Although the class was designed for Copic and Promarker users. I finished him off with some gorgeous stickles. Can't wait to create a Christmas card with him. He was so easy to colour.

Secondly we coloured the boy with Sail. Aren't we all scared of using Reds? Well now that I have a few more reds in my collection, this was so easy to do also. Can you see where the bleeding came in lol. Ooopss. Normally I would have left the sail white or added grey but perhaps coloured the whole sail however look what we did, coloured using brownish shades and only a tiny bit then in came the blender-how cool does that look?

Next was one of my favourite LOTV stamps-Love Grows. Aren't these just darling? Such a versatile stamp. Ok this was a little time consuming to colour but I just love how it came out, I compared it to the one I did a few weeks ago and boy this is so much better. Again I added some stickles.

Finally we had Rosy Posy to colour. I kinda rushed this one as time was running out but again I love the effect. To all the images we added some pencil shading using Prisma pencils, I have never done this before but boy I so will do so now. It just makes the image pop off the paper. Also I learnt I am rather heavy handed with my Promarkers so I need to watch that as this causes bleeding and obviously wastage of ink. Also I learnt the card LOTV sell (super smooth) is actually super, I am sure to move over to this.

So you must be thinking what about the shopping lol. So look what else I got lol, come on I couldn't not hey. I don't think I got carried away at all. Can't wait to make lots of LOTV cards now lol. Right I better go as hubby has just come back home and is starving and the dog won't stop barking lol.

Have a lovely Sunday xxx
