It's A Skunk!

Whoops an hour or so late with my post this morning, blame Nico! I got up, fed him, cleaned him out then he decided he wanted to play so I thought why not, but only for a bit....a bit turned into nearly two hours oops! Anyhoos here's todays post....

My Time To Craft have a new challenge starting today with a great theme

TAG IT!

all on its own, not attached to anything, just a tag!

I had great fun with this challenge, decided I need a tag & card to match to give to the vets who neutered Nico, just to say thank you. 
Well could I find a skunk image I liked, nah looked everywhere! Then Danni said why not try Deviant Art. (some awesome artists on here & most of them let you use their work for free, they just want a mention!)...so I did & I found this cutie. Loved colouring her in & making up my card & tag.



And my card to match. The tag will be going on one of those round tubs of Heroes!


Just love this cutie!

Check the Chickas!

Today sees the start of a new 'anything goes' challenge over at The Stamping Chef. 
I decided as it was October & it's breast awareness month I would use one of Tamara's fab breast awareness images for my card.

Also this is my first image coloured with Promarkers/Flexmarkers & my new Spectrum Noir pencils & I just love the end result. I know I need to practice (play) more but I do love her hair!


Even using just pencils, I've never been able to get my shading how I like it on hair. But after doing this image I think I'll be using markers & pencils from now on!
