Whiff of Joy Challenge

Hi everyone, a card for Whiff of Joy where the challenge is to follow a great sketch by Heather. I've used the lovely Oakley with scooter image and coloured with markers. Layers are plain black card, Karen Foster checquered flag paper and canford blue card. I've used the corner rounder punch and done some piercing and doodling for a bit of decoration. Added three black pearls to finish. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris

Beautiful card Chris, perfect for a boy and I love the colour combinations. The white doodling really finishes it off. One question, are Promarkers similar to Copics?

Hi Chris I love your card, perfect for a male card. Your colouring looks fantastic. I got a new computer and I have been sorting that this week so I've had no time to craft. I'm also going Christmas shopping to York for the weekend I can't wait! I hope all is well with you.
Hugs Lynsey :)

Gillian said...

Thanks for the info Chris about the promarkers. I do have a set of copics but don't like using them to colour large areas. I seem to mess it up, I will just have to keep practicing.
