Octavia Moonfly....

Hi there everyone.... I am back again with another PolkaDoodles Image from there gorgeous Octavia Moonfly range..

I have had some many lovely comments over in the facebook group on my biro colouring.... I will try and put together a tutorial on how I do it... I am still learning this technique so I'm no expert...

 When I set off colouring this I initially had a turquoise colour in mind but ended up a bit more tinkerbell....

 there is a bit of sparkle on the wings but the camera didn't pick it up to well..
So this is my latest ballpoint pen colouring... I will work on a tutorial to share my version of how I do it.. Happy colouring
Thank you for stopping by

Make it Crafty - Love Story Release

Hi there everyone... TodayI would like to share with you one of the images from

 Make It Crafty's - Love Story
I have used Penny In Love

 This image is so pretty.... I have printed on to some pearlescent paper and coloured her with sketch pencils. I used my craft knife on the edges for the shabby feel and then just used my pencils again to slightly age it.

I have also used the brand new super gorgeous chippies which Zoe has designed...These are amazing  and  can be used on a number of products.
Check out Zoe's Store and the gallery for some fantastic Inspiration.

I will be back soon with my DT inspiration project for the new challenge :)
Hugs for now
