My Colouring Obsession.

Okay everyone knows I love my colouring in of stamped images and diggies stamps well here are the pictures of my pen collection.

Firstly my mini caddy from papermania has a full set of promarkers (with their end dots on) and 6x letraset metallic markers and several duplicates I have in my main used colours. In total 183 pens in that mini caddy plus a bag of promarker fine tips.

And also my collection of all the currently released flex markers - stored in 2x Letraset wallets.

I store all my pens flat but the mini caddy is upright only when I am using the pens. So there you have the main implements in my colouring obsession.

Two pastel Christmas Cards.

Am working on our own needed Christmas cards now my orders are done. I have 12x Christmas cards in my box of completed cards but still need another 18 to 20 cards for us to send out to friends and family.

Here are two pastel cards I have made this evening. Hope you like them folks as tried to make them a little unusual but simple.

The Angels wings are coloured with a clear sakura glitter pen and then I have added glossy accents to them and the stars in the head-dresses. I have used promarkers and flex-markers to colour the main images.

Busy Crafting.

Can't post any pictures of the cards I been making the last few days  as they are for an order of christmas cards for a friend. Well I love my hobby and it keeps me busy and sane with all my health issues. Crafting is my much needed stress reliever. Never coloured and stamped so many toppers before in one go.

Apologies and a few toppers.

Apologies for lack of blogging this last week but there have been a few problems and crafting got put on the back burner while things got sorted.

I thought I would upload some toppers I made now I am crafting again (not full cards) that I coloured in with my new promarkers. I have gone back to promarkers for one reason or another and am really pleased I did. They are right for me it seems.

Hope you like the toppers.

"Keep It Simple" Rocker card.

Have successfully made my first rocker card today. I have made it specifically for the 'Crafty Bloggers Network' challenge "Keep It Simple".

I used my new x-cut shape cutter system gift set (circles), some smooth white stamping card, memento ink, pinflair foto-glue, fizzy moon stamps, a black alcohol marker pen (to make the black card) and I also used my set of copic glitter pens to fill-in the few selective areas of colouring I have done.

Am rather chuffed by the results and the fact my first rocker card worked.
