Hey Everyone

A great big "HELLO" to my new follower - Liz McGuire - thank you for choosing to follow my work Liz, I am really flattered.

It's Saturday again and it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss where our theme this week is "Something Blue".  We have two very generous sponsors this week for the challenge and they are Quixotic Paperie and Bugaboo Stamps so if you want to be in with a chance to win make sure you get your entries in on the Totally Gorjuss blog and as always check out what the lovely DT ladies have made for your inspiration.

Here is my card for the challenge which I made sometime ago for a lady who wanted something modern and fun for her Grandson who was turning 18 - geez an ode to being 18 again!

I just love this image.

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Kenny K - Goldfish Kid
Digital Papers:  Basic Grey - Dawson

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E55 E31 E30
Cap:  YR24 YR23 YR21
Shirt:  B41 B21 B0000
Trousers:  B99 B97 B95 B93
Trainers:  E44 E42 E41
Fish:  YR18 YR09 YR07 YR04
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

I outlined the image with Copics - W1 W0

And there you have it.

I hope you all have a fabulous Easter weekend and get and eat lots and lots of chocolate - yum yum.

Take care

Toodle Pip
