The Hobby House Art Pads

Well Hello to You All - Remember Me Photobucket 
I think I'm finally making progress and getting back into the swing of things slowly but surely and have a card to share with you today Photobucket

Ain't he just so sweet.

Here is a picture of the full card:

The colouring is still a bit rusty and I will have to try and practise more.

Now, let me tell you about these wonderful Art Books from The Hobby House;  each book has a theme with 6 different Elisabeth Bell images of which you get 5 of each, so 30 pages in total.  The card the image is printed on works wonderfully with any alcohol pens so you can colour it whatever colour you want and die cut the image out in whatever shape you want too.

I gotta tell ya these are great value for money at just £5.99 each - I love them.

So on to the recipe for my card:

Image:  Summer Daze Art Book from The Hobby House
Digi Papers:  Echo Park - All About a Boy

I have coloured the image with my Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E27 E25 E23 E21
Clothes:  B05 B04 B02
Boots:  E43 E42 E41 E40
Horse:  E33 E31 E30 / Y21 E53 E51 E50
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0 W00

I have outlined the image with C3
The papers have been distressed to within an inch of their life and then edged with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink

And that's it.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek.  I hope you all have a great weekend.

Hi Hazel,
Good to see some artwork from you again. I don't think your coloring is too rusty, it looks great!
Have a good weekend and 'see' you again soon I hope.

I was beginning to worry we would not see your beautiful work again Hazel. It is so lovely to see you back and your character alcohol pen 'practice' colouring knocks spots off my attempts. Hope to see more of you as and when you can - try not to overdo, slow and steady wins in the end Karen xx
