Biking Angel

It's been over two months since my last post on here. Wow. I went through a major slump and lost all of my creative mojo. I tell ya what got me out of it too - Copics! About 2 weeks ago, I caved in and bought my first, about 12 or so. Loved 'em so much I placed another a week later. These markers are great and I really can see what everyone loves about them. I haven't quite gotten my blending down pat yet and I know it'll be a while before I work on my shading, but I love the results they give with just plain coloring. So fun! If you're on the fence or in the market for them, I highly recommend Oozak. They have the best prices I've seen and free (and fast) shipping on orders over $50.00. Make sure you register to see the lowest price. As soon as I got my first order I couldn't wait to get to work on an image. So for my first post back I'll be sharing my entry for this week's High Hopes Challenge. It is a fab sketch by DT member Lacey.
I found my new source for the adorable High Hopes stamps. 7 Kids has wonderful pricing and reasonable shipping too. This image is titled Lizabeth Biking Angel. Isn't she cute? I only have a limited number of Copics (about 32) so I have to choose my papers carefully. I know what I'll be asking for from Santa this year! Ha. The pattern papers are from K&Company's Citronella line. It has a lot of bright and fun papers. I added some Diamond Stickles to her wings for a little extra sparkle. Primas and skittles finish it all off. That is all for me for today. I photographed another card I finished today when I did this one so I hope to be back soon to share that with you all. I'm also off work tomorrow so hopefully I can get another card or two done. Thanks for stopping by!
