BE IN LOVE {Art by Mi Ran Showcase}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Can you believe it that we are already heading towards the middle of February 2015.  At least February is the month of love.  I have used this beautiful fairy called  FLUTTERBY.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase FLUTTERBY here

The theme over at Art by Mi Ran's Showcase Blog is CAS for February.  This is my very first CAS design and boy was it a tall order.  I have coloured her with Derwent water colour pencils and used a blending pencil to smooth the lines out. The clips and design papers are from my stash. The sentiment and word art background are from Paulette {Create with TLC} .


I would like to venture over to the following challenges with this:

    62. Gorgeous card. I am not much in for colouring in so I have not played with these much but since i have taken over Feeling Sketchy we have had a few digi downloads and I decided to play along My colouring skills leave a lot to be desired and I am not sure I want to go the whole copic route. I guess practice makes perfect.
