Mary, Mary...

Morning all :)


Time for a new Challenge at Little Miss Muffet, and this time round, it's all about Nursery Rhymes. I've used Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary as the inspiration for my card. I've changed the last line of the rhyme though. I planned to attach a bell, cockle shell and little maid charm. But Boy! I faffed with the three charms for nearly as long as it took me to colour the image and they would not sit right. So, there is no maid. Or even three little maids in a row. But there are three little birds in a row instead. Sorted.

On the Little Miss Muffet Facebook Page, there's a Colouring with Pencils Challenge up too, and seeing as the dust was collecting on mine, I thought I'd bring them out for a little play. There was a time when I was more confident with Pencils than Copics. It's defo all about practice. While I have been busy improving my Marker Skills, my Pencil Skills have fallen by the wayside. Pfft!


Supplies...

Those pencil skills look just fine to me, missus! Might just have to blow the cobwebs off my Prismas and have another go, although I always struggle with skintones. Love the colours in your card, Faye - lovely and summery! Hugs, Tracey xx
