Take it Easel-y

Alrighty then :)


Time for a new Challenge over at Tiddly Inks... Take it Easel-y. Simples. I've used lots of scrummy goodies you can get at Dies to Die For. Just sayin!

Normally, I'm a big fan of Easel Cards, right up to the point I need to take a photo. They are so awkward, aren't they? Anyway, maybe because it needed to be an Easel Card, I didn't enjoy making this one. I think it may well get pulled apart. And don't fall over, but look, no Copics! It's all Pencil, Baby. I haven't coloured an image fully in Pencil for ages, but it was fun. I think I might try it again...


Polychromos Used... 
Skin; 132, 189, 131, 178, Hair; 283, 176, 175, 199, Green; 172, 165, 275, White; 231, 232, 234

Supplies...

Come, Faye....come join us Pencil People...mwah ha ha ha. ;-)

This is completely cute! Don't pull in apart, you meanie, send it to me instead! I'll keep it safe. :-) I totally kwym about easel cards, though. They sure are camera shy and make you work to get a good photo. I think they're best friends with glitter and Glossy Accents.

Just catching up with a bit of commenting, where do the days go? Great Pirate card on the previous post, a fun little boys image and super colouring too.
Love Ellie's green outfit and stripy stockings, really cute and there is definitely nothing wrong with that easel card - you leave it alone :)
Take care,
Lorraine
