~ 365 Cards: Day 191 ~

After a 3 week hiatus, I'm back to creating! Took me a week to settle in after arriving home (laundry and unpacking took considerably time, not forgetting slight jet lag as well! The weather didn't help either, especially after basking in temperatures of 30ish degree Celcius for 5 weeks to suddenly experiencing 10ish upon returning! Talk about sudden shock to the human system.)

This week we are sponsored by Wink Wink Ink Digital Stamps

Today's challenge is 'All Creatures Great And Small' which should be included in the card. Well, I got to play with 2 adorable creatures and here's my card: 

Digi images coloured using Copic markers. Patterned papers from Basic Grey Granola collection. The musical sheet is 7 Gypsies Avignon paper tape, the only scrapbook item I picked up from the LSS in Singapore.

Enjoyed using my Copic markers. Bought a shedload while I was in Singapore as they are far cheaper there (at least nearly half what is sold in the UK!) and the store having a 15% discount helped tremendously! Rather than going for sets, I went for shades of colours instead, opting for different tones in each set of colours. I had originally Set B of 36 colours and realised I couldn't do much shading with them so based on those colours I had, I just bought the various tones. There are lots of tutorials and videos around and they helped tremendously. I still learning though .....

Hoping to do more creating but I think a spring clean is needed for my craft room.... losing sight of the floor at the moment! Sigh! Thankless task! TTFN!
