You give me courage to Fly .....

Hello there :)  It's been a hot one here today ... again ... and a long day for me ... the little one was in a mood!

It has been nice to finally sit down and create this card this evening.  I coloured this sensational image from Tickled Pink Stamps last night.  His name is Lil Victorian Eric and is the latest to my extensive Tickled Pink collection.

 I have coloured Eric in Copic Markers and spica pens.  For the Background I have used one of brand new embossing folders ... came in a set of cogs and watches etc ... love them!  A lot of my images are Steampunk type images .. so these folders will be well used.  I also used my brand new Tim Holtz distressing tool for around the edges of the striped paper .... yippeeeeee love the effect ... so glad I finally found out how people have been doing this LOL!

I was a little worried about how to go about colouring this fellow .. so chose my papers first and then the rest just seemed to flow.    The sentiment is also from Tickled Pink Stamps.

Thankyou so much for stopping by ... sorry it's not a very informative post .. but I'm itching to colour ... so bye for now.
