So dang adorable!!!

You Cutie Patootie!


I think coloured pencils are just fine or if you get more into the colouring, maybe get watercolour pencils. Copics do cost a LOT and you are right, there are soooooooooo many colours to get. eeek!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeee this!!! You did GOOD!!! I have invested in THREE (or is it FOUR??? hmmmmmmmmmm....) copics... TOTALLY SUCK at free handing it... HOWEVER COMMA.... I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee to use them with my friends airbrush machine.... I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee to use them for that... 100% better than misting! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

OK...i'm not sure what Julie is talking about in the comment above me about using Copics and an airbrush, but I need to find out!

I think you did a great job with the markers! I would be horrible at it, which is why I don't own any myself...ha! The little girl does indeed look "Berry Happy" :)


Such a sweet card!!! ADORE the title!!



I have Copic markers on my wish list right now.

Love the little girl stamp! So cute!

Very nice card! There is another technic that is used with Prismacolor pencil, baby oil and a paper pen. You color the contour or the image with the prismacolor pencil, then you dip the paper pencil in baby oil. Just the tip. You start by coloring one color at the time and color towards the middle of the image. When you want to change color, with the paper pencil, they sale sand paper to sharpen the paper pencil and also removed the color from the paper pencil. If I have a chance, I will put a picture on my blog for you to see. It's beald-a-bear stamp.I'll let you know.

Kathy Racoosin

Oh gosh...this is fantastic..clever and so creative Deana!!!!!! Love your coloring and how you placed the fence in front of her!! I was so happy to finally meet you, color with you and drink with you.
HOpe you are doing ok without Bryn :(
