TodayI thought I would show you some cards made in the past using promarkers , as they are all the rage at the moment. For anyone thinking all you can do is colour in Magnolia stamps, think again. They are fabulous pens, and once you have had a go you will be hooked.
This one also has prisma pencils on the arms and legs, for a softer shading. combining the 2 mediums works really well. I sometimes layer pencils over pens, to add a nice finish. This was hand drawn on bleed proof paper then cut out and stuck down over some strips of patterned paper.
This was a really simple one, again hand drawn. I copied from a gardening magazine, and just did a quick doodle round the edge to finish it.
This one took a bit longer and i wasn't happy with the shading on the leaves, but it was done just before the new 56 colours came out, so now there are more choices of colour.
I drew the dog first,cut him out and stuck him to the card, then thought it looked plain so added the flower, only it was a bit big for the card and hangs over the edge at the top, meaning I had to use a bigger envelope...no forward planning here guys!
This one took ages, but I do like it, I drew an image from a manga book. The background is just doodling with lines and dots.
These 3 are from a set I sent off to soldiers serving abroad, they have no access to notepaper, so these are just blank notecards for them to send to their families.
Again , one drawn from a gardening book.
I love the way the wings turned out on this but don't like her arms and legs. I never did art at school or college, so every picture is a learning curve for me. ...and again the picture didn't fit on the card lol
This was drawn last year for a friend's birthday card.
Finally here are 2 cards made this week using the papers and images from Kirsty Wiseman's cd ROM, Colour Me Crazy. There will be a new cd launched at the end of this month so watch out for that.
