Oh dear love alert!

Oh dear. Something terrible has happened. Sorry, 7 month old baby who probably needs fed and changed. Sorry, husband of 4 years who would perhaps like to talk to me once in a while. Sorry, any friends who want to see me ever again.

Copic Markers have entered my world.

WHO KNEW that a girl with about 60 Promarkers could want to try another alcohol marker??

More on my new love shortly!

It's time for another challenge at Aud Sentiments! And we are sponsored by the absolutely incredible Paper Shelter, who have the most adorable images. I love them. And here is my creation, using my Promarkers for the helmet, top and skateboard, and my lovely Copics for everything else. There's been a revolution in my colouring!

The sentiment is my very own freebie, also available on the challenge blog, which is a favourite Dr Suess quote of mine. I thought it worked well with the skateboarder. Please do feel free to steal these for your stash! I have also done another, with a famous Winnie the Pooh quote! But if you do, leave a wee comment so that I feel loved!

I had seen the amazing fabulous fantastic Kristina Werner (starofmay on YouTube - go look her up, go go go) colouring her "Coloring Wednesday" videos and decided that I might get nicer hair effects with some Copics. After looking out which colours might be best to buy, I settled on a range of five, all in the E50s, ranging from very pale to dark brown. I figured I could try some skin tones and hair colours that way.

And oh...they are just amazing. I love them.

I immediately raided ebay for all the used Copics in the UK. And bought them. All of them.

So by the end of this week I'll have 8 lovely pinks and violets, another 5 (not duplicate) hair and skin colours, and three grey tones. I'm addicted.
