Hi - I'm enjoying having an extra day off thanks to a bank holiday even if the weather isn't that great! Been playing with my pro-markers, watching some tutorials and practicing my colouring and I'm quite pleased with the result - feel like I'm making progress! There are loads of back to school challenges about and it's not a theme I'd usually do, but I fancied trying something different. I don't have anything specifically suited to this theme so had to adapt a little - I coloured Tilda who is actually holding a butterfly, but made an apple for her to hold instead - which has glossy accents on but it doesn't really show up.
I didn't have anything school like for her to sit on so drew some books freehand under the stamped image and coloured. I've used the sketch from a new challenge I came across this week - Friday Mash Up, who have the added option of using dry embossing. As you can see I've used two embossing folders on some paper for the background layers - I bought these a while ago as they were on offer and they've sat on the shelf untouched since! I think this qualifies for the challenge at Just Add Ink where the challenge is to use something from our stash we've had for ages and never used. You can really see the texture in this pic-
