Birthday Fishes

Hello to you all, hope you had a lovely Easter went far too quickly for my liking but it is only a couple of weeks and then we have another long Bank Holiday weekend :)))

I managed a little bit more crafting over the weekend and I am trying to use some of my stash that has been long neglected.

Before I get onto my card there a couple of things to remind you of still have another week to join in at Ladybug Crafts Ink where the theme is White on White.

Secondly there is a DT call over at Winter Wonderland - if you want to get ahead with your Christmas cards then here is the perfect opportunity.  You have until the 26th April to apply :)

So onto my card  - image was from Pollycraft before the doors were sadly closed on the shop by the lovely Paula :(

So here is my card using the image called Nipper.

Coloured with Polychromo pencils.
I have had quite a number of questions regarding my colouring and what I use.  Well after a lot of practising I have found that the white plain card stock 250 gsm from Papermill Direct gives a great finished result.  I then have also found that the Derwent blending stumps are great as they are quite soft and makes blending a lot easier.  I then use either Sansador or Zest it to blend the pencils.   Hope that helps :))
