Top Tip Tuesday - Copic Tutorial

Good Top Tip Tuesday Morning to you all!

Thanks to everyone who joined in last week with our Christmas inspired challenge - I hope you all enjoyed my Candle tutorial - I'm sorry I couldn't get round to leaving a comment on everyone's makes this week - I've been away for a 'chill-out' break and only got back yesterday morning.

Make sure you pop over to see if you are one of the lucky winners this week.

On to this weeks challenge - Our very talented Dawn has done an amazing tutorial on colouring. She shows up step-by-step how she's got these fantastic results using her Copics.
***Make sure you pop over to Dawn's blog - she has some amazing giveaways going on!***

Isn't it gorgeous - she's used an image from one of our fab sponsors this week - pop over to Whimsy Stamps to browse through 100's of amazing images, sentiments and personalised signatures.

As this weeks Top Tip Tuesday's Tip is a colouring tutorial I have done a card using Promarkers - I don't own Copics but the colouring techniques are the same!

I've used another image from Whimsy Stamps - this one is called 'Little Pocket Mice' and is one of the amazing digi images by MelJens Designs. I have used a piece of vellum over card for the backing, cut out the image after colouring it and then 3d it to a Nestie circle and scallop circle. 2 ribbons at the side, some Dew Drops and Rub On letters to finish off.

So pop over to Top Tip Tuesday and leave us a link to your tip or a link to your project using an image - or how about both!
