I've discovered on the Lily of the Valley site demo videos on how to colour in with Promarkers and an article giving advice on which colours are the most useful, e.g. for skin, hair and fur - you can see them here. I found the videos really helpful and I printed out the colour charts so my purchase of Promarkers will be less random in future.
While I was in the shop I got to meet some other card makers who were busily producing Christmas cards for the forces out in Afghanistan. Well, not exactly for them but cards that they can send to their loved ones at Christmas. They don't have anywhere to buy cards to send home - no Clintons where our forces are stationed - so this is the only way they can get cards for their loved ones while they are stuck out there away from home. As an ex soldier myself (yes, think Private Benjamin and you'll get the picture) I think it's a brilliant idea and will be donating several of my cards to this cause. As far as I know it's a local project but should any of you be interested I would be happy to get more details.
And here, finally, is the latest in the 4" x 4 series I'm making - series sounds grand, doesn't it?
I followed the same formula - took the design paper, BoBunny 'Believe', round the back and decorated inside then trimmed with peel-offs as I did in the previous card. The 'Happy Christmas' is a red peel-off from Anita's.
