Big Hugs!

Well hello guys! I wondered when I was going to get this posted...Hooray for blogger fixing itself :)

So today I have stamped and coloured the wonderful image from Elisabeth Bell called 'A Pen Friend' now available from Belles and Whistles and can be bought at Quixotic Paperie. She is coloured entirely with pencils....back to my roots! ooops I lied slightly. Just her skin is done with copics and a little touch of Henna pencil for the shadows on her face. You know sometimes I forget just how MUCH I *heart* my prismas!

OK some of the other yummy gorgeous products I used on this card that can be found in Quxiotic are:
All the papers are stitched and then I added some gorgeous seam binding ribbon and a wooden button to finish.

Here is a wee peek of the inside.

This card can be bought from my Etsy shop here.

I have started adding some large watermarks over my images now, as many of you will be aware that there are some very unscrupulous sellers over on e-bay who are pinching our card images and selling them off as their own on CD's. I have found that many of my card images have been stolen. So ladies do what you can to protect your own work. If you have not done so sign up for your work to be protected by Copyright ( click on the link at the top right of my sidebar if you need to know how to do this) and also add watermarks over your images so that it makes it harder for these thieves to steal and make a profit from our work.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I love the pencil colouring - especially the detailed shading of her hair & the shadow beneath her. The inside is delightful with the placing of the patterned paper to show that little bit of a branch & the image stamped in outline opposite. the Stmepelglede detial echoes the patterned paper beautifully too. Have discovered I can get my watermarking done once I start posting on the Apple/Mac blogging platform so that is becoming a priority now.
