Bloom and Grow!

Morning all!

Well today I have one of the fabulous new Manga images from Sugar Nellie to show you all! I received my DT pack the other day and I just had to ink up this little cutie first. I LOVE her!! These Manga images are so easy to colour. I know traditionally these images are supposed to be coloured with copics or similar, but I use koh-i-noor pencils and I think they still look just as good!




Materials

Image: 'Bloom and Grow' from the new Manga collection by Sugar Nellie. Available here at Funky Kits. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

CS: DCWV and SU choc chip

Paper: Bloom and Grow MME

Sentiment: SU On A Pedestal set

Tools: Nesties, sponges for distressing/inking edges, EK Sucess dotted wave border punch

Misc: Pearl from stash

As you may have noticed from my last few posts I have been playing with my pics in picasa so they are now cropped a bit better and a little larger which gives you a better look at them! I know many of you will have been doing this for a while now, but me being a bit of a technophobe it has taken me a little longer to get to grips with it! Lol!

Well my OH goes away tomorrow to Austria for a week and whilst I will miss him lots, it also gives me the chance to catch up on some much needed crafting. I want to delve further into my DT pack and play with some more of the new Manga's and Mary Hall images!

Well I hope you all have a good weekend and like me you manage to fit some crafting in!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
