Mark & Milo!


At last!.....a project for you. I am so behind in my crafting due to a few things that have been going on behind the scenes that I was starting to have withdrawal symptoms! So, now that I am starting to get back on track my project today has been created using a Toodles & Binks stamp 'Mark & Milo'

I was hoping to use my copics to colour the whole image, but unfortunately I don't (yet) have the variety of colours that I wanted for colouring this image, I need to get some basic colours, red, green, brown etc...So instead I half coloured with copics and the rest was with my watercolour pencils. The background papers, which so suited this image are from Sweet Shoppe Designs a set called 'are we there yet!' even the luggage tag is from them which I have just added the wording to.

I also used my distress ink pads to add a distress look to the project, the wording 'world traveller' and the US car plate are also from the same download - its not apparent in the photo, as I couldn't get the camera to pick it up, but the car plate has been accented with glossy accents.

As I am slowly getting back on track hope to be back tomorrow with another project for you. Thanks
