Papertake Weekly Challenge

I thought I'd have a go at Dawny's fantastic sketch this week for Papertake Weekly Challenge.

Now Dawny loves her Pro Marker Boys but I struggle with them so much, so used to water colours and the easier shading that comes with it, well not one for letting loose my Pro Markers just yet I thought I'd try them out again - Mmmm not sure about this image though- they bleed a lot too - Grrr!!! - Any tips welcome!!!

This is so gorgeous - love that cute image and the colouring looks fine to me, but I know what you mean about bleeding - I have some copics and I get bleeding. I read somewhere what to use but bird-brain that I am I can't remember - let me know when you find out will you? Love your white space it makes for a stunning card.

Hi Dawn,
your colouring looks fab to me hun....I love my promarkers and i find if you press too hard and try to colour right up to the line they drag your stamped line as the ink soaks into your card so i always colour a mm or so away from the line and it gently bleeds up to it...stop me if i'm waffling lol!!

hope thet help a 'wee' bit as you would say lol!

love your papers too i got those
this month and wasnt sure how i would used them but they look fab on your card!

Hi Dawn, I think you've coloured your image beautifully and I love the bright fresh colours you've used. I'm new to Promarkers as well but I have found it best to use a smooth non porous card. I bought a good card from www.stampsandmemories.co.uk which I find works well.
