Mornig all, no snow yet but the head lines in the papers say a week of snow so they must be right cos they don't tell Its back to work for me today so no crafting today, well thats not exactly true as I ussually spend my lunch break colouring. I'm trying to colour with Promarkers at the moment and I have to say I'm struggling, I'm so used to blending colours and mixing them together and of course with Promarkers you can't get the same effect, they are great for covering large areas, I did colour this image with Promarkers but I wasn't totally happy with the finished result so I applied glamour dust on top and turned it into a sparkly The theme this week at Polkadoodles is Show us some love and include a heart. I used the image and papers from The Sundae of Seasons CD. I just love the string of hearts and kisses that the bear is holding, I did add glossy accents to these and I coloured the buttons as they were originally white.

love the milk choc colour and sparkly bear on your card today Daniele! I couldn't get on with PMs but find that Copics, if kept juicy, are much easier to blend and more like working with water colour.
have a good weekend, and stay warm!
hugs, annie x

Love your sparkly bear card, it's wonderful. I don't like Promarkers, and neither do I like Copic Markers, only Copic Sketch and Ciao, they have a soft nib. But I also love my pencils (don't blend the coloured image anymore with the sansador, like the result better with no blending) and of course I love colouring with Distress inks.
I should use my lunch breaks for colouring as well..but then I don't want to bring all my stuff to the office every morning... I'd rather do some commenting then...
Wonderful card, I love it...I'm not gonna say that I wish it was mine LOL! Still caressing the othter one I got from you, it's so pretty!
Biggest of hugs, Alessandra
