Another 1 and 2 fours

Oh to be that young again! I have come to a point in my life where I have to colour my hair once a month or I am so grey my mother wouldn't recognise me! What's with that!!

Anyhow, these are additional cards that my friend asked for. She actually asked for 4 and 6, but I was having such fun with these, I wanted to try them all. So be warned, there are more to come, rofl!! Sorry!!! At least you can all see that I have been busy, I just haven't been posting much, it is too cold in my study. Okay I can turn a heater on, but it's usually such a mission and I am probably just too lazy, who knows!

These were all coloured with prismacolor pencils and blended with sansador. I cut them out with my nesties and layered the image on a nestie mat. I tried to get a bit of a circus tent look with the striped ones, not sure I achieved that, but seeing there's a clown I thought it would be perfect.

I really do like these images for kids' cards, they are so easy to colour and simply great for those who want the number on the card! That is always a HUGE challenge for me.

Now I have to go and see where my irrigation system is leaking. I found the spot yesterday, but I got to go and test it, so I can see exactly without having a muddy dam of water to try and see through, lol, it wasn't a whole dam, but close.

That's that for today! Hope you have a great day!

Yep, the striped paper is PERFECT for the clown images. I really like it! LOVE how you cut the clown out with the oval on an angle. Would've never thought of that! Your friend is going to love all of these! Ohhhh to be 4 again!!!

I have been keeping an eye out for the next lot of cards and they are fabulous! Please would you email me with details of stockists of Prismacolour pencils in RSA - I use Faber-Castell Polychromos, but would also like to try Prismacolours, especially their pinks. I'm told they are much better than the F-C's.
Many hugz
