Let Hope Fly - Celebrating Memorial Day

WOW! What an incredible night we had.  4am wake up call by nature.  The loudest thunder I have ever heard and the biggest lightning show my eyes have ever seen.  It was incredible, I don't  think I'll have much gardening on the agenda today which means I can get on and do some more crafting, especially since I have now been accepted onto a new Design Team.
I'd love to share with you all my first posting as a member of the Simply Betty Stamps Design Team.  I've been a fan for years and have been working really hard on my colouring skills to apply for those 'dream team positions'.  I'm thrilled I now get to work with such talented artists.  Thank you Betty for picking me to showcase all of your wonder art work.
So, lets move on, less of me and more about Betty.
It's Memorial Day in USA and Bank Holiday in UK, Betty has a lot of sales, raffles and fun going on that simply cannot be missed.
Let Hope Fly, is the freeb image available if you purchase $12 or more of digital images from Betty's online Store.

Conie Fong New Release - Butterfly Kissess


Have you seen the New Releases over at Conie Fong Art & Design!!   OMW! they are gorgeous, you really must get yourselves over to the store to take a look.  Butterfly Wishes and Butterfly Kisses.  Conie draws the most beautiful ladies, dainty features with that long flowing hair we all love to colour in.

Just click on the name of the digi and it will take you right to the store.
I took a few pictures of my work and couldn't decide which was the best, so I hope you like picture shows!
I had a few problems with my copic markers for this image on the skin, it's not as perfect as I would like it.  Good news is, I discovered the problem and hope that my images in the future won't look blotchy in places.

I have used Copic marker pens to colour this image, colours are as follows;

Skin: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R34, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29, E49
Dress: YG23, YG06, YG11

Embellishments are from Petal Lu, the new Rainbow's & Unicorn colours.
