Good Morning All!!
Hope you are well :o)
I've been busy this week preparing for a colouring techniques demo I'm doing at In2Crafting on Saturday 21st - making lots of different samples.
I'm trying not to just use Promarkes LOL - I will be demonstrating Promarkers, of course, but I will also be colouring with pencils and blending with solution, painting with distress inks and this technique below which I tried this week and I'm quite taken with it  - I have printed an image off of a CD Rom in black & white onto textured white card and have then used chalks to highlight different areas - a really simple technique but very effective

I also added some glossy accents

I would like to enter :

I hope you like it and if you live locally to me pop along to the demo and say Hi :o)
