I used an image by Gingerloft called "Reindeer Carousel" which is available at the Stitchy Bear Store.
I coloured the reindeer with Promarkers and used some papers by Kaisercraft. The little presents and sentiment are also Kaisercraft (I'm making use of my magazine freebies again lol) and some raffia ribbon stuff from my stash.
I did go round the image with a light grey Promarker but you can't see it here...... it's the only time for ages that my colouring has looked ok and you can't even see it lol.
I haven't been able to get any of my normal cardstock for my card bases or paper for colouring on as my local craft shop has stopped making it (it's made at the papermill next to the shop) and the only thing they had was pearlescent stuff which is great for printing pre coloured images on and they look really nice and shimmery, but it is rubbish for colouring with markers on. The ink dries way too quick on it so you can't blend the colours and it just looks all streaky, so all my images lately have been coloured super quick with one colour and no shading etc (like a 5year old's colouring lol), but yesterday I found a sheet of leather effect cardstock that I must of bought months ago, so I decided I would try printing my image on the back of it as it's only the front that has the leather effect and it printed out great and was so easy to colour on :)...... just a pity I only had one sheet! So tomorrow it's back to streaky images lol.
If anyone out there knows where I can but decent paper for using Promarkers on that does not cost the earth, I would be sooo happy! One of my lovely bloggy buddies recommended create and craft cardstock but I don't have anywhere near me which sells it, and I don't fancy paying all that p&p just for a pack of paper, so any other suggestions would be great :)
Oh before I go, remember to have a peek at my blog candy that I posted earlier today! It's in the post above this one and anyone can enter :)
