I did it again

I made a card using the sketch saturday sketch, go to load it this morning and then realise it is Saturday and the newest one has now been posted :( stupid me lol. 
Well I have had this stamp for a long while now but this is the first time I ave used it, don't you just love her? she is one of the gorgeous stamps from Kraftin Kimmie, I can't wait to get some of her newer images I LOVE them. 

Here is my card

I coloured the Image with Copic markers and used my new pen to add in the highlights. I used a different type of card to stamp on this time. I recently made a trip to Sir Stampalot in Peterborough and their residen Copics demonstrator was there, she recommended I give this card a try and I can tell you for sure I will now be using nothing else it is absoloutly brillint, no bleeding of colours at all it is brilliant and made colouring the image much more enjoyable and the colours were actually easier to blend. Whats great too is that I can also put i through my printer for my Digi images :) brilliant. If you want to give it a go hop along to their website here and get some for yourself :) They also have brilliant prices on copic markers. 
I used basic gray papers for this card mounted with plain red cardstock that I also bought at sir stampalot. The sentiment is by papermania. 

I am entering this card in to the following challenges; 

My time to craft - Ruby ruby ruby - use red
Creative Belli challenges - Birthday & use something old from your stash - the little red stars I have used I have had ever since I started crafting and have never once used them - think they look good with this though :) 

Thank you for visiting me today. Just a little heads up I will have a blog candy coming soon either today or tommorrow. This is in aid of my up coming blogaversary and will also be to celebrate the fact that I am running the race for life this year for the first time EVER. So keep your eyes peeled and be sure to enter as there are some exciting goodies for grabs.

Hi Amanda

Your colouring of this image is fabulous, reds and darker colours are difficult ones to work with and still get shadowm,, but you have managed perfectly.

Please you saw Louise, she is a great source os inspiration.
