Packing Light

We have 2 sponosors this week Iva Nova Chest and Saturated Canary. One lucky winner will win a prize package and another some sweet digi's so your gonna want to play this week. Now I struggle with pastel colours just because I love darker ones but I think this worked out really nice at least she's coloured really soft and I tried to avoid Black ink for the tags. This is a big card too or the flowers would just take it over it's been fun making big cards less restrictions with them and you can add in alot more to the card.

WOYWW + Candy

Well this week I have no desk/floor to show the place has a realotors walk thru tommorrow and what's the point of pulling out some stash then having to put it away again tucked under here and neatly put away in boxes so I'll share a card I've made and also a Satuated Canary digi I've coloured all up may it help those who love to know how or what colours where . You can see all my boxes neatly put away I have to hide those few cards I finished when I could and my soft blanket that I sit on the floor with hiding my papers Oh and those envelopes you see are some candy to be won  on my blog ends April 5th I was going to have it as followers candy but seems kinda silly to do now with google stopping the followers so for those that want to join in add a link to it on your sidebar and follow if you can on blog lovin or google if you like :) Check out the other desks at Julia's

This is all done with Touch Twin Markers I've used the very few brush markers I own and worked with the limited colours. They don't sell brush markers in Canada yet I won these from playing a challenge long time ago. I'm breaking down and buying a few prismacolors when I can afford them. Love the brush on them and they have some really pretty colours to work with.
if you have any questions about it ask away
Skin tone = R 131,YR 133
Touch markers can be overlayed over each other like watercolours getting
darker shades with only one marker.

So here's my card that I just finished up
Simon Says - Choose a Sketch #2
Stamp and Create - Feather or Fur
Recipe Digi=Limited Runs - Owl Theo,Papers from Stash and Bling

No Desk today everything has been neatly tucked away seeing this place is going up for sale and our landlord asked us nicely if we could clean so he could take pictures of the place so alot of stuff has been tucked under the bed and anywhere else we can this is the tidest I could make my little space without moving it all to under the bed ... and such a pain that would be lol for me when I want to sneak in a project it's very hard not to want to create a little something when you have a free moment !!!
So pop over to Julia's and join in the showing of your desk  and I have candy to win too  HERE end's April 5th and there is more then shown I want to leave it as a surprize !!!
Happy Wed
