Two cards

Hi folks, I've got two cards to share today, they are both the same image but in different colourways and layouts.  The reason for the two is that I have spent the day colouring in using a tip/tutorial from Jak of Crafter's Kitchen, I am sure you all know who I mean.  The tip was about using the Promarker blender pen for shading. I have always had a problem with shading and have tried many times to replicate some of the shading that a lot of you do so beautifully and always failed badly.   After following Jak's tips I have sort of managed to shade, I still have a long way to go, but here is my two best efforts today - a lot have gone in the bin lol.  I think the blue card is the better one.

The image is Fred She Said as is the bp on the blue card, the bp on the Red card is Cuddly Buddly, everything else is from my stash.

My card's are for the following challenges:
Rainbow Lady - Pets
Passion for Promarkers - Animal Antics
Bah Humbug - Beads ... the beads are on the blue card.

Thanks for dropping by and all of your comments  are very welcome

  6. Well Beryl ... the beauty of being creative is that there is always something new to learn even for the most experienced crafter. Your cards are both lovely and whilst I agree that your blending is better on the blue version that doesn't make the red one wrong - only different! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
