Mushroom with a view

Shaped Cards is the theme at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this week.So thinking caps on!.Please take a look at the challenge blog for details on how to play along and be in the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop.Don’t forget to check out the beautiful DT work while you’re there.

Don’t forget the special offer this month at the store.The more you buy the more you save!Great way to stock up on your fave digi stamps,eh?

I’ve used the pensive Fairy & Mushrooms from Digi Doodle Shop and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers.Now I have to admit I coloured the fairy and musrooms first then decided to put the sky in afterwards.I was nervous about messing the whole thing up so I practiced on a piece of scrap and was pretty pleased how it turned out.So what was the first thing I did on the real thing?Picked the wrong pen!!Not only that but it kind of made any other colour I used with it split rather than blend 😦 So out came the trusty Blender pen to save the day.Not on this occasion it didn’t.I even tried softening it with white pastel pencil to no avail.I was happy with everything in the foreground and really didn’t want to start over again so hopefully what’s going on there will detract from my botch job.Mind you the sky was actually looking like that at the time.Any way onto a happier note I love this Nestie I used and am pleased how the card in general turned out.I decided to fold the base in half rather than layer everything one on top of the other and like the look.I even got to play with my new flower punch and leaf die.Yay!

    I think the sky looks good…it has a thunderstorm look to them. Makes it different then blue skies and every card. I think it was a happy mistake!!
