Saturday Sharing

Oh My Goodness!! - I almost forgot to share a post with you today - but as my Mum would say "Better Late Than Never"! - and hopefully, it was worth the wait... because... I have.. not, one, but two cards to share today :)

The images are both digital stamps from Mo Manning - "Pineapple Girl" and "Kalei" adorable tropical feel to these island cuties!

It was fun to use the same combination of colours on both these cards - and end up with different results. I also experimented with different skin tones (very new for me). I even added "rosier" cheeks by using RV42 instead of my favoured R20 - actually, I reached for a whole new colour combination of pink for these cards - I felt my usual combination of R81, R83 and R85 was not vivid enough for a tropical theme. If you are looking for new pink combinations yourself, be sure to pay a visit to the Mad for Markers Challenge Blog the DT have been sharing some gorgeous creations using R or RV Copic Makers - don't be afraid to join in too :)

Happy Colouring,
