Wayhay - I Done it - at last

I just love white space on cards but never seem to be able to manage it.
It looks bare - so I add more, and more until I finally reach the overdone cluttered look.
Thanks to the fabulous sketch at Friday Sketchers this week I've done it!! I couldn't resist putting a flourish border around the papers and image but LOOK - not one flower, not one ribbon, no charms. But did sneak a few pearls and some leaves in. My challenge to myself finally accomplished. The image is one sent to me by my matey Tara (thanks honey) so gorgeous to colour that I actually managed to use my copics - another first - most end up in the bin - images that is not Copics. This is not brilliant but you know what they say
'Practice makes Perfect' I just have to remember to switch mind set and not use them as I use pastels or watercolours.

Not the best card I've ever done but all in all - I like it and I'm chuffed to bits - bad day
turns good!!

Well Heather, you should be proud of yourself.. I absolutely love it!

I am like you.. not too sure about too much white space, but hey, you've done it great. Love the copics too.. don't forget to use a coated cardstock, apparantly it makes it easier to blend - I bought my first lot last week and have fell in love with them.. this is just a little tip the lady gave me.

Love Jo x
