Oh Boy!

Morning, just wanted to pop on here to share a card made with 'Your my Best' by Mo Manning.  I wanted dark jeans on him so I tried using one of the darkest blue PM's I have, I always find dark colours very hard to colour as the shading is next to impossible.  To overcome this I add detail with the fine nib of a Whispers colouring pen, in fact I added fine detail throughout the image with the co-ordinating pens.
Yesterday I found a fab blog devoted to sketches,Kathy's Waffle Sketch Files.  There are some really fab ones there so please do pop over to see for yourself!

Lastly just wanted to share the gift box I made to go with Steph's card, this gift is a coconut rings necklace!  I didn't even know coconut's had rings!  She loves rustic chunky jewellery so hopefully this will be a winner!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
