New cards

Over the weekend , I had a wonderful time cropping with a great group of ladies. I decided to take the day and work on various cards. I had ordered Blanche awhile ago and colored her as well ,but never put her into a card, so here she is in different tones.

both ladies were colored using copic markers, however the paper I used was called Heav
enly and I won't use it again. I think it took the markers poorly they seemed to "lay" on the surface as opposed to blending into it. But I gave it a good shot it doesn't hurt to try out new paper you never know when you might find something new.
Thanks for checking things out , hope you liked what you saw.

I will be entering them in the following   girls,girls, girls Bunny Zoe's crafts
