Morning Everyone,

Today is the start of another challenge over at As You Like It and this fortnight we would like to see projects using your favourite colouring medium (and don't forget to tell us why please).

This is the second baby card I made for my daughter, but I think she liked the round shape of the last one best, so this didn't get picked.  It's a digital image from Papernest Dolls which I've coloured with Copic markers.  They are my favourite way to colour at the moment as they are the pens I started with and are most familiar with.  I did get a new set of polychromos pencils for Christmas, but only had a few dabbles with them so far.

I did actually make a boo boo with this card.  I won't go into full details apart from I've been trying some new glue and it just gets all over the place!  Anyway, the heart and the congratulations sentiment aren't where they were originally intended.

The paper I've used is a retired pad from LOTV and the doily rectangle die is from Tattered Lace.
