Then I discovered Lili of the Valley and Sarah Kay stamps (which probably remain my favourite rubber stamps - with Mo Manning and Bugaboo for digi stamps). I used to colour the image in whatever colours took my fancy and then scrabble about amongst my (ever-growing) paper stash to find suitable papers! Now I tend to pick the image, then the papers, then colour the image to match - then play about with embellishments!
So I'm hoping tomorrow to concentrate on actually constructing these cards!
And as you can see, I tend to use a variety of pens. I do love using copics as I find they blend the best, but I only have a small selection (funds being what they are!), but I do have a reasonable stash of promarkers gathered over time that I often use. A set of 30 or so Graphit pens were bought for me at Christmas and I mix and match using these with the other ones lol!
I'd love to know how you feel your crafting has developed and changed over time! And I'll share the finished cards with you asap!
Hope you manage to fit some crafting time into your weekend!
