My Entry for Friday Sketchers

Hello everyone, sorry, with it being the school holidays, I just haven't had much time to make cards or blog. I have tried to leave comments for everyone, on your blogs. This was a hard challenge for me and I wasn't going to do it, but I thought I'd give it a try. It took ages to curl the paper around the image. I usually make neat cards, and don't do all the distressing. This is also the first time I've coloured in with the Pro Markers, they are very different to water colour pencils. I've took a close up as well, you can then see all the mistakes I've made. Still not sure if I like them? Thanks for looking and any comments you may leave. Hugs Jill xx


  1. Wow this is gorgeous like you I find the distressed look difficult but you have made a great job. Did I read pro markers have you given in and bought some!! the colouring looks fab and I am sure you will be converted soon. Sue :o)

  2. Jill, this is so pretty. You have done a great job with the colouring, I could not see any mistakes. x

  3. Fabulous card have done a great job with Bea's sketch...thanks for trying it! Your colouring with your new promarkers is should be pleased!
    Carole ;o)

  4. ohh this is doesn't look like you find it difficult to do the distessed look...and i can't see anything wrong with your colouring....I think that you need to give the markers a bit of time to get used to them..I find them a totally different way of colouring to watercolour...with pratice you will feel happier..(i still feel a little scared of mine)
