Edward concerntrating (even though still in his very old pj's) he also did the writing and cutting. Henry just stuck.

This is for the simon says childrens challenge of anything goes - thank you to everyone whom comments the boys love hearing your responses xxxx

Promarker trial

I decided to trial my promakers again, I have not used these for over 2 years since i discovered copics, but some of my copics are running out and my wonderful husband said to try promarkers again as they are sitting there gathering dust. Debbi sent me the link for her chart and I coloured it in (admittedly there is one error, when I was not fully concerntrating). Hmm I don't have many as I originally brought the old aqua promarkers and hated them.

So do you want to see my finished work?

I definately need to buy more hair colours if I perserver with them, (I don't have a blender!) Please let me know what you think x The image is a sugar nellie digi.
