Graph'It Marker Challenge - Fur 'n' Feathers!

Yep this week over on the Graph'It marker blog we want to see Fur 'n' Feathers! I opted for feathers as I was desperate to use this gorgeous little guy from Polka Doodles! Isn't he just the cutest thing ever??

Anyway, I tried something a little different this week with my colouring and I have to say I'm really pleased with the end result! I coloured the robin with my Graph'It markers and then added a few light strokes with my Prismacolor Pencils. I think the result is awesome as the pens add real depth to the image whilst the pencils help to add even more texture.

I made a little box card to sit him in and used a range of the new stamps that Polka Doodles have launched to embellish the card with.

I hope you like my project this week and that you'll come and join us.

Thanks for stopping by today.
