Poinsettia Sprite


I had a bit of play with my GraphIt Markers on this lovely Aurora Wings digi image.  I have to say that I love the red GraphIts - I first tried those colours on some poppies as I couldn't get sastifactory colours and blends with other red markers, but I do like these - and they like a teeny bit of grey for depth and shadow too!

I'm definitely still learning with these pens, and see myself using the GraphIts and Copics either together or by choice for favourite colours - and as I always tell myself its all about practice!  When I look back at the cards I made using alcohol markers when I first started this blog I like to think I have improved a lot! :-)

I am adding this card to the following:
Just Keep On Creating - Anything Goes - April Link Up Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes Just B Creative Crazy - April Linky Party
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - Make It Square
GraphIt Markers - Shadow Effects (hoping that my shadows between the red and green leaves count - poinsettias are all leaves not flowers)!  I may need a bit more practice!
