Lovely Irene and her Birds

I really wanted to enter the Outlawz Friday Colouring challenge as they are sponsored by Art by MiRan, one of my design team this month, but I didn't have any Art by MiRan digis with birds on. So....I asked Mi Ran if I could have this one and she sent it to me straight away to use. Such a lovely, generous lady! I'm just so glad to be on her team!

Anyway this card is for The Outlawz Friday Colouring Challenge to use birds, Kraftin' Kimmie's Wonderful Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes, My Time To Craft Challenge #273 and Natalie and Amy's Challenge #28 both of which want you to use new things. I have a new digi stamp, a new pad of paper bought in my local craft store's after Christmas sale and unopened until today, my new Hanging Cage die and my new Elegant Oval dies, so lots of new goodies on this one!

And here she is. I had loads of problems with my skin colour Copics on this one, which is why she's a bit darker than usual. I cleaned my pens before I started but they just wouldn't blend properly at all and I had to keep adding more and more ink to get it as even looking as possible. Will try them again tomorrow but I have no idea what to do with them and 2 out of the 5 colours have had new nibs put in them in the last couple of weeks too. :(
