I've been a little under the weather, physically and mentally.  So one thing I do when I need to lift my spirits is colour.  I'm still learning the best ways to use my Copic markers, and I got some new Magnolia stamps for Christmas which I still hadn't had much chance to play with.  So I stamped out a bunch of images and sat down to play.

I played with colour and practiced my skin tones with these three imgaes: Magnolia's Tilda with Bananas, Mo Mannings boy with skateboard, and Your Next Stamp's girl with cocoa.

And with this adorable Magnolia Tilda, I played around with doing a sepia treatment.  What do you think?

I really had fun tapping into my "inner artist".  And it did help to relax me.  Now, to make some cards with these fun little guys.


  1. just amazing...your colouring is terrific

  2. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do believe that you should publish more about this subject matter, it might
    not be a taboo matter but usually people don't speak about these topics. To the next! Best wishes!!
