Fix it

It may be dank outside but I have a nice warm glow from getting lovely comments about my cards and also another crafty pal. My card today may look so simple but it took me ages to work out how not to cover the background lol. I also had a play with my few copics which are lovely to use but like everything else takes practice. That said this was a great image to play with and use lots of different colours. I almost forget that I can use my spellbinders to create frames but I think it was just what I needed here. I made the sentiment on the computer and used the same die cutter to give it the shape.

  1. Cute Mr Fix It, I love it, great bright colours


  2. What a great card Flo, super image and you've coloured him so well, I know what you mean about practice with your copics it really does take time I'm in awe of all those who colour so well, I just think one day :)

  3. Great card Flora! Love the background paper and sweet sweet image. Clever with the computer sentiment & die - I need to try that.

  4. A great card for a handyman! The DP you've used is perfect for this young Mr Fix it. I've never tried Copics, I've only used Promakers a little bit, I don't have more than 12, and it takes practice, yes. I'm more comfortable using my watercolor pencils....

  5. great card Flora, such a cute image!
