Alison Palmer - 'Baby Angel Castiel'


I hope you are all well and really wanted to share this post with you :)

I have had a image coloured by Alison Palmer sent to me which is her first colouring using ProMarkers and it is beautiful.  

Alison wanted to add a comment to my Blog Post for the NSPCC Fundraiser E-Book, and show her beautiful work.  

Well, I could not have that! LOL

To do this justice, Alison deservers her very own post on my Blog :)

Here is her reply to me :0)

Here is what I wanted to say --
 Thank you for your brilliant e-book. 
I have not done any colouring since my daughter was a child but I enjoyed it as the steps were easy to follow.  

I hope you sell lots of these as it is such a good cause.

Here is my completed picture.

Lady Jane Image

Lady Jane Image by Scrappers' Delights'

Tutorial by Donna-Marie Jerrett -  E-Book Number 1, 2nd Tutorial.

Hello, here is my first attempt at Lady Jane.  I am really pleased with how her hair came out and the pleats however not with the purple coat....It leaked and left a lovely splodge ath the bottom left and a massive blob all over the bottom right hand corner just as I had finished!  Doh!

The Promarker in question and I have now parted company....hah...

Enjoy and Thanks for Looking.
