Trying to use up my pre-printed images I pulled out Cold Kitty Tia. Her hair and skin had been coloured for MONTHS but that's it. I thought I'd finish her up today. There was a little mishap, my pencil created a black line on her cheek somehow, so I decided instead of throwing away the entire image I'd give her a little imperfection. I also let that direct the sentiment and feel of the card and I think it came out kinda sweet. Using up some fun, girly, Easter themed paper from last year too.

Welcome to Spring! Or so I'm told. Here in the SoCal mountains it's been rather cool, but our ski resorts are on their last legs for the season, so I suppose Spring is coming. A celebration is called for such an occasion and the little fairies of Make it Crafty are totally on it! What do you think? Total springtime fun, yeah?
all! Aeryn here. This week's challenge for the team was "Walk Like an
Egyptian". Pretty apropos considering our AMAZING Mic and TI
collaboration blog hop last Thursday (make sure you check it out). Well,
in making my entry I was inspired to make another little scene. Here,
the lovely Cleo is just too tuckered out from all that dancing. Walking
like an Egyptian is tough! LOL! See, even her handmaiden has to fan her!
there everyone! This is my first MiC tutorial, so I hope you like it.
I've combined the step by step images so that you can clearly see the
image progression, I hope that works for you. I've only done one or two
other tutorials so I'm really flying by the seat of my pants here.
Anyway, this tutorial, as the title says, is about combining coloured
pencils with your Copics. Maybe you don't have the full set of Copics to
give you that large range or colours. Or you have a set of slightly
unloved pencils you'd love to get more use out of. Well, combining
markers and pencils is a real great way to utilize both of those tools.
You can add a lot of depth to your marker coloured images with the
addition of pencils.
you want to move on to the hair. You COULD do the hair first, it *is*
my favourite part... and if it's difficult for you perhaps starting with
the hair will mean being able to practise without spending all that
time on your skin techniques. But, for this image, I did the hair
that's it! I hope you liked my tutorial and found it useful! All of
these photos are available at www.aerynkelly.com under the "tutorial"
tab as well as my other tutorials I have done. And remember, even if you
don't have Copics, give this technique a try. It will work with ANY
brand markers and ANY brand pencils you may have; all you need is
imagination. I also encourage you to pin these images and spread the
