A reindeer's for life not just for Christmas!

Good Morning everyone
Happy Monday!

 Today I have a super cute little chap to show you that I have been itching to colour for ages!

I don't know if I have ever mentioned that I have a little (big)! soft spot for reindeer.
I have wanted to try no lines colouring for a while but I have, in all honesty, totally lacked the confidence to go for it!

I have to say, had it not been for my lovely friend Faye I probably would never have attempted this!  

I did my Copic Certification with Faye and learned such a lot from her.
If any of you are interested in learning more about Copic Colouring I know Faye would love to hear from you - plus, we have a fabulous Dies To Die For event on 29th and 30th October where Faye will be running some workshops.
All the details can be found HERE

Anyways, back to no lines colouring - I love it!  It is a bit strange at first but after a while your eyes sort of get used to the pale outline.  It did take longer than normal but I was being mega careful not to muss it up! 

Say hello to Rudolph, who is very kindly giving you all a wave.

Oh my word, he's gorgeous. I coloured this fella with no-lines a while ago but he's not made it onto a card yet. I'm a little ashamed to share him now I've seen yours.

Wow Sue.... you've really rocked the no lines colouring technique - I can't believe this is your first go as it's perfect!! Of course, with my weakness for a Rudolph... I'd have loved this card anyway.. and I THINK I may just have to buy it!!
