Today’s card features a sweet little stamp by Elizabeth Bell called ‘ A Pen Friend’. She is one of the many wonderful stamps available from Belles and Whistles My card follows the theme of Love and Hearts set by the Belles and Whistles Challenge and Lots of Lace from the Digi Bells Bloghop

This is what I came up with:

E Bell Pen Friend

I love brown and blue together, it really seems to suit my lovely image. I have stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair and letter: E43, E42, E41, E40 clothes: B97, B95, B93, B91, B0000
