Pocket Letter Fun… Saturday, Aug 8 2015 

I have recently joined a facebook group called Pocket Pen Pals and participated in my very first swap. Now that the swap is done, and my partner Kelly has received her Pocket letter, I wanted to share it with you:

This is my first attempt at a pocket letter and it has been a lot of fun. The theme for this one was ‘pink’ not a hard ask for me and as my partner is a fellow Tilda lover I couldn’t resist adding her in. My Tildas are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E57, E55, E53, E50 clothes: R85, R83, R81, R0000

For a closer look:
