Oldies But Goodies at Karen's Doodles

Well, it's Thursday already, which means it's time for another Oldies But Goodies showcase over at the Karen's Doodles Challenge Blog.  And without further ado, here's what I have for you today:

Image: Karen's Doodles, 'Little Helping Hands'

Papers: October Afternoon, Seaside collection

This has to be one of my favourite Karen's Doodles images - it is soooo cute.  Unfortunately, I've been experiencing some difficulty with my Copics and paper combo so the skin tones on this one are a little off.  Hopefully my new paper (Neenah Super Smooth) should help elimnate the streaking and, of course, filling my pens some would help!! 

It's somehow apt that I should have chosen this image this week - and can I just say a big 'thank you' to all of you who have left comments and sent e-mails wishing my MIL well - you are so kind and your support is very much appreciated.

Back to the card - I coloured the image with my Copics and applied a little Prismacolor to the background.  I've only recently received this October Afternoon paper collection but it's had plenty of use because I love the colour combos and patterns.  This combo is fresh and bright - just right for a little 'get well' cheer.

Now don't forget to check out the Challenge blog to see what my other OBG teamies have been up to.  Of course, you can also check out this week's challenge, which is all about gift boxes - rather a good idea at this time of year!  Why not join us in the fun and show us your favourite box - just remember to use a Karen's Doodles image on your project too.

Happy crafting.


  1. Peri you always do something extra special with Karens images this is beautiful.

  2. Peri, I love the checks and the plaids together and your coloring is fabulous as always. She just looks a little tan, lol. Great job, hon, hope you are feeling better.
