Love is in the air at MiC!

Welcome to the latest Make it Crafty blog hop!


Love is in the air at Make it Crafty and not just because we have new images but because we have a new illustrator too! Victoria has such a cute style and her images are perfect for colouring enthusiasts of all levels. The style is simple enough for beginners to practise blending yet offer flexibility for the more adventurous colourer to add detail to clothing and hair. We hope you love this new collection as much as we do and to help celebrate we thought we would have a fun blog hop to showcase the new release.

You should have arrived here from the lovely Dorinda. If you missed someone or got lost along the way, start back at Zoe's blog to join in the fun. 

*PRIZES*
It wouldn't be a Make it Crafty blog hop without prizes so we've got hidden prizes along the way randomly drawn from the comments section.

PLUS, between now and Sunday 9th, you can order the collection at a discount of 30%, normally discounted at 15%. You don't need any codes! It's automatically reduced in store.

Today I am sharing a card using Cupid's Desire which you can find in store. I am not big on pink and girly cards, so I have gone with a blue theme for this little guy. I tried my hand at the no-lines technique for this one. In traditional Amy style I made life difficult for myself by printing this so light I needed my daylight lamp to see the lines (ha!), but I am pretty pleased with the results. I added some clear Spica to the wings for a bit of shimmer which you can see in the close up below. 




Copic colours:
Skin: E04/13/11/21/00/000, R20
Hair: E37/35/33
Tunic: B99/95/93/91
Wings: C3/1/00
Bow: E49/47/44/43 and E15, Y38/35
Background: BG01, B00/000, blender

To continue floating on the MiC Love Balloon, head on over to Delphine, but before you go, don't forget to leave a comment as I may have one of the lucky hidden prizes! Random winners will be announced on the MiC Store Blog on Monday 10th Feb, so stay tuned. In case you get lost, here is the complete hop list:

                    Amy (you are here)
