Molly Tag

I love a day when I can play, and this afternoon I was playing with alcohol markers. I have quite a lot, but I confess I've never really used them 'properly', i.e. graded shading etc. So this was my first attempt at some semblance of shading. I'm rather pleased. I used a mixture of Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs.

The image is from Molly Blooms, isn't she cute :-) With a 'cute' challenge over at Sweet Stampin' Christmas she fits perfectly, and I used the 'cute' page out of an old dictionary as a background, deliberately slicing the FMS sketch in the right place to highlight the word.

By my count this tag could fit about seven challenges, but to play by the rules I have to pick four. Two down - Sunday Stamper (Make a topper) and That Craft Place (Use tags) use up my quota. However, Molly may make a reprise later as I have a second coloured image in my workroom that's too adorable to leave hanging around for long.
