I've been off this week but it's been so hot on an evening I've not been able to do much (keeping windows open and light on is a good combination for bug attraction).  I have had chance to have a play around with my polychromos pencils for a change.  I tend to colour mainly in Copics these day so please be kind when you see my coloured image.  I definitely need to do some colouring classes for pencils!

After colouring him I decided to fussy cut him.

I wanted some background papers to match his colouring, I've gone with blues / aquas from Lemoncraft and 13Arts.  All the design papers have been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.

Here he is mounted onto those layered papers, I've also added a glittery silver star and three tiny silver star charms.  The sentiment was made up from Tim Holtz stickers.

Back to my Copics next time I think.......
