Sassy Cheryl's Show Me #87

I am so fortunate to have a Copic stash that is filled with a rainbow of colours. I have popped the cap off a few of these markers, but I really haven't used very much ink!

We have beautiful display units at our store that contain all the markers for sale. When we ordered the acrylic shelves, one of them arrived and it was smashed. We had it replaced and put this one in our storage room.

A while back, I was organizing my craft room and remembered seeing the smashed shelf and decided I would put it to use. The banged up corner does not really bother me and it holds my markers nicely, so I can see all the colours and keep them in order.

Through Pinterest, I found Sassy Cheryl's Digi Stamps and immediately fell in love with the images. This happens often and I never really bother purchasing anything because I know I will be disappointed in my colouring skills and won't like the end result......therefore it will be money waisted.

Last night, I took the plunge and purchased Sweet Little Avery! I imported the image into my Silhouette and used the 'print & cut' feature and ended up with 4 of these lovely printed images. I figured I would need 4 of them for practice.

There was a sample of the image already coloured on Sassy Cheryl's website, so I used that as a guide for choosing my colours.

And here is Sweet Little Avery......brought to life. I am so impressed with myself! I have been watching Joanne colour and have picked up a few tips from her. Clearly, I was paying attention.

It is not perfect and I still have lots to learn. I already know what I am going to do with Avery. She is way to cute to just leave her standing on my craft table.
