Designed To Colour

For those of you out there who love to colour in any medium...........Copic, pencils, watercolours, paints etc. you will probably be aware of  new magazine that was released a few months ago called Designed To Colour.

Designed to Color

This little gem is dedicated to the world of colouring in any form, and is a great read for anyone remotely interested in that field.

I couple of months ago I was fortunate enough to have a card accepted for publication......ME........WOW a first for sure (of course I'd like to say that's because it was the first thing I've ever submitted! (lol))

Anyhow, I've since received my own copy in print, and the allotted time has passed, which means I can post the card on my blog, so here goes.

Now I don't mind admitting it's a pretty simple card but there's a story that goes with it.

I made and submitted this card pretty close to the deadline, day before I believe.........I know what you're thinking......"Me, last minute.......surely not!", but I only discovered the magazine on this day and decided what the heck I may as well give it a go.

So I dug out my Copic's, made the card and sent it that afternoon.  I was thrilled when it was accepted but then felt a little guilty.  I almost wanted to e-mail them back explaining I should probably do better!  Still I was/am super excited and will take it no matter what.

The digi for this one btw is from By Lori Designs - quite appropriate really as these were the very first images I ever coloured!  Papers are from Authentique.

If you'd like to check out the magazine, head over to their blog where you'll find a free preview of the latest issue (I'll be making an appearance in that too!:).

Have a great day and I'll see you soon,
