LC Sponsor Spotlight

Happy Wednesday! Today Lollipop Crafts is spotlighting our sponsor this week, Robyn's Fetish
This adorable bear is called Charlie Christmas Bear, and you can find him here. He's colored up in Copics, but I ran into some marker trouble this time... see the right side of his face? As I was putting on the darker brown (E55) for some shadows, it started to get weird on me. It became sort of oily, and couldn't blend with the other colors. It doesn't look as bad IRL, but this picture sure picked it up! I thought my marker was drying out, but I checked it was good, but added a little more ink anyways.  Has anyone else have that happen? and is there a remedy for this? Would love to hear any advice on this! :D

So back to the card... it's a small sized card... only 3.5x3.5. Great way to use up some more scraps and makes a perfect little gift card. Used Spellbinders circle and scallop circles for the dies, and handcut a small banner flag for the sentiment, which is Amy R Winter Sentiments.

Head on over to the Lollipop Crafts blog to see what a few other team mates have made to share. Find out more on our wonderful sponsor, and check out the awesome prize for the current challenge!

Thanks for stopping by...
Have a great day! ;D

Aww, so cute Mimi! I love that image, he's sweet! And the coloring looks pretty cool actually, like fur. lol. Sometimes our markers get like that. I've read somewhere that you can soak the nib in some alcohol, I've tried it on a few of my markers that have done that and it seemed to work. It's just scary when it happens cause you never know when it will. Maybe you can check the Copic website, I'm sure they have something on it there.
Great job today hon!!
