Life is better with Gin

Do you fancy a giggle?
Head over to this week's Less Is More challenge, where the theme is 'Humour'.
Here's my entry...



This cute girl, is part of a Stamping Bella couple - you can just make out where their arms were linked - but shhhh - don't tell anyone   :-)

Sequins seem to be popular right now, and I found some lurking at the bottom of my sewing box.
This meant I had to go with red - not my favourite Copics to use, but I think I've discovered the trick.
When colouring, I left a narrow border all along the inside of my image. Then, when I had finished blending, I just went back and carefully filled in the border. 
And it worked - no bleeding outside the image :-)
