Simply Saturday

What a great afternoon to be crafting!  The sky has been threatening rain, but it has held off for most of the day...but still a good excuse to be in my office :)
I've actually combined three challenges today, and I can't believe it!
A Theme :
Touch Twin Markers Blog - Birthday with coloured matching ribbon 

A Sketch with iSpy Sketches :
And a Colour Challenge from ColourQ :



A little while back I came across some markers from Shinhanart called Touch Twin Brush markers and I've been waiting for them to arrive in Australia...and they have!  I've been stalking one of my suppliers for ages waiting for them to come in so I could give them a go.  They are very similar to Copics and blend just as easily!  The colours I've used for the balloons and the ribbon are : R16, R15, YR33, Y37, B68.  I don't have a lot of colours just yet, but like any collections I'm sure this will grow!!
Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a fantastic remainder of the weekend :)
Hugs for now,
