CDD August Release Roundup!

The August release is now live in the shop and how adorable is it. What's your favourite? I coloured up the Favorite Nut and Grateful Trolls for the release. Here's a look back over my two sneak peek cards. The first day of peeks was the new Favorite Nut set and I couldn't resist that cheeky little squirrel with his acorn house.

I have been loving my copic coloured backgrounds so much recently (also I was colouring on holiday in the south of France with very limited supplies). So I decided to make the most of my copics and do a bit of freehand drawing for  the background to create a cute scene card. I'm really pleased with this one  especially as I had packed so last minute I had forgot some of my favourite colour combinations and then my e35 ran out of ink eeep. You know what though I found some different browns I liked hello e13 and it turned out great. It got me out of my comfort zone and also showed me that I don't need to have the exact colours as someone else just find something that works for you!

My second sneak peek card is from the Grateful Trolls stamp set again as I had limited supplies I decided to colour up a fun copic coloured scene card. I love the browns, oranges and reds of autumn they have to be one of my favourite seasonal cards to make. I went to cold colours on the fox and troll though so that the colours would pop and not blend into the background so much. I finished it off with a few orange and red sequins.
I hope you liked my peek cards and I cant wait to share with you my other cards I made for the August release.
