Whimsical Flowers for my Friend

Hello!

Firstly, I had a special post on posted on before Christmas. I asked if I could send a card to one of you and so many of you said yes! Thank you so much! You gave such a warm Christmas gift!

I randomly chose the recipient with the help of random number generator and the number given to me was 32! 


The 32nd comment was left by Teresa Doyle! I didn't find your email address linked to you comment, so if this message finds you, would you be so kind and send me an email with you mailing address. It would be my pleasure to send you some happy mail. 


Today, I'm also at the Altenew blog today to do a video by request. About a year ago, I made a guest design post in the Altenew blog and on the second post I used Whimsical flowers and coloured them with coloured pencils. Since I started to make videos, a tutorial how I coloured the flowers was asked, and I did made it twice and twice I got my head on the way while filming.. I mean it just didn't popped in and out - it kinda stayed! I used to be one of those that colour a nose attached to the paper - since filming I had to learn out of it.

So now it is finally here:





This video tutorial is the first after the three month long break in filming and editing, so there are some funny things, so please bear with me. You can watch it here or in HD in YouTube.
