Hi Everyone! You may already be aware that I have been having some problems with Facebook treating my blog as inappropriate or a spam URL. It's been 3 weeks now and in the that time I decided to set up a new blog on Wordpress for a short-term fix. After a while I decided that maybe a move to Wordpress was a good long-term plan! The new blogger.com interface is pretty awful imho and whilst moving everything between platforms is hard work, I think the results on Wordpress look much more professional than here. Would you like to sign up to my new blog? Currently I am keeping this blog in case it's ever released from Facebook Cancel Prison but I won't be posting here again until then.

Hi everyone! I am back with a Dr.Digi DT Friday, had a week off as I was on my holibobs, a socially-distanced, well-detolled mainly outdoor holibob! Whilst I was there I coloured up Videogame Vince, but didn't get very long each evening and as the seaside air rather knocks me out! lol! Here he is...

(After creating a topper using the digistamp and a sentiment (in East Coast Stationery font) I printed it out directly onto kraft card, ready to colour. I reduce the darkness of the stamp so I get a "no lines colouring" look.)
1. Initial white stage, solid white colouring over the non-fur parts, white lines over the fur parts.
2. Coloured solid nose and sunglasses.
3. First golden layer of fur (a background colour to give golden warmth to everything above).
4. Using a light brown to add some shade.
5. Using two shades of darker brown to increase the depth of shade and provide definition. Also using white to increase highlights.
6. Decided he needed a mat! Had to redo the paws afterwords and decide to add some claws.
I layered him onto yellow card and then background paper from the stash. Few bits of bling, also from the stash.

Sharing a pair of cards today featuring two of the newly released stamp sets from Barbara Sproatmeyer! She is one of the artists/illustrators at Whimsy Stamps and Beau (and later Colton) are two new Polka Dot Pals released today! Both with an artsy vibe!
Here is Beau, she has spent all day decorating her brother's (Colton!) art studio. I like to invent a little narrative as I colour. I know, it's bonkers. There is a clue to the geographical location of this studio within the picture!
