Encouraged by En!

Well the ever so talented En (Enfys) is having a wee little Letraset competition on her blog at the moment, so I had to enter! I have coloured a squillion images to make into cards and then found none really inspired me any further . . . not a good start me thinks. Any hoo, I finally settled on the Pink Cat Studio digi image which was one of the images I had coloured in my frenzy and a "quick" card idea popped into my head . . . phew!

Papers: Polka Doodles (Paper Botique 3)
Image: Pink Cat Studio
Sentiment: SU
String: from stash

I made a simple birthday present by layering plain and decorative papers and as finishing touch some manly string . . . lol . . The image was coloured with Promarkers adding subtle white gel highlights. It has then been double mounted and placed in front of the present . . . a really quick card to make once I had settled on an idea in my head!

Promarker "blended" colours used:
Powder Blue & Pastel Blue
Forest Green & Pear Green
Ice Grey 1 & Cool Grey 4
Tan & Cinnamon

I can't get the photo I took of the blended colours to look like the colours (!) so will try scanning the swatch in and then add it to this post . . . bear with me as I have to try and remember how to use our scanner!

Why not have a colouring session and enter En's giveaway.
