Cough, splutter....

... phew, excuse me whilst I just blow the dust off my blog.  Yup, its been a while all because I fell out with my promarkers and my mojo just upped an left on its summer holidays (plus been having days out with the boys)  thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it lol.

I do have a couple of cards I could blog, but am going to hang on for suitable challenges :-), but, here's a card I've made just to have in my stock pile (although really I need a couple of mens cards!).

I have used one of Janeys lovely designs - the Geum, and this was a joy to colour:

I have printed the image onto Rymans card stock and decoupaged the main flower, here's a photo to try and show:

To colour the image I used three colours on the petals: Apricot, Oatmeal & Vanilla.  For the stem I used Moss and Olive green and outlined the image with cool grey 1.  I then die cut the image with my nesties, added some bling & ribbon from my stash.  The dp is papermania from the pastel collection which I matted onto some pearlised card and layered onto my Craftwork Cards card blank.

I would like to enter this into:

Papertake weekly - Anything goes
Passion for Promarkers - Clean & Simple.

Thanks for looking and thank you to Janey for being patient :-) xxx
