Friday Sketchers + ASFOS

Hi everyone hope your having a lovely day. Its good to see the rain has finally stopped after waking up to a massive thunder storm this morning - so what better way to spend the day than dabbling in a little crafting.

I finally got to a make a card for A Spoonful Of Sugar - 3 Ribbons and this weeks Friday Sketchers.

I'm not one to colour an image before I pick the papers, but I was experimenting at the time with me new Pro Markers and as she has been sitting around for the past couple of days I finally decided to use her - but then I hit a wall.... what papers to use !!! I'll never do that again... Im sure we've all said that, lol. Anyway after much delibration I finally came up with this:



I wish my photography skills were better, as when I use red it never comes out on the pic as it looks in real life - the red is a much deeper red, and not so bright.



Not my usual colour scheme, but I had fun with it anyway and was happy with the end result.

Have a great day everyone, TFL x
