a time for giving


Hello. Autumn has well and truly arrived, we've had four seasons in one day today - rain, wind, blue skies and even a little bit of thunder! Anyway all my magazine commissions are 'in the bag' so I had a little crafty me time. 

There are so many different projects and techniques on my to do list - get my gelli plate back out, make a start on my art doodle book, have another go at the inky arty stuff with all those stencils I had to have! But, I decided I didn't have that much time! So I coloured up this little Sugar Nellie cutie and made a simple card, leaving the experimental stuff to another day!

Once again I used shades of the one colour, I'm liking this look at the mo' and saves me hurting my brain trying to work out colour combinations!!

LOVE this card Liz. Hope you entered it in the Sugar Bowl. Their challenge is back up and running. Utterly gorgeous image, one of my fav's from the new fairies. Love your tone on tone colouring too. Hugs, Wends x (Did a little squeal, when I saw your cards in a recent mag I had delivered to NZ. Takes a while to get them, but oh my goodness, still can't live without my inspiration fix! Loved the cards.)
