"Button & Bow"

Hello Blog friends, I truly hope those days at the weekend were not our summer!!!
Dull day here although thankfully it did not rain even if thunder could be heard over the hills.
The sun did come out in the evening which was nice to see if still rather cool out.
 Today`s card is one I made after I had a play with colouring.  I like colouring but I am not that good at it.  My eye is almost back to normal not that it helped my colouring in any way!!!!.  This is a D`Arcys Digital Image I have had for quite a while.  I was looking on the computer for something else and spied the File for Digital Images ......I have loads but never seem to use them.   Another note to "me" use them when you get back from holiday.

Base card 6 x 6 white card
Backing Paper from my favourite Rob Adams CD The papers on this CD are so usable
Image coloured using Copics, very lightly distressed round the edge
I added the border under the image adding ribbon plus a Button & Bow

I have a lot to learn about colouring when I see so many wonderful cards done by all the talented people out there.  However I am quite pleased with what I have done here.

Thank you for calling by I really appreciate that you do that.
That`s it for today, see you all soon

  7. Very nice Patricia. I've never done any colouring (except when I was knee high to a grasshopper) and its not something that grabs me to do (I have no patience) but I do admire those of you that have the patience and skill to come up with these lovely images.
