you can learn something new every day


Still revisiting my neglected stamps , its really worth doing as you fall in love all over again. 
I love this society lady and had real fun colouring her in trying to achieve more than just a black blob for her clothing. Coloured with promarkers and used the blending pen quite a bit too. A simple palate of black grey and magenta pink with some sparkle added to her jewellery with sakura gel pens.
The rest of the colour pop comes from the new something I learned from a tutorial on MFP for a layered mountain card and one I will be reusing as its a great way to add a colour pop like here or an extra dimension too. Not sure my photos do it justice though but you get the idea.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

(I know my sentiment isn't separate or on top of my image but hope artistic license is ok)

always playing with paper -photo inspiration
 (I chose the colours and fashion books)

The paper girls- paper girls

MFP -layered mountain card



Penny's -anything goes
