A little push

Hey Peeps :)


I set myself a bit of a challenge with this card. It started with some papers my lovely friend Delphine sent me. They are beautiful, and my plan was to use at least one sheet from the pad, although, it didn't work out in the end.

Anyway, the colours from the pad inspired me to reach for the purples, which, despite the fact I love them, I rarely use. I decided to print the image in grey, it's a little too dark to be No Lines, but they are softer than black. And to make it even harder on myself, I thought I'd go for a monotone look. Simples.

Next. Air Brush. I got an Air Brush for Christmas and the Air Can ran out last week, just in time for me to use some birthday money on an Air Compressor. So, with new toys in The Flufferie, they also had to be used.

I Air Brushed the background, then added some Colourless Blender Splatters. I don't have any Re-Inkers in Purple, so I had to improvise and use Dye Ink for the darker splatters, but it still works I think.

Then just to colour the entire image in just five markers. Like I say, simples!

Oh stop it! How much talent can one person have? I'm sure you must have enough for six, so you could pass a little bit this way and still have some left for you. There is only one word available for this hun -FANDABBITASTICLYAWESOME!
