WOW has it really been than long

Hi Everyone,

I apologise for the long delay since my last time flies when your not paying attention. I have moved house since my last post and this one had a room specifically for a craft room, well that was the plan at any rate. Queensland being Queensland and the fact i only have air conditioning down stairs now means i no longer have a dining area and a rather spread out craft area LOL.

I struggled with making cards for a while and the more i tried to force it the worse it became, i guess i had the card makers equivalent of writers block so i left things for a while and recently came back to it and finding the hobby fun once again which is great.

For this card i wanted something bright and fun. I got the colour scheme from a friend at Docrafts, not colours i would think to put together but i really love the effect and may be a little more experimental in the future. Hannah Lynn images are amazing, although they take time to colour they really lend themselves to any colour scheme and it seemed perfect for this card.

I coloured my image first which took some time and then i mounted this on yellow and then link card. I then cut a yellow square and mounted this on pink card, i made my black card base and then cute a pink square. I must confess that i spent a wee while moving my pieces around the get the affect i wanted and i really wanted both the pink and yellow to show and this is how my current layout was born, it wasn't the initial plan but i often find my plan changes half a dozen times when making a card. I finished her off with a few black gems because with the bright colour scheme i didn't want the card to be too "busy" or detract from the gorgeous image.

For this card i used:

Black, pink and yellow card stock all from my stash
White Copic Card
Hannah Lynn Digital Stamp
Black gems
Gelly roll pens
Copics - E13, E15, E17, E93, Y08, E50, RV06
Copic Spica Pens - Clear & Red

As always please let me know what you think or any suggestions you might have?

Love Jox
