Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!
Welcome to this weeks Colour Create where Tab has chosen the colours of brown, beige and cream. What a delicious combination! Makes me think of coffee and cream or a box of chocolates!

The extra option this week is distressing..just up my street :)

I decided this week to colour my Gorjuss Girl with pro-markers..eek..I was a bit scared! I think I managed OK but just with a little bit of bleeding. The paper I have is perfect for my prismas but possibly a bit too thin for promarkers. Anyway ..a note to self..use them more often!

I also had a wee go at hand stitching. First time I have tried this and I love the texture it gives. Will definetely be doing this again and it didn't take half as long as I thought it would!

My apologies for the photo..not brilliant but the light was just pants! Dreary dull and misty!

Will be back midweek when I hope to catch up with y'all.

Hugs,
Judy xx

Hi Judy
I love the feel of this card. The colours are so subtle and beautiful colouring ! The stitching does give it a different dimension and I always wondered if this would take too long.
