In an English County Garden number 2

Hi, just a quick post this morning, as I have one hundred and one things to do today...

Depending on how I go, I might post again today, then again I might not :-D

Anyway, on Tuesday night I  was at my scrapbooking class at Scrapbook Sisters and was all on edge for the appeal the following day (STILL have not heard, getting annoyed now!!)  You know what it's like when you can't focus, and I probably annoyed the hell out of poor Louise who had the misfortune of sitting next to me... sorry Louise.  Anyway, I did one layout, and then got all distracted.

And the papers were singing "Card, card, card" to me... but I didn't have any images with me... or my copics... humph.

But the girls sell copies of their digi's in the shop, and I had inks a plenty in my bag, so I made a quick card, using the inks and a brush to stipple the colour on.

I've never coloured like this before, and I quite like the soft look it gives.  I've no idea if this is a proper technique, or if I was doing it correctly :-)  I wasn't that fussy about keeping to the lines of the image, just using them as a general guide for where to apply colour

You can't see very well, but there are some dark green stickles in the centre of the flowers and glossy accents here and there on the water. 

I'll post the layout later :-)

Sue - you didn't annoy me, but fascinated me in class with your speed of working and how this card came together in front of my eyes. Looks as good on the blog as in real-life. Fingers crossed for the appeal xxx
