two tone?...


Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and happy...at long last the really icy spell here seems to have gone thank goodness mind it is still freezing cold but we cant have everything can we...I didn't get much done at all yesterday I made the mistake of opening up a long closed box of crafting things and found a set of Marvy pens...of course when you are faced with colouring pens what on earth is a girl to do lol...I had a little bit of a play of course and decided to try experimenting with colouring two tone...I'm not sure it worked what do you think...I used my distress inks but added a bit of different Marvy pen colour to add a tinge of other colours to the distress inks...I couldn't bring myself to try a two tone face or hair though thank goodness...let me know what you think and if you think it worked or not, now be honest my feeling wont be dented I promise and I would really like to know...right now onto my card for today and the this cute little sweetie I chose for my experiments is from Sugar Nellie and is called Sweet As Candy...shes a digi and a bargain too and like all Home Grown range shes a dream to colour...I teamed her up with more of the amazing papers from the Kaisercraft - Curiosity 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I love the colours in this pad don't you they are muted but really strong, does that make any sense at all lol...everything except the gold leaves which I found in the same box as the pens is from the paper pad...the fab sketch is from the Sketch Saturday Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Challenges 4 everybody Challenge and 4 Crafty Girls Challenge too...I wont be around for a couple of days as things are busy here and I'm still not feeling 100% so have to concentrate on one thing at a time...no multitasking for me for a bit lol...whatever your up to today I hope its a relaxing one for you all
