Good evening folks, well so much for me getting back into blogging hey...seems like as soon as I get back into it then life gets in the way........ again....!!!  Anyways I hope you all happy and well.

This card has driven me bonkers, simply because I thought I give those Spectrum Noir pens a try, just to compare the difference between them and Copics, spent ages (as we do) colouring this image, then putting the card together, I was just tidying up my desk area ready to photograph this card, when silly ole me only dropped my brushed corduroy ink pad on the image, hence the big splodge underneath my watermark.....d'ya think I had the patience to make!!!
