Let's Go Fly a Kite!

Lovely weather we are having! And so fitting for this card which is for the Lily Boo Too Challenge for April which is:

Spring Colours - Yellow, Pale Green and Blossom

I've used papers from Retro Fun Word Book download from Funky Hand with an image I got as part of the Special 50/50 Digital Crafting Group from Soft Pencil. Isn't it such a lovely image?

I've coloured it with my Promarkers and you can now see that my range of colours has been extended - I now have 3 packs (and a fourth is on it's way!) The sky has been coloured with watercolour pencils as the blue I have was a little too dark.

I've added organza ribbon underneath the bottom of the image and fastened it with a matching button and some fancy shaped wire. Only because it was an off cut of ribbon and only just the right length!!

  • Backing papers: Retro Fun Wordbook download from Funky Hand
  • Image: Soft Pencil coloured mainly with Promarkers and a touch of watercolour pencils
  • Everything else: My stash
