Sarah said...

Hi Nic, well this one is just amazing! Stunning image, perfectly coloured and I love the colour scheme. Tho I do tend towards the pastely (is that a word!) colours. Love the little corner on the edge of the image. Sarah

PS, Thanks for the advice on my blog - I find that it's the purples and yellows that I'm having a lot of trouble with. Will have to try the white pen trick.
