Good evening all.i hope you are all well a huge thanks for all the comments on my wow card earlier.i am now back with just a me playing card.i have tried colouring with my distress inks.lol.no laughing now and i made an error when cutting out my image which means that the script i stamped as an overlay is now squiffy and also my glossy accents is slightly opaque on one little bit.

I used my $50 win on Simon Says Stamp to put towards the DI pens, and I cant wait to try them.

I know I will still use my PM's, but like you say, its nice to play with different stuff and get different effects. This is a gorgeous card hun, great image and colours and the glossy accents really pop :)
