Little K Smith said...

Hi Coops
Oh this is fab card! Love how you've coloured the image, must give this a go myself. Gorgeous papers too.
Cute piccy of your cat too :)

Jules said...

Hi Coops

What a great card - love your layout and distressing very much.

I too love working in black and white (plus the grey tones inbetween).

The strange thing is though although most of blogland seem to love cards using these colours the general public do not seem quite so keen. Quite often folks will say to me "but no black - it reminds me of funerals"!!.

No accounting for taste is there!

Enjoy what remains of your Sunday.

Love Jules xx

jules said...

Hi Nic love the card! it's stunning oh! you are clever!!!

Vicki said...

Oh gosh Coops, I think this is bl***y brilliant (oopppssss sorry just got a lil excited there hun, it must be the affect this card just had on me), no seriously hun I'm blown away, your colouring is fab, just by using similar shades of Copics, the end result looks amazing. I may have to give this a go, hope you don't mind me pinching some inspiration from you.
