Morning Coops, lovely card. Your colouring is fantastic, l wish l could get those effects with my Promarkers. I try to get depth into my images but they certainly don't look anything like yours :).

Hope you've managed to get to the bottom of your washing mountain. A woman's work, heh?

Big hugs Rach xx
