Art Deco!

Yay, Bank Holiday weekend here again in the UK, not that it matters cus Nige is working today & Monday. But I'm hoping to drag both of the girlies out for a nice walk by the canal on Monday if the weather stays as nice as it is today!!

Anyhoos, today's card is my DT creation for My Time To Craft, where the theme is...


I decided to go all brave & put my big girl pants on. I used my Promarkers/Flexmarkers for the first time in over a year!!! Other than skin on people I haven't used them for nearly 18 mths. I did think about selling them, but decided to keep them as both of the girlies are taking A level art so they might come in handy. Even though they both have my Spectrum Noirs lol!!
Anyhoos don't be to hard on my colouring xx

Sorry about the shadows, but the sun was a shining!!
There is lots of glittery sparkles on her dress but as per you can't see it.....argh!!!
