I is for ......

A very good afternoon to you all. 

Thank you for coming over to see me and thank you for your comments 
on my blog. They are all read and I get so much joy from them. 

Here is my project for today. 

Although I have been busy with my "egg decorations" I have had time to
do a tag today. 

I have used Sheena Douglass stamp with Aqua pens first to stamp the image

then I used Alcohol pens to colour in the flower. I tried to use water first with the 
watercolour but that did not work (how I wanted) 

So Alcohol pens were great, blending in all the shades to create this flower. 

I think I may be converted.... to these pens.

Added some distress ink, left on my brush to colour the background. 

So I would like to enter this for the following 


Thank you for coming over and I look forward to your visit again. 

I will post my photos of yesterdays walk in the next few days just need to re size them


OOOOO just seen I can now put emoji into my post. 


Best get on and see about tea, cuppa is calling
