Lets go Shopping!

Welcome to a new week.

I am on count down now as I go away Wednesday for 2 weeks in the sun.

This card was inspired the photo this week on Inspired by. At first I wanted to go with a Wedding and hearts theme but then I remembered my new Kanban stamps that arrived last week. I had seen this card by my fellow Addicted to CAS DT member Nonni and just loved the stamp. Nonni was kind enough to direct me where to buy this and within a few days I had the set ready to be inked!
And then along came the Inspired By photo, giving the chance to have a play! I was inspired by the colours but mainly by the line of pink dresses and the pink lips. And here is my card:

I had a play with doing some colouring, a skill I am really trying to improve. I have used a mixture of promarkers and SU markers. Colouring is not one of my best techniques but I do find it very relaxing. It is quite strange really as I catch myself humming whilst I colour. So I may not be so good at it but I enjoy it and find it totally absorbing! This turned out not so bad and will be a fun card for a girlfriend.
I am also going to enter this into the 'for a girl' challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge and the 'mad for markers' challenge at Crafting When We Can

Here is the inspiration photo:

That's me for today, have a fun Monday x
