Sparkly Delphinium

Hiya folks!

It's the weekend, and the sun is out here in NE Scotland - yeay!! Need to go kill some weeds today, so I'll be doing that shortly.

My card for today has been made following this week's sketch at Midnight Madness:

Turned out to be just the right shape for one of my new doodles, the Delphinium, available for purchase in my shop

I have coloured it with my usual watercolour pencils, and have layered it with foam pads, and added some clear glitter to some of the petals.

The swirly paper is from Funky Hand, and behind the image is a paper from a Joanna Sheen disc, Botanicals. Not that you can see it much, but I just loved the blue colour of it. The ribbon and bows are from the stash. Some folk have asked how I tie my bows so neatly. No secret folks, loads of fiddling and tweeking with the help of a pencil through the loops. No fancy bow tying blocks or anything, except a few blue words sometimes!! LOL

I have a couple of other challenges to enter this into. First at The Pink Elephant, where the theme is 'Nature', and then at Digital Tuesday, where they have a colour theme of 'Blue, White and one other', green in this case.

OK then, off to murder some weeds now then! Have a great day folks!
