 Good Afternoon Everyone,

It's been far too hot for me these last few days and when I started to use my copics one or two of them seemed to be really sticky and not working properly. I'm not sure if it is the heat that affected them, but  I decided to spend Sunday afternoon cleaning them all.  It must have taken me about 3 hours!

Instead of going back to the copics yesterday, I had a play with my Zig clean colour brush markers and this is what I finished up with.

This is a first inking of this Simon Says Stamp set.  I stamped in Versafine black on Bristol Smooth and then clear embossed it.  I've just used one pink marker for the flowers and blue grey for the leaves.  I very tentatively, because I've not done it before,  tried some ink splattering with a small brush and grey ink.  I added two sentiments from LOTV and a few silver sequins.

I would like to enter:
