Make it Colourful Challenge ~ {Black with a hint of red}



Make it Colourful challenge this week is Black with a hint of Red

So I had a dig about in my images that friends have sent me to see if I could find any inspiration & this one just jumped right out at me.
After I had coloured it I wasn't sure what to do next. I just couldn't see a busy card so I've gone for clean & simple using SU's vintage vogue flowers stamp.
I have coloured the image using promarkers.

Thank you for stopping by today, your comments always make me smile & I appreciate every one of them.
Hugs

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁
