New Beginnings ....




My first card of the New Year !  To be honest I have been so busy that I have had no time to craft.  Anyway here it is.






Very simply done by stamping the main image and sentiment in Memento black ink first on a 5 x 5 inch white card blank.




Then smooshing some lemon yellow Impress dye ink over the main image direct from the inkpad.  I have coloured the leaves with a lime green alcohol ink marker and just gone round the edges with a squiggly line with a 0.1 mm Micron pen.
