Fuchsia Fun

I was recently asked to make a card for a friends daughter-in-law and, as I used an image from Sheepski Designs, I uploaded it to their Facebook Challenge.  I didn't blog it at the time.  It was just one of those things.  Imagine my surprise when, not only did I win, I was asked to be a guest designer for this month's challenge. Andrea kindly offered me a free digi of my choice (as well as my winning image) to create my card.  I chose this gorgeous Fuchsia and I had so much fun colouring it.  It turned out wonderfully.  Anyway, the challenge was to use layers so I did.  Here it is.

I coloured it with my spectrum noirs but added some finer detail with inktense pencils.  I'm so pleased  with the results.  If you'd like to join in the fun pop over and join the Sheepski Designs Facebook Page.  

If you are curious to see the card I won with here it is.

Thanks for reading.
