I have to confess that the idea for today's cards is not my own but that of my husband - this blogging / crafting is really going to his head. I even think that he is now considering himself an expert LOL!!!
Whilst I was too unwell to craft he suggested that, when I was feeling a little better, I could make three identical cards in three different colourways - one black & white, one sepia and one in colour. Now, obviously, I need to humour him and keep him sweet - we don't want him turning feral !!! Besides, I actually thought it was rather a good idea, but don't go telling him ;-)
(I don't need telling - understated genius is a curse that I have learned to accept !! OK, back to my box...)
So, now that I am regaining my health I thought I would give it a go. Here's what I've created.
I decided to use this lovely Sarah Kay image by Stampavie - it's one of Simon's favourites!!! I used my Promarkers for this one.
Here's the sepia version, I used my Promarkers for this one too.
And now we have the coloured version, which I coloured using my Copic Markers.
