Friday Focus

Or should I say Friday Out Of Focus! cos that's what I've just noticed now that I've uploaded my photos,it is late in the day though,so go and have a sip of something naughty and you might not even notice lol!
I thought I'd check out some colouring demos today and this is the result,that Suzanne Dean sure is a talented lady! If I was half as good as her I'd be happy! My Gorjuss girl is Poppy fields by Sugar Nellie which I coloured using Copics. I wanted to follow a sketch for this card but hadn't an oval nestie so instead used my corner punch to round off the corners of my trimmed image.I'm still keeping to my quest to use only remnants and not to cut into any new sheets of papers or bazzil so the flowery blue paper is from the remains of pack Pink Parfait by Forever Friends.

I found some long forgotten velum that visited my Martha Stewart edge punch,I also cut some flowers from it and layered them onto the same flower cut in white. I added some self adhesive pearls to the centres of the flowers and shaped them.I treated myself to one of those Inkssentials thingys that you use with Distress inks the other day and thought today would be a good time to christen it,don't know how I've managed without one up till now,I think it's going to get lots of use.

I told you it was late in the day,I've talked about these flowers before I got here!so just in case you'd like a closer look,here they are!

I'm using this card for a few challenges:-

Hmmm - I didn't drink anything naughty, or nice for that matter and your pictures look good to me. Your card is lovely in these soft shades of blue. I love the flowers, the vellum was great for this and the pearl centers are the perfect finishing touch. Great job! Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
