Crafty Catz Challenge #97 - Metal & Lace DT

Morning everyone, hope you are all well and looking forward to the bank holiday weekend if you are in the UK.  I have finally managed to make a card this week, it has been ages since I have done one for my blog as I have been working on a big Christmas magazine commission and with the kids at home my crafting time is very limited.  This week's card is for the challenge over at Crafty Catz, Carol has chosen the theme of 'Metal and Lace' this week and I really enjoyed making this card.  The image is one I have had for a while from Lili of the Valley but hadn't inked up and I coloured her with Promarkers and tried to add a bit of highlight with my pencils, I have a set of Polychromos but have never really used them as I need something to blend with and to be honest they scare me lol! but one day I will be brave and use them properly.  I love this colour combo, the papers are some I just got from Quixotic cards, they are Memory Box Brioche and I love them and know I will be ordering more soon.  I have got lots of digi papers I am desperate to use but my printer is very naughty at the moment and needs replacing, it has for months it I am honest so as soon as I get one I will be trying out those papers.  Anyway have a great weekend and thank you for taking the time to visit.
