Senimental Sundays - work it out!

Hello everyone

Welcome to an extended weekend!  Over at Sentimental Sundays today we have a new challenge.  This one entitled work it out.  This has been inspired by so many of us that realize its only a few weeks until summer holidays begin, and most of us don't have the beach body we'd like, so this is a little challenge to try and motivate us.  I am however content with not having a beach body, but enjoying to occasional glass of wine and a cake.  Maintaining a beach body is far too much like hard work!!

Any way - challenge is sponsoerd by

And here's my card made with one of their fab images

I printed her twice, once onto smooth card for colouring, and again on a piece of copy paper adding the computer generated sentiment.  I coloured the image on the smooth card using promarkers.  Then I fussy cut out (leaving a very slight edges all the way around) and sprayed it with Stick and spray.  I then used this as a mask over the coloured image and used Dusty Concorde and Victorian velvet distress inks to create a aura effect.  removed the mask and et voila!

Hope you like her.

Thanks for dropping by, please leave me a message if you do!

Lots of love
