New Home Card with Julia Spiri Images

Afternoon folks! This week I have been so busy that frustratingly I've barely had time to colour, so today, with the rest of my family busy out in the garden digging and generally doing Spring like things, I have taken the opportunity to enjoy some peace and quality time inside with my pens and finally finish this card that I started two weeks ago.

To create the card I have merged two gorgeous digis, Little Gnome and The Mushroom House from Julia Spiri in Microsoft Word, and added a sentiment. I printed it out, and created a background scene, using various techniques that I have learned following online colouring lessons from Kit and Clowder. If you aren't aware of Kit and Clowder, and want to improve your own colouring I can't recommend these lessons highly enough. Alyce , the creator and tutor is so helpful and encouraging and has really helped me feel confident in my colouring abilities. You can also follow her Facebook page and join in the colouring community. Whether you are a class member or not there is loads to learn from that page alone, and always lots of fun competitions going on too. 

Talking of Facebook, you can also find Julia Spiri's page here. Julia also runs regular challenges on her blog so if you are a blogger stop by and join in the fun there too. The challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist, and you don't even have to use one of her images to enter ( but why wouldn't you? They are amazing!!) .

I am entering this in the following challenges:
