Am I wishing for winter after Perth's past few weeks of scorching temperatures? No (well maybe when it's still over 30C at night but mostly no) - this month's challenge on the Spectrum Noir blog is The Winter Blues!

Here's my blue girl - just in time.

  1. Sensational colouring Jill! Love the placement of the fence too really works well. Tongue in cheek with the 50 being 'old' lol knocking on that door myself soon!!
    Hope you are enjoying the heat!! Angela xx

  2. Hi Jill,
    Congratulations on winning the December challenge. Your card is really cute. JIL

  3. What ink and paper do you use? Mine keep bleeding.
    Your card is wonderful! You are very talented.

    1. Memento ink as recommended (Tuxedo Black) and blending card which we sell at Crafty Capers. I recently read a suggestion that the ink needs time to dry (I had not found that necessary myself).

  4. A number of our customers at Crafty Capers have asked about the background paper used. It was from Prima Marketing's Fairy Flora Collection - Sunlight Daisies. I believe it is discontinued though there was one US company still listing it (Bluemoon?). You could get a similar background by distressing! Jill
