Hello everyone...

Nice easy day for me today at work and home already...have a busy evening all this week but nice to be home when the watery Winter sun is shinning..

Going to share a card I made for fun..using this delightful and gorgeous image from JULIA SPIRI

GIRL WITH MUSHROOM  and going to enter their challenge ..anything goes with a twist of Unusual Hair...

Well, to me, any hair that is not light brown is unusual for me to this was a challenge..

There she is..all coloured up with Reno Art Markers and the background with a grey Faber Castell pencil and blending solution..

I love this mushroom border die that Annie sent me.and I .coloured it with markers..
MB die cut leaves...some solid and some framed...cheese cloth and a dragonfly..

I had a lot of trouble getting the white spots to show up on the mushroom so used white corrective pen in the end..did the job. [my gel pen does not like my markers..

One last photo...really pleased with this one...

Challenges to enter....
