See, I CAN do pretty!

I'm not one for making pretty things - not that I have anything against them, it's just that pretty and dainty never seem to work for me. But I'm a big fan of Nikki Hall's Polkadoodles  designs, and  also a big fan of designs with dragonflies in them (I probably hold some kind of record for the number of dragonfly themed stamps I have) so when I saw issue 2 of her "Pen & Paper Circle" magazine, I had to get it!

The card I made today is based on the first design in the magazine, although instead of colouring in the images with watercolours I stamped them with Memento ink and coloured them with Promarkers,  which I am still very much a beginner with. 

I'm very pleased with the finished result and looking forward to trying more ideas from the magazine.
