Whiff of Joy - Black, White and a splash of Brown

Well actually a great big dollop of a splash! I got a bit paintbrush happy :O)

I keep moaning my pens are running out, and keep getting reminded you have twinks! lol, I love my twinks, and they dont get used much at all anymore, so I got them out to play I say them I only used two colours lol.

The way I have splashed the colour on reminds me of some of my old atcs and of both Chris's and Pascale's style which I admire both, and jogged my memory on how versatile my twinks are so colouring is on the agenda tonight.
SO what do you think? I tried to keep the card plain as I think the paint is very busy so decided to use a cuttlebug embossing folder on the back and some floral ribbon. The pearls and gems are papermania, I popped in to smiths today and they have a whole bunch of stuff on offer yippee :O)
Thanks for Looking.xxx
I hope you are all well, it has been piddling down all day here, grey and dirty ugh, wishing you all a great evening. Thanks for stopping by.xxx

Duh! I forgot the link! Whiff of Joy
