Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Onto this week - 

So for this card, I used my Graph It's to create some of the background as well as colour the main image. I used inks to start the background but then used my Graph It's through a stencil to build depth. 

I started with a light colour to start.

I think it looks effective through the stencil.

Then I added a darker colour.

I blended the two before drawing round the bricks.
It's a great way to create background even if you don't have any other inks. The Graph It's work fabulously!

Here's the card - 
The image is Emma Canning - Web surfing which is perfect for those boys young & old! I added extra accents from my stash.
The Graph It's I used are - 
Skin = 4125, 4115, 4155 & 3210
Hair = 3125, 3150, 3170 & 3290
Laptop/background = 9100, 9102, 9103 & 9105

As you can see I stayed with the same pens throughout to create the background and on the main image. The cool greys are super male colour tones!

I'm entering this into the following challenge - 

Take care Zo xx
