Back from the colouring wilderness

Good morning Bloggers, and another gorgeous one it is too. I hope you all had a wonderful Bank Holiday while I was working. How come so many folks do their big weekly food shop on a glorious BH instead of getting out and enjoying the weather for the brief time it's here. Oh well, never mind eh, they must have their reasons and I'm not complaining as it keeps me in a job!
What do I mean by the title? Well, for about 9 months I have not done any colouring, I took an aversion to it for some unknown reason, but I seem to have recovered my enthusiasm at last and this is my first colouring in many months. I was afraid that my copics might have dried up but no, they are still okay, thank goodness :o)


Base card is white linen cut to 8x8. Panel embossed with Embossalicious, this being the third of my three for the price of two folders. Unfortunately you are seeing the debossed side as I used the wrong side, but it still works LOL.
The peony is a digi image and I am sorry to say I cannot remember where I got it. Had it from the days before I sorted them into named files! Coloured with said copics then handcut and attached with foam pads. Sentiment is Penny Black I think. 
The panel was then layered onto red Bazzill. I am happy to say that I really enjoyed colouring again and there will be more :o)

Yes, I pulled away from coloring for a bit myself, but didn't have beautiful photos to work with instead...haha ... just die cuts! I don't know what a Bank Holiday is other than the banks must be closed due to a national holiday....like 4th of July, Labor Day, Memorial Day, President's Day and 3 others. They always make it on a Monday so people can have a longer weekend. Nice to see you back doing some lovely coloring.

Your colouring looks great, I am missing mine as I have no space at present. I like the deboss effect also, and often accidentally do this. xx Flora
