Edwin coloured with Distress Inks

Hello all you lovely crafters. Well I'm afraid I've not been on much this week I've been rather glued to Sky News watching all this about Raoul Moat......all of us up here in Northumberland are not used to anything like this happening so its had people anxious & to some people excited at the same time (I find that a bit strange lol). I for 1 is glad its all over, it will be nice not to have to listen to police cars & police helicopters flying over all the time. I bet the soaps have took a hit this week there has been more excitement here in the North East never mind Eastenders..... altho I have to admit I dont watch any soaps of any kind.....I'm more of a Simpsons & Top Gear kind of gal lol. Anyway blah blah blah....I will get on with what I've made I'm actually surprised I even managed to make a card but it honestly only took me half an hour it really was just a quickie (that doesn't include painting Edwin tho). I have used Distress Inks on Edwin.....this is my 1st card with an image using inks!! I am quite pleased with myself altho I know I need a lot more practice......actually compared to lot of others out there who use inks for their images mine must, can I say that word on here?????LMAO!!! Anyway here is my inky dinky card with inky dinky Edwin.......this heat is frying my brain cells so please ignore the stupidness lol. The base paper at the bottom is from my big K&Co stack & I'm sorry but I cant remember where the others are from :-( sorrrrrryyyyy!!!! The bellies I got them from Arty Miss altho I got them over a year ago when I first went into card making but got bored after 2 weeks!!! My God how could I do such a thing????? well in my defence your honor I was ermmmmm.................... CRAP!!!! Honestly I really was & I'd not even heard of stamps & Promarkers & all the other wonderful, exciting when I see crafts I think I'm in heaven surrounded by Gods beautiful craft creations lmao........I do droan on dont I??????lol The sentiment is from a stamp in my stash, its actually got a whale on as well but I chopped him off......the little bugga was a fighter mind!!!!! lol Here is a close-up of my ickle dude here......doesn't he look peaceful away from us women & pondering about life's little incidentals maybe.............honestly brain is fried!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Actually while typing this I'm stuffing my face on a Cornetto mmmmm strawberry, I lurrrrrvvvveee strawberries he he he. Now this card like my other 1 on my other blog is again just for fun & not for any challenges......I'm not great at doing male cards as you know they are not quite my forte but the only way I can possibly get better is to make more so TA DAAAAAAA here I am doing more!!!! Well thats all for now folks.........but.....I'll be back!!!!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your comments & for visiting I do appreciate it & I know I go on & on & on blah blah blah but in my defense I have no real crafting buddies all I have is you guys.......but that said you are all the best.....its true what they say 'Crafter's are the loveliest of people'. So off I go now take care everyone & enjoy your weekend....mine actually started off FAB as my brother & family came up from Stoke-On-Trent today for a few can imagine the mixture of accents in our house, my kids sound like geordies cus they have been up here that long & mine & my hubby's accent is a mixture between potteries & geordie....obviously mt bro is pure Stokie lol. Anyway TTFN....I really am going now..........bye-d-bye Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
