another wet Sunday...

Well...yesterday was hot hot hot with blue skies and blazing sunshine all day...sat in the garden until late enjoying a glass of wine or two with some good friends (and getting bitten by nasty flying things...really itchy foot today...) today it's raining and chilly!
This is my entry for the current challenge at The East Wind 'You ought to be in pictures'. I used a gorgeous image, Hybiscus, which I was lucky enough to win in a previous challenge. I've coloured her with copics, sticking to grey tones apart from the flowers. I used polychromos to shade her hair. The background is embossed. The die cut filmstip has tiny repititions of the main image in shades of blu and grey. The not-very- realistic flowers are my attempt at creating hibiscus blooms! The film inspiration...Blue Hawaii..

Thanks for visiting today, hope you're enjoying better weather!
