You Make Me Smile!

Hi lovelies, hope you're all well, warm & dry.
We've had rain, rain & more rain's still pouring down.....and it's tried to snow as well! I've spent most of the day in the warm having a crafty play....ooh, I do love my craft room lol. So today's offering is the simplest of inky snippet just begging not to be thrown away so what was I to do? I added a few more layers using caran d'ache pastels & a water brush, once dry I stamped using a black Stazon then added some snippets of seam binding that I dyed using the same colour pastels.Got to be honest, I got itchy fingers & wanted to add more....but I was good & sat on my hands....& I do love the simplicity of it. Rightio, better go feed the masses.....thanks for popping in.....see you tomorrow!
