Something New

Long time no see, but here I am, back from a nasty cold. I've been fiddling with an overloaded DT card so I needed to make something completely different for a change. It's for a young adult who just loooves all kind of computer games, just like his father does. LOL!

The image from Mo Manning is just perfect. I coloured it with my usual Derwent watercolour pens and too much water, the paper fibres didn't like that treatment at all, gah! My usual watercolour paper is too thick for the writer.

The wonderful design papers are from Stitchy Bears Stamps, a win from the Moving Along With The Times Challenge. My computer is loaded with new lovely digi goodies now. And speaking about wins I had one at The Scrapbook Sisters too. A wonderful start on the new year!

I'm entering:
Simon Says Stamps Challenge: New Beginnings! There are a lot of them in computer games.
Crafty Calendar Challenges: New Beginnings!
Mo's Challenge Blog: Going Retro! The dark browns, teal and orange are retro colours for me, something granddad had in his flat. The brown design paper reminds me very much of his wallpaper.

Have a wonderful evening and come back soon again for a visit!
