    1. Thanks Cathy,
      It was fun. My daughter was giving me some tuition on how to get the best out of the inks. They're her favourite.
      I hope you have a fun packed week ahead and thanks for stopping by

    1. Hardly Jaime...I had my daughter giving me instructions and she tweaked where necessary. But that's a secret just between you and me ;D

    1. Aww thanks Kim but I had a lot of help with using these inks for the first time.
      I think I will be using them again though ;D

    1. Well hello Julia,
      Great to see you. This is the first piece of painting I've done for quite some time but I hope to do much much more. Have thick fog outside yesterday helped. I couldn't see the garden never mind do any gardening. Glad to say it's lifted this morning. Oh the joys of a Scottish summer ;D
      Maybe I'll pop over on Wednesday with some more painting? Fingers crossed
      Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
      I know how busy you are so I appreciate it.

    1. I think I should have painted a bowl of soup more like it Nan. We were in a thick fog for most of the day! (It's lifted for today thankfully).
      At least the ice cream wouldn't melt too quickly though ;D
      I hope you had a good weekend and are ready for a fun packed week ahead?

      Maybe the thick fog outside helped ;D

      Enjoy!

    1. hehe...Thanks Rita,
      They are pretty but not one's that I would normally use so it was good to stretch myself. Lots of help from my daughter though. She's an expert with these inks

    1. Thanks Darren,
      If we hadn't been in thick fog yesterday I might have indulged in an ice-cream, but we were thinking more in the lines of soup! One of the joys of a Scottish summer I suppose.
      Thanks for hosting...it's really a fun linky ;D
      Have a great week and hopefully no more thunderstorms

  16. Oh, what talent! I admire anyone who has an eye for colour and detail like that. It looks good enough to eat!

    1. Hmm...not sure about that but we had fun and we're quite pleased with the outcome. I've never used the inks before but my daughter loves them so it was good to work together on this one. Not sure we'd have shared the ice-cream though ;D
      Thanks for popping over to my place...have a great week

    1. Thanks Susan but my daughter tweaked and kept me on track throughout. It was fun (when I remembered to breath) to use a different media than I'm used to.
      Living on the edge ;D
