Muted colours

Well we will have chalked up 36 years of married life later today, I can just about remember the summer of 1976 and some bright spark said we were going to have a repeat of it this year, was he ever wrong.
I haven't used muted colours on a stamped image for ages, see I still couldn't resist pinking it up. This stamp is usually used as a Christmas stamp but I took away the holly and the lantern as I like to get more use from my stamps. I did give her back a lantern of course. There is even a smidgen of Polychromos Pencils used, gosh will I enjoy playing with these.

Image - Willow with Lantern stamp from Whiff of Joy
coloured with letraset pens and a smidgen of Polychromos Pencils.
 Paper and card - card blank is a 6x6 from Joanna Sheen
