I am so inspired by the ideas and love the tutorials by M Zindorf that I made yet more cards this afternoon.

Again, the background is an idea I learned by studying M Zindorfs blog. I made this in 2 colours, will show both of them. I love the colour of the blue one, but I think the green one turned out much better, it was the 2nd one I made.


I have been creating some art following tutorials by M Zindorf again. This is one of them.
I really like the colour combination of layering on the black and the green!
