Numerous Neutrals

It is only recently I have started to realise the power of neutral colours when composing the elements for a card.  That is why my rather depleted stash of card and paper is full of what I previously thought of as boring neutrals.  All the pretty colours were used up ages ago.  But now suddenly I get it, using neutrals can be very effective.  I am particularly fond of the Pink Petticoat's colour 'putty', as seen used as the background for this card.  Hope you like it.

Papers: from the Autumn Blossom digikit by Pink Petticoat
Colouring: a mixture of promarkers, sakura gel pens and watercolour pencils
Scalloped card: from Craftwork Cards
