Hello everyone, hope you are all well. What a day yesterday, my first day back from holiday, and it took me THREE hours to get to work, and then driving home in that terrible storm.... think I need to go on holiday again, just to relax again! Anyway, back to my post for today, and this card is for Sketch and Stash Challenge No. 12. I have used one of my new stamps from Joanna Sheen's Lofty and Co. Collection, and this little guy is called Leaky Lofty. I just love this collection of stamps, they make me smile. The image has been coloured with a combination of Sukura Gel Pens and Art-Kure WC Brushes. I have also used Glossy Accents over the watery bits, to make it look more like water. The image was cut to size, and layered on yellow and blue card. The backing papers are from a Basic Grey paper pad called Lime Rickey, and to finish the card off, a stamped sentiment, some yellow brads, buttons and a strip of ribbon - all from my craft stash. Many thanks for dropping by, and hope you have a great day!
