Yes I know it's later in the day before I'm making my first posting, but all caught up with work now & hubby has returned to the office today, albeit feeling a little bit on the delicate side.
The Pink Elephant provided a sketch for this week & the theme at Daring Card Makers is "Wet wet wet".
I decided to have a play with some more of my Cute Companions "Friends" stamps. I used some orangy DCWV card for a sandy look & stamped some little stones on it, then using some DCWV blue card stock which I sanded down so the white core shows through, made a little paddling pool.
I have one ducky already jumping into the pool and another still to get his costume on, complete with life ring of course just for safety purposes...lol.
I created the splashes by stamping them in white ink & then going over them with some glossy accents for that true water look.
A strip of white card combined with some torn blue cardstock was the base for the sentiment which was stamped in blue ink.
To complete the card I used a brad from my stash to place a little lizard charm (from Telfords Direct) crawling through the sand.
Images were coloured using Bruynzeel water colour pencils.
Well I'm off now to have a little potter in the garden & get rid of some more weeds before moving onto my next project... have already made a start on a masquerade mask so may finish that off.
Hope you're all having a wonderful day.
