I coloured him with ProMarkers and used Scattered Straw Distress ink to colour up the image layer around the edges. I did the same with the sentiment, using a stamp from The Greetings Farm. The background papers are from the Papermania Springtime 8x8 paper pad - I'm loving these papers! Finally I added a brown silk flower with three paper roses in the centre. I placed all the elements to make best use of the designs and swirls on the background paper.
I used this particular sentiment so that the card isn't obviously for a specific occasion, but would work for many.
I'll be posting on the Whimisical Ink Sorority blog for my regular Wednesday spot tomorrow, I hope you'll drop by to see what I've created to share with you. I am showcasing the newly released 'Abby Mermaid' stamp which will be available in the Queen Kat Designs Store from tomorrow.
Thanks for dropping by today, I do appreciate your support.
