Stamping not camping!

I've just about recovered from our little camping trip to the Thames Valley. The weather was lovely the day we travelled down, torrential rain on the way back, and somewhere in-between while we were there. We still managed to get to Legoland, which was the main purpose of the trip, but the folding camper and awning took 2 days to dry afterwards. Don't you just love camping in the rain ;)

Needless to say, I was glad to be home (and dry) and getting inky again. Here's the result!

Olive card base with a layer of white cardstock and tangerine designer paper. The image has been stamped in olive ink and coloured using inks and the aquapainter. When dry, glitter has been added to the flowers to add a bit of sparkle. The image has been trimmed and added to the card base.

The sentiment has been stamped in tangerine onto a scalloped oval, then added to the olive dotty frame label layer with dimensionals. A layer of pleated olive grosgrain ribbon underneath the sentiment adds a finishing touch.
