Looking up

Good morning

I am so glad I made it back into my garden on Monday, the weather here has broken and the garden is a complete washout. Ah well it looked good for a little while.
Today's card is another of my recent makes, this time for my father-in-law - 
I have used - 

  • Sheena's A little bit sketchy - looking up stamp set
  • Sheena's stamping card
  • black and petrol blue core'dinations
  • Spectrum Aqua markers - navy, marine, peacock blue and kingfisher
  • faded jeans distress ink
  • Spellbinder's sentiments 3
I made the background by scribbling onto a glass mat with the aqua markers, spritzing it with water and then mopping up the ink with a piece of Sheena card.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - 

Thank you for stopping by today

  4. This is a beautiful card and it has a great sense of perspective due to using smaller trees and balloons in the background. Great stamping and I love your inky background too. Thank you for sharing this with us at Stamping Sensations and good luck. Sandra x
