Under the weather

This is for this week's Willow Sketchie - I've used the sketch and quite a few layers for 'lots of layers':

 All papers, including white card, were from my offcuts box, another opportunity to hop into the playground at Pixie's crafty snippets 15. The stamped image is Funstamps puddle duck, coloured with copics and the sentiment was computer generated and printed. I can't claim to have made the crocheted flowers because they were shop-bought.

Colours inspired by Stamptacular 158 photo inspiration:

  1. Perfect match on the colors for the photo inspiration at Stamptacular Sunday. Darling card and we are so pleased that you shared it with us.

  2. Oh Hazel - I just chuckled out loud here, what a terrific image. It's so appropriate for today - it's raining stair rods and I bet there are a few ducks running round with their little umbrellas :)

    Great sketch you followed and the image, papers and those lovely flowers all go together so well. a star make for the snippet playground.

    Have a double go on the swings, but don't use the slide 'cos you'd get your knickers wet!

    A good day for crafting I think!
