Today I have a card I made for another neighbour who will be 80 in July - I don't think he'll have any other cards like this one - lol! Hope he likes it!
To make the background I used distress inks - peacock feathers, mermaid lagoon and shabby shutters. I also used layering stencils from TH.
The main stamp is one from the Alice Palace collection at Crafty Individuals. I used the same distress inks to to water colour this image stamped onto water colour card. I then fussy cut it.
The background to the turtle is another brusho background done using the clingfilm technique.
I adore this stamp - it reminds me of a holiday I had with Shaun early in our relationship in Australia - we were very lucky and went for a three day boat trip on the Barrier Reef - and we snorkled with turtles - it was just perfect - a wonderful memory of my beautiful husband whom I miss so much.
I'm Looking forward to getting a new garden bench today - its a memorial bench for Shaun - if it comes I'll take some pictures and let you see it - probably on Sunday - tomorrows post is already scheduled!
I'd like to enter this into fashionablestampingchallenge101-all-about-the-men
Hope you have a great Friday!
