Happy Birthday Great Bob
Here's a recently made card. Yep, I've scored another PSX botanical stamp, sooooo happy with that! This one I decided to stamp in Adirondack Lettuce. That's a water-based ink, which will run when it's wet. I love to use that aspect of it, and started to "colour" it with just water. Then I added some yellow (some Inktense pencil, it's very bright, so you can add a tiny bit). It's on watercolour paper, which makes all the difference. Kind of messy, and I really enjoyed doing it.
So when Great Bob's birthday came around (that's Great Uncle Robert, Jeff's uncle) I turned the picture into a card. I cropadiled on some eyelets - these are vintage eyelets in an unusual colour.
