Good morning, the weather's been dreadful here for the last few days, I think I'll have webbed feet before long at this rate lol. My card today features some of the new clear stamps from Chocolate Baroque.
The background was created with distress inks (Tumbled Class, Peeled Paint and Tea Dye), blended on to Southfield White card and then splashed with water to give a mottled effect. I over stamped the background with dragonflies and bamboo stamps from 'Moonlit Waterfall'.
I stamped the scene using stamps from Oriental Crane with versafine ink and coloured with distress markers. I used some black card for matting and layering and added an oriental coin charm attached with some shimmery braid.

Before I dash off to work here are a couple of pics of our lovely puppy Barney, he's growing at a rate of knots and is full of love (and mischief lol). Here he is with his big brother and best friend Benji
Barney still hasn't worked out how to get down stairs and has a habit of rushing up stairs and then crying to be carried down, one of David's friends took this pic the other day. Look at those scary eyes, I think Barney is getting ready for Halloween lol.
Right, better get myself off to work, have a good day and thanks for popping by
