Fun by the sea

This card was made using the Faye Whittaker  stamps from Joanna Sheen. I really love this little boy. These stamps are so good if you want to do water colouring but can't draw so good, like me!
I have used archival ink which is water resistant to stamp the image and  Inktense pencils to colour in.
For the background I have used some photo paper coloured with adirondack inks applied with cut'n'dry foam. Then using Fretboard embossing folder I run it through the Grande Calibur. To take some of the gloss off the paper and make it look weathered I sanded it back with a craft sanding block. The colours I have used for the background are stonewashed and hazelnut. I also used hazelnut to colour the matted layer.
I was really pleased how this turned out. That's all this time, let me know what you think.

Thanks for looking, happy crafting.
