Beware ... Wet paint

Today's card is another one for a colleague whose birthday is in Feb (yeah, I'm working a bit ahead at the moment!).  Despite its simple appearance, it still took a couple of hours to create!

I've really been trying to concentrate on my water-colouring lately and, motivated by the second of my 3 new stamp purchases, this was another image I spent quite a long time painting!

This one's quite a large stamp and I knew the layout that I wanted to use in my head.  I printed out the text in a dripping style font in a pale colour, and then painted over it in the same Spiced Marmalade ink that I'd used for the paint in the image.

I was quite pleased with the result, but when I'd finished and showed hubby, he simply said "so does Jonny like doing DIY then?".

Fabby image and i so love how you have done the sentiment, i'm not surprised it took you ages, as you can guarantee if you want to smudge something, it never works ;-), Luv Sam x
