Wonderful You

The weekend goes by so fast and I need more time to play!  I am glad that I had time to make a card today.  I love playing with my inks and just having fun.  That's how this card came about and I was inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast.  
I started off by using a stencil and watercolouring over it with Salty Ocean Distress ink.  I then finished the sides and the bottom with more stamps, water and Distress ink sprayed with water.  The skateboarder from Flonz is stamped with Memento Black ink.  To get a really dark image, I stamped the image twice.  To get it in the perfect position, I used my Stamp-a-ma Jig.  The sentiment from Hero Arts was added to the side.  

Also adding my card to these challenges:
Seize the Birthday- ANYTHING GOES
Hero Arts Birthday Challenge- ANYTHING GOES
Virginia's View Challenge- WATERCOLOURING

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  Stamps- Flonz, Hero Arts, Impression Obsession/ Memento bl ink/ Distress ink, Salty Ocean, Broken China/ twine
