A is for Angler

Hi Crafters,

I've been getting inky over the Easter weekend and this is what I've created using my Distress Inks and a variety of stamps.

Distress Inks for the background
Versamark Onyx Black Ink foreground Stamping
Memento Green Inks
Woodware Angler Stamp and Sentiment
Various Sheena Douglas Stamps
Lavinia Stamps
Marianne Corner Die LR0143

I created the background by tearing a piece of paper and using the jagged edge with my inks for the mountains and water. The clouds were inked using another piece of card that I had cut to shape. Then it was just a case of over stamping the foliage and Angler image. I'm quite pleased at how this turned out.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Cardz 4 Guyz - #113 Something Beginning with 'A' (Angler)
Unicorn Challenge - #7 Clean & Simple
One Crazy Stamper - March ATG

A lovely day in Norfolk today, cool and windy but the sun is shining beautifully. It certainly makes me feel happier - plus I have managed to get three lines of washing dry and that somehow makes me even happier - sad house wife I guess :/

Hope you are having a great day too.

What a fabulous inky card, Lorraine! Love the scene you've created and the way you've blended different ink colours to create light and shade...very clever!
We didn't get to see the sunshine very much today but it seems Winter reared it's head again with hail and sleet! Fickle British weather as ever! Desperately need to get my washing out on the line - something I love too...apart from the ironing it causes! Glad you've had a sunshiney day! Hugs, Lisa x
