It was lovely to have the weekend off and nothing particular to do. Other than a girly night with some of my friends on Saturday and my lovely daughter Lynsey coming for dinner today, I had no agenda so I took care of a little (tiny) bit of housework, some washing and ironing - the bare minimum you understand :) and the rest of the weekend I spent playing with distress inks and alcohol inks.
I had to make a retirement card for my youngest son's nursery teacher - Evan is now 13 so has long since left nursery behind but he still remembers Mrs Waugh and it was lovely to be asked to make a card for her from her colleagues.
I decided to follow a sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp for the card and to use a new stamp I got at the Stamp show at Edinburgh Corn Exchange the other week. It is from Lavinia Stamps and it is called Chinese Lantern.
The background papers are by K&Co and the sentiments are from a little set by River City. I coloured the image with Promarkers and used Diamond Glaze over the colour. The edge of the card was inked with distress inks.
