I'm back with a second post today and what a cutie he is. He's a new rubber stamp from Crafty Sentiments Designs. I don't think he is on the website yet but should be shortly. There's also a very sweet new little girl, called Kaye available today as a digi and not forgetting the new releases due out next week which the DT will be previewing. I've had a good afternoon, finishing off one card and making two more, one of which was using a technique I haven't tried before. I'll be sharing that with you on Sunday probably.

Anyway on to my card for tonight. I used Papermania Portobello Road papers. I love the red, white and blue and the slightly grungy look and really must use them more. I've used Di Worn Lipstick and added some faux stitching around the image which has been coloured with Promarkers. I tried a different colour combination for the bear of henna, cocoa and raw sienna and really like the golden look it gives him. I've added a couple of very old letter epoxy stickers. In fact they were one of the first sets I ever bought so must be at least 5 years old. I've added some card candi and a Craftwork cards sentiment. I felt the card really didn't need any more embellishment.

I'll also be entering this into Lisa's (Wishcraft) waste not Wednesday challenge for using my old letters.

I have a stall at an indoor car boot tomorrow so have scheduled my DT post for Totally Gorjuss and I'll just say that it is another scrapbook layout.
