Something for a Sunday

By all accounts, Hels' is having a fantastic time at Ranger U - well, of course she would be - wouldn't we all!! Anyhow, she has set the theme of "men" for today's Sunday Stamper challenge, so like her, I had only one place to go -

Umbrella Man!! I made a card for my entry. I had some trouble getting a decent photo for some reason, sorry!
Working on a piece of white card, I used a couple of Tim's masks and scattered straw ink, and the small matching stamp which is from the 'mini classics' set.
Die cut umbrella man on black metal and put it through a texture fade, wiped it with pesto alochol ink.

Stamped the text on a scrap of card, sprayed it with a perfect pearl/reinker mix (the label has fallen off so I can't remember what colours I used) and cut it in strips.
Close up of Umbrella man.







It's been a good Sunday so far - picked up my photos from Kew where I went yesterday, you can see them here and Liverpool had a good win against Newcastle, so I'm happy!

Talking of being happy, how fantastic was the Royal Wedding on Friday?!  Didn't Kate (sorry, the Duchess of Cambridge!) look amazing! I watched it all day long - and then watched the highlights too... with a tear in my eye!  I wish them a long and happy life together.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
