Easy like Sunday morning ..

Morning all,

I do love Sundays, all the frantic rush at the start of the weekend, to get the laundry, shopping and cleaning etc. done is all over (except, perhaps, the ironing!) and you can just chill today! Well, that's how I view Sundays.

Anyhoo, it USUALLY means I can find a smidge of time to craft too! A pal recently mailed me this fabulous Viva Las Vegas plate (being a fan of Doctor Who) and I could hardly wait to cut out the images (they come as one sheet of unmounted rubber) ......... once I'd stamped the image and sentiment and whilst I was colouring I set to thinking it would make a quirky get well card ...... and so, that's what it became!

My card
And a closer view of the TARDIS
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope

Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • White card cut to 9½ x 14cm - for insert
  • Snippets of card in white, black and navy - offcuts from matting cut from A4 card - great strips and, apparently, perfect for this!)
  • Viva Las Vegas (Plate #925) image stamped using Versafine majestic blue ink
  • Faber Castell polychromos pencils used to colour image and background
  • Viva Las Vegas (same plate) sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Viva Las Vegas circuit board image (same plate) stamped using Ranger Archival cobalt blue ink
  • Stampers Anonymous sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival cobalt blue ink
