For a budding artist!

Good afternoon and how are you this Wednesday?
The morning has magically disappeared again, how does that happen?
It has been raining all morning here, dreich and miserable, our walk was a little on the damp side.  I did put it off for a wee while hoping the rain would ease but no such luck.
Thank goodness for my long line waterproof coat, I was told yesterday there isn't bad weather in Scotland, just inappropriate clothing.  I had the appropriate clothing so only my boots, coat and glasses got wet.
Oh to have windscreen wipers on your glasses!

It is my eldest boys last higher examination this morning, hopefully by now he will have finished it and will be heading home on the bus for a relaxing afternoon.
My youngest is also off after school today for a long weekend.
We are planning on having a bit of fun, I will fill you in with more details next week.
My BFF text me this morning, it is not often we both get a day off together and when we do one of us always has something booked or something else to sort.  This morning I got a text to pop around as she had scones in the oven.  I didn't need telling twice!  We had a lovely chat and catch up with the joy of hot tea and warm scones too.  Yum.
Back to today and I have more cards to make later and an ironing pile that seems to grow of it's own accord, before popping out to see another friend this evening.

Today's card I am sharing is for a budding artist.

I have used kraft card for my artist palette and then added copics to colour, adding glossy accents to finish to create a wet look like paint.  I have then used my computer for the sentiment and mat and layered with corresponding card stock.

That's all from me today I'm away to get the boys lunch and then catch up on a couple of cards before tackling some of my ironing mountain.
Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday.

What a brilliant card this is. Using the glossy accents on the paint splodges is a stoke of genius. It has been raining all morning here. finally stopped but there are still black clouds up above. Hugs Mrs A.
