Duckie Flying Kite

I have a bright and summery card to share today...unfortunately we don't have the weather to match...I really hope all of the athletes arriving here in London for the Olympics have packed their wellies! I won this stamp on the High Hopes Challenge a few weeks ago...he's called 'Duckie Flying Kite'...he arrived last weekend, and this is the first time I've inked him up. I coloured him using watercolour pencils to match the zingy colours of the We R Memory Keepers 'Hippity Hoppity' papers. I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The die cut letters and sparkly chipboard flower are from the same pad.
