...for a Spin!

Today's card features another of the bargain stamps (5 for £1!) I found in a charity shop recently...this one is by Penny Black and is called '...for a Spin!'. I stamped it onto watercolour paper along with a sentiment from the 'Big Messages' set by Paula Pascual, then coloured it using watercolour pencils. I paired it with papers from the 'Happy Day' pad by My Mind's Eye...distressing the edges a little then adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.
