Let the sun shine

Oh yes, hasn't it been a glorious few days - I forgotten how good the sunshine makes you feel :D  This card was such an odd one for me as it had a new technique some really old card blanks that I had never used and black!  It always take me a bit to get my head used to 'new things'.  I used the thwumping technique ( I got a feeling I might have made up the name for that) where I coloured the stamp with my stampin markers and 'thwumped another darker marker sporadically over the flower head, THEN spritz it with water.  Well talk about using up all my techniking on one card LOL!

Hope it is sunny where you are - have a great weekend x
