Hamlet PigWit in the planter.

Wednesday means that it's time for a little mid-week inspiration for From The Heart Stamps.
I've used May's Stamp Of The Month today, Hamlet PigWit in the Planter.
You still have almost 2 weeks to join in our progressive challenge, and earn yourself a free image, which will be the SOTM for June, just for taking part :)

Here's my card..

I coloured Hamlet with promarkers, then got out my pencils to add some more detailling, especially to draw in the wood effect on the planter.
I fussy-cut the image, and the sentiment, which is one of SEVEN that you get as a bonus.

I wanted to keep the focus on Hamlet, so decided on a simple card design. I used a Marianne border die (wave), and patterned papers by Prima (Believe). I raised these corners with foam, and also added foam to the centre of the card to support the image.

I'd like to enter this card at:
Passion for Promarkers - special anniversary - spots and/or stripes (my backing paper)
Scrap N' Challenge - anything goes
Stamping Sensations - anything goes

Thanks for looking :)
