Tightrope Walker

I think I'm gonna get Greg to name all my post titles in future ... he took one look at this card and said "Ha, he looks like a tightrope walker"!!

I've used a few Eat Cake Graphics stamps here ...

5073-E Crow flapping wings

Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Clear gloss added over the sentiment to make it stand out more, and to the crow's beak and feet.

We were down in our local park today to have a look at the river and it was a bit of a raging torrent!  Apparently there were parts of Northern Ireland got half the normal rainfall for December last night!  This weather definitely needs to wise up.  I feel so sorry for all those folk who've been flooded out of their homes and businesses.

Wow - that river really IS a torrent! Wouldn't want to fall in. Your card is great and I love the title - tightrope walker. That crazy bird looks a little afraid of heights.
