Sparkly Primroses

Brrrr it's a cold day out there, the North wind always makes our house feel chilly.  On the plus side it was a great drying day on the washing line, though on the minus side there's that pile of ironing ... think I can probably ignore it for another day or two before it topples ;)

My card today uses an ooooooold stamp that I bought years ago at the Belfast craft show thinking it would be good for a sympathy card and then really struggled to use it.  I've coloured my image with watercolours, and then decoupaged them (haven't done that for ages either!)  Added Spectrum Noir sparkle to the flowers and clear gloss to the swirls and then doodled a border to match the image.  I like how it turned out, so hopefully I'll not be leaving it so long before inking again!
