Red Rock

A friend of mine is celebrating the launch of her first novel and we've been invited to the party!  I thought I'd better make a card to take with me!
I've used the cover of her book as inspiration for this card.  I hand drew the rock before masking it off, stamping the grid in clear embossing powder, stamping over with watercolours on my grunge stamp and then colouring in the rock with water colours, before adding the splatters and sentiment.

I'm entering it into
Fashionable Stamping Challenge #56 Can-U-Resist
Less is More - use dark green and rust
Retro Sketches #80  (I turned the sketch on it's side)

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the book is Red Rock by Kate Kelly - order your copy now!

Wow!  This card was reached the top 3 of Fashionable Stamping Challenge #56 Can U Resist!  Thank you - you've made my day  :-)
