Faking it

Stamps: Bitty Bird (PTI); Season Sparkle (My Cute Stamps); words (Elzybells)
Ink; Versamark (Tsukineko)
other: Prisma colour pencils; Parker alphabet dies (Memory Box)
A complete change of direction for me today.  When my 7 yr old saw this card, he said "Wow Mum, did you draw that?".  As he never normally applies 'wow' to anything I do I was tempted for a moment to let him believe in mum-as-artist, but had to confess to stamping lest he call my bluff later on!
I really enjoyed myself with this, stamping in Versamark & then going over the lines with pencil.  I'm not uberhappy with the JOY bit, even though I embossed it with my favourite letter dies.  Next time, I'll cut out the letters & sponge them with white - but this is for one-layer-Wednesday, so die cuts are strictly verboten!
