Whoop. New give away

Good morning all, 
and welcome to my little blog .
This is a special place where I share my craft journey with you 
my lovely crafty friends, 
Oh and my Mum. 
Morning Mum...

Today I have a fun card to share with you 

You know me , 
I like to do things just a bit different. 

I created the background by simple blend8mg some ink through the stencil. 
Then adding a few splats off matching ink and water. 
I do love my fan brush for this. 

Then I stamped, die cut and added some colour to this little guy. 

I wanted to ground him, 
So I came up with a plan to use this new die cut. 
Oh yes, I love this. 
But I needed something for him to juggle with. 
The stamp has Bananas, but as part of the DT, it is my job to provide inspiration. 
So hey presto...
I had an idea, 
Why not use the numbers from the die ..

I added some lines with a fine liner to give the impression of movement.

This is funny because my party piece for Elliot and Jenson is juggling
Only 2 or 3 balls. 
But it keeps them quiet for ages. 

I thought I would have a give away

If you fancy this new die from Bipashas 
All you have to do is be a follower, leave a comment on this post and I will chose a name at random 
And then get it in the post...

Have a fabulous day 
Much love and hugs
