Tanker meets a Sense of Time!!

 Morning peeps!!!

How are you all today? good I hope. I am feeling a bit brighter today and have managed to get myself out into my craft room for a bit of finishing off!!!
I made a topper with a SU Sense of Time stamp set that my lovely friend Hev lent me (....ermmmmm, and it decided it wanted to stay at my house on an extended vacation so I owe Hev some pennies now!! romfl!!!) and I knew when I was making it that I wanted to pop Tanker from Tiddly Inks on it.

I only got round to getting my Tanker image yesterday as I have been poorly for a couple of days. Last night whilst scott and I were watching the Eurovision song contest (...yup I know its a little pants but I love listening to the commentators, I miss Terry Wogan but Graeme Norton did an awesome job and had me rolling with laughter!!) I coloured her up. Now I don't know why but she really reminds me of Amelia Earhart!!! its those cool goggles I think!!!
Anyhow, she got the brown's treatment to match my stamping of the Sense of Time set onto my creamy cardstock. I used Frayed burlap for all the stamping and antique Linen and frayed burlap to distress it all. On the little clock face you can just about make out the crackle glaze ( which is why I took a piccy from kind of above it!!!!)
........And get me.....I even did inside too!!!! wooohoooo Me!!!! lol :)
So Tankers promarkers were.....
Tan, sandstone,caramel,cocoa and burnt sienna. With a teeny touch of sakura clear star gelly roll pen on her eyebrows, bullet belt and boots.

She is such a cool girl!! so I am popping her in the challenge over on the Southern Girls blog which is Lets hear it for the girls.
So Hev will be pleased that I have posted my card I hope!!
I am off for a bath and a bit of breakfast now before Mo and I pootle off to my mums to plant out his strawberry plants into a strawberry pot.
Have a fabulous sunday peeps
Huge hugs Lou xxxxx
