Quirky Herbert,Brushoes and Pencils

I can't believe it's almost a week since I posted a card lol well I have one here using my brand new rubber stamp and brilliantly quirky image from Stampotique-
Herbert Hare by Karen Hayselden.I coloured the image using (cough cough)my grandaughters crayola pencils lol and inspiration from Karen,the little stamped circles are from Polka Doodle,the stamped sentiment is from Visible Image.Cardstock from Papermill Direct the background was created by spraying water and Brushoes through a stencil-a new technique for me.
