Spiral shell

Yippee Friday night has arrived again!

Hello everybody, hope you have a crafty weekend ahead of you...
I've been working with Spiral Shell from Designs by Ryn, such a pretty stamp!  The sentiment is from Inkylicious and I thought it was quite apt for this card.  I love turquoise and purple, they really zing together!



I'm off into Canterbury tomorrow morning and I'll be rootling around in our local art shop to buy more watercolour paper and maybe some gilding wax too... mmmm, can't wait!

Have a lovely weekend everyone... thank you muchly for visiting, please leave me a 'hello' comment! ;) xx
