Tim Holtz Umbrella Man and Word-Play Dies ... Plus a few stamps.

Yo everyone, I've enjoyed completing this card this afternoon, whilst watching a very exciting British F1, Grand Prix on the television.
A Distress Inks blended background. More Distress Inks used to stamp with the Hero Arts Stamp 'Painted Canvas' then I switched to Ranger Archival Black Ink for the 'Bubbles' Stamp by Indigoblu.

The chipboard letters were cut using the Tim Holtz Word Play Die and covered with two coats of white Gesso, before being painted, splashed, and splattered with various transparent Fresco Chalk Paints from PaperArtsy. I ADORE these paints.... Oh yes!

Another Tim Holtz Die, 'The Umbrella Man' and a bit more sloshing around with Distress Inks before I stamped over the top with the  famous, the ONE and ONLY 'WATER DROPLET STAMP' from Designs by Ryn.
A few blobs and spots of Rangers White Enamel, along with some white Gesso circles and a few highlights on the letters made with a White Pigment ink pen.
I was very happy with the end result and also delighted that Lewis Hamilton WON the F1 Race ... Rock'n Roll!
