It’s my turn to share a card with you on the Don and Daisy blog today and I’ve chosen this cute new stamp of Swimming Don . I don’t often create male cards as I love my lace and flowers but this little fellow was so cute I just couldn’t resist, I’ve combined him with some fabulous Graphic 45 DP and created this pretty card:

My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E47, E44, E43, E42, E40 clothes: BG15, BG13, BG11, BG10, BG0000, R05, R02, R00 I added some Glossy Accents to the goggles for effect

The cute little dolphin, ball and seaweed are brand new for Marianne Designs and are the perfect combination for my image. I’ve sponged them with SU Island Indigo ink to match my papers
