Favourite stamp at Indigo Blu

Good morning my lovelies, how's your week going? Today's card is my entry for this months challenge at Indigo Blu where the theme is to use your favourite Indigo Blu stamp, not an easy choice as there are so many gorgeous stamps but in the end I picked this stamp which is from 'Little Voice', I love this set all the stamps really make me smile!

I've also used some of my favourite background stamps on this card - the gorgeous harlequin and honeycomb stamps and I've used the fab clock mask behind the focal image too. In between my stamped layers I've added a piece of craft resist card  for some texture,  I painted it with white gesso and wiped with some kitchen roll. The embellies are Altered Egos (also from Indigo Blu) painted with acrylic paint. I've added a metal corner to finish off.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Card Mania: anything goes
Crafty Sentiments: anything goes
Crazy Challenge: cards for men
Dream Valley: boys/men
Incy Wincy: add texture
Our Creative Corner: no more shopping sins
(my shopping sin is craft resist card which I have been hoarding for ages)

Thanks for popping by today
