One last entry for Make My Monday's Humorous challenge... a little bit naughty, depending on  your own mind, but I bought this stamp with a certain person in mind and she certainly appreciated it 😉  I laughed out loud when I saw it - it really tickles me. 

I stamped and clear embossed the image, then coloured it with Neocolor crayons, although it doesn't need a lot of colouring to be honest.

Another card I coloured with Neocolors is this one, but most of the colour was added through a Tim Holtz stencil. It turned out a little dark, but I still like it. These are the Darkroom Door stamps I bought with my recent Simon Says Stamp prize. The smaller words are from an old PSX small stamp set that I love. The word 'Fragile' is from a Visible image stamp, which says 'How fragile we are'.

The Fun Friday Challenge is Flowers, so I'll link to that and the

 SSS Wednesday Challenge is 'No Patterned Paper'. Both backgrounds are inked...

Thank you for popping in.... always a pleasure to see you 

I'll be back soon

two fabulous cards! I love the humour of your first one, and both backgrounds are gorgeous.

The first one made me smile too! Love the colours, not too dark either!

Very deep and moody colours Kath but also rather lovely as they both create such atmosphere. I remember that Duck stamp being released and thought then what fun, but it will come as no surprise that I am edging rather towards the florals as my favourite today.

The cards are both fantastic Cath, but the first one really appeals to my sense of humour. I could think of a few of my friends that would laugh if they received a card like that as well.

Two fabulous cards Cath and the first on made me smile, what a great stamp! I love the colours that you've used on both of them x

Seems my new computer doesn't have your mail addy (as with quite a lot) so another quick comment in answer to your question, yes the ink does move nicely on that card, I've just added a bit more to the post to reflect that.

This poost came up in my sidebar before I fell asleep this morning, but I was wiped out and simply had no energy to visit. Wish I had, but I am glad I waited until I could fully appreciate the humor of the first card and the beauty of the second. These are both SO well done and clever, too.

I am not at all surprised your friend ie the duck card or that you laughed when you saw the image. It always makes me smile when I see ducks on the water and they turn themselves upside down - reminding me of the phrase "duck's bottom" for the hairstyle that young men wore in the 60's (was it?) It's a great card.
I really like how you used the shades of purple and green on the second card, what pretty flowers they are.
Hugs, Neet xx
