Day 3 - The Thirty Day Colouring Challenge #thedailymarker30day

I seem to be on a roll with this colouring challenge and I am really enjoying taking a step back, finding the whole colouring thing very relaxing.

I was thinking that Remembrance Sunday is not far off and remembering my Father-in-law taking our boys to the local parade when they were young.  The boys were representing the Scouts and Beavers in their outfits and my Father-in-law, John, so proud of his RAF past.  So this was the trigger for the Day 3 colouring.

I rummaged through my stamps and came across a Penny Black clear stamp set called "Blooming Marvelous".  I stamped the poppies in Versafine "Stormy Gray" ink and then coloured the image with water colour pencils and a brush.

I found a word stamp saying "grateful" which I thought was apt so added that to the card and a little bug, courtesy of a Lavinia stamp set.
