Happy Retirement...no not me!

I have used a stamp today by Taylored Expressions.  This is one of their Grumpling range of stamps which always make me laugh as they have such funny sentiments to go with them.

I coloured the grumpling in with Copics and used some Distress Ink and some Clarity brushes to create the background and then added some 'artistic splodges' with a watercolour brush.

I also added some white spots to the chair with a uni ball pen and heat embossed the sentiment onto some black card.
