Another Watercolour CAS card

Ok I know there was jewellery to be worked on and errands to be run but the stamp called and had to be attended to first.   2 of the jewellery re-makes have been dealt with as well and I even went into town this morning.  It is not somewhere I go often, in fact this was my first visit to the main shopping centre for 3 months.  It all looks rather sad, a lot of shops are open but the department store has closed for good.  We have lost a lot of our high street shops locally over the last couple of years, W H Smiths closed, BHS gone from all our high streets and now House of Fraiser.   Clarks was closed and it looked like there was a problem in the store as there were builders in there.  Many more shops were shut and boarded up it has been sad watching our town centres change in recent years the last few months have sped the process up a lot and very sad to see.

Nice then to be able to come home.  Here is the card.

The stamp is a magazine set, it was not quite long enough for the 6" postcard so lines have been lengthen with black detail pen.   This time I did not hold back with colour, scribble felt pens onto an acrylic block then picked up the colour with a water brush.

Here is who it is for
