Lazy summers day Week 24 at Just for Fun

Here we are at the second week of Zoe's choice of materials at Just for fun and one you will all be familiar with, it's corrugated card found in strong cardboard box's by tearing off the top layer you know the sort you can get from the super market or you can use the thinner craft corrugated card that comes in different colours . I choose to use both on my project.
After removing the top layer which came off very cleanly wish it hadn't lol I paint with household paint, the nice thing about the craft on is you can punch shapes out of it, I then highlighted the raised bits with a silver dabber, the face I made in a mould with air dry clay and painted with distress rock candy.
I thought I was only joking when I said I be getting wet last Thursday as it was a day of heavy showers and we were at Alnwick Garden admiring the water features lol by the way they have the most amazing loos
Hope you will have lots of fun with this weeks challenge and look forward to seeing you take on the theme .
I'm also entering this to Sir Stampalots anything goes

Beautiful piece of art Von. Pleased your layer came off easily lol. I soaked mine in some water to get it off and then, I too, used household paint to cover it--before I saw what you had done.

Haven't a clue what will happen to it now as I splashed it with H2O paints as well so it is soaked at the moment :)
