2 For 1

I've been busy this week so not had too much time for gluing and sticking, hence the 2 for 1... The Three Muses challenge is Water and LTDO is winter Wonderland. Here's hoping it's a happy marriage!
The stamp is from Above the Mark, the background is Viva Croco crackle paint in silver and it's painted through a Dreamweaver stencil. The water drops are Dewdrops from 3djean
The panel is made from foam core board and measures 10x10cm.

This is so great. I hope it doesn't get cold enough for the water to freeze, though, or burst the pipes!!

Effie, it does indeed make a happy marriage of two challenges. The leafless trees definitely say winter. Hopefully it isn't quite to the freezing mark or those lovely water drops will turn to ice. I like the faucet image. It look like it could have come straight from a plumber's catalog.

Beautiful artwork. I love the idea of the dripping tap (that's what Australians call a "faucet") reminding us not to waste water. The background is wonderful. Thanks so much for joining in the challenge. Sorry my comment is late!
