Easter Monday relaxation

Good morning, it's the last day of the Easter holiday and what a wonderful one it has been. The weather could not have been better and we celebrated little Jack's 2nd birthday yesterday on the hottest day of the year in the hottest part of the UK. I will get my photos sorted out and a post up very soon but here is one from our sunny day.
It is also time for my Monday design team make for Visible Image and for today I thought I would share another project made some time back but never shared before. 
It uses the wonderful Mr Caterpillar stamp set.
I made this card for Creative stamping magazine last year and the colour scene was set for us as reds/greens/orange/yellows.
Using the set colours I made an alcohol ink mysterious background for my laid back Mr C to relax in and smoke his pipe.
I dripped the colours into the middle and loved the bubbles they formed.

I coloured up Mr Caterpillar with my Zig watercolours.
and then fussy cut him out adding glossy accents to make lenses for his glasses, plus some glitter and white pen accents.
I stamped, cut out and matted up the sentiment in the set and put my card design together.
Here it is;
With a couple of close ups.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
