New watermark

The noise here in my craft room is absolutely horrendous at the moment due to some bright spark from the council deciding that in order to avoid disruption to traffic they would close the road outside my flat and resurface it between the hours of 7pm and 7am Friday, Saturday and Sunday!!!!! They only started an hour ago and I'm already nearly tearing my hair out, its so loud, I have the windows shut but they have 4 diggers and god knows how many pneumatic drills going, and this is gonna go on all night for 3 night!? I think someone may have a full inbox of complaints to deal with on Monday morning.

Anyway to take my mind off the noise I've turned my music up and have been having a play with a making a watermark for my pictures. I made the card below a few days ago because I wanted to use my new stamp. I think the watermark on this picture is too bright
So I've made it a bit more transparent on the below images and a bit smaller and think it looks better.The card is made using a CC design Glam Girl Frankie stamp, water coloured with whispers markers, the paper is from DCWV Teen Prints Paper Stack, the ribbon is some old sticky ribbon that the stickiness had dried up on from papermania, the flowers i made from punches and then shaped with an embossing tool, the sentiment is from a digikit I downloaded (but I cant remember where from- sorry).
