Boy in a tub boat

I've had this cute stamp from Viva Las Vegas for at least 6 months and this is the first time I've inked it up, I have so many stamps that need a little ink 😏
I stamped the image of the boy in the tub then masked it, I used the Penny Black  script stamp for the background and then watercoloured the image and the background.

I'm entering this for the following challenges

CAS Watercolour June challenge "Summer"
