Evening all! Thankyou for your words of encouragement you've been leaving - it really means a lot that you take the time to leave comments for me!
Now this is my second post of the day - I'm pleased with this one - it came together well and I like it! Its going to be for a friend Morag up in Scotland for her birthday in June. I hope she likes it!
I started with an 8x8 card blank that I distressed with worn lipstick distress ink, added some ribbons then I added a matt of brown DCWV rick rack card. I cut a piece of Tim Holtz distressed papers to fit inside the rick rack layer and distressed the edges again. Afterwards I added another layer of Tim Holtz paper that I had used a distress stain on. I cut three patches of paper - 2 docrafts and 1 Tim Holtz and used distress stain on them plus walnut stain around the edges. Then I cut the images using spellbinders, wound the cotton on the reel , stamped the lettering and made and added the flower! Not too much stamping involved but lots of distressing.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

I think I'm going to have an evening in front of the television - maybe a glass of wine if I'm feeling really relaxed! Hopefully I'll have something else to post tomorrow!
