Having a play


I've been desperate to have a play with my new stash, so here's the result. I've distressed the edges of the card and the paper. The paper is by prima. I then used Victorian Velvet and Antique linen distress inks for a background and stamped an image by Tim Holtz. I also used crackle paint around the edges. The lace is by Wild Orchid and was inked with Victorian Velvet. I'm entering this into Allsorts - lace, ribbon and a charm.
It's been a lovely day today so we were invited to a friend's house for a swim. I can't quite get my head around 31 degrees in November though.
