Distressing.....

Monday again.....gosh the weeks fly, guess its because we make every moment count if I'm not working, I'm usually having a crafting moment or catching up with a smidge of telly, so its off to work again soon, well in half an hour just time to post this card which is one I did in a class with Linda a couple of weeks ago, thought I'd be cheeky and enter it in Simon Says Stamp and Show as this week the challenge is distress inks, and being as that is all we used to create the card I thought it was apt...... I must admit doing a whole background is quite tiring on the arms especially building up the colours, but I'd not done cards using just inks to create backgrounds so I learnt alot. The stamps that we used are by B Line......gorgeous range of vintage stamps from L.B Crafts.




Have a good day
hugs
