Fragments......

Morning peeps well the weather man was right its raining .....mind you we do need it for the gardens, I'm off next week and rather than go away we are having a grass laying, gardening, wallpapering, cleaning kind of holiday, can't wait to put down the grass and have some colour in the garden again....its artificial grass and it looks so real and soft it will be great for the grand children to play on.....ohhhh I'm already thinking in twos, my poor daughter is really going through the morning, noon and night sickness, hope it soon passes. On a funny note I'm coming out in teenage spots, haven't had spots since I was kid and now I'm getting zits.....whats that all about !!
Oh well enough of the waffle, today's card is one I did do a while back but never got round to posting.....I have a back up card file, sad I know, but sometimes you make a card and forget all about it, this is one I did in a class with Linda Elbourne lots of distress inks and this one also has a fragment which has been alcohol inked and removed, pop over to Tims to get the full deets, as its the challenge over at Lindas this week, seems ages since I entered a challenge there, I love this technique as it gives a real vintage look.I've used tissue tape and embossing to create the background and all of the stamps are by B Line.



Challenges

Stampin' B....distressing.

  Have a lovely day

Absolutely gorgeous card Daniele. Love that image and the gorgeous vintage effect and colours.
Hope your daughter feels OK soon as I had the same problem when expecting my elder one and it was not nice.
It's been raining buckets here too but at least the grass will look better.
Hugs, Fliss xx
PS: Sorry about the lack of comments lately - rather busy!

What a fabulous vintage project Danielle - gorgeous! Thanks so much for all your lovely comments - I hope to be a better blogger now my studio is finnished. I can't lend you my husband as he's not much use with a shelf but my brother is fabulous in all manners of building - he's 6ft 2 and big so not easy to put in the post though.....lol. Cheers Claire x
