StampARTic challenge........................



Hello,
Where is the week going. Can you believe we are on Wednesday already. Hope everyone is ok. I have made a card for the challenge over at StampARTic. It is to follow a sketch by the amazingly talented Pia. I loved your sketch so thank you Pia. I have coloured my image with distress inks. I have distressed my background and papers with antique linen, weathered wood and frayed burlap. I have added a grungeboard heart and wings which I crackle painted and then sprayed with glimmer mist. I quickutzed some grungepaper with my flower die to make my tiny flower on the sentiment and then distressed with weathered wood and glimmer misted this along with my other flowers.
Thank you so much for looking and for any comments that you leave they are truly appreciated.
love

ps Madelene asked what the name of the stamp is. It is Chester how cute is that! number MY824
