A Monday Hello,

Hello,

Hope you had a great weekend. I had a wonderful day on Saturday teaching at Crafts U Love. I met the loveliest, sweetest ladies thank you all so much for making my day so enjoyable. A big, big thank you to Tracy and Heidi for looking after us all.

This is one of the cards we made.

I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress inks. The background is distressed with tattered rose. I have distressed my papers with Tim’s distressing tool and inked the edges with vintage photo. The circle is die cut with a nestie. I have sprayed my circle and flowers with glimmer mist. I have added stickles to my image and the edge of my papers.

I wish you all a wonderful week and thank you so much for looking.

love kim x

inks used – tattered rose, antique linen, brushed corduroy, frayed burlap, vintage photo
