Hope you have been enjoying your weekends! And if you’re celebrating an extra day off work for the holiday Monday too, then fingers crossed the weather’s being nice to you 😉
It’s pretty rainy here already. C’est la vie…
Here in the UK it’s the second of our May Bank Holiday Mondays, so I had a little extra chance to craft last night, being as I don’t have work today. Yay!
I added a stamped/ heat embossed layer in a neutral colour – white – to lift the colour balance. The woodgrain background is a wood-mounted DesignBlock stamp by Hero Arts ‘Designer Woodgrain‘ (S5208).
I was experimenting with the idea of keeping the background layer shabby and distressed, so I didn’t brush off the excess powder too carefully. It adds to the effect of an antique wood surface, like a well-worn-old-door I think.
A bit of layering with lilac scraps from my odds and ends pile, a purple felt die-cut flourish, a layered flower and a sentiment sticker finish off.
Will have some more goodies for you later with a few pics from our Madrid trip,
last weekend. See you, Rx
