LOVING IT

For this week's challenge/swap, i chose 5 objects for the theme.

The 5 objects that are to be included in the ATC are:-
Bubblewrap,
staple
flower
wood
star.

Well it's caused quite a stir, hahaha, people are packing their suitcases and leaving the country.

I'm loving it, giving people such a challenge. I know i won't be able to do it every week, for one thing, it's thinking the challenges up, but I don't think their nerves would stand it. HAHAHA

So here's my effort, hope you like. Definitely got a 'thang' for pink and shabby. lol


The background was stained first with a teabag, and left to dry. I then inked up some bubble wrap with distressing ink, and stamped the card.

A torn piece of bubble wrap was staped to the left with bronze staples, and a silk flower was attached with a star brad.

The focal photo was adhered to a small square piece of wood, therefore using all 5 objects.

The large piece of lace was from my dear friend Belinda in Tasmania, which she hand dyed.

The small pieces of lace, i stained with pink ink, and distressing ink.

VOILA
