I'm a bit late posting today, on account of Blogger playing up this morning. It would not let me do anything...BOO HOO
Anyway not to be defeated, I'm trying again now.
The paper is from the Basic Grey Phresh and Phunky collection. "Rather last season darlings", but who cares, I like it anyway. You can still get it on-line if you shop around. The main piece 'Phlordilee' was first torn round the edges. I then soaked it with water, screwed it up and squeeeeeezed the water out, then I opened it up gently, as it was rather fragile by this time, and randomly dabbed over Starburst Stains from The Stamp Man. This gave it a beautiful gold shimmer. Doesn't really show up in this photo, but believe me well worth a try. It's gorgeous. I curled one corner up into a roll and left it to dry off in the beautiful sunshine we amazingly had yesterday. Once dry, I brushed over the peaks with Brilliance ink Cosmic Copper, and touched it around the edges, I punched some holes in one corner too.
The stamp is from Whiff Of Joy, one of my brand new purchases this week, and the flowers from Prima, over-stamped with a scroll in that cosmic Copper Brilliance Ink again. I don't generally do much distressing, but after this I think I'll have a go at some more, as I'm rather pleased with the result.
