A Inky Mess

This post is three days late dute to been confined to bed once again for the past week with really high temperature and chest infection-just about back in the land of the living again-fingers crossed.We have a new challenge at A Inky Mess sponsored by The Old Design Shop.I covered a piece of greyboard with srtips of an old book page,covered with distress ink which I covered with a layer of siver Aztec paint,disressed the edges and treated a smaller piece exactly the same.
I painted a small piece of leftover paper cut with a border punch and stuck on smaller card slightly creased.I stamped,watercoloured and die-cut the rose and leaves from Sheena Douglass,and painted three pieces of greyboard fauna andded a few confetti hearts and done.
