in the kitchen

Second post for today - not quite making up for lost time, though. . .
~ Ü ~


The image is a vintage Japanese print, from theHouseAcrosstheBay. It has been distress inked and stitched onto a piece of scrap card. The background is recycled wrapping paper, topped with scraps of sakura print paper, die cut strip, and embossed card. All the edges have been inked in fired brick & walnut stain. Embellishments are die cut butterflies, gems, ribbon, paper twine and gel dots.

For these challenges

Thanks for stopping by!

supplies: butterflies (cheery lynn), embossing folder (cuttlebug), waves (lifestyle crafts), gel dots (viva decor)
