Here is a close up of the fab sentiment and frame by Hero Arts.
And here is a close up of the bird cage by Craftwork Cards. The ivy stamp is by Flower Soft...it came with the lamp post set...a very versatile little stamp that I've never used before...but I can definitely see me using this again and again.
I have to say that, yet again, I have not been happy with my last few creations...I've certainly been lacking in the inspiration department...but I got my distress inks out today for the first time in ages and had a little play and really got back into the swing of things. I think it is mainly because I often feel so rushed...I get so little free time that I don't have the luxury to just sit and play...I gotta get this work life balance thing sorted out lol.
I used Tim Holtz distress ink in "Weathered Wood", and Adirondack ink in "Stream" to create the background.
Well, I've got another lie in tomorrow, followed by a bit of decorating... and of course I shall sneak into my craft room when hubby isn't looking lol...
See you again soon!
