Week 15 'Cottage Comfort'

The challenge this week at The Shabby Tea Room is to use this photo and /or stripes as inspiration.


Here's the card I did using a stamp from Penny Black and water colouring it with Tim holtz Distress Inks.I used some twill tape and frayed the edges laying it underneath the stamped image.I love the alphabets from Cosmo Cricket with the woodgrain effect,they go great with my tree image.


Back soon!
