This Ol' House!

Judith, a friend at one of the craft groups I go to, always works with the most amazing templates and produces some beautiful work. She used this template to make a really pretty house card which looked fabulously fresh and summery. I took one look at the shape and thought GRUNGE! Does this say something about my personality?

So after an impromptu distressing tutorial this emerged. Dont know what the template was or the card I used as I just used what was to hand but I was pleased with the results and now I've converted two more crafters to the messy fingers brigade!

Thanks Judith and Glynis - really enjoyed the day!

Stamps - Prima build a swirl, Dovecraft Fairies
Inks - Adirondak, cranberry and lettuce & Memories
Embellishments from stash.

Had fun with this One and I think it could also make a really good tag...........

This is stunning Michelle. Love the distressed look and the colours are great. You could use this for just about any occasion, it's such an intersting shape.
