Bold and Bright

..is the new theme over on the Tando Challenge blog and today its my turn to share my project…

I'm really out of my comfort zone here…for some reason bright things always ended up grunged! so, this was a real achievement…




The base is an inner out of a arch with straight edges pack - this was then coloured using distress paints and then distress inks…. I used white paint thro' Kazs mask to make the dotted centre piece… the birds  are from a minis bag and painted with distress paint, a stamped sentiment finished off the piece (this was still wet when I photographed it tonight - will take a better picture tomorrow - the saying is:- "art doesn't have to be pretty")

Pop on over to the challenge blog - there is a great prize of Tando goodies up for grabs for one lucky monthly winner…see you there….

Yup... I'm always tempted to grunge it up - what, no Vintage Photo?! But this is really pretty!
