MMM - Challenge 7

We are still concentrating on VINTAGE over on the Make My Monday challenge blog and this week it's all things shabby. The challenge is produce work that has been CRUMPLED or TORN.
Well this one had me thinking but after a rummage through my stash drawer I found my Hot off the Press 'Botanical Ephemera' book. There are some fabulous images in there just right for some vintage shabby chic - take a look
The Fuchsia images were cut from the book and stuck down on to a piece of cream paper that had been ripped around the edges - they were inked with Tea Dye DI also. The embossed swirl down the side is a stamp (also from Hot off the Press) and was embossed with gold powder.
Hope you are able to join in the challenge this week - it would be great to see your work too. Bye for now - Jacqueline xx.
