Spring Equinox


Created for the Gothic Arch Challenge. The baackground was created using the wrinkle free Distress Technique using Faded Jeans ink. Once this was dry, I sponged on a little Chalk ink in Thatched Straw, then stamped over the whole background with a flower stamp (Hero Arts). Collage images added, and a fabric flower border to embellish.
