2 in One Post !!

This week we are sponsored by STITCHY BEAR DIGI OUTLET  and I've created two cards using one of there stores images from Ginger Loft's - O Winter Trees. This image I altered the colour when I printed it to a rusty green and then used a lot of distress inks and sprays to alter the papers and make them more unique. I love the effect it causes on the image very dream like quality.
Join us in our Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week you can find it below.
