An Attitude of Gratitude #18
Today's prompt was Memories and the technique too use old packaging. All on the "An Attitude of Gratitude" challenge blog.
The colours weren't at all what I'd intended but I was lead by the packaging from some Andy Skinner stamps from which I punched the boarder on the right and diecut the "Memories" and wings. The birds were diecut from an old clothing tag.
I'm sure my "Old Paper" distress stain is having an identity crisis as on the bottle it is definitely a pale brownish colour but this is decidedly pale green! I used "Shaded Lilac" distress ink for the shading and stamping. I just had to add an elephant as I remember so much! I balanced the silver with an embossed boarder on the left and some peel-off spots and silver glitter.
Off to tend to my Rudolph nose as I am full of cold - Sigh.
