I've been nursing a bad cold all week, and had a rather heavy day yesterday which has set me back a bit ... with the result that I've made this ATC and I haven't a clue what it's about!

You know how I usually work, telling myself the story as I go along, well this time the work flowed fine, but without the story, so I have no idea why this particular assemblage works together except that it does.

The background is another of my Distress Ink backgrounds (thanks to Dan's wonderful tutorial) overstamped with text. Although you can't really tell, the picture is mounted on tissue paper, which gives a subtle effect. The two french embellishments are from an Artchix collage sheets, with the key and lace from my stash.

I think my brain has been overtaken by generalised fog, but I'm looking forward to hearing her story!!

Well she's lovely - I think she looks quite mischievous and maybe she's got the key to a door that leads to naughtiness!
