THEN SINGS MY SOUL

NOW TRADED
I made this for Wednesday Stamper challenge, which was to use brown and another colour. Well, you know me - brown is right up my street, but I'm trying to combine it with colour more often.

This is another of the Distress Ink backgrounds I made - this one was done with Aged Mahogany and Tattered Rose, and I love the way the colours turned out. I stamped over it with a new background stamp from Crafty Individuals, and the image is from Digital Collage Sheets.

I aged a piece of real lace and added an antique button. The title came about because she looks so joyful. The man of her dreams has just proposed, she's planning a fairytale wedding, and after the wedding she will be redesigning his country seat ..... !
