Worn Wallpaper Blossoms



This is going to be a quick post. We spent about 3 hours working on restoring more files from my backup drive to my computer. Oy! It is way past my bedtime, but I wanted to get this picture posted before I crawled in bed. :-)

I used the Worn Wallpaper technique (Aug/Sept 2010 issue of Technique Junkies) along with the Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS68) for this week. The stamps are from Flourishes, and they have issued a "Bring Back Beautiful" challenge on their blog. I colored these flowers with Copic markers and then sponged a bit of Antique Linen distress ink over the entire floral piece to age it up a bit.

Hope you have a wonderful week! Off to bed!
