Another week starts

Morning all,

                      Well this weather sure wants to make its mind up. it is never the same from one day to the next, I suppose we can not expect anything else really as soon [ I hope ] the spring will be here. There are so many spring flowers out now and lots of shrubs are trying to come out. Then we have a cold spell and they are knocked back,

I have for a long time been looking at the plastic matting that I place under my chopping board to so it does not slip while cutting on the board, I wondered what it would look like if  I used it as a background. Well at last I finally got round to trying in on the card, I have enclosed a picture of the mat. I  put some decadent grape textured paste over the top  with an old credit card and waited over night and I loved how it looked, So it just goes to show that all different things can work. 

This is what i used for the background I covered it with  decadent grape Textured paste 

Materials used

  • 20 x 15 aperture  card blank and envelope,
  • small piece of plastic matting,
