I'm crafting again!

Some people, like Tim Holtz, can do mess well, but when I do messy it turns out ... well, messy! After a couple of traumatic days of searching I at last found mini-misters and Moon Shadow Mists. I almost wish I hadn't! I had another traumatic day getting the spray everywhere but where I wanted it and in the end decided to stamp over a bit of it and see how it looked.

I had bought a second-hand Hero Arts flourish stamp and thought it might look well stamped with Versacolor burgundy. I should have used the burgundy for the Hero Arts Happy Birthday stamp as well, but it didn't stand out well enough, so instead I used jet black Stazon which I think was a mistake.

I tore the edges of card pieces, mounted them onto gold mirriboard, wrapped them with a burgundy organza ribbon, added a flower, and stuck the whole lot onto a burgundy card.

The result is not what I intended, but at least I'm crafting again!
