Blue Tan and Cream

I've had this stamp for a while and at the weekend at Sis I spent the day colouring images which included this one. I coloured the pot blue on purpose so I could use it for the Penny Black Challenges colour challenge this week. The papers are BG Wisteria all been distressed yes I said distressed with some distress inkpad, still feel I'm a bit heavy handed but the images are on white papers and I needed to distract the whiteness. The sketch is from Sketch and Stash.

What is it with Men and flatpacks, if there is instructions why don't they take the time to read it. Usually I read out the instruction but this time I let him do it all himself and he used the wrong size fitting to put it together and wonder why they dropped out!!!!!!!!!! The draws and the unit used the same fittings but different sizes why not work out which is which first DUH.
The draw unit is now together CORRECTLY even the draws work!

That old saying 'If all else fails - read the instuctions (or hit it with a hammer!)' comes to mind!!! I think they're all the same...it's like asking for directions!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This card is gorgeous - those pots look great in blue and I love the papers you've used.

Your distressing looks great - I've come to the conclusion that I don't do distressing - I do 'traumatising'! If you want to see some heavy handed distressing look at some of my cards!!!
