Well I'm still hard at it - working through a pile of stamp images I've coloured but not progress any further with.

For this project I distressed the edges with distressing ink and used the Zutter to distress the edges - a 1st for me even though I've had the machine awhile!

I always struggle with male sentiments but thought this one was just right for this image - you can imagine him tutting!

USED:  Distressing
Stamps:  Crafters Companion (Christine Haworth collection)
Medium:   Copics, Prisma and Polychromo pencils, black pen, pva glue for faux pearls, distressing ink
Papers:    Portabella Road CD Rom
Dies used:  Spellbinders
Embellishments:  Twine, button, brads
Best wishes,
