napkin background


The theme at Gothic Arches is pretty in pink and the theme at saturday's workout is tissue or handherchief.
I've used a floral paper napkin to make the background, I glued it to card with mod podge, and scrunched it and left it to dry. I then sprayed it with antique brass glimmer mists to accentuate the texture. I like the sepia tones against pink so I used this sepia child from Inka, I have also used various inka stamps.
