Distress Inks & Gesso

-Making Tags & Tag-Cards
-How Distress Inks Work on Gesso
-Using Bird Stamps
-Stitching on My Creations

I was inspired by the following challenges:
  Show us something you LOVE.
  I've used a Hero Arts-Bird stamp, that is an old favorite, & pairing it with a new-to-me stencil.
  The Mini Coffee Splotch Stencil is new to me.

Thanks for your visit.
