Very distressed

Oh this is not my usual style but you have to give me something for trying.
The photos are not the best as I took them
in the evening when the light was going
and didn't use the lamp.
I got very distressed  making the flowers
and they have been distressed with everything I could lay my hands on.
Glimmer mist, Stickles, Distress inks, Rubons.  
I didn;t mind misting them with water but
crumpling them up was hard to do.
I did put some rubon on the lace to soften the harsh white but it
still looks too white to me.
So now it is over to you what do you think?

Here is a peek inside

This may be my last post for a while as we are having the bathroom renovated
and have to get out of the house for a couple of weeks
so this will mean no crafting for me.
While this is happening I will be leaving my Husband in the care
of my youngest daughter for a couple of days 
and visiting my favorite craft shop in Tassie it has been too long between visits.


Thanks for dropping in don't forget to say hello.
