ABC - J is for

Jagged! As this is a scheduled post I don't want the title to appear on a feed and give the game away!

I finally think my mojo maybe returning. After being ill over the bank holiday weekend - food poisoning - not fun at all, I managed to catch up with a few cards on monday. The weather was nice so after a lovely day out at RAF Cosford my husband took the boys to the park to wear them out!
This fab image is a rak of Heidi and was a delight to colour (I have been keeping it for a special card) and my blending and highlighting on the leaves has made me very happy at how well it has worked. I have distressed my jagged edges and worked in a bronze ink pad. I had the novel idea to add staples - well it seemed a good idea when I thought of it in the middle of the night and it kinda works, as does the eyelet through the centre of the flower instead of a brad (the flower has been distressed to!) I hope you like it!
recipe -

Papers - basic grey - two scoops
