One Colour and Perfect Distress

Hi There,
Thanks for stopping by.... The Challenges that i am entering this tag into are:
Simon Stamp and Show says "One Colour"
Linda Ledbetter on the Grungy Monday 24 "Perfect Distress" http://www.timholtz.com/vid_perfectdistress.htm. A demmo can be found on this link.

For the tag background I used the wrinkle free technique using Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire I then used chipped sapphire again to stamp up  the town and bitty grunge. I then cut flowers from the Alterations range in Glassine paper and then made up some perfect distress with the powders and egg plant adirondack ink and sprayed them over the flowers a few times with drying in between. It makes it shine which is cool but difficult to pick up with the camera.   I hope you like this .... it came out really well i think, it makes it look like a stormy sky above the town ....not intended but a happy mistake to make.......Are there mistakes in crafting do you think or can we mostly cover them up to make them look like we meant it !!!!! I managed to use the colours from the same family.

Thanks for visiting and i will see you next time take care Mandy x

Stamps used from Stampers Anonymous Rockstar and Bitty Grunge.
