Experimenting Again - Lemon Burning

Lemon burning technique has been used to burn the edges around the torn stamped paper before i mounted onto inked background on the first atc and distressed.

The second atc has also been burned directly on a printed piece of card then distressed by sanding.

The third atc is just an extra one i made today using book text and images plus embossing

It was lovely to play today as have spent the first full day at home for a while. I enjoyed my usual experimenting :=)

These are just fabulous - the butterfly is my absolute favourite - must be because it is spring and I saw a lovely lime coloured one today whilst gardening.

Glad you got time to play today
